Up and Running with MATLAB

with Patrick Royal

Video: Welcome

(music playing) Hi I'm Patrick Royal, and welcome to Up and Running with MATLAB. What we're exploring here are the core features and ways of thinking, that will serve you well as you use MATLAB. MATLAB is a unique and technical programming language that's incredibly powerful when used correctly. In this course, we'll cover the basics of programming in MATLAB. We'll learn about syntax, commands, and programming structure. More importantly, though, we'll also explore what it means to be working in this programming language, and new ways of thinking about variables and other data structures.

MATLAB is one of the most popular programming languages today for engineers and scientists, and with good reason—it allows data analysts to work efficiently with large amounts of data. Let author Patrick Royal show you how to harness the MATLAB tools and gain a level of fluency with the language. He shows how to work with the core syntax, which is significantly different than other programming languages; create scripts and functions; debug your program; and finally, work with plots, annotations, and images. The final chapter covers external toolboxes—extensions and libraries that automate, complement, and enhance existing MATLAB functionality.

Topics include:
  • Installing MATLAB
  • Working with MATLAB variables
  • Working with matrix and scalar operations
  • Creating functions
  • Understanding performance considerations
  • Building basic plots
  • Creating responsive programs
  • Editing variables manually
  • Working with the Statistics Toolbox

More importantly, though, we'll also explore what it means to be working in this programming language, and new ways of thinking about variables and other data structures.

We'll look at the different types of MATLAB programs and how to manage code effectively. We'll also cover other important topics for statistical analysis. Including performance considerations, display, and user interfaces. By the end of this course, you can expect to be comfortable working with a wide variety of different types of data through the MATLAB interface. You'll be familiar with the basic commands that you'll use every day in MATLAB. As well as the structure for interpreting and using new commands. Welcome to Up and Running with MATLAB.
