Introduction to MATLAB

This page will be continuously updated as the course progresses.



Slides for the lectures will be posted here shortly before each lecture.

Course contents

Here's a first rough draft of the course contents. The course will kick off with a few lectures on general MATLAB programming, plotting, etc. This will then be followed by some examples of specific applications.


As course literature for the basic MATLAB introduction we'll use the excellent introduction written by Dr. Elzibieta Pekalska. Download it here.

The course is passed upon successful completion of all assignments. The only grades awarded are 'pass' or 'fail'.
