Tutorial Details: MATLAB Code Debugging and Performance Tuning

Date: Tuesday, August 10, 2010, 01:00 pm - 03:00 pm
Location: 575 Walter
Instructor(s): Shuxia Zhang, MSI

MATLAB is one of the most practical software programs used for numerical calculations and system design. MATLAB applications, however, can run much more slowly than FORTRAN and C codes for the same kind of applications. MATLAB code debugging is therefore an unavoidable component of application development. This tutorial will teach participants how to use MATLAB’s debugging and profiling tools in addition to the basic techniques to write efficient MATLAB codes.

A hands-on practice will follow the lecture. Examples we provide will enable participants to use the debug and profiling tools for writing an efficient MATLAB code. You are also encouraged to bring in your application codes. We will help you debug the code and/or improve the code performance.

Prerequisites: Knowledge of MATLAB coding
