The logo represents a L-shaped object which is related to the wave equation.[2] This was the subject of Moler's thesis.[3]

Who is Cleve Moler?[change | change source]

Cleve Moler is a famous mathematician. He is known for his scientific textbooks[4][5] and technical reviews.[6][7][8]

Notable products[change | change source]

MathWorks is known for making powerful software used in many scientific and technical fields.[9]

MATLAB[change | change source]

MATLAB is a programming language made for numerical analysis (especially numerical linear algebra).[10][11][12] It is named after Matrix Laboratory.

Simulation software[change | change source]

MathWorks is also known for their simulation-related products. The most famous one is Simulink.[13][14][15][16][17][18][19] It is very popular as same as MATLAB. There is also SimEvents and Stateflow. SimEvents was made to simulate physical or dynamical events.[20][21][22] On the other hand, Stateflow aims to understand the state (status) of fluid/atmospheric or any other kind of flows.[23][24][25][26][27]
