This course introduces the MATLAB programming language. Owned by MathWorks, MATLAB allows matrix calculation, the use of graphical interfaces for functions and data, the implementation of algorithms and the creation of interfaces. The course takes place in four Sections. The first section introduces the MATLAB environment and basic matrix language, along with basic operations of scalar, vector and matrix type. The second uses built-in functions, flow expressions (if, for, while) and defines how to create m.files (scripts and functions). In the following section the language for graphic tools is presented. Finally, the last section deals with econometric themes: simulation of stochastic processes and first analysis of economic time-series.

Not Set

  • to know the Matlab environment; 
  • to know the matrices and how to load them from external files; 
  • to be able to use scalar, vector and matrix operations; 
  • to know how to use expressions of flow: for, while, if; 
  • to create m.files: scripts and functions; 
  • to create planar and 3D plots; 
  • being able to simulate stochastic processes: AR, MA, ARMA; 
  • to know the fundamental aspects of the analysis of economic time-series.

Minimum knowledge of the operating system on which to install MATLAB; knowledge of the matrix calculation; knowledge of the English language in which to program.
The teacher discusses the commands and topics of interest in recorded online lessons. During the lessons the student has at his disposal the slides used and the tutorials attached. At the end of each lesson you can consolidate your knowledge with a tutorial in which you are asked to program lines of MATLAB code.
You can obtain the Certificate of Attendance and the Badge by completing the assessment tests present in the course (you must answer correctly to 7/10 questions for each section).
