In April, CIS offered a series of MATLAB seminars to HMC community. There were five seminar meetings covering three different topics: basic MATLAB programming, advanced MATLAB programming and parallel processing with Parallel Processing Toolbox.
Basic MATLAB programming seminars taught by Jeho Park at CIS covered fundamental, yet essential, MATLAB programming skills for MATLAB beginners. The seminar participants enjoyed creating function m-files and supporting documents. The basic MATLAB seminar attracted many freshmen who wish to prepare themselves for the courses that require MATLAB programming skills. CIS plans to offer additional basic MATLAB seminar classes in early fall semester for those who missed the April seminar meetings. So please stay tuned.
CIS also invited the MathWorks Senior Application Engineer, Doug Eastman, to HMC campus to discuss advanced MATLAB programming topics. The MathWorks on-site seminar discussed how to make use of different MATLAB functions and memory allocation methods for a better computing performance. The presenter also introduced MATLAB parallel processing features that may lead to a significant performance improvement for some number crunching applications. The seminar was very helpful for those who seek ways to improve performance of their MATLAB codes.
