THE MATHWORKS SHIPS MATLAB VERSION 4.0 FOR MICROSOFT WINDOWS

 NATICK, Mass., June 7 /PRNewswire/ -- The MathWorks, Inc., developers of MATLAB(R), today announced shipment of MATLAB Version 4.0 for Microsoft Windows version 3.1. A powerful technical computing environment which has defined the industry standard for high-performance computation, MATLAB 4.0 has extensive new functionality, including 256- color 3D object-oriented visualization capabilities, sparse matrix support, sound output and customizable user interface controls.
 "We are excited to be able to offer the power of MATLAB 4.0 on a PC platform," said John Little, The MathWorks' president and chief executive officer. "MATLAB 4.0 for Windows features a 32-bit implementation that allows users to take advantage of the Windows environment -- without giving up the high performance they've come to expect from MATLAB on other platforms."
 The product also supports any Windows 3.1 sound device, allowing sampled sounds to be manipulated and played directly from MATLAB. In addition, users can paste MATLAB graphics into any other Windows application, either as static bit-mapped images or editable Windows metafiles.
 "These Windows-specific enhancements, together with the other features of Version 4.0 -- a new external interface library, an improved facility for working with external C and Fortran routines, flexible file input/output capabilities, and enhanced debugging and programmable user interface controls -- make MATLAB the most powerful technical computing environment available," said Little.
 MATLAB's numeric computation capabilities, 4GL programming language, graphics, and application-specific toolboxes allow users to analyze and visualize data, optimize engineering systems designs and algorithms, and create mathematical models.
 MATLAB toolboxes extend the product by adding specialized functions for particular applications. These include neural networks, signal processing, control system design and analysis, system identification and optimization. The toolboxes are created by world class experts in their respective fields and represent theory and algorithms at the cutting edge of scientific and engineering research.
 MATLAB 4.0 for Windows is available directly from the company, priced at $1,695 for a single-user license. MATLAB 4.0 has been shipping since September of 1992 on major workstation platforms, including Sun SPARCstation, DEC RISC, HP9000 Series 300/400/700 systems, IBM RS/6000 and Silicon Graphics IRIS 4D workstations.
 The MathWorks, Inc., based Natick, Mass., develops, markets and supports high-performance software for interactive numeric computation, visualization and dynamic system simulation. Its family of products includes MATLAB Version 4.0; SIMULINK(R), for dynamic system modeling & simulation; the recently announced SIMULINK C Code Generator; and the comprehensive family of MATLAB Application Toolboxes.
 The MathWorks' products are used worldwide by more than 140,000 users at commercial and government research laboratories and organizations, as well as by more than 600 leading educational institutions. Customers include Boeing, General Motors, Eastman Kodak, General Electric, E.I. du Pont, and Motorola, M.I.T., and Stanford University. Quantity and educational discounts are available.
