Do Mathematica Stack Exchange, MathOverflow, Stack Overflow, Super User and Cross Validated Stack Exchange accept MATLAB questions?

If not, could someone suggest good question and answers forums for MATLAB (specifically for communications - signal processing, fourier transformation,...)?

It would be great if we would have MATLAB Stack Exchange.

  • ` is not the same as " and it certainly is not a substitute for marking words bold

    StackOverflow accepts MatLab questions, they have the appropriate tag for "MatLab". Apr 6, 2017 at 17:44
  • @MetaOverflow - Of course not every MatLab question is on topic at Stackoverflow, it still has to be within scope, just like every computer question isn't on topic at Superuser.

  • @Ramhound If his question is odd topic, it should not even be on any Stack Exchange site Apr 6, 2017 at 17:50
  • @ABusyProgrammer - What do you mean?

  • @Ramhound Blame auto correct. I meant "off topic" instead of "odd topic" Apr 6, 2017 at 18:05
  • @ABusyProgrammer: A question being off-topic on SO doesn't mean it's off-topic everywhere else, or even that it has nothing to do with programming. I don't know much about MATLAB, but I would be surprised indeed if there were no questions about it that could be asked on SE that didn't actually have to do with practical problems unique to software development.

Mathematica is an entirely different product (by Wolfram), MATLAB questions don't belong on that site. MathOverflow is a site about mathematical research. Super User is for usage questions, not programming questions.

There is a proposal for MATLAB site, which does not get much attention.


As a user of Stack Overflow, I know that we accept questions regarding MATLAB issues. You simply need to tag "MATLAB" with your question to get relevant assistance.

I haven't used Super User or Cross-Validated, but @Gerry has covered those.

As for creating a site specifically for MATLAB questions on the Stack Exchange network, I feel that it would not attract enough visitors, as MATLAB is only one programming language, and it is already accessible via other sites on the Stack Exchange network. However, that's just what I feel, and any opinions are welcome in the comments box.

If you want to support a proposal for a MATLAB-specific site, then visit this link on Area 51: MATLAB proposal
