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 MATLABâ€™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 (help@msi.umn.edu 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.
