What you'll need

For this assignment, you'll need access to either Matlab or Octave, with graphics capabilities. For most of you, that will mean using a Windows NT system in one of the CIS public labs. (Just login and choose Matlab from the Start menu.)

If you have access to an X terminal, or a PC equipped with X server software, you can access Matlab remotely on unixs.cis.pitt.edu. See the Math 0250 web page http://calculus.math.pitt.edu/0250 for instructions on getting X server software for your PC or Mac and running Matlab remotely.

If you have access to a Linux system, you can install Gnu Octave and use it instead of Matlab. Check the Math 0250 web page http://calculus.math.pitt.edu/0250 for a link to the Octave web pages.
