Need help with MATLAB?

MATLAB is a computer program designed for technical calculations. Its name is an abbreviation of "Matrix Laboratory." MATLAB allows users to implement calculations in relatively short programming time. When these calculations have been performed, they can be visualised by means of several plot-routines.

If you’re just starting out with MATLAB, here are a few useful links:

  • The Eindhoven University of Technology has developed a very nice tutorial for MATLAB. This is good for folks who want to simply jump in with a separate open MATLAB window.
  • The MATLAB “Getting Started” Manualis a good reference for those who have some familiarity with MATLAB.
  • If you’ve never seen MATLAB before, you might want to start with this MATLAB Tutorial. There are some video tutorials available (free registration required).
