INTRODUCTION


What is matlab
What is MATLAB?

  • MATLAB stands for Matrix Laboratory

  • MATLAB is one of a number of commercially available, sophisticated mathematical computation tools

  • Others include

    • Maple

    • Mathematica

    • MathCad


Why matlab
Why MATLAB

  • 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


How is matlab used in industry
How is MATLAB used in Industry?

  • Widespread, especially in the signal processing field

  • Tool of choice in Academia for most engineering fields

  • Some examples….


Electrical engineering
Electrical Engineering

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


Biomedical engineering
Biomedical Engineering

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.


Fluid dynamics
Fluid Dynamics

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