Numerical Analyst John D’Errico Takes a Stroll Through Cody 7

Posted by Ned Gulley,

I think of the wise and generous John D’Errico as a computational philanthropist. After a long career as a numerical analyst at Kodak, he retired to what could have been complacent indifference to the outside world. But that’s not the kind of man that John D’Errico is. He wanted to... read more >>

Flag Math on Bastille Day 7

Posted by Ned Gulley,

Let me start with a graphical riddle. In what sense is the following equivalence true? To learn the answer, read on! I recently came across Nick Higham’s fun post on one-liners in MATLAB. That piece and the approach of Bastille Day on July 14th made me think of another one-line program. image([3 2... read more >>

File Exchange Alert: Your Help Is Needed! 2

Posted by Ned Gulley,

Collaboration on software can be a lot of fun, but it can also be hard to motivate. For instance, you may be working on a project and you’d love some help, but you can’t get anyone else excited about your Interactive Polhode-Herpolhode Animator. Alternatively, you may be willing to help with... read more >>

Searching for MATLAB Examples with Google 5

I want to show you a trick for finding entertaining MATLAB code. Of course I will always recommend that you start looking on the File Exchange or on Sean and Jiro’s awesome Pick of the Week or maybe the MATLAB Examples page. But after that there’s always Google and the great... read more >>

The Great Ans Hack 8

Posted by Ned Gulley,

Cody is a game that rewards you for calculating the same answer with less code. The very first Cody problem you encounter is called Times 2. It’s a starter problem, so it’s meant to be super simple: write a function that multiplies the input by two. As of this writing, something like 17,000... read more >>

Soccer Passing Networks

Posted by Ned Gulley,

I saw another fun MATLAB-related tweet go by, this time about soccer rather than doughnuts. The Euro 2016 tournament is going on right now, and José Pedro Silva tweeted a cool MATLAB-generated visualization about passing between the players. This is showing the passing in the Portugal-Iceland match. https://twitter.com/ZPedro10/status/743115988581896192 The game resulted in... read more >>

National Jelly-Filled Doughnut Day

Posted by Ned Gulley,

National Doughnut Day was June 3rd. On that day, Sean Breckling was nice enough to tweet this to the universe of MATLAB users: https://twitter.com/BikeMath/status/738818666448314369 I sampled his code (below) and found it delicious, although it had a slight metallic taste (note the copper colormap). X = imread('sprinkles.jpg'); ... read more >>

A New Name, A New Focus

Posted by Ned Gulley,

This is the blog that used to be called “MATLAB Spoken Here.” When we gave it that name, we were thinking it would be a good place for general content and announcements… sometimes about community, sometimes about product. But ultimately that aim was a little too generic and unfocused. Today we... read more >>
