MATLAB® is the high-level language and interactive environment used by millions of engineers and scientists worldwide. It lets you explore and visualize ideas and collaborate across disciplines including signal and image processing, communications, control systems, and computational finance.

You can use MATLAB in projects such as modeling energy consumption to build smart power grids, developing control algorithms for hypersonic vehicles, analyzing weather data to visualize the track and intensity of hurricanes, and running millions of simulations to pinpoint optimal dosing for antibiotics.

HPC Docs

Just like many applications on the cluster we have multiple supported versions of Matlab on the cluster.  The default version of matlab is 2012a.  You can get a full list of all available version by running the command "module avail matlab".  See modules for details on the module command.

You can find several tutorials on the matlab website at
