# ODE Solver Selection in MATLAB

Posted by Loren Shure,

Today, I'd like to welcome Josh Meyer as this week's guest blogger. Josh works on the Documentation team here at MathWorks, where he writes and maintains some of the MATLAB Mathematics documentation. In this post, Josh provides a bit of advice on how to choose which ODE solver to use. Over to you, Josh...... read more >>

# Update on the Chebfun Project4

Posted by Loren Shure,

A while ago, I wrote about the Chebfun Project. At the time, version 3 had recently come out. I recently visited Nick Trefethen and Nick Hale, part of the Chebfun team, and they showed me the latest and greatest version 4. ... read more >>

# ODEs, from Symbolic to Numeric Code2

Posted by Loren Shure,

In a recent post on solving ODEs, the reader Jason wondered if there was a way to do away with the manual algebraic steps using Symbolic Math Toolbox. There currently isn't a canned way to do it so the result is a MATLAB program, but you can do so in... read more >>

# Rooting Around in MATLAB – Part 34

Posted by Loren Shure,

I recently wrote a pair of posts (1 and 2) about finding roots of equations, and how you might use MATLAB to explore this topic with emphasis on the method of fixed point iteration. ... read more >>

# Rooting Around in MATLAB – Part 22

Posted by Loren Shure,

In a recent post, I started a series of posts about finding roots of equations, and how you might use MATLAB to teach some of this topic. In particular, I will introduce the idea of fixed point iteration. ... read more >>

# Rooting Around in MATLAB – Part 13

Posted by Loren Shure,

I've been interested in teaching for a long time, including ways to use MATLAB. One concept that students might need to understand early in their college careers is that of finding roots or zeros of functions. To understand at least some... read more >>
