Hello everyone,

I want to buy MATLAB and I was wondering what toolboxes will I need to develop my own code (MHD, plasma. Basically Navier Stokes + Maxwell). Thank you.

You prototype your code in Python (free) and I don't believe there are any specific toolboxes for those sets of physics.

Matlab Toolboxes are not organized in physical areas. Toolboxes consist of commands for signal processing, statistics, curve fitting...

It depends on what you want to do but you need:
- Matlab (itself)
- Matlab Coder (for C or C++ Code), Matab Compiler (standalone programs) oder Compiler SDK (libraries for other programming languages)
- Different Toolboxes for whatever you want

You are a starter in Matlab, so i think you can also use Python, because it is similiar to Matlab (with an easy syntax). You get so Libraries like NumPy, SciPy, matplotlib and so on for free.

And if you don't like Python you can also use PDL. It is the Perl equivalent to NumPy ...

I know I can use Python, but I need to know about Matlab Toolboxes. Which ones do you recommend?

Thanks. What toolboxes do you recommend? (I can see you speak German by the casual "oder" slip there ).

You will probably want the parallel computing toolbox.

I would not worry about toolboxes when starting out. Matlab has a good development environment, editor & graphics. You might consider some of the expensive toolkits later, depending on the direction your development takes you. It is a good policy to not buy something until you really need it. If your development takes you in the direction of parallel processing, then add that toolkit as a learning tool. If you get to the production stage, then you might consider the compiler or translating your code to a more efficient language. If you have proved your code in Matlab, this code can serve as a reference as you develop the faster code.
