library was originally developed as a set of auxilary classes and functions for Ellipsodal Toolbox for Matlab project back in 2014. Then in 2016 it was decided to separate the library from "Ellipsoidal Toolbox" so that it can be developed as an independent open-source project.

Right from the begining we have been following Test Driven Development (TTD) approach by implementing and extending a test coverage for most of the library functions. Our ideology is to cover every new feature with meanigful tests and every bug found - with negative tests.


Getting started with MatrixBerry-Core is super easy! Simply fork this repository and follow the instructions below. Or, if you'd like to check out what MatrixBerry-Core is capable of, take a look at the Doxygen documentation.

Getting Started with MatrixBerry-Core


You're going to need:

Getting Set Up

  1. Fork this repository on Github.
  2. Clone your forked repository (not our original one) to your hard drive with
git clone
  1. cd mxberry-core
  2. Start Matlab and make sure to run s_install script from install subfolder. You can do this either manually from Matlab command line or via a shell script for a specific Matlab version in install subfolder.
# either run this from within Matlab
cd install;
# OR run this from shell
cd install
./ #for windows platform use a bat script

Please keep in mind that if you do not use the start script from install subfolder to start Matlab you need to make sure that your "Start in" directory is always mxberry-core/install. That is because the very first run of s_install script creates javaclasspath.txt file with absolute paths to some jar files that are a part of MatrixBerry-Core library. As part of this very first run the jar files are added to dynamic Java path of Matlab JVM. All subsequent Matlab runs with "Start in" directory set to mxberry-core/install load the created javaclasspath.txt file thus adding the jar files to static Java path of Matlab JVM.

MatrixBerry-Core was built by Peter Gagarinov and Ilya Rublev while working on Ellipsoidal Toolbox for Matlab at Computation Mathematics and Cybernetics Faculty of Lomonosov Moscow State University, System Analysis Department.
