Contains the slides and demos for the seminar entitled "Data Analysis with MATLAB for Excel Users", which was delivered on March 7th at the Newton Marriott in Newton, MA.
While a clever person could certainly make sense out of this material without having attended the seminar, it is designed to augment the live performance (not replace it). This means there are no detailed descriptions on how to run the various demos. Some of them require specific toolboxes to function.
Demo 1: Energy Prediction for a Power Plant -- Illustrates MATLAB's capabilities as a tool for data analysis. Shows features from MATLAB, Curve Fitting Toolbox, Statistics Toolbox, and Compiler.
Demo 2: Motor Noise Demo -- Illustrates two of MATLAB's integration methods with Excel including, Excel Link and Builder for Excel. This is actually a subset of the MATLAB for Excel Users webinar. Watch it here if interested (free, recorded):
Demo 3: Introduction to MATLAB COM Interface -- shows the basics for using MATLAB as an activex client to connect to Excel. MATLAB can also be a server, though that is not shown here. The nice part about this section is nothing is required besides basic MATLAB.
