Abstract

In the 1970s, a special computer tool was developed for mathematicians. The tool and its language were named MATLAB®; the term is designed from the three first letters of the two words ‘matrix’ and ‘laboratory’ to emphasize the main element of this language: a matrix. This matrix-based approach unifies the calculating procedures for both algebraic and graphical processing. Within a short course, MATLAB® was adapted and became a convenient tool for technical computing, to the extent that today, engineers use it for quality assurance (QA) in a variety of QA calculations.

In this chapter, the tool desktop and their windows are presented; the starting procedure is introduced; the main commands for simple arithmetical, algebraic, matrix ...
