About MATLAB MATLAB (MATrix LABoratory) is a high level language made for: Numerical Computation (Technical computing) Visualization Application Development Everything is a matrix – easy to do Linear Algebra and other mathematical fields that use Linear Algebra (Statistics, Fourier Analysis, Optimization, Filtering,…) Useful tool for mathematical analysis and simulation Djordje Gligorijevic, Temple University, Spring 2015

3 MATLAB Software Access
All Temple University in-campus computers have student-version MATLAB installed Temple University also provides a student license for every student, just go to MATLAB Site Licensed Software page: https://computerservices.temple.edu/matlab-site-licensed-software Djordje Gligorijevic, Temple University, Spring 2015

MATLAB competition Due to its cost, MATLAB has a hard time finding a dominance in the industry. Other languages provide a “bigger bang for the buck” thanks to the active communities that maintain widely used libraries. An examples of such languages that have became a “hot topic” recently are: Python (NumPy, SciPy, Matplotlib, SciKit Learn,…) R However, MATLAB is still completely dominating when it comes to performance. Djordje Gligorijevic, Temple University, Spring 2015

7 There are a few predefined variables in MATLAB:
MATLAB Variables There are a few predefined variables in MATLAB: ans Variable which has been assigned a value of most recent expression, which hasn’t had assigned a value of its output to a specific variable pi Number pi = eps Smallest difference between two numbers MATALB can see  inf Stands for an infinite value NaN Undefined value (Not-a-Number), Ex. 0/0 i Imaginary one Djordje Gligorijevic, Temple University, Spring 2015

8 Djordje Gligorijevic, Temple University, Spring 2015
Matlab Structures Numeric Types: Matlab provides wide range of numerical and floating point types such are double, int (8,16,32 and 64 bits), uint ( 8,16,32,64 bits). Some functions on numeric types: Djordje Gligorijevic, Temple University, Spring 2015

9 Elementary math functions
sqrt(x) Square root sin(x) Sinus x (in radians) exp(x) Exponential function - ex cos(x) Cosinus s abs(x) Absolute value tan(x) Tangens x log(x) Natural logarithm - ln(x), loge(x) cot(x) Cotangens x log10(x) Logarithm with basis 10 round(x) Round to an integer factorial(x) Factoriel x – x! ceil(x) Round to higher value fix(x) Round to lower value rem(y,x) Remainder of x/y division sign(x) Signum function Djordje Gligorijevic, Temple University, Spring 2015

10 Matlab Structures, Contd.
Matrices and Vectors To enter a matrix: >> A = [2, 5, 3; 6, 4, 1] >> B = [1:1.5:6; ] >> for i=1:4 for j=1:3 C(i,j)=i*j; end >> D =[]; D=[D;5]; D=[D;6;7] >> E = zeros(4, 5) Djordje Gligorijevic, Temple University, Spring 2015

11 Matlab Structures, Contd.
Matrices and Vectors As every variable in MATLAB can be a matrix, we can do basic operations on them: Addition: >> C = A + B Subtraction: >> D = A – B Multiplication: >> E = A * B (Matrix multiplication) >> E = A .* B (Element wise multiplication, A and B same size) Division: Left Division and Right Division >> F = A . / B (Element wise division) >> F = A / B = A*inv(B) (A * inverse of B) >> F = A . \ B (Element wise division) >> F = A \ B=inv(A)*B (inverse of A * B) Djordje Gligorijevic, Temple University, Spring 2015

12 Elementary matrix functions
max Maximum of elements + Matrix addition min Minimum of elements - Matrix substraction sum Sum of elements * Matrix multiplication prod Product of elements / Matrix division median Median (Middle value) \ Left matrix division mean Mean (Agerage) ^ Power std Standard deviation ' Transpose any Is there any zero inv Inverse of the matrix Never use it!!!! all Are all elements zero sort Sort columns (or rows) Djordje Gligorijevic, Temple University, Spring 2015

13 Generating basic matrices
Matrix with ZEROS: >> A = zeros(m, n) Matrix with ONES: >> B = ones(m, n) IDENTITY Matrix: >> I = eye(m, n) RANDOM Matrix: >> I = rand(m, n) MAGIC SQUARE Matrix: >> I = magic(n) m  Rows n  Columns zeros, ones, eye, rand, magic  Matlab functions Djordje Gligorijevic, Temple University, Spring 2015

14 Random Number Generators
Rand(m,n): matrix with each entry ~ U(0,1) Randn(m,n): standard normal distribution Mvnrnd(Mu, Sigma): Multivariate normal random numbers Djordje Gligorijevic, Temple University, Spring 2015

15 Array indexing, obtaining information
Size(A): return [m n] Length(A): length of a vector Length(A) = max(size(A)) B = A(2:4,3:5) B is the subset of A from row 2 to row 4, column 3 to column 5 C = A(2) C is a scalar with value of second index in matrix A Matlab matrix indicies go iteratively top-down, column by column D = A(:, [1,15,20]) Select all rows but a few columns A(:, 2)=[] Delete second column Djordje Gligorijevic, Temple University, Spring 2015

16 Characters and Strings
A sequence of characters enclosed in single quotes  assign a string to a variable A = ‘Alice’ use two single quotes within the definition if  the text includes  a single quote Concatenaton   With square brackets  as concatenate numeric arrays A = [‘Alice’, ’followed’, ’the’, ’rabbit.’] Convert numeric values to strings num2str int2str Djordje Gligorijevic, Temple University, Spring 2015

17 Djordje Gligorijevic, Temple University, Spring 2015
Save/Load Data Save fname Save all workspace data into fname.mat Save fname x y z Save(fname): when fname is a variable Save large files save('fname.mat','fname','-v7.3'); Load fname Load fname x y No error in data You can run simulation intermittently Save/load data between runs Djordje Gligorijevic, Temple University, Spring 2015

18 Programming in MATLAB - Scripts
A file with a .m extension containing Multiple sequential lines of MATLAB commands Function calls To run a script Save a file in the current folder and type its name at the command line Run scripts from the Editor by pressing the Run button Comments To describe the code Add comments whenever you write code For comments add % symbol first Djordje Gligorijevic, Temple University, Spring 2015

19 Programming in MATLAB - Functions
Equivalent to subroutines or methods in other programming languages To call a function, enclose its input arguments in parentheses If there are multiple input arguments, separate them with commas Return output from a function by assigning it to a variable When there are multiple output arguments, enclose them in square brackets To call a function that does not require any inputs and does not return any outputs, type only the function name Djordje Gligorijevic, Temple University, Spring 2015

20 Programming in MATLAB – Control Flow
MATLAB allows control flow operations: Conditional statements, loops, branching Djordje Gligorijevic, Temple University, Spring 2015

21 Plotting in MATLAB – Basic 2-D Figure Plot
Plot(X, Y): Plots vector Y versus vector X Hold: next plot action on the same figure Title(‘title text here’) Xlabel(‘…’), ylabel(‘…’) Axis([XMIN XMAX YMIN YMAX]) Or use xlim or ylim Legend(‘…’) Grid Example demo Djordje Gligorijevic, Temple University, Spring 2015

22 Plotting in MATLAB – Basic 3-D Figure Plot
x=[0:10]; y=[0:10]; z=x’*y; mesh(x,y,z); figure; surf(x,y,z); Djordje Gligorijevic, Temple University, Spring 2015

23 Djordje Gligorijevic, Temple University, Spring 2015
