MATLAB is a powerful commercial tool which supports simulation and modeling across a wide range of science and engineering applications. Octave is an open source clone put out by GNU. Both tools make it extremely easy to express mathematical equations in a high-level programming language, and visualize the results. This brief introduction describes the MATLAB language and shows how to get started using it for simple modeling problems.
