Scilab offers an easy to use console for loading data, performing computations and plotting data.Scilab offers a set of functions for 3D plots and graphsFor Optimization: Algorithms in Scilab helps the end user for Simulation to solve constrained and unconstrained continuous and discrete problems. Applications include, but are not limited to, nonlinear optimization, genetic algorithms, simulated annealing and quadratic optimization.For Signal Processing: Scilab helps you visualise, analyse and filter signals in time and frequency domains. Some of the capabilities include, but are not limited to, signal generation, power spectral density estimation, digital FIR and IIR filter design and signal transforms.Xcos is a graphical editor and has a rich library of blocks that help you design hybrid dynamical system models. It also has a palette browser and a compiler/simulator.
Scilab software, stemming from Inria, France is the worldwide open source reference in numerical computation software. Please see www.scilab.org for more details. Scilab is used in all major strategic scientific areas of industry and services such as space, aeronautics, automotive, energy, defense, finance and transport.
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 large number of contributions can be downloaded from Scilab website.Scilab has been built using a number of external libraries.
