MATLAB information sessions are Oct. 1

All Students, faculty and staff are welcome to attend.

Two sessions on MATLAB computational software will be held Oct. 1 in the Jackie Gaughan Multicultural Center. The sessions — which start at 9:45 a.m. and 1:30 p.m. — are free and open to students, faculty and staff.

MATLAB is a high-level language and interactive environment for numerical computation, visualization and programming.

The first session, "Data Analysis and Visualization in MATLAB," is 9:45 to 11:45 a.m. MathWorks representatives will demonstrate how to acquire, analyze, and visualize data through mathematical, statistical, and engineering functions that support common engineering operations. The session also provides an overview of the MATLAB technical computing environment.

The second session, "Optimizing and Accelerating MATLAB Code," is 1:30 to 3:45 p.m. The presentation will include simple ways to optimize MATLAB code to reduce the execution time of computationally intensive MATLAB applications. Common pitfalls in writing MATLAB code and show how to automatically generate portable C source code from MATLAB algorithms to accelerate computationally intensive portions of your code will be addressed. High-level programming constructs from the Parallel Computing Toolbox will be introduced that allow users to create and run parallel MATLAB applications on multicore processors, GPU’s and clusters without low-level CUDA or MPI programming.
