MATLAB Fundamentals

MATLAB is an integrated technical computing environment from the MathWorks that combines array-based numeric computation, advanced graphics and visualization, and a high-level programming language. Separately licensed toolboxes provide additional domain-specific functionality.

This tutorial provides a comprehensive introduction to the MATLABĀ® technical computing environment. No prior programming experience or knowledge of MATLAB is assumed. Themes of data analysis, visualization, modeling, and programming are explored throughout the course. Topics include:

  • Working with the MATLAB user interface
  • Entering commands and creating variables
  • Analyzing vectors and matrices
  • Visualizing vector and matrix data
  • Working with data files
  • Working with data types
  • Automating commands with scripts
  • Writing programs with branching and loops
  • Writing functions
