Tutorial Details: Mixed Programming of MATLAB with FORTRAN or C

Date: Tuesday, April 1, 2008, 01:00 pm - 03:00 pm
Location: 575 Walter
Instructor(s): Shuxia Zhang, MSI

This tutorial will show how to call MATLAB routines from FORTRAN and C codes. Calling MATLAB from within a FORTRAN or C code provides a convenient method for interactive visualization of computational results. The tutorial will include the description of the MATLAB communication functions, which start and end the MATLAB process, how to send data to and from MATLAB, and how to send commands to be processed in MATLAB. The presentation will be followed by a hands-on exercise to practice the mixed programming of FORTRAN or C with MATLAB with an emphasis on interactive visualization.

Level: Intermediate
Prerequisites: Knowledge of C, FORTRAN, and MATLAB
