MATLAB has turn into the usual software tool for solving scientific and engineering problems because of its powerful built-in functions and its ability to program. Assuming no knowledge of programming, this book guides the reader through both programming and built-in functions to easily exploit MATLAB’s extensive capabilities for tackling engineering problems.
The book starts with programming concepts, such as variables, assignments, and selection statements, moves on to loops, and then solves problems the use of both the programming concept and the power of MATLAB. In-depth coverage is given to input/output, a subject fundamental to many engineering applications.
The third edition of MATLAB: A Practical Introduction to Programming and Problem Solving has been up to date to reflect the functionality of the present version of MATLAB. It features new and revised end-of-chapter exercises, stronger coverage of loops and vectorizing, and more engineering applications to assist the reader learn this software tool in context.
- Presents programming concepts and MATLAB built-in functions side-by-side
- Systematic, step by step approach, building on concepts all the way through the book, facilitating easier learning
- Sections on common pitfalls and programming guidelines direct students towards best practice
