Opis

MATLAB: A Practical Introduction to Programming and Problem Solving, Second Edition, is the only book that gives a full introduction to programming in MATLAB combined with an explanation of MATLAB’s powerful functions, enabling engineers to fully exploit the software’s power to solve engineering problems. The text aims to provide readers with the knowledge of the fundamentals of programming concepts and the skills and techniques needed for basic problem solving using MATLAB as the vehicle.

The book presents programming concepts such as variables, assignments, input/output, and selection statements as well as MATLAB built-in functions side-by-side, giving students the ability to program efficiently and exploit the power of MATLAB to solve problems. In-depth coverage is given to input/output, a topic that is fundamental to many engineering applications. A systematic, step-by-step approach that builds on concepts is used throughout the book, facilitating easier learning. There are also sections on ‘common pitfalls’ and ‘programming guidelines’ that direct students towards best practice.

This book will be an invaluable resource for engineers, engineering novices, and students learning to program and model in MATLAB.
