Some of the problems will require to use a computer tool, such as
Matlab, to solve it.
For UT Austin students, the most convenient option for accessing Matlab is to
Here are other options:
- Install the full version of Matlab on your laptop through the
university site license

- Request a MathWorks account in the downloading step through UT ServiceNow,
- Follow the instructions on account creation directly from the email, and
- Choose at a minimum the DSP System Toolbox, Image Processing Toolbox,
and Signal Processing Toolbox during installation.
The Mathscript functionality in LabVIEW implements core functions
in Matlab and a few signal processing functions.
These functions should be all that you'll need for the course.
- Buy the Matlab student edition for your local computer ($99)
- Run Matlab on a remote computer using an
- Run the Mathscript environment in the LabVIEW Real-Time Module
- Run GNU Octave
- Convert Matlab code to run in Python using numpy and scipy extensions
