Getting Started with MATLABby Rudra Pratap
Synopses & Reviews
MATLAB, a software package for high-performance numerical computation and visualization, is one of the most widely used tools in the engineering field today. Its broad appeal lies in its interactive environment, which features hundreds of built-in functions for technical computation, graphics, and animation. In addition, MATLAB provides easy extensibility with its own high-level programming language.
Enhanced by fun and appealing illustrations, Getting Started with MATLAB employs a casual, accessible writing style that shows users how to enjoy using MATLAB.
* Discusses new features and applications, including the new engine of symbolic computation in MATLAB 7.8 (released March 2009)
* Provides two sets of self guided tutorials for learning essential features of MATLAB
* Includes updated commands, examples, figure, and graphs
* Familiarizes users with MATLAB in just a few hours though self-guided lessons
* Covers elementary, advanced, and special functions
* Supplements any course that uses MATLAB
* Works as a stand-alone tutorial and reference

MATLAB (short for Matrix Laboratory) is a software tool used widely in engineering curriculum that provides high-performance numerical computational, graphical, and animation capabilities. Many of OUP's engineering titles, including Lathi's Modern Digital and Analog Communications, 4e, the forthcoming Uicker, Pennock and Shigley's Theory of Machines and Mechanisms, 4e, and Sadiku's Elements of Electromagnetics, 5e, incorporate MATLAB codes into the homework problems and chapter examples.
The new edition brings the book up to date with MATLAB version 2009a. This includes updating commands, examples, figure, and graphs. Chapter 8 also underwent a complete revamp to address the restructure of symbolic computation in the new version of MATLAB. The author is also taking this opportunity to add additional examples and new topics, including nested functions and PDEs.
The book is supplemental in nature and is essentially an introductory user's guide, and is used in a variety of different engineering and science courses.
