This beginner's introduction to MATLAB teaches a sufficient subset of the functionality and gives the reader practical experience on how to find more information. A forty-page appendix contains unique user-friendly summaries and tables of MATLAB functions enabling the reader to find appropriate functions, understand their syntax and get a good overview. The large number of exercises, tips, and solutions mean that the course can be followed with or without a computer. Recent development in MATLAB to advance programming is described using realistic examples in order to prepare students for larger programming projects.
• Revolutionary step by step 'guided tour' eliminates the steep learning curve encountered in learning new programming languages.
• Each chapter corresponds to an actual engineering course, where examples in MATLAB illustrate the typical theory, providing a practical understanding of these courses.
• Complementary homepage contains exercises, a take-home examination, and an automatic marking that grades the solution.
• End of chapter exercises with selected solutions in an appendix. The development of MATLAB programming and the rapid increase in the use of MATLAB in engineering courses makes this a valuable self-study guide for both engineering students and practising engineers. The reader will find that this time-less material can be used throughout their education and into their career.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

From the reviews:

"The book consists of three parts: an initiation in matlab, more advanced programming in matlab, and some elaborated applications. … The text gives a bottom-up learning-by-example approach. … Thus the reader is forced to sit at the computer and do experiments, which is in my opinion the best and fastest way to learn matlab. The excellent help tool of matlab should do the rest. … The command summaries in the appendices make it … a substitute for the matlab manuals." (Adhemar Bultheel, Bulletin of the Belgian Mathematical Society, Vol. 12 (1), 2005)
