### Reviews

"This book is an excellent way to learn quickly how to use MATLABâ¦The most significant changes in this edition include a new chapter on vectorized code and manipulating vectors, concepts used in image processing, modified and new end-of-chapter exercises, and the use of MATLAB version R2011a."--**Electrical Insulation Magazine, January 2013, Vol. 29, No. 1, page 66**

"Assuming no knowledge of programming, this book presents both programming concepts and MATLABâs built-n functions, providing a perfect platform for exploiting its extensive capabilities for tackling engineering problems. The book starts with programming concepts such as variables, assignments, input/output, and selection statements, moves onto loops, and then solves problems using both the âprogramming conceptsâ and the âpower of MATLABâ side by side. In-depth coverage is given to input/output, a topic that is fundamental to many engineering applications. New to this edition are more engineering applications to help the reader learn MATLAB in the context of solving technical problems, new and revised end-of-chapter problems, stronger coverage of loops and vectorizing in a new chapter, and updates to reflect current features and functions of the current release of MATLAB."--

"This is the perfect book for anyone wanted to acquire a secure understanding of MATLAB fundaments and master its language. Many engineers and scientists now use MATLAB and Simulink to solve real-world problems. With the help of this book, they will be able to exploit the full power of MATLAB much sooner than they would using the online manuals, and be able to solve real problems much more quickly."--
