  12. MATLAB DOs and DON'Ts

    14 May 2006 | | Contributor(s):: Dmitri Nikonov

    Matlab is widely used for simulations but is believed to be unsuitable for complex projects and to produce slow-running software tools. The presentation argues that blind copying of methods typical of C and Fortran is responsible for such inefficiencies; the presentation teaches avoidance of...
