To save memory, run matlab from terminal in text mode, that is without the java virtual machine:
Code:
matlab -nojvm
Also you may consider to compress data in memory using the matlab command "pack". Also have a look at the following Mathworks support pages:

I am running matlab2007b on slackware, it requires 512Mb, 1024 recommended! But You could try by using fluxbox instead of gnome or kde. It'll help a lot.

Or, if you don't need much, you could try out scilab (www.scilab.org), it requires 40 MB more or less.

text mode: scilab -nw

No. And unfortunately the licenses are quite expensive. If you look for a free software similar to Matlab, have a look at Octave.

I suggest scilab www.scilab.org. Octave still commits some errors. I'm not talking about bugs, I am talking about errors.
