2 MATLAB, short for MATrix LABoratory is a programming package specifically designed for quick and easy scientific calculations and I/O. It has literally hundreds of built-in functions for a wide variety of computations and many toolboxes designed for specific research disciplines, including statistics, optimization, solution of partial differential equations, data analysis. For CME200, you need a solid knowledge of basic MATLAB commands and several more advanced features including two- and three-dimensional graphics, solution of algebraic equations, solution of ordinary differential equations, calculations with matrices and solutions of linear systems of equations. Most of what you need is discussed here, but most importantly, after this tutorial you should be able to find your way around the MATLAB help function and browser functions to find any additional features you may need or want to use. General directions This is a hands-on tutorial. MATLAB commands for you to type are printed in bold letters . Bold letters are also used to make MATLAB expressions that are in lower case more visible when found in a sentence. Where to find MATLAB? For those who own a PC, the cheap student edition of MATLAB is available at the bookstore. We recommend you buy a copy of this version because you will likely use it throughout your Stanford career and beyond . If you do not have your own PC, you will find that MATLAB is available on a wide variety of platforms around campus. This tutorial assumes you can open the MATLAB GUI. If you are running on a UNIX machine, you can also run
