Best Practices for Scientific Computing

In lieu of the holiday season, Matlab Geeks is going to take a small break from writing Matlab code. Instead, we’d like to share this great article on the best practices for scientific computing. Increasingly, scientists are writing computer programs to perform their research. However, most scientists only have rudimentary training in computer programming and do not know how to create efficient, reliable, and maintainable code. This brief article lists ten recommendations that can help increase the productivity of scientists and engineers. We have summarized the main points of the paper in this article. We try to use these recommendations ourselves and believe the dissemination of this knowledge will help the scientific computing community become more productive.

Introducing our Forums

We just launched our new Forums page on Matlab Geeks.  Because of the large quantity of questions that we receive through email and on our posts, we thought that it would be more productive for you (and easier for us) if these questions saw more public exposure.  If you have a question about Matlab, please post it on our forums.  Additionally, if you know the answer to a question that someone has posted, please answer it.  We hope to build a community of Matlab users on this site which will be mutually beneficial for all of those involved.  To participate in the forums, just click this link or the “Forums” link under the header.

Energy Release in Recent Earthquakes

After researching earthquakes a few weeks ago, I found a great deal of interesting information regarding energy release, frequency, and a multitude of other topics.  Today I will write about the release of energy from earthquakes since the beginning of the 20th century and compare the earthquakes of the last decade to those of the past century.

Are We Having More Earthquakes Lately?

Since the beginning of 2010, there have been many devastating earthquakes near large population centers.  These earthquakes include a 7.0 in Haiti on Jan 12, 2010, an 8.8 in Chile and Feb 27, 2010, a 6.1 in Turkey on Mar 8, 2010, a 6.9 in Chile on Mar 11, 2010, a 6.9 in China on Apr 14, 2010, a 6.3 in New Zealand on Feb 21, 2011, a 9.0 in Japan on Mar 11, 2011 and a 7.1 in Japan on Apr 7, 2011.  These earthquakes have had tragic consequences, especially in Haiti and Japan, where over 220,000 and 10,000 people have died, respectively.  This surge of earthquakes in the news has caused many people to speculate about whether the number of earthquakes is increasing and the reasons why.  We found data on earthquakes from 1900 to 2010 and will show whether there has been a recent rise in earthquakes or not.
