Appendix 5
Selected MATLAB Resources on the
Internet

The name MATLAB stands for matrix laboratory. MATLAB was originally written to provide easy access to matrix software developed by the
LINPACK and EISPACK projects, which together represent the state
of the art in software for matrix computation. MATLAB converts user
commands (including M-files) into C or C++ codes before calling other
program modules (subroutines). Today MATLAB has been developed
to cover many application areas. You may search the internet with the
key word MATLAB to see some evidence.

and EISPACK programs, check the following
