As one who is really newbie on Python, In MATLAB we can represent the 
codes for the matrix manipulation as really like mathematical forms, e.g.,

MATLAB> H = U*D*V'

It definitely makes the science programmer easier and faster to write 
their codes. Moreover, from some recent versions JIT has been included 
in MATLAB, which speeds up near to C/C++ programs.
