A Practical Introduction to Programming and Problem Solving
- Stormy Attaway, Ph.D., Boston University, Assistant Professor, Department of Mechanical Engineering, Boston University, and Director of Curricular Assessment and Improvement for the College of Engineering.
The book starts with programming concepts, such as variables, assignments, and selection statements, moves on to loops, and then solves problems using both the programming concept and the power of MATLAB. In-depth coverage is given to input/output, a topic fundamental to many engineering applications.
The third edition of MATLAB: A Practical Introduction to Programming and Problem Solving has been updated to reflect the functionality of the current version of MATLAB. It features new and revised end-of-chapter exercises, stronger coverage of loops and vectorizing, and more engineering applications to help the reader learn this software tool in context.
AudienceEngineers learning to program and model in Matlab. Undergraduates in engineering and science taking a course that uses (or recommends) MATLAB.
