hmmvp 1.3, a package to construct an H-matrix and compute matrix-vector products of the form B*x, B(rs,:)*x, and B(rs,cs)*x(cs). The package hmmvpex 0.1 contains practical usage examples.

dc3dm 0.3, a package to construct and apply an H-matrix approximation to the displacement-discontinuity method (DDM) linear operator relating quasistatic dislocation and traction components on a nonuniformly discretized rectangular fault in a homogeneous elastic half space. See this AGU 2013 poster for details. Movie of slow slip in a region with many small asperities.

kfgs 0.4, a Matlab package to compute the gradient of the log likelihood function from a Kalman filter.

hmmvp 0.16, the old version. It has certain Matlab-focused features that may be useful, but it's much slower than hmmvp 1.0+.

Fig. 5 erroneously shows (solid line) steady-state, rather than maximum, lifetime risk; these differ only for compliance rate near 1: see this version for details. Longer technical report.]
