01/06: Getting Python and Jupyter Lab running on a lab PC will require creating a virtual environment under your user account. The information in the linked document also applies to setting up your own laptop.

Office hours for this course Spring 2022 can be found on the PDF syllabus linked above. The Field Fox spectrum and network analyzer is a great measurement tool. Respect it and thrive on what it brings to your understanding of signals and systems.

Learning Python

Python Basics a tutorial written in Jupyter Notebook. ZIP.

Link to Anaconda. This is the scientific Python I recommend.

Two IDE's I recommend are (1) VS Code with the Python extension and (2) Pycharm Community Edition.

NumPy2MATLAB and IPython reference card.

EAS RATS and LATS Servers

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.
