Function is as functiontests

Today we have a post from guest blogger Andy Campbell to highlight a function-based approach for writing tests in MATLAB. We will be demonstrating how you can write simple functions that aid you in designing a physical system. This approach allows you to iterate quickly and improve your designs while protecting you from violating requirements met by earlier solutions.... read more >>
