From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Jump to navigation Jump to search

In computer programming, a scientific language is a programming language optimized for the use of mathematical formulas and matrices. Although these functions can be performed using any language, they are more easily expressed in scientific languages.[1] Scientific languages include MATLAB, FORTRAN, ALGOL, APL,[2] J, Julia, Wolfram Language, and R.

In other fields, scientific language is loosely defined as being grammatically correct, and giving concise and correct information.
