Welcome to Matrix Values! Let me introduce myself. My name is Steve Eddins, and I recently retired from MathWorks after 30 years there. My MathWorks career included image processing, toolbox development, MATLAB development and design, development team management, and MATLAB design standards. I wrote the Steve on Image Processing blog for 18 years, and I co-authored the book Digital Image Processing Using MATLAB.

Now, I spend much of my time studying and performing on the French horn, usually in amateur orchestras. I play in the Melrose Symphony and the Concord Orchestra. I also write about my musical path at my Horn Journey blog. And, I am a member of the Board of Directors, as well as Technology Advisor, for Cormont Music, a nonprofit organization that sponsors the annual Kendall Betts Horn Camp in New Hampshire.

Here is a recording of the Concord Orchestra performing Beethoven’s Coriolan Overture in November 2023.

I am also continuing to work with MATLAB and image processing, and I am continuing to write about those things, because I still enjoy them. That’s what this website, Matrix Values, is about—MATLAB, image processing, and anything else related that happens to catch my interest. You might think of it as a continuation of Steve on Image Processing. Only, now it is my hobby, an avocation, not my day job.

If this sounds interesting to you, then I invite you to follow along. You can sign up for the mailing list, or use the RSS feed, or follow me on LinkedIn. Together, we’ll see where this goes.
