Computational Projects:

All projects are based on Matlab, a mathematical software package with an extensive library of mathematical and scientific function calls entirely built-in.  All of the labs are available online on Dr. Sussman's webpage.


One may obtain a free copy of the Matlab software package onto their personal computers through the University. To download a version, go to this link and select the ``Software Download Service at My Pitt'' link.  After entering your username and password, click on the ``Software Download Service Login'' link  in the upper-right hand side of the webpage.  Then find the appropriate version (Windows, Mac, or Linux) to download.  Alternatively, the University of Pittsburgh has a full-featured version of  Matlab available for students to install on their personal computers for $5 (for a one year license).  One may pick up a copy in person at Software Licensing Services (SLS), 204 Bellefield Hall.   Finally, one may access Matlab in any of the University computer labs.
