9780130336316: MATLAB 6 for Engineers: An Introduction

As the features of MATLAB are becoming more advanced, the literature more confusing and the package harder to navigate, this new text will aim to simplify use of MATLAB 6 by walking the user through the main functions, facilities and applications. It will cover some of the new features, but won't cover any of the advanced features in-depth. Like the previous edition, it will be specifically geared towards the needs of engineering students who are expected to use MATLAB to model and solve real engineering problems.

From the Back Cover:

MATLAB 6 is the latest version of the popular, comprehensive and easy-to-use environment for performing technical and scientific calculations. Its interactive nature
offers invaluable assistance with numeric computation and data visualization.

MATLAB 6 for Engineers provides a clear and concise introduction to MATLAB 6, demonstrating its enhanced programming capabilities and exploring its use in solving engineering problems. Written for engineering students and practising engineers, it shows how MATLAB can be used to perform calculations, store tables and interpolate between stored values, process numbers obtained by data acquisition systems, and prepare engineering and research reports.

The book is split into three parts: Chapter 1 is a concise MATLAB tutorial for users wishing to get quickly acquainted with the package itself; Part I (Chapters 2-10) is an introduction for engineers, beginning with basic calculations and helping the user to master techniques for solving progressively more complex problems; Part II (Chapters 11-18) focuses on more advanced material, featuring specialized applications and new functions.

Key features include:
 * Full coverage of the main features of MATLAB 6
 * A guided introduction to the basic MATLAB functions
 * Written in a clear and readable style
 * A wealth of end of chapter exercises, with solutions to selected problems
 * Real world examples from engineering mathematics, mechanical and electrical engineering
 * Appendices and summaries to reinforce learning
 * Studies of classical engineering problems, for which MATLAB yields concise
 and elegant solutions
