File Author/Source Description
Scope (Installer for Windows) Andri M. Gretarsson Installer for an oscilloscope/function generator/spectrum analyzer using the sound card for input/output. To install, run the file  "scope\scope installer\Volume\setup.exe" .  Run the intalled program by starting the program from the Windows "Start" menu (under Programs or All Programs).

NOTE: If you will be needing to read the .wav files into Matlab, you will need the following function by D. Orofino: wavexread.m.  This is a modified version of Matlab's built-in wavread.m intended to handle "WAVE-FORMAT-EXTENSIBLE"  .wav files like the ones LabView writes. (Similarly, wavexwrite.m replaces the built in wavwrite.m.)
Scope source files (Labview 8.6) Andri M. Gretarsson The LabView (TM) source files for Scope.  You are free to modify and distribute these under the terms of the Creative Commons license.
Oscilloscope (Installer for Windows) Andri M. Gretarsson Installer for a simple oscilloscope using the sound card for input. To install, run the file "oscilloscope\oscilloscope installer\Volume\setup.exe" .  Run the intalled program by starting the program from the Windows "Start" menu (under All Programs).

Matlab

File Author/Source Description
matlab_tools.zip Andri M. Gretarsson Matlab functions written by me over a period of a decade or so of using Matlab.  They concentrate heavily on functions useful for my work as a physicist.
matlab_tools_additional.zip External Additional Matlab functions that I keep in my path.  Some were written by friends and colleages, others were downloaded from the Mathworks File Exchange website.
optics_toolkit.zip Andri M. Gretarsson The optics toolkit part of of the matlab_tools.zip file above.  It is a standalone code that includes functions needed to work with laser beams and standard optics.


LaTeX

File Author/Source Description
physics.sty Andri M. Gretarsson Style file providing a number of commands convenient for writing physics papers.
SyracuseThesis.sty Andri M. Gretarsson A fairly generic (Syracuse University) Theses style file.  Easy to modify.
reflist.bib Andri M. GretarssonMy list of references collected over some years. Concentrates somewhat on thermal noise, since that was the subject of my Ph.D. thesis.
ligodoc.tar.gz Andri M. Gretarsson LIGO document style file allowing use of various classes. Something of a hack but doesn't require any extra libraries. Comes with a template .tex file.  Both ligodoc and ligodcc (below) provide a LIGO Document Control Center - style front page.
ligodcc.tar.gz Unknown LIGO document class file. Nicely coded but requires several extra libraries. Choose either ligodoc or ligodcc as they are not compatible.
