Tutorial Details: MATLAB-A Powerful Computation Tool

Date: Thursday, April 7, 2005, 01:00 pm - 03:00 pm
Location: 585 Walter
Instructor(s): Shuxia Zhang, MSI

In the technical computing environment MATLAB is a powerful, high-level programming language. This tutorial will help researchers solve computational problems using MATLAB functions, without spending much time dealing with programming details. This tutorial starts with a quick review on MATLAB's syntax and I/O handlers. There will be a focus on the use of computational functions and toolboxes.

Users are encouraged to contact the User Support Staff ( or 612-626-0802) about the computation problems you need to solve and/or some specific issues that you meet in solving them. This kind of input will be used within the tutorial whenever possible.

This tutorial consists of two parts:

1) A 50-minute lecture to describe the MATLAB functions 2) An optional 1-hour, hands-on session focusing on the use of these functions for your application.

Prerequisites: None
