Book description
MATLAB: An Introduction with Applications 4th Edition walks readers through the ins and outs of this powerful software for technical computing. The first chapter describes basic features of the program and shows how to use it in simple arithmetic operations with scalars. The next two chapters focus on the topic of arrays (the basis of MATLAB), while the remaining text covers a wide range of other applications.
MATLAB: An Introduction with Applications 4th Edition is presented gradually and in great detail, generously illustrated through computer screen shots and stepbystep tutorials, and applied in problems in mathematics, science, and engineering.
