This is a simple, concise, and useful book, explaining MATLAB for freshmen in engineering. MATLAB is presently a globally available standard computational tool for engineers and scientists. The terminology, syntax, and the use of the programming language are well defined and the organization of the material makes it easy to locate information and navigate through the textbook.
This new text emphasizes that students do not need to write loops to solve many problems. The Matlab "find" command with its relational and logical operators can be used
instead of loops in many cases. This was mentioned in Palm's previous MATLAB texts, but receives more emphasis in this MATLAB 6 edition, starting with Chapter 1, and re-emphasized in Chapter 4.
"synopsis" may belong to another edition of this title.
It is written at the level of freshmen engineering students, and uses mathematics that is appropriate for that level.
It has numerous examples and homework problems drawn from all the fields of engineering.
The students can use the text as a reference in later courses because it contains many tables that summarize the Matlab commands.
