The MATLAB Engine API for Python provides a package for Python to call MATLAB as a computational engine. The engine supports the reference implementation (CPython) for Python versions 2.7, 3.4, 3.5, and 3.6.
To start the MATLAB engine within a Python session, you first must install the engine API as a Python package.
By default, the installer builds the engine API for Python in
The installer installs the engine in the default Python folder.
Options for starting the MATLAB Engine for Python.
How to connect the MATLAB Engine for Python to a shared MATLAB session that is already running on your local machine.
How to return an output argument from a MATLAB function. How to read multiple outputs from a function. What to do when the MATLAB function does not return an output argument.
This example shows how to call the MATLAB
asynchronously from Python and retrieve the square root later.
This example shows how to call a MATLAB script to compute the area of a triangle from Python.
This example shows how to redirect standard output and standard
error from a MATLAB function to Python
This example shows how to add variables to the MATLAB engine workspace in Python.
This example shows how to create an object from a MATLAB handle class and call its methods in Python.
This example shows how to create a MATLAB array
in Python and pass it as the input argument to the MATLAB
This example shows how to sort data about patients into lists of smokers and nonsmokers in Python and plot blood pressure readings for the patients with MATLAB.
From Python, you can access supporting documentation for all MATLAB functions.

What you need to write and build MATLAB engine applications.
When you pass Python data as input arguments to MATLAB functions, the MATLAB Engine for Python converts the data into equivalent MATLAB data types.
When MATLAB functions return output arguments, the MATLAB Engine API for Python converts the data into equivalent Python data types.
matlab Python package provides array
classes to represent arrays of MATLAB numeric types as Python variables
so that MATLAB arrays can be passed between Python and MATLAB.
MATLAB stores all numeric values as double-precision floating point numbers by default.
