VS265: Homework assignments Fall2010
Students are encouraged to work in groups, but turn in assignments individually, listing the group members they worked with.
Amir, the past GSI for the course says "There is a guide to Matlab on the web by Kevin Murphy which is really excellent. I think it would be great for the VS265 students: http://code.google.com/p/yagtom/"
Additionally, Josh Bloom (Astronomy) is teaching a Science Research Computing with Python course this semester (on Mondays 2-5pm in Hearst 310, Fall 2010, CCN 06180) which you might want to take. A Python Boot Camp kicked-off that class, and has a lot of accessible introductory material.
Lab #1, due Thursday, September 9th at beginning of class
for Python: either ...
In : import scipy.io In : d = scipy.io.loadmat("data.mat") In : X,O = d['X'],d['O']
or use data.npz
In : import numpy as np In : d = np.load('data.npz') In : X,O = d['X'],d['O']
