Learning MATLAB

Course notes on learning MATLAB are available in PDF format at the above link from when I taught ECE 1010.

Obtaining Mathematica

Mathematica is available across the campus due to the CU system wide site license. This system-site license also means that students may install their own copy on home computers as well. Some links of interest regarding the CU site license for Mathematica are: download and installation and support information.

Files in this directory listing of interest are the course notes which are in files of the form ece2610_chap#.pdf. Corrections to the course notes will be made on an ongoing basis. Watch the time/date codes on the files to see if a file is newer than the one you last downloaded

Lecture Videos

Spring 2011 Lectures as Streaming QuickTime Movies

You will need to have the free QuickTime player installed on your PC or Mac (get it). If clicking the link below does not start your QuickTime player you can manually start QuickTime, then the 'Choose File -> Open URL' menu item and enter the URL pointed to by the below links. The .mov file is in a high resolution 1024 x 768 format at 8 frames per second. The typical file size per lecture is about 160 MB. For a direct download see the link below the list.

The following are from the Spring 2011 offering of the course and at later lactures from the Spring 2010 offering. New lectures replace older lectures as they occur.

To directly download the lectures for playback at a later time, go to the lectures folder, right click, and download
