MATLAB is a programming language developed by MathWorks. It started out as a matrix programming language where linear algebra programming was simple. It can be run both under interactive sessions and as a batch job. MATLAB proposes toolbox for specific applications like statistics analysis, machine learning and finance.

Mathematica is the creation of Stephen Wolfram. At the heart of Mathematica is a computer algebra system, that is, a system for doing algebraic manipulations symbolically (and therefore exactly). However, Mathematica also incorporates floating point (or finite precision) computation, arbitrary precision arithmetic, graphics, and text processing. It is also a programming environment.
