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
Modeling the United States Economy
Illustrates the use of a vector error-correction (VEC) model as a linear alternative to the Smets-Wouters Dynamic Stochastic General Equilibrium (DSGE) macroeconomic model, and applies many of the techniques of Smets-Wouters to the description of the United States economy.
Measuring Signal Similarities
Measure signal similarities. It will help you answer questions such as: How do I compare signals with different lengths or different sampling rates? How do I find if there is a signal or just noise in a measurement? Are two signals related? How to measure a delay between two signals (and how do I align them)? How do I compare the frequency content of two signals?
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
Introduction to MIMO Systems
Multiple-Input-Multiple-Output (MIMO) systems, which use multiple antennas at the transmitter and receiver ends of a wireless communication system. MIMO systems are increasingly
Fit Exponential Models Using the fit Function
Fit an exponential model to data using the fit function.
Compare Fits Programmatically
Fit and compare polynomials up to sixth degree using Curve Fitting Toolbox, fitting some census data. It also shows how to fit a single-term exponential equation and compare this to the
Introduction to Streaming Signal Processing in MATLAB
Use System objects to do streaming signal processing in MATLAB. The signals are read in and processed frame by frame (or block by block) in each processing loop. You can control the size of each
Deflection Analysis of Bracket for Multiple Materials
Perform a parameter sweep of material properties to determine the material with minimum deflection caused by a given load. Lastly, for such material we compute a load deflection curve. This
Deflection Analysis of Bracket
Analyze an idealized 3-D mechanical part under an applied load using Finite Element Analysis (FEA). The objective of the analysis is to determine the maximal deflection caused by the load.
Model the Heat Tolerance of Components Exposed to Electronics
This finite element thermal analysis (FEA) examines the heat tolerance for a robotics component of a commercial youBot.
Single Hydraulic Cylinder Simulation
Use Simulink® to model a hydraulic cylinder. You can apply these concepts to applications where you need to model hydraulic behavior. See two related examples that use the same basic
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
Manipulating Multidimensional Arrays
Work with arrays having more than two dimensions. Multidimensional arrays can be numeric, character, cell, or structure arrays.
Simulation of a Bouncing Ball
Use two different approaches to modeling a bouncing ball using Simulink®.
