Program Algorithms Fast

Matlab 7 lets users develop algorithms, analyze data, view data files, and manage projects in signal processing, communication,and test and measurement applications, among others.

The developer says users can program algorithms faster than with C, C++, or Fortran. Tools include an editor for editing and debugging, and a profiler, which records the time spent executing each line of code. The software has functions for performing math operations and analyzing data, including partial differential equations, matrix manipulation and linear algebra, and Fourier analysis and filtering.
