A Comprehensive Course for Programming with Scilab

A good foundation is important to migrate to open source solutions. Knowing what is required before jumping into the open source would save a lot of time for path finding.


“Scilab, the Open source software for numerical computation and Visualization.”

 

Course Synopsis

image003

Scilab is a scientific software package for numerical computations providing a powerful open computing environment for engineering and scientific applications. Scilab is free software. It is currently used in educational and industrial environments around the world. Scilab is the responsibility of the Scilab Consortium, launched in May 2003.

Scilab includes hundreds of mathematical functions with the possibility to add interactively programs from various languages (FORTRAN, C, C++, JAVA…). It has sophisticated data structures (including lists, polynomials, rational functions, linear systems…), an interpreter and a high level programming language.

 

Course Objectives

Objectives This 3 day course is designed ideally for anyone beginning to use Scilab and/or would like to learn about the Scilab environment. Essential Scilab topics such as advanced calculator, manipulating matrices, utility commands and graphics, as well as advanced topics like Scilab programming, curve fitting and Graphical User Interface are comprehensively covered throughout this course.
