Loren on the Art of MATLAB

Natural Neighbor – A Superb Interpolation Method

Posted by Loren Shure,

I'm happy to welcome Damian Sheehy as this week's guest blogger. Damian works on the development of geometry-related features at MathWorks. He will provide answers to two frequently asked questions; one on scattered data interpolation that he will cover in this blog and the other on Delaunay triangulation that he will cover in the next. Over to you, Damian...... read more >>

MATLAB Used to Map EarthQuakes from Satellite Data

Posted by Loren Shure,

A friend just pointed out to me a really cool article: Turns Out Satellites Work Great for Mapping Earthquakes. It's about mapping earthquakes using satellite data. This sounded intriguing because I know earth scientists use MATLAB after the fact to analyze seismic data, but I was less certain what exactly they might do with satellite data and earthquakes. The article, centered on work by Bill Barnett from U. of Iowa, is very interesting. Rather than wait for data to be processed well after events occur, Bill demonstrates what can be done with the data in a much shorter time period, allowing first responders to expedite their decision making regarding where, when, and how to respond to damaging events.... read more >>

Bayesian Brain Teaser 4

Posted by Loren Shure,

Winter in Boston can get quite cold. When we get a lot of snow, we need to take a break after shoveling, and solving puzzles is nice way to spend time indoors. Today's guest blogger, Toshi Takeuchi, gives you an interesting brain teaser, written during one of the many 2015 snowstorms in Boston.... read more >>
