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

Date: Thursday, October 7, 2010, 01:00 pm - 03:30 pm
Location: Rooms 402 and 575 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 in 402 Walter 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 applications in 575 Walter.

Level: Introductory
Prerequisites: Some knowledge of linear algebra and C
