The first step is to start up MATLAB on the machine you are using. In the Launch Pad window of the MATLAB desktop, select SIMULINK and then the SIMULINK Library Browser. A number of options are listed, as shown in Figure M2-1 for SIMULINK 4 (Release 12); SIMULINK 5 (Release 13) has a number of additional options. Notice that Continuous has been highlighted; this will provide a list of continuous function blocks available. Selecting Continuous will provide the list of blocks shown in Figure M2-2. The ones that we often use are Transfer Fcn and State-Space.
