Tutorial Details: Matlab Code Debugging and Performance Tuning

Date: Thursday, July 11, 2013, 01:00 pm - 03:00 pm
Location: 575 Walter
Instructor(s): Shuxia Zhang, MSI

Matlab is one of the most practical software packages used for numerical calculations and system design. Matlab applications, however, can run much slower compared to 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 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. Provided examples will enable the users to use the debug and profiling tools for writing an efficient Matlab code. Attendees are also encouraged to bring in your application codes. MSI staff will help you debug the code and/or improve the code performance.

Prerequisites: Knowledge of Matlab coding
