Abstract

In this paper we introduce a tutorial on the use of the Guide facility of MATLAB. Guide is a development platform composed of several interrelated tools within MATLAB that allows the user to build complex graphical user interfaces that can be used as teaching tools or as automated programs. Several examples rela ted to engineering disciplines are presented.

I. Introduction

MATLAB is a high- level mathematical language for technical computing. In many universities and colleges it is the standard instructional tool for courses in mathematics, engineering, technology, and science. In industry it is widely used as a tool for analysis, development and research. MATLAB integrates computation, visualization and programming in an environment that is easy to learn and use.

From the point of view of its usage, MATLAB is mainly an interactive system. At the command line the user types statements expressed in familiar mathematical notation, and the system responds immediately with the solution of the request. For instance, to create a plot of the function t*sin(t) for the time interval 0 to 20 in steps of 0.05, we would type

t = -10:0.05:10; plot(t, sin(t)./t) grid on;

MATLAB will respond by generating the plot shown in Fig. 1.
