What is SciLab?
Scilab is a sophisticated computing environment for engineering and scientific purposes that is free and open-source software for numerical calculation. Scilab is free to download and use because it is open-source and licensed under the GPL License.
Hundreds of mathematical functions are available in Scilab. It comes with a high-level programming language that gives you access to complex data structures as well as 2-D and 3-D graphical features.
Benefits and Features:
- A great variety of features are offered in Scilab:
Maths & Simulation
Mathematical operations and data analysis are common engineering and scientific applications.
2-D & 3-D Visualization
Graphics functions to visualize, annotate and export data and many ways to create and customize various types of plots and charts.
Algorithms for solving continuous and discrete optimization problems, both limited and unconstrained.
Tools to perform data analysis and modeling
Standard algorithms and tools for control system study
Visualize, analyze and filter signals in time and frequency domains.
Enhance Scilab’s inherent capabilities and manage data exchanges with third-party applications.
Xcos – Dynamic systems modeling
Modeling mechanical systems, hydraulic circuits, control systems…
Scilab’s ability to interface to third-party technologies and apps makes it a unique platform for bringing together scripts written in many programming languages into a single, unified language, making distribution, backup, and usage easier.
