Ease of Use (syntax and techniques that are intuitive and easy to adapt to other problem areas)
Healthy ecosystem (lots of tutorials, examples online, books and other resources
Industry use (looking for the most commonly used software suites within engineering and science)
Adaptability (commonly used outside mathematics. ie. electrical engineering, modeling).
I have narrowed my search down to:
But this list is by no means exclusive. Currently I am leaning towards Matlab, because I have seen it being used in upper year courses in my electrical engineering program.
I would appreciate your input with regard to which software suite would be best and why. Thank you.
