Tutorial Details: Use of MATLAB for Computation
|Date:||Tuesday, November 1, 2005, 01:00 pm - 03:00 pm|
|Instructor(s):||Shuxia Zhang, MSI|
In the technical computing environment, MATLAB is a powerful high-level programming language. This tutorial will help researchers solve some computational problems using MATLAB functions without spending much time dealing with programming details. We will start with a quick review of MATLAB’s syntax and I/O handlers. More attention will be focused on the use of some computational functions and toolboxes.
Users are encouraged to contact the User Support Staff (firstname.lastname@example.org or (612) 626-0802) about the computation problems you need to solve and/or some specific issues that you meet in solving them. We will use this information to make the tutorial more productive.
This tutorial consists of two parts:
1. A 50-minute lecture describing the MATLAB functions
2. An optional one-hour, hands-on session focusing on the use of these functions for your application.
|Prerequisites:||Some knowledge of linear algebra|
