In the academic year 2010/2011 I was a MATLAB software assistant at EUI.

What is MATLAB? MATLAB (Matrix Laboratory) is software designed mainly for numerical computing. As opposed to other programming languages, such as Fortran or C/C++, Matlab is designed not to demand low level programming from the user (e.g. matrix inversion is done with one simple command). In particular, it is very easy to use Matlab for matrix manipulations, optimization problems and visualizing the results.

Below you will find some notes on general programming issues in MATLAB and some sample code.

These are useful links to a couple of MATLAB tutorials that are available on-line: Tutorial 1 , Tutorial 2
