(Browse http://www.mhhe.com/palm)This is a simple, concise book designed to be useful forbe gin ners and to be kept as a ref er ence. MATLAB is presentlya globally available standard computational tool for en gi neersand scientists. The ter mi nol o gy, syntax, and the use of theprogramming language are well defined and the or ga ni za tionof the material makes it easy to locate information andnavigate through the textbook. The text covers all the majorcapabilities of MATLAB that are useful for beginning stu dents.An instructor’s manual and other web resources are available.NEW TO THIS EDITION• Expanded coverage of programming now includes structuredprogramming and logical variables.• Function handles, anonymous functions, subfunctions, and nestedfunctions are now treated.• Coverage of Simulink® has been expanded to a separate chapter inlight of its growing pop u lar i ty.• A new Appendix B contains an introduction to producinganimation and sound with MATLAB.FEATURES• The text is written for freshman engineering students and usesmathematics appropriate for this level.• Numerous examples and homework prob lems drawn from all thefields of engineering.• Students can use the text as a reference in later courses because itcontains many tables that summarize the MATLAB commands.CONTENTS1 An Overview of MATLAB. 2 Numeric, Cell, and Structure Arrays. 3 Functions andFiles. 4 Programming with MATLAB. 5 Advanced Plotting and Model Building. 6Linear Algebraic Equations. 7 Probability, Sta tis tics, and Interpolation. 8 Nu mer i calCalculus and Dif fer en tial Equations. 9 Simulink. 10 Symbolic Processing withMATLAB.
