Tutorial Details: MATLAB Code Debugging and Performance Tuning

Date: Tuesday, March 8, 2011, 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 an unavoidable component of the application development. This tutorial will teach users 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 will enable the users to use the debugging and profiling tools for writing an efficient MATLAB code. Attendees are also encouraged to bring in their application codes. The user support staff will help debug the code and/or improve the code performance.

Prerequisites: Knowledge of MATLAB coding
