There exist two categories of general scientific software: computer algebra systems that perform symbolic computations, and general purpose numerical systems performing numerical computations and designed specifically for scientific applications. The best-known examples in the first category are Maple, Mathematica, Maxima, Axiom, and MuPad. The second category represents a larger market dominated by MATLAB. Scilab belongs to this second category.
