# [Matlab] - Statistical abilities

Hi Guys,

I am new to Matlab, and I wanted to ask, does Matlab support most of the common Statistical procedures ? For example, can I easily perform Regression (including diagnostics), Logistic Regression (including Hosmer & Lemeshow statistic, roc curves,....), Survival Analysis, .......

Another question, can I use Matlab and R together, I mean, do they "talk" to each other ? Can I write an Algorithm in Matlab, that send objects to R (data for that matter) and get results from R after running some package that Matlab don't have ?

cheers !
