15 Feb 2012 Fractal Explorer The whole Chaos in a single program. Author: Laurent Cavin

>Rodrigo
I guess you simply type it into the command prompt. This commands will open fractal_explorer and move the window. You can also save it under a new name (such as callfract.m) and then use the command "callfract" instead of "fractal_exporer" to start it.

Sorry, I do not use Matlab in my current position, so I am not able to provide any support for those functions.
Best regards,

05 Jan 2009 Fractal Explorer The whole Chaos in a single program. Author: Laurent Cavin

Dear all,
thanks for the incredible number of downloads, and sorry that it does not work for some of you. As mentioned, I do not have Matlab in my current position, so I won't be able to help - if anybody wants to post a fix for newer releases, be my guest.
I moved again the website with an introduction on Chaos and the images generated by this program to:

Best regards,
Laurent Cavin

31 Jan 2014 plotyy2 Simplify zooming of plotyy dual plots. Author: Laurent Cavin Bernard

Re: linkaxes

linkaxes forces the axes limits to be the same for the left and right axes, which defeats the point of using plotyy instead of plot. linkaxes seems better suited for subplots.

Essentially, what we need is a linkaxes (I guess more specifically a linkprop?) function which does not set the XLim and YLim properties to be absolutely equal to eachother, but rather to be proportionally equal with respect to the original limits.

Just for clarity, I use the plotyy function within a loop. Each iteration places one line on the left axis and another on the y-axis. I have noticed while using R2012b that the zoom function will zoom in on all line objects on the left axis and the latest-plotted line object on the right axis, just as this plotyy2 submission intends (for both the x and y axes). The remaining line objects that were plotted on the right axes remain at their original zoom. Furthermore, right-clicking and selecting 'Reset to Original View' will then take all of the objects on the left axis and reset them as expected, but the one object from the left axis that did originally zoom in as intended remains at that "zoomed in" view.

19 Dec 2012 trirnd TRIRND generates discrete random numbers from a triangular distribution. Author: Laurent Cavin Dani

This works, but provides incorrect stats for large numbers.. Not exactly sure the breaking point, but even for numbers in the thousands.

27 Aug 2012 program_statistics PROGRAM_STATISTICS compiles some statistics about a program. A report is printed; Author: Laurent Cavin Kearney, Kelly

Also trying to document a thesis project with dozens of files, and this was exactly what I was looking for. Works quickly, and thus far seems to be accurate.
