Scilab is a scientific software package for numerical computations providing a powerful open computing environment for engineering and scientific applications.

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


Scilab has been designed to be an open system where the user can define new data types and operations on these data types by using overloading.

A number of toolboxes are available with the system:

  • 2-D and 3-D graphics, animation
  • Linear algebra, sparse matrices
  • Polynomials and rational functions
  • Interpolation, approximation
  • Simulation: ODE solver and DAE solver
  • Scicos: a hybrid dynamic systems modeler and simulator
  • Classic and robust control, LMI optimization
  • Differentiable and non-differentiable optimization
  • Signal processing
  • Metanet: graphs and networks
  • Parallel Scilab
  • Statistics
  • Interface with Computer Algebra: Maple package for Scilab code generation
  • Interface with Fortran, Tcl/Tk, C, C++, Java, LabVIEW
  • And a large number of contributions for various domains.

A large number of contributions can be downloaded from Scilab Web site.
