Scilab is a scientific software platform for numerical computation providing a powerful open computing environment for engineering and scientific applications.
Scilab is an open source software. Since 1994 it has been distributed freely along with the source code via the Internet. It is currently used in educational and industrial environments around the world. Scilab is produced by the Scilab Consortium, launched in May 2003. The Scilab Consortium has to date 25 members.
Scilab project is not a “research-project team” but a “development-project team” at INRIA Paris-Rocquencourt Research Centre. It is the operational team of Scilab Consortium.
Scilab includes hundreds of mathematical functions with the possibility to add interactively programs from various languages (Fortran, C, C++, ...). It has sophisticated data structures (including lists, polynomials, rational functions, linear systems...), an interpreter and a high level programming language.
Scilab has been conceived to be an open system where the user can define new data types and operations on these data types by overloading operators.
A number of toolboxes are available with the system:
2-D and 3-D graphics, animation.
Linear algebra, sparse matrices.
Polynomials and rational functions.
Simulation: explicit and implicit systems of differential equations solvers.
Scicos: hybrid dynamic systems modeler and simulator.
Classic and robust control, LMI optimization.
Differentiable and non-differentiable optimization.
Graphs and networks.
Interfaces with Computer Algebra (Maple).
Interface with Fortran, Tcl/Tk, C, C++, java, LabVIEW.
A great number of contributions for various domains are available from Scilab Web site.
Scilab works on most UNIX systems including GNU/Linux and on Windows 9X/2000/XP/Vista. Binary versions for these systems are freely available, along with source code.
