  • create Graphical User Interface (GUI) with MATLAB

12.1 Introduction

Simulink is a graphical extension to MATLAB for problem solving, modeling, and simulation of systems. In Simulink, the system equations are represented on the screen as block diagrams. The component blocks include sources, integrator blocks, transfer functions, summing junctions, measurement blocks, and so on, as per the requirement of a specific system. Simulink is integrated with MATLAB and data can be easily transferred between programs. ...
