PRESCRIBED TEXT FOR ELEC2103 AT THE UNIVERSITY OF SYDNEY, SEMESTER 2 2010
Introduction to MATLAB for Engineers is a simple, concise book designed to be useful for beginners and to be kept as a reference. MATLAB is a globally available standard computational tool for engineers and scientists. The terminology, syntax, and the use of the programming language are well defined, and the organization of the material makes it easy to locate information and navigate through the textbook. The text covers all the major capabilities of MATLAB that are useful for beginning students.
# A new Chapter 11 covering the MuPad Notebook Interface. This interface makes it easier to access functions with a symbol palette, with the equations displayed in typeset math. Graphics, animations, and descriptive text can be included to prepare a report.
# Advanced programming, function discovery, and regression are now covered in two chapters to allow for flexible coverage.
# Numerous examples and homework problems drawn from all the fields of engineering.
# Students can use the text as a reference in later courses because it contains many tables that summarize the MATLAB commands.
# Expanded coverage of programming includes structured programming and logical variables.
# A full chapter covering Simulink
# To purchase an electronic version of this title visit www.coursesmart.com (ISBN 007736001X).
# The text is written and uses mathematics appropriate for the freshman level.
# A text website will feature instructor's solutions manual, image library, MATLAB files, and lecture power points. Text URL is: mhhe.com/palm
