Use of modern computer tools for numerical experiments in Matrix theory
A new possible approach to numerical experimentation with the straightforward use of a commercially available computing environment has been compared with the traditional way of program writing. A full example has then been presented to show the proposed approach.
As a natural way of working in Computer-Aided Systems Theory, most of the above cited algorithms, once tested in Matlab form, have been successively compiled in the traditional way and constitute the kernel of a integrated graphical environment for control systems analysis and design. This environment, called Codex, provides the control systems designer most of the basic tools for handling linear systems both in the frequency and time domains, as well as in continuous and discrete forms .
