Please check this :”We named the MATLAB verion fzero. Here is the textbook version, fzerotx, from Numerical Computinng with MATLAB. This is not all of the MATLAB fzero. In my next blog post I will deal with the need to know an interval on which the function changes sign.”, “verion”, “Computinng”.

There is no central repository of the presentations and I didn’t hear any of plans for one. It will be up to the individual authors to put their material up on their web sites, if they so choose.

I don’t have any personal experience with Julia and I’ve only heard a couple of talks about it. Alan talked about the philosophy behind Julia, emphasizing the type analysis intended to produce fast code. That’s certainly different from MATLAB’s original objectives. When it comes to matrix computation, MATLAB and Julia both call LAPACK, so they’ll be the same speed. But that’s a small portion of the overall picture of performance.

I’m curious, what’s your opinion on Julia (Since it was one of the talks in the conference)?

By the way,

Any place the Presentations are shared?

Thank You.

]]>This was observed on the Explorer I, which was designed to rotate about its minor axis but ended up tumbling due to the high rate of energy dissipation from its whip antennas. Fortunately, the science payload was able to keep operating even in this ungraceful state, and we went on to learn quite a bit more about the dynamics of torque-free rotation.
