About the Author

The author completed a Ph.D. in plasma physics at the Flinders University of South Australia in the days before MATLAB. Consequently, he knows how much time can be saved when you don’t have to write your own matrix inversion or polynomial evaluation routines in FORTRAN. His first exposure to MATLAB was at the Centre for Plasma Physics Research at the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology (Ecole Polytechnique Fédérale) in Lausanne, Switzerland, where he continued his research in plasma physics. On his return to Australia to take up a position with the Maritime Operations Division of the Defence Science and Technology Organisation, he was given responsibility for research in the flow noise problem of towed sonar arrays. His current research interests include sonar signal processing and information displays. He has been largely responsible for the growth in the use of MATLAB in his division, and has conducted training courses in MATLAB.
