MATLAB For Engineers starts at the beginning to introduce first-year engineering students to MATLAB. Starting with basic algebra, the students learn how MATLAB can be used to solve a wide range of engineering problems. Examples taken from concepts presented in early chemistry, physics, and first- and second-year engineering classes are included. When the text covers new subjects, like statistics and matrix algebra, brief background information is used to support your success. As student work through hands-on examples and exercises, the students will learn to apply a consistent problem-solving methodology it helps them to reach a solution.
