The following link leads to my research page at
- A sixty page introduction to using Octave for solving linear and
polynomial equations, statistics, data analysis, an introduction to programming, graphing, "tossing coins on
computer" (simulation), etc. A special feature (section 01) is "A sample Octave session" which allows the
student to rapidly learn the essential features (diaries, variables ...) of Octave. Suggested
excercises are included in each section and Octave sessions and programs are commented.
This booklet may be freely distributed for educational purposes.
- The Guide provides a more advanced guide to Octave (Octave accepts Matlab code).
The Guide may be freely distributed for educational purposes.
Didactic Mathematical Material
Do It Yourself Tex
Do It Yourself Tex A set of forms and macro files for pure XeTex.
These permit the importing of images, marginal and footnotes, colour,
typesetting for right to left languages etc.
- The entire package (9.0 MB) can be downloaded. Both the Tex and PDF files are included.
With Graphviz one describes nodes and the relationships---if there are any---between them (via "edges") and the software does the rest.
