# MATLAB

MATLAB is an actively used programming language created in 1984. MATLAB (matrix laboratory) is a multi-paradigm numerical computing environment. A proprietary programming language developed by MathWorks, MATLAB allows matrix manipulations, plotting of functions and data, implementation of algorithms, creation of user interfaces, and interfacing with programs written in other languages, including C, C++, C#, Java, Fortran and Python. Although MATLAB is intended primarily for numerical computing, an optional toolbox uses the MuPAD symbolic engine, allowing access to symbolic computing abilities. Read more on Wikipedia...

### Example code from the Hello World Collection:

% Hello World in MATLAB. disp('Hello World');

### Example code from Linguist:

function [ d, d_mean, d_std ] = normalize( d ) d_mean = mean(d); d = d - repmat(d_mean, size(d,1), 1); d_std = std(d); d = d./ repmat(d_std, size(d,1), 1); end

### Example code from Wikipedia:

[X,Y] = meshgrid(-10:0.25:10,-10:0.25:10); f = sinc(sqrt((X/pi).^2+(Y/pi).^2)); surf(X,Y,f); axis([-10 10 -10 10 -0.3 1]) xlabel('{\bfx}') ylabel('{\bfy}') zlabel('{\bfsinc} ({\bfR})')
