Editorial Reviews

Review

"Major highlights of the book are completely transparent examples of classical yet always intriguing mathematical, statistical, engineering, economics, and physics problems. In addition, the book explains a seamless use with Microsoft Word for integrating MATLAB outputs with documents, reports, presentations, or other on-line processes. Advanced topics with examples include: Monte Carlo simulation, population dynamics, and Linear Programming. Overall, it is an outstanding textbook, and, likewise, should be an integral part of the technical reference shelf for most IT professionals. It is a great resource for wherever MATLAB is available!"
ACM Ubiquity


"A readable introduction to using MATLAB 7."
Ian Gladwell, Southern Methodist University for SIAM Review

This is more of a textbook than a guide. It has good examples and a little code, but I was hoping for more code examples and found it only a good companion to my normal textbook,

wonderful book for assisting with MATLAB. I'm an undergraduate engineering student and i would not have gotten through my course in Numerical Methods without the help of this book! highly recommended.

[A review of the 2nd edition.]

The 2nd edition includes descriptions of Matlab 7. But in fact, much of the text seems unchanged from the 1st edition. Because while Matlab continues to add refinements, it is by now very stable in its core functionality. Thus, at least for beginners, the book is useful, regardless of which precise version of Matlab is on your machine.

Many of the examples are indeed quite easy. The underlying maths knowledge is at the undergraduate level. Say for 1st or 2nd year undergrad maths courses. One example uses Lagrange's equation in classical mechanics. That seems to be about as advanced as matters get.

The graphical capability of Matlab given by the book is equivalent to what Mathematica provides. Though perhaps the latter has somewhat spiffier graphics, the graphical functionality is about the same.

Do not buy this book if you are a beginner. It is not for beginners and is quite antiquated. Material is too complex and the example do not clearly demonstrate how to utilize the basic functions of MatLab.
