The essential guide to MATLAB as a problem solving tool This text presents MATLAB both as a mathematical tool and a programming language, giving a concise and easy to master introduction to its potential and power. Stressing the importance of a structured approach to problem solving, the text gives a step-by-step method for program design and algorithm development. The fundamentals of MATLAB are illustrated throughout with many examples from a wide range of familiar scientific and engineering areas, as well as from everyday life. Features: ac Includes MATLAB Version 7.2, Release 2006a ac Numerous simple exercises provide hands-on learning of MATLABas functions ac A new chapter on dynamical systems shows how a structured approach is used to solve more complex problems. ac Common errors and pitfalls highlighted ac Concise introduction to useful topics for solving problems in later engineering and science courses: vectors as arrays, arrays of characters, GUIs, advanced graphics, simulation and numerical methods ac Text and graphics in four colour ac Extensive instructor support Essential MATLAB for Engineers and Scientists is an ideal textbook for a first course on MATLAB or an engineering problem solving course using MATLAB, as well as a self-learning tutorial for students and professionals expected to learn and apply MATLAB for themselves.
