What is MATLAB, and where can I access it at IU?

MATLAB is a program for doing numerical computation, especially linear algebra. It began as a "MATrix LABoratory" program, intended to provide interactive access to the libraries Linpack and Eispack. It has since grown well beyond these libraries to become a powerful tool for visualization, programming, research, engineering, and communication. For more, see the MATLAB website.

At Indiana University, MATLAB is installed on the UITS shared IU supercomputer systems, as well as on the Windows and Mac computers in the Student Technology Centers (STCs) at IU Bloomington.

Students, faculty, and staff can download and install MATLAB on their lab and personal machines. For help, see Download, install, or update MATLAB.

This software is also available via IUanyWare.

If you have questions about using statistical and mathematical software at Indiana University, contact Research Analytics. Research Analytics is located on the IU Bloomington campus at Woodburn Hall 200; staff are available for consultation Monday-Friday 9am-noon and by appointment.
