Matlab for PhD students

12 - 14 February 2018

New course on basics in Matlab for PhD students:

The three-day course is intended to be an introduction into the numerical software package Matlab.

Matlab allows to write own code in a simple language than may immediately combined with the numerous built-in mathematical functions.

The lecturers will give a presentation along with day-by-day practical exercises.

The number of participants is limited to 12. Late registrants will be put on a waiting list.

The topics include:

  • Getting started with Matlab
  • Graphic functions in Matlab
  • Data Import and Export
  • Basic Programming
  • Convenient built-in Algorithms for Data Analysis
  • (Hopefully) interesting Packages: Toolboxes for Statistics, Optimization, Partial Differential Equations

Date and venue: 12 - 14 February 2018, 9:30 am - 3:30 pm, building 3, seminar room 3
