Tutorial Details: MATLAB: A Powerful Tool for Computation and Visualization

Date: Tuesday, September 23, 2008, 01:00 pm - 03:00 pm
Location: 402 Walter
Instructor(s): Ravishankar Chityala, MSI

MATLAB is an integrated technical computing environment that combines numeric computation, graphics and visualization, and a high-level programming language. MATLAB includes hundreds of functions for data analysis and visualization, numeric and symbolic computation engineering, and scientific graphics modeling and simulation.

This tutorial consists of two parts: 1) A 90-minute lecture describing the use of computation and visualization functions and tools.

2) An optional one-hour, hands-on session focusing on the use of these functions for your application.

Prerequisites: Some knowledge of linear algebra and C
