What is SymmLab?
SymmLab is a collection of Matlab functions that have been used by the authors and collaborators to represent data taking values in special manifolds called Symmetric Spaces. It includes about 100 Matlab files, datasets, and demonstration scripts.
What is New?
The current version (SymmLab090) is our initial release, and contains code for these manifolds
The current version (SymmLab090) contains demonstration scripts which illustrate the following concepts
It includes scripts to reproduce figures in recent papers by researchers from the Stanford Statistics Department and their collaborators:
Philosophy -- why do it?
SymmLab follows the concept of reproducible research.
The idea is: An article about computational science in a scientific publication is not the scholarship itself, it is merely advertising of the scholarship. The actual scholarship is the complete software development environment and the complete set of instructions which generated the figures.
We make SymmLab available to make the full content of our scholarship available, enabling others to understand and reproduce our work.
How to Download?
We offer a uniform download format for the following platforms:
How to Install?
We provide detailed instructions for installation.
We recommend a system which has at least 70MB space reserved for the SymmLab files and a minimum of 256MB memory and which runs Matlab release 6.x or 7.x.
How to Register?
If you have been using SymmLab and have not registered, please do so.
By registering, you will get information about new releases and other information that we believe will serve your interests.

Precompiled MEX files -- how to run fast?
On most platforms, our installation procedure will automatically compile MEX files to accelerate certain key components of the SymmLab library. In case you do not have a Matlab MEX file compiler, we provide a library of precompiled executable MEX files for various platforms. The platforms we support include
If you find that your platform is not included here and you would like to help us to compile the MEX source files, please contact us by email.
