Finding MATLAB Source Code And Tools

Having read this log so far, you're probably pretty impressed, but thinking, "This is great stuff- really great stuff, but where else can I find MATLAB source code and tools for data mining?" There are four basic sources:

1. General Web Search Engines

Try searching for a combination of things:

Language:
MATLAB
"MATLAB source"
MATLAB AND "source code"

Algorithms:
backpropagation
"linear discriminant"
"neural network"

Some college professors give away high-quality material (papers and code) for free! This group of key phrases will help turn them up:

"course notes"
"course readings"
"lecture notes"
"syllabus"

Don't just use Google. I have found these search engines to be useful:


A9
AlltheWeb
Alta Vista
Devilfinder
Dogpile
Ixquick
Lycos


2. MATLAB Central

MATLAB Central


3. Source Code Repositories

Google Code
LiteratePrograms


4. Toolboxes

Commercial toolboxes are definitely the most expensive route to take, but there are free versions as well. This list is certainly not exhaustive.

The MathWorks

MATLAB Curve Fitting Toolbox
MATLAB Genetic Algorithm and Direct Search Toolbox
MATLAB Neural Network Toolbox
MATLAB Statistics Toolbox

Third-Party

glmlab (Generalized Linear Models in MATLAB)
The Lazy Learning Toolbox
MATLABArsenal
Netlab
PRTools
Statistical Pattern Recognition Toolbox
Stixbox
Support Vector Machine Toolbox

Hi Will:

This is great stuff! You've got a lot of fans at the MathWorks reading your blog. If we can help by providing useful search or organization features on the MATLAB Central File Exchange, send me a note at gulley@mathworks.com>.

-Ned.

Thanks! I'm glad to learn that someone is reading this log (I was beginning to wonder if anyone was!).

Don't be shy about commenting! Say 'hi!' to Liz Callanan for me.

People doing clustering can more particularly have a look at SOM Toolbox and Fuzzy Clustering Toolbox.

Nice info! I have compiled a list of machine learning software that can be used for data mining at delicious. It si not exclusively dedicated to matlab, but there's a matlab tag.

Thanks for the links! They are very useful. I particularly like the Statistical Pattern Recognition Toolbox from Franc et al. It is comprehensive and the guide is clear.

Hellow....!!!
I'm from Iindonesia... Sorry for my bad english..!!! LOL
I'm just a ordinary student who have some homework from mu teacher... Abaut matlab of course...

Can I ask you something sir..?

Where I can find a M-file or something about my homework..?
I need a matlab code for "Shannon Fanoo coding"....

I'd try this link ---> http://www.mathworks.com/matlabcentral/newsreader/view_thread/257935

but I can not RUN that code... Error...

Thankyou
