Information
The essential guide to MATLAB as a problem solving toolThis 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:* Includes MATLAB Version 7.2, Release 2006a* Numerous simple exercises provide hands-on learning of MATLAB's functions* A new chapter on dynamical systems shows how a structured approach is used to solve more complex problems.* Common errors and pitfalls highlighted* 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* Text and graphics in four colour* Extensive instructor supportEssential 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.Additional material is available for lecturers only at http://textbooks.elsevier.com.
