julia-mit - Tutorials and information on the Julia language for MIT numerical-computation courses.


Several MIT courses involving numerical computation, including 18.06, 18.303, 18.330, 18.335/6.337, 18.337/6.338, and 18.338, are beginning to use Julia, a fairly new language for technical computing. This page is intended to supplement the Julia documentation with some simple tutorials on installing and using Julia targeted at MIT students. See also our Julia cheatsheet listing a few basic commands, as well as the Learn Julia in Y minutes tutorial page. In particular, we will be using Julia in the IJulia browser-based enviroment, which leverages your web browser and IPython to provide a rich environment combining code, graphics, formatted text, and even equations, with sophisticated plots via Matplotlib.

learn-julia-the-hard-way - Learn Julia the hard way!

  •    Makefile

The Julia base package is pretty big, although at the same time, there are lots of other packages around to expand it with. The result is that on the whole, it is impossible to give a thorough overview of all that Julia can do in just a few brief exercises. Therefore, I had to adopt a little 'bias', or 'slant' if you please, in deciding what to focus on and what to ignore. Julia is a technical computing language, although it does have the capabilities of any general purpose language and you'd be hard-pressed to find tasks it's completely unsuitable for (although that does not mean it's the best or easiest choice for any of them). Julia was developed with the occasional reference to R, and with an avowed intent to improve upon R's clunkiness. R is a great language, but relatively slow, to the point that most people use it to rapid prototype, then implement the algorithm for production in Python or Java. Julia seeks to be as approachable as R but without the speed penalty.

  •    Julia

This package provides the ability to directly call and fully interoperate with Python from the Julia language. You can import arbitrary Python modules from Julia, call Python functions (with automatic conversion of types between Julia and Python), define Python classes from Julia methods, and share large data structures between Julia and Python without copying them. Within Julia, just use the package manager to run Pkg.add("PyCall") to install the files. Julia 0.5 or later is required.

DifferentialEquations.jl - Julia suite for high-performance solvers of differential equations

  •    Julia

The well-optimized DifferentialEquations solvers benchmark as the some of the fastest implementations, using classic algorithms and ones from recent research which routinely outperform the "standard" C/Fortran methods, and include algorithms optimized for high-precision and HPC applications. At the same time, it wraps the classic C/Fortran methods, making it easy to switch over to them whenever necessary. It integrates with the Julia package sphere, for example using Juno's progress meter, automatic plotting, built-in interpolations, and wraps other differential equation solvers so that many different methods for solving the equations can be accessed by simply switching a keyword argument. It utilizes Julia's generality to be able to solve problems specified with arbitrary number types (types with units like Unitful, and arbitrary precision numbers like BigFloats and ArbFloats), arbitrary sized arrays (ODEs on matrices), and more. This gives a powerful mixture of speed and productivity features to help you solve and analyze your differential equations faster. For information on using the package, see the stable documentation. Use the latest documentation for the version of the documentation which contains the un-released features.

gramm - Gramm is a complete data visualization toolbox for Matlab

  •    Matlab

Gramm is a powerful plotting toolbox which allows to quickly create complex, publication-quality figures in Matlab, and is inspired by R's ggplot2 library by Hadley Wickham. As a reference to this inspiration, gramm stands for GRAMmar of graphics for Matlab. Gramm is a data visualization toolbox for Matlab that allows to produce publication-quality plots from grouped data easily and flexibly. Matlab can be used for complex data analysis using a high-level interface: it supports mixed-type tabular data via tables, provides statistical functions that accept these tables as arguments, and allows users to adopt a split-apply-combine approach (Wickham 2011) with rowfun(). However, the standard plotting functionality in Matlab is mostly low-level, allowing to create axes in figure windows and draw geometric primitives (lines, points, patches) or simple statistical visualizations (histograms, boxplots) from numerical array data. Producing complex plots from grouped data thus requires iterating over the various groups in order to make successive statistical computations and low-level draw calls, all the while handling axis and color generation in order to visually separate data by groups. The corresponding code is often long, not easily reusable, and makes exploring alternative plot designs tedious.

Julia - Language for Technical Computing

  •    Julia

Julia is a high-level, high-performance dynamic programming language for technical computing, with syntax that is familiar to users of other technical computing environments. It provides a sophisticated compiler, distributed parallel execution, numerical accuracy, and an extensive mathematical function library. This computation is automatically distributed across all available compute nodes, and the result, reduced by summation (+), is returned at the calling node.

JuMP is a domain-specific modeling language for mathematical optimization embedded in Julia. It currently supports a number of open-source and commercial solvers (Artelys Knitro, BARON, Bonmin, Cbc, Clp, Couenne, CPLEX, ECOS, FICO Xpress, GLPK, Gurobi, Ipopt, MOSEK, NLopt, SCS) for a variety of problem classes, including linear programming, (mixed) integer programming, second-order conic programming, semidefinite programming, and nonlinear programming. JuMP makes it easy to specify and solve optimization problems without expert knowledge, yet at the same time allows experts to implement advanced algorithmic techniques such as exploiting efficient hot-starts in linear programming or using callbacks to interact with branch-and-bound solvers. JuMP is also fast - benchmarking has shown that it can create problems at similar speeds to special-purpose commercial tools such as AMPL while maintaining the expressiveness of a generic high-level programming language. JuMP can be easily embedded in complex work flows including simulations and web servers.

Knet.jl - Koç University deep learning framework.

  •    Julia

Knet uses dynamic computational graphs generated at runtime for automatic differentiation of (almost) any Julia code. This allows machine learning models to be implemented by defining just the forward calculation (i.e. the computation from parameters and data to loss) using the full power and expressivity of Julia. The implementation can use helper functions, loops, conditionals, recursion, closures, tuples and dictionaries, array indexing, concatenation and other high level language features, some of which are often missing in the restricted modeling languages of static computational graph systems like Theano, Torch, Caffe and Tensorflow. GPU operation is supported by simply using the KnetArray type instead of regular Array for parameters and data. Knet builds a dynamic computational graph by recording primitive operations during forward calculation. Only pointers to inputs and outputs are recorded for efficiency. Therefore array overwriting is not supported during forward and backward passes. This encourages a clean functional programming style. High performance is achieved using custom memory management and efficient GPU kernels. See Under the hood for more details.
