IEOR 4106: Introduction to Operations Research: Stochastic Models Spring 2011, Professor Whitt Numerical Part of Homework Assignment 3: Tuesday, February 1 Markov Chains Due on Tuesday, February 15), an extra week is given, To be discussed at the recitation on Monday, February 14. Computational Exercises with Matlab This part of the homework assignment emphasizes computational exercises that should be done on a computer. The intended approach is to use MATLAB, which is available to students via the IEOR Computer Lab in Mudd 301. The MATLAB program is also available on the computers in Butler. But you do not need to use MATLAB. You could use MATHEMATICA or some other software. Here are more details on the computer lab in 301 Mudd. These may change from time to time: 1. Students swipe their cards to get into the room. At this time, there are no time limits on lab access (24x7). Students should not eat or drink in the lab or move any of the furniture or equipment. Wireless connectivity is available for brought-in laptops. Power outlets are available for laptops at the first table in from the front door. 2. Students use their Columbia UNI as their user name and previous password (if they had a previous IEOR account). Students with a brand new IEOR lab account should use the last 4 digits of their social security number (or the last 4 digits of the temporary number assigned instead of the social security number) as their password. After login, the password can be changed by pressing CTRL+ALT+DELETE. 3. To access matlab, find matlab from the list after clicking on start and then programs. 4. No IEOR printers are provided. Users can print to Columbia AcIS printers which are located in the Gussman Lab room 251. There are printer icons for mudd251a mudd251b mudd251c and mudd251d. If students do not have a print quota or their print quota has expired, they can purchase pages at Philosophy Hall, Room 102. 5. The help contact on computer access is Administrator Michael Mostow, mm1812@columbia.edu
