ASTR310: Observational Astronomy
General MATLAB Help
- The MATH/CMSC 206 Tutorial is very helpful especially for those who are totally new to MATLAB.
(You probably want to read Part A and B before you start working on your project)
- You can also read this Introduction to MATLAB (pdf file) written by Prof. Bolatto to get a feeling about what you can do with MATLAB.
Basic topics: Vectors, Matrices, and Arrays
In observational astronomy, most of the time your data will be in the form of arrays or matrices (the 2-D maps of sky!). Therefore, it's very important to learn some MATLAB matrix/array commands before you start working on your projects.
Advanced topics: Programming with MATLAB
