9780123850812: Matlab: A Practical Introduction to Programming and Problem Solvi

Assuming no knowledge of programming, this book presents both programming concepts and MATLAB's built-in functions, providing a perfect platform for exploiting MATLAB's extensive capabilities for tackling engineering problems. It starts with programming concepts such as variables, assignments, input/output, and selection statements, moves onto loops and then solves problems using both the 'programming concept' and the 'power of MATLAB' side-by-side. In-depth coverage is given to input/output, a topic that is fundamental to many engineering applications. Ancillaries available with the text: Instructor solution manual (available Aug. 1st); electronic images from the text (available Aug 16th); and, m-files (available Aug 1st). This title presents programming concepts and MATLAB built-in functions side-by-side, giving students the ability to program efficiently and exploit the power of MATLAB to solve problems. It offers in-depth coverage of file input/output, a topic essential for many engineering applications. It features systematic, step-by-step approach, building on concepts throughout the book, facilitating easier learning. It includes sections on 'common pitfalls' and 'programming guidelines' that direct students towards best practice. The following are new to this edition: more engineering applications that help the reader learn Matlab in the context of solving technical problems; new and revised end of chapter problems; and, stronger coverage of loops and vectorizing in a new chapter, chapter 5. It is updated to reflect current features and functions of the current release of Matlab.

Review:

"This book is an excellent way to learn quickly how to use MATLAB.The most significant changes in this edition include a new chapter on vectorized code and manipulating vectors, concepts used in image processing, modified and new end-of-chapter exercises, and the use of MATLAB version R2011a."--Electrical Insulation Magazine, January 2013, Vol. 29, No. 1, page 66 "This book is an excellent way to learn quickly how to use MATLAB.Anyone who wants to learn the basis of MATLAB quickly should own this book."--IEEE Electrical Insulation Magazine, page 66 "In-depth coverage is given to input/output, a topic that is fundamental to many engineering applications. New to this edition are more engineering applications to help the reader learn MATLAB in the context of solving technical problems, new and revised end-of-chapter problems, stronger coverage of loops and vectorizing in a new chapter and updates to reflect current features and functions of the current release of MATLAB."--Lunar and Planetary Information "Assuming no knowledge of programming, this book presents both programming concepts and MATLAB's built-n functions, providing a perfect platform for exploiting its extensive capabilities for tackling engineering problems.

Many engineers and scientists now use MATLAB and Simulink to solve real-world problems. With the help of this book, they will be able to exploit the full power of MATLAB much sooner than they would using the online manuals, and be able to solve real problems much more quickly."--IEEE Electrical Insulation Magazine, page 70
