Pi is a constant, an irrational number and its notation represent the sixteenth letter of the Greek alphabet, though its value is equal to the ratio of a circle’s circumference to its diameter.
However, a Muslim scientist Abu-Abdullah...
Automatic differentiation is a technique for computing the derivatives of a function using the chain rule. Matlab objects make it easy to implement automatic differentiation. Note that this package is implemented in a rather old version of Matlab....
A small snipet of code to find the determinant of a mtrix of any order.Input must be a list like [[1,2,3],[4,5,6],[7,8,9]] (for a matrix of order 3). Works fine.
It is a Matlab function that determines the zero of a regular real function.
zero=newton_raphson(function,error)
The function has two input variable: 'function' is a string that represents the function of which find the...
Serves as a first attempt to get publicly available MATLAB code for computing the hypervolume and hypervolume contributions. The implementation is usable in 2D and 3D. For 4D and beyond, it is not so efficient, but it does produce correct results....
Generally finding the country of a client with IP address is a difficult task. Most of the times the domain name helps in searching for the address but many IP address are not mapped to any useful domain. But IP::Country::Fast has made it easier...
The dashx debugger is a program for tracing the execution of a target application. As code in the target is executed, the source code information is printed by dashx. The output includes the source file-name, line-number, and source line text.
This is a decorator for doing the profiling of a function.
This model uses Simulink and the Aerospace Blockset for modeling the airframe of a NASA HL-20 lifting body, which is a low-cost complement to the Space Shuttle orbiter. The Aerospace Blockset was used to rapidly assemble portions of the HL-20...
A function which gives the area of a 3D planar polygon which does not lie in the x-y plane.
AREA3D(X,Y,Z) calculates the area of a polygon in space formed by vertices with coordinate vectors X,Y and Z. If the coordinates of vertex v_i...
This routine will shade the area of a 2-D plot between two user defined vectors. Simply pass the two vectors, and their corresponding horizontal coordinates, select your fill color and transparency level and viola! You have a figure that is...
