Description

Based on a teach-yourself approach, the fundamentals of MATLAB are illustrated throughout with many examples from a number of different scientific and engineering areas, such as simulation, population modelling, and numerical methods, as well as from business and everyday life. Some of the examples draw on first-year university level maths, but these are self-contained so that their omission will not detract from learning the principles of using MATLAB.

This completely revised new edition is based on the latest version of MATLAB. New chapters cover handle graphics, graphical user interfaces (GUIs), structures and cell arrays, and importing/exporting data. The chapter on numerical methods now includes a general GUI-driver ODE solver.

Key Features

  • Maintains the easy informal style of the first edition
  • Teaches the basic principles of scientific programming with MATLAB as the vehicle
  • Covers the latest version of MATLAB

Readership

1st year undergraduate science, mathematics and engineering students

Reviews

Of all the introductions I have seen to MATLAB this text does by far the most thorough job. I recommend [it] to anyone who wishes to become an expert MATLAB user - this book shows the way. J.A.C. Weideman, Oregon State University, USA and Stellenbosch University, South Africa
