Assuming no prior background in linear algebra or real analysis,An Introduction to MATLAB®Programming and Numerical Methods for Engineersenables you to develop good computational problem solving techniques through the use of numerical methods and the MATLAB® programming environment. Part One introduces fundamental programming concepts, using simple examples to put new concepts quickly into practice. Part Two covers the fundamentals of algorithms and numerical analysis at a level allowing you to quickly apply results in practical settings.

  • Tips, warnings, and "try this" features within each chapter help the reader develop good programming practices
  • Chapter summaries, key terms, and functions and operators lists at the end of each chapter allow for quick access to important information
  • At least three different types of end of chapter exercises thinking, writing, and coding let you assess your understanding and practice what you've learned
