Tips and Tricks- Getting Started Using Optimization with MATLAB

Stuart Kozola, MathWorks

Engineers and scientists across all major industries use optimization to find better solutions to their problems. 

In this webinar we highlight the MathWorks optimization product offering, including MATLAB, Optimization Toolbox, and Global Optimization Toolbox. It summarizes the capabilities of each product and discusses the benefits of running your optimizations from the MATLAB environment. Product demonstrations show how to find solutions to real-world optimization problems, while also introducing new and experienced users to best practices for using MATLAB optimization products through a “tips and tricks” format.
This is an introductory webinar, and requires no previous knowledge of MATLAB.  Please allow approximately 60 minutes to attend the presentation and Q&A session.
