“Scilab, the Open source software for numerical computation and Visualization.”

 

Course Synopsis

image003

Scilab is a scientific software package for numerical computations providing a powerful open computing environment for engineering and scientific applications. Scilab is free software. It is currently used in educational and industrial environments around the world. Scilab is the responsibility of the Scilab Consortium, launched in May 2003.

Scilab includes hundreds of mathematical functions with the possibility to add interactively programs from various languages (FORTRAN, C, C++, JAVA…). It has sophisticated data structures (including lists, polynomials, rational functions, linear systems…), an interpreter and a high level programming language.

 

Course Objectives

This is a 2 full-days introduction course to provide the participants with a platform to learn Scilab quickly and successfully. Therefore, the participants equipped with the knowledge of Scilab to address and solve real engineering & science issues, similar to the commercial software MATLAB
