Book description
More college students use Amos Gilat's MATLAB: An Introduction with Applications than any other MATLAB textbook. This concise book is known for its justintime learning approach that gives students information when they need it. The new edition gradually presents the latest MATLAB functionality in detail. Equally effective as a freshmenlevel text, selfstudy tool, or course reference, the book is generously illustrated through computer screen shots and stepbystep tutorials, with abundant and motivating applications to problems in mathematics, science, and engineering.
