Oregon State University has subscribed to a Total Academic Headcount (TAH) Site License for MATLAB. This new licensing includes many, but not all MATLAB toolboxes. OSU faculty, staff and students can install on up to 4 personally-owned devices or computers. For more information visit Information Services -- MATLAB.
The following are online resources for learning Matlab:
Note: [V] means Kurt Vogel's book, [K] means Tim Kelley's book, [B] is Bardsley, [TB] is Trefethan-Bau, and [D] is Demmel.
A computational project is required for this course. Students must work individually on a topic/problem of their choice involving inverse problems (can be from research/thesis work). Students must submit a typed (less than or equal to two pages) research proposal, including questions to be answered midway through the course. Final papers will be submitted as a typed report including tables or graphs as figures with captions, and references to them inside the body of the text, and a bibliography. Students will give brief (10 minute) presentations on results during the last days of classes in lieu of a final exam.
