MATLAB seminar March 27 by MathWorks

Computing and Telecommunications Services is sponsoring a complimentary MATLAB seminar 8:45 a.m.-noon Friday, March 27, in the Hemisphere Room of Hale Library. Jiro Doke, senior application engineer for The MathWorks, will be the presenter. This event is suitable for both new and existing users. All interested faculty, researchers, staff, and students are welcome.

Preregistration is suggested at www.mathworks.com/company/events/seminars/seminar33441.html for the two mini-sessions that will be held.

Session 1: Data Analysis with MATLAB

This overview of the MATLAB environment and demonstration of a typical engineering workflow of solving a technical problem will cover such concepts as:

  • Importing data from various sources
  • Performing statistical analysis
  • Automating analysis routines via automatic m-code generation
  • Generating reports

Session 2: Speeding up MATLAB Applications

This session will introduce tips and tricks for writing efficient MATLAB code to speed up computation.  It is designed for intermediate (or existing) users, but new users may also find it useful.  Some of the concepts covered will be:

  • Understanding memory usage and vectorization
  • Addressing bottlenecks in your code
  • Using Parallel Computing Toolbox to utilize additional resources (multi-core machines and/or computer clusters)

Questions may be directed to Tom McHugh, account manager at The MathWorks (tom.mchugh@mathworks.com, 508-647-7657). The local K-State liaison is Kathy Leonard (kantink@k-state.edu, 785-532-4926).
