String Things 4

Working with text in MATLAB has evolved over time. Way back, text data was stored in double arrays with an internal flag to denote that it was meant to be text. We then transformed this representation so character arrays were their very own type. And I mentioned earlier that we introduced a string datatype to make working with text data more efficient and natural. Let me show you a little more.... read more >>

Importance of Implicit Expansion For Performance 6

Sometimes people state that they like using MATLAB because it's easy to express their mathematical thoughts. Sometimes there's a follow-on that they then switch to another language for performance. While early in the history of MATLAB, that was sometimes beneficial, it is not so obvious these days. Let's take the example of implicit expansion (also here).... read more >>

dimsum in MATLAB 12

As Steve noted in a recent post, several of the functions that operate along specific dimensions have been updated to add some new functionality, for example the function sum. (I also think he missed a great opportunity for a cool blog post title, which is only partly why I am writing about it now :^) ). Please read his post!... read more >>
