Essential Matlab for Engineers and ScientistsBy
- Brian Hahn, Department of Mathematics and Applied Mathematics, University of Cape Town, South Africa
- Dan Valentine, Dept of Mechanical Engineering, Clarkson University,US.
This book provides a concise and well balanced overview of the functionality in MATLAB®. It facilitates independent learning with coverage of both the fundamentals and applications in two parts. The essentials of MATLAB are illustrated throughout with many examples from a wide range of familiar scientific and engineering areas, as well as from everyday life. This 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 professionals and students who are expected to learn and apply MATLAB themselves.
New to this edition:
- Updated with the features of Matlab R2012b
- Expanded discussion of writing functions and scripts
- Additional coverage of formatted output, including more discussion on fprintf
- More exercises and examples throughout
- New chapters on Symbolic Math and SIMULINK® toolboxes
- Companion website for the reader, providing M-files used within the book and selected solutions to end of chapter problems. Visit store.elsevier.com and search on "Essential Matlab"
