Wolfram Research Introduces the Mathematica Symbolic Toolbox for MATLAB
Available Free to Mathematica and MATLAB Users

CHAMPAIGN, Illinois-Wolfram Research recently announced the Mathematica
Symbolic Toolbox for MATLAB Version 1.0. The Toolbox makes it easy to use
Mathematica's powerful symbolic and high-precision numeric capabilities
from within MATLAB. 

The Mathematica Symbolic Toolbox for MATLAB allows users to construct
matrices in either Mathematica or MATLAB and pass them to the other, and to
freely mix Mathematica code and MATLAB code within a single environment.
The Mathematica Symbolic Toolbox for MATLAB is implemented as a single
MEX-file and is based on MathLink, a communication protocol developed by
Wolfram Research.

The Mathematica Symbolic Toolbox for MATLAB works with all MathLink-capable
versions of Mathematica 2.2. The Toolbox gives users full access to the
Mathematica kernel and Mathematica's high-level programming language from
MATLAB. With the Toolbox, MATLAB users can, for example, execute programs
created in Mathematica or access any one of Mathematica's hundreds of
mathematical functions directly from MATLAB.

The Toolbox provides a transparent connection between Mathematica and
MATLAB, with both programs running on the same computer or between
different computers on a network. This capability is especially useful in
schools and at corporate sites where Mathematica and MATLAB might be
licensed for different machines.

Price and Availability
The Mathematica Symbolic Toolbox for MATLAB is available at no charge. It
requires MATLAB 3.5 or 4.x and a MathLink-capable version of Mathematica
Version 2.2, including Mathematica for Macintosh, Unix, NEXTSTEP, and
VAX/VMS machines (and soon Microsoft Windows 3.1 and Windows NT.) 

Users can obtain a free copy of the Toolbox from MathSource, Wolfram
Research's electronic resource for Mathematica-related materials. To
request the Mathematica Symbolic Toolbox for MATLAB, users may connect via
anonymous ftp to mathsource.wri.com and look in the directory /pub/WhatsNew
for either the file matlab2math.sea.hqx (for Macintosh) or
matlab2math.tar.Z (for Unix). Or, users may simply send the email message
"send 0205-951" to mathsource at wri.com. 

About MathLink
MathLink is a communication protocol developed by Wolfram Research that
lets users easily unite the capabilities of Mathematica with other programs
and applications in one integrated environment. Links can be created to:
call another program from Mathematica; call Mathematica from another
program; or call one or more Mathematica kernels from another Mathematica
kernel. This communication can take place between programs on a single
machine or between programs on different machines connected on a network.
The open architecture of MathLink allows users to easily create links from
their own programs to Mathematica, as well as between Mathematica and
commercial applications, such as MATLAB.
