CMPS 1371Introduction to Computing for Engineers

INTRODUCTION

- MATLAB stands for Matrix Laboratory
- MATLAB is one of a number of commercially available, sophisticated mathematical computation tools
- Others include
- Maple
- Mathematica
- MathCad

- Easy to use
- Versatile
- Built in programming language
- Not a general purpose language like C++ or Java
- Efficiently handles numerical calculations and graphics
- Especially involving matrices

MATLAB was originally written in Fortran, then later rewritten in C

- Widespread, especially in the signal processing field
- Tool of choice in Academia for most engineering fields
- Some examples….

These images simulate the visual system used in a housefly brain to detect collisions. The techniques developed are being used in autonomous robot systems that depend upon vision for navigation. The data was processed using MATLAB

These images were created from MRI scan data using MATLAB. The actual data set is included with the standard MATLAB installation, allowing you experiment with manipulating the data yourself.

Results from a finite element analysis code were post processed using MATLAB to create this image.
