All disciplines of science and engineering use numerical methods for complex problem analysis, due to the highly mathematical nature of the field. Analytical methods alone are unable to solve many complex problems engineering students and professionals confront. Introduction to MATLAB® Programming for Engineers and Scientists examines the basic elements of code writing, and describes MATLAB® methods for solving common engineering problems and applications across the range of engineering disciplines. The text uses a class-tested learning approach and accessible two-color page design to guide students from basic programming to the skills needed for future coursework and engineering practice.
