The Scilab Team inheritated the expertise of the french research institute INRIA, famous for computer sciences and automation.

Our team is comprised of engineers and doctors of science from higher education schools or universities, graduated in mathematics, automation, telecommunications, physics or computer science. They have extensive knowledge of Scilab software and its environment and directly participate to Scilab development.

Since early 2017, we are part of ESI Group.

ESI Group is a pioneer and world-leading provider in Virtual Prototyping, leveraging the physics of materials. The team remains committed to a free and open source Scilab software for numerical computation. With the experience of OpenFOAM, ESI Group has already demonstrated its commitment to open-source software for engineers and scientists.

Applied mathematics

Covering the different application fields of Scilab, our team developed a deep understanding of the outstanding principals of numerical computation. This involves the uses of solvers and algorithms for tackling complexe physical problems. The core of Scilab being based on linear algebric librairies, pure programming skills are not enough. Theses are the abilities that were powering geniouses over the times such as alan turing.

This applied knowledge covers the following scientific fields:

  • mathematics
  • optimization
  • statistics
  • signal and image processing
  • control systems

Software development

Developing and maintaining Scilab requires a broad set of programming skills, from a low level of hardware understanding to a high level of interface development. This expertise goes through different programming languages:

  • C/C++
  • JAVA
  • Fortran

The quality of our code proves our expertise in programming.
