To answer the question of using data not normally on the MATLAB path, I offer the following modification.

if ~exist('contest_data.mat','file')
warning ('This was an entry to the MATLAB programming contest ( Please load the contest data and unzip it to place contest_data.mat on your MATLAB path.')

no comprehensible H1 line, no help section, no example(s), loads a file, which the typical ML user does not have and, therefore, causes an error right away...

??? Error using ==> load
Unable to read file contest_data: No such file or directory.

however, first and foremost, requires an expensive toolbox to run, which is simply unheard of of any former coding contest...

no appreciable benefit to any ML user...

I find this interesting. I like that you make an animation work and there is a certain excitement seeing things look to level off early, then thinking there is no hope for improvement, but watching the spiral relentlessly optimize the solution.
