Generating Optimal Tables Using MATLAB Products

Richard Willey, MathWorks

Engineers and scientists use tables to approximate complex relationships within a set of variables. Regardless of whether you are generating a lookup table for an embedded design or creating charts and plots for a report, you need the ability to create accurate tables quickly and conveniently. Understanding the tradeoff between the size of a table and its accuracy can be particularly important, especially when you need to fit a lookup table in a limited amount of ROM.

In this webinar we demonstrate how a combination of surface fitting, statistics, and optimization can be used to generate optimal tables for real world data sets. New and experienced users will learn best practices for creating tables with specific focus on goodness-of-fit statistics, interpolation methods, and visualization techniques.
