We are running version 5.3 (also known as Release 11). Matlab is supported on all the computers in the Unix Cluster. PPPL has a single floating license for this product. However, if this license is in use, MATLAB will automatically use one of the Princeton University licenses, which should only be used for educational purposes.

Documentation is obtained from matlab(1), the command matlabdoc (type matlabdoc -h for documentation), and at https://w3.pppl.gov/misc/matlab/helpdesk.html. The last includes manuals in PDF format. You can see many examples of using MATLAB by typing demo when running the program.
