Workshop Description

MATLAByrinth, is a series of four comprehensive workshops on MATLAB aimed at beginners in scientific research. Participants will learn about using tools available in MATLAB for modeling complex scientific problems. The third workshop, “MATLAByrinth Part 4: Characterizing results with MATLAB” is recommended for those who have a strong background in programming, but need a quick introduction to tools in MATLAB to characterize scientific data from experiments or computations. In this session, ordinary differential equations, partial differential equations, solving system of algebraic equations, interpolation, curve fitting and plotting tools required to plot graphs for publication purposes will be discussed in length with various examples. The session will end with utilizing the concepts learnt to model complex mathematical problem and characterizing a dataset so that the participants can have get a basic idea about how to approach their problem in hand.  Participants attending this workshop are expected to be familiar with basics of MATLAB programming especially matrix operations, math functions in MATLAB, symbolic variables and expressions and writing user-defined functions. Please make sure you have MATLAB (version 2016-Current) downloaded on your computer prior to the session.  PLEASE NOTE: It is not required to take all 3 workshops!
