SLICOT Working Note 2009-1: August 2009.

SLICOT is a comprehensive numerical software package for control systems analysis and design. While based on highly performant Fortran routines, MATLAB and Scilab interfaces provide convenient access for users. In this survey, we summarize the functionality contained in the three SLICOT toolboxes for (i) basic tasks in systems and control, (ii) system identification, and (iii) model reduction. Several examples illustrate the use of these toolboxes for addressing frequent computational tasks.
