A Guide to MATLAB

The following information acts as a roadmap or a guide to MATLAB, and it's a good way to start learning its environment. These descriptions take you to further information. Choose the topic of your interest.

If you're interested in basic tutorials, check this page.

If you're interested in basic examples, learn here.

If you need intermediate examples, check here.

MATLAB is a program for high-performance numerical operations and visualization. It provides an interactive environment with a lot of built-in commands and functions for numerical analysis and graphics, and

also provides easy extensibility with its own high-level programming language. Start your MATLAB journey here...
In this section we talk about some very basic features and commands. To begin, we look at the general structure of the MATLAB environment. We encourage the use of the online help. Typing 'help function' in MATLAB, with the appropriate function or command name, provides detailed help for any of the functions or commands available. Find MATLAB basic help here...

You can find some MATLAB General Commands here (for Online help, Directory Information, Workspace Information, General Information and MATLAB termination).

In this other section you can see Math oriented functions: arithmetics, trigonometry, complex numbers, m-file functions... something very quick!

In Matlab, you can form arrays of numbers (vectors or matrices) in a straight and intuitive way. See vector details here...

Would you like to form a Magic Square with Matlab? Would you like to know why it is magic? Would you like to see an introduction to matrices? Then read this article on Magic Squares...

Arrays of numbers can also compose matrices. To create a matrix, spaces or commas separate the elements in columns, semicolons separate rowsSee matrix details here...
