  • PICUP Spring Webinar Series: Computation in Undergrad Physics with an Emphasis on Using MATLAB

    When: Thursday, January 28 at 6:00pm PT | 7:00pm MT | 8:00pm CT | 9:00pm ET
    Where: Join Zoom Meeting
    Meeting ID: 895 9297 8602
    Passcode: PICUP
    Guest Presenters: Michele McColgan, Siena College and Duncan Carlsmith, UW Madison

    The meeting will start with short presentations, and then we'll have time for questions and discussion in a colloquial setting. The presenters use MATLAB in their courses, and this meeting will provide a good opportunity to see the functionality that MATLAB affords. However, the presenters' approach to integrating computation is relevant generally; thus, this meeting should be of great interest, even if you are not a MATLAB user.

    NOTE: The webinar will be recorded and posted on the PICUP site for viewing for those who are unable to attend the meeting on Thursday, January 28.
