 +====== Matlab ======
 +
 +There are two types of Matlab licenses available in the department. The following sections provides an overview of these and explains how to obtain access to each.
 +
 +===== Classroom License =====
 +
 +<box 80% round blue>
 +NOTE1: At undergraduate level Mathworks MATLAB usage is being replaced
 +by GNU Octave and MATLAB will no longer be installed in new lab images.
 +Study plans for undergraduate modules should therefore convert any usage
 +of MATLAB to that of GNU Octave.

 +
 +<box 80% round blue>
 +NOTE2: In the long term Python will replace both MATLAB and Octave and
 +first year students have begun learning Python from 2014.
 +</​box>​
 +
 +The Classroom License is for instructional use only: Research and commercial use is prohibited. The computers in the CAEC, Network and Electronics laboratories have Matlab installed and use this license. These installations are meant to be used in a lecture / practical / homework context for undergraduate and honours subjects.
 +
 +//No installations of Matlab using this license will be performed for any student.// Students are expected to use the laboratories.
 +
 +Academic staff may request the installation of Matlab with this license on their office computers, provided
 +that it will not be used for research and/or commercial work. Direct requests to the Departmental System Administrator.
 +
 +The following toolboxes are included in the classroom license (Matlab / Simulink):
 +  * Simulink
 +  * Control System Toolbox
 +  * Database Toolbox
 +  * MATLAB Compiler
 +  * Model Predictive Control Toolbox
 +  * Neural Network Toolbox
 +  * Optimization Toolbox
 +  * Real-Time Workshop
 +  * Robust Control Toolbox
 +  * Signal Processing Toolbox
 +  * Simulink Control Design
 +  * Stateflow 
 +  * Statistics Toolbox
 +  * Symbolic Math Toolbox
 +  * System Identification Toolbox
 +  * Wavelet Toolbox
 +
 +
 +===== Research License =====
 +
 +Staff and postgraduate students in the department may obtain access to Matlab with a Research license. Typically, this type of license is suitable for work that will result in publications. Currently the Research License includes the following toolboxes.
 +
 +  * Communications Blockset
 +  * Communications System Toolbox
 +  * Control System Toolbox
 +  * DSP System Toolbox
 +  * Fuzzy Logic Toolbox
 +  * Global Optimization Toolbox
 +  * Image Processing Toolbox
 +  * MATLAB Compiler
 +  * Model Predictive Control Toolbox
 +  * Neural Network Toolbox
 +  * Optimization Toolbox
 +  * RF Blockset
 +  * RF Toolbox
 +  * Robust Control Toolbox
 +  * Signal Processing Blockset
 +  * Signal Processing Toolbox
 +  * SimPowerSystems
 +  * SimRF
 +  * Simscape
 +  * Statistics Toolbox
 +  * Symbolic Math Toolbox
 +  * System Identification Toolbox
 +  * Wavelet Toolbox
 +
 +Additional generally used toolboxes will be added as funds are available. In the case of specialised toolboxes, individuals
 +and groups can provide funds for such toolboxes and such toolboxes will be added for their exclusive use.
 +
 +Staff and postgraduate students may request the installation of Matlab with this license on their computers, provided
 +that it will not be used for commercial work. Note that the license is available on campus only and the installation can
 +only be done on official UP office or lab computers. Direct requests to the Departmental System Administrator.
 +
 +
 +===== PDF Documentation =====
 +
 +The PDF documentation for the toolboxes are available on campus at ''​[[http://​lftp.ee.up.ac.za/​Mathworks/​manuals/​]]''​.
 +
 +
 +
 +===== Matlab on the Clusters =====
