Modeling the United States Economy
Economists and policymakers are concerned with understanding the dynamics of economies, especially during periods of significant macroeconomic shocks. Although numerous approaches are possible, we will develop a small macroeconomic model in the style of Smets and Wouters.
Perform classification using discriminant analysis, naive Bayes classifiers, and decision trees. Suppose you have a data set containing observations with measurements on different variables (called predictors) and their known class labels. If you obtain predictor values for new observations, could you determine to which classes those
ANOVA with Random Effects
Use anovan to fit models where a factor's levels represent a random selection from a larger (infinite) set of possible levels.
Designing a Guidance System in MATLAB and Simulink
Use the model of the missile airframe presented in a number of published papers (References ,  and ) on the use of advanced control methods applied to missile autopilot design. The
Modeling a Fault-Tolerant Fuel Control System
Combine Stateflow® with Simulink® to efficiently model hybrid systems. This type of modeling is particularly useful for systems that have numerous possible operational modes based on
Face Detection and Tracking Using the KLT Algorithm
Automatically detect and track a face using feature points. The approach in this example keeps track of the face even when the person tilts his or her head, or moves toward or away from the
Face Detection and Tracking Using Live Video Acquisition
Automatically detect and track a face in a live video stream, using the KLT algorithm.
Tutorial and examples of PINPOLYHEDRON function
PINPOLYHEDRON: This function is an implementation of a novel algorithm. It tests whether points are inside/outside/on a polyhedron defined by triangular faces and vertices. It can be used

Designing a High Angle of Attack Pitch Mode Control
Use the Control System Toolbox™ and Simulink® Control Design™ to interact with Simulink to design a digital pitch control for the aircraft. In this example, we will design the controller to
Basic Matrix Operations
Basic techniques and functions for working with matrices in the MATLAB® language.
Radar Tracking Using MATLAB Function Block
Use an extended Kalman filter with the MATLAB® Function block in Simulink® to estimate an aircraft's position from radar measurements. The filter implementation is found in the MATLAB
