Numerical computation IDE for engineering and scientific applications

Scilab includes hundreds of mathematical functions. It has a high level programming language allowing access to advanced data structures, 2-D and 3-D graphical functions.

A large number of functionalities is included in Scilab:

  • Maths & Simulation For usual engineering and science applications including mathematical operations and data analysis.
  • 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.
  • Optimization Algorithms to solve constrained and unconstrained continuous and discrete optimization problems.
  • Statistics Tools to perform data analysis and modeling
  • Control System Design & Analysis Standard algorithms and tools for control system study
  • Signal Processing Visualize, analyze and filter signals in time and frequency domains.
  • Application Development Increase Scilab native functionalities and manage data exchanges with external tools.
  • Xcos - Hybrid dynamic systems modeler and simulator Modeling mechanical systems, hydraulic circuits, control systems...

Thanks to its ability to interconnect with third-party technologies and applications, Scilab can also act as a unique platform to bring together codes written in different programming languages in a single, unified language, thus facilitating their distribution, their back-up and use.
