1. Matlab Lecture 1

Matlab is a widely used tool in all Engineering fields, and most likely you will encounter it in one or more Engineering courses at Columbia and in the "real" Engineering world. There is no doubt that knowing at least the basics of Matlab is a valuable, if not essential skill to have. Matlab is a very versatile software package that can be expanded by any interest group to match their special computational needs. It is thus not only used for simple or complex arithmetic, but also in image processing, statistical analysis, simulation of many kinds, differential equations, etc.

We begin by looking at some of the very basic functionality of Matlab, like variable declarations, arithmetic, and vector and matrix data structures and manipulation. We then apply this foundation to more complex problems to solve those problems and learn about methods of displaying the solutions.

This lecture serves to build an understanding of the Matlab interface, basic mathematical operations, and the fundamental data structures.
