  • Σημειώσεις Εργαστηρίου Γραμμικών Μαθηματικών Εύδοξος, 2011
    Abstract: Μία κριτική εισαγωγή στο MATLAB & Octave μελετώντας την αριθμητική κινητής υποδιαστολής στα πλαίσια ενός εργαστηρίου Γραμμικής Άλγεβρας και συγκρίνοντας με πακέτα υπολογιστικής άλγεβρας όπως το wxMaxima. Αριθμητικά bugs που δεν είναι αρκετά γνωστά, ανάλυση πινάκων (matrix decomposition) και ασκήσεις.
