1. INTRODUCTION

MATLAB, which stands for MATrix LABoratory, is a state-of-the-art mathematical software

package, which is used extensively in both academia and industry. It is an interactive program for

numerical computation and data visualization, which along with its programming capabilities

provides a very useful tool for almost all areas of science and engineering. Unlike other

mathematical packages, such as MAPLE or MATHEMATICA, MATLAB cannot perform

symbolic manipulations without the use of additional Toolboxes. It remains however, one of the

leading software packages for numerical computation.
