About Matlab R2010b (Multi-Platform)

The preferred method of running Matlab under Brown's new TAH license is to request a Designated Computer License that may be used without a connection to Brown's network.

Licensed for academic and research use by Brown faculty, staff and registered students.

Matlab usage is controlled by a license manager running on a Brown server.


Matlab (vendor: The MathWorks) is a high performance computational system for numerical analysis, matrix computation, signal processing and graphics. You can enter mathematical functions in an intuitive manner without the need for traditional programming. You can run Matlab from the Matlab command line or by writing script files called 'M-files'. Matlab contains a fairly comprehensive mathematical and graphics library, and also may be extended to specialized functions using the Simulink tool and specialized toolboxes.
