Some of your MATLAB application may require more Java Heap Memory than the default. You may want to edit your ~/.matlab/R2017a/matlab.prf. If you do not have it, just create the file

1. Create matlab.prf

$ touch ~/.matlab/R2017a/matlab.prf

2. Increase memory to 36GB

$ vim ~/.matlab/R2017a/matlab.prf
