MATLAB Licensed Toolboxes

The basic MATLAB product is augmented with toolboxes and compatible products, which all tend to be lumped together by calling them "toolboxes." License fees vary by the license type (Concurrent, Group or TAH Student), by the toolbox, and by the number of users licensed to use the toolbox.


Release R2015b



Toolboxes Available Under the Concurrent License

The following suite of toolboxes is basic to the Concurrent license:

MATLAB environment A high-level language and interactive environment that enables you to perform computationally intensive tasks faster than traditional programming languages such as C, C++ and Fortran
Simulink An environment for multidomain simulation and Model-Based Design for dynamic and embedded systems
Control System Design and analyze feedback control systems
Financial Analyze financial data and develop financial algorithms
Image Processing Image processing, analysis and algorithm development
Optimization General and large-scale optimization of nonlinear problems, linear programming, quadratic programming, nonlinear least-squares, solving nonlinear equations
Signal Processing Analog and digital signal processing tools
Statistics and Machine Learning Functions and graphical user interfaces for statistical analysis, including linear and nonlinear modeling, multivariate statistics, calculation and fitting of probability distributions, and hypothesis testing.
System Identification Create linear and nonlinear dynamic models from measured input-output data
Wavelet (Signal and Image Processing) Analyze, compress and denoise signals and images

Additional Toolboxes Available Under the Concurrent License

The following suite of toolboxes is also available under the Concurrent license.

Some of these toolboxes are available only on specific operating systems. See System Requirements to generate a full list of available products for your intended operating system. That full listing will include toolboxes that are not licensed for NU use.

Some of these toolboxes are available in very limited numbers. Some toolboxes are restricted to certain subnets or IP addresses.
