From the Back Cover

Learn how to use MATLAB® to solve complex numerical problems

Increasingly, scientists and engineers favor MATLAB over conventional programming languages such as FORTRAN and C when they wish to solve complex problems. This book will enable readers to solve problems without needing to understand all the details of the underlying theory of numerical methods. By providing many examples of the uses of similar functions, it guides them towards the selection of the appropriate MATLAB functions for solving their problem efficiently.

The authors have incorporated existing MATLAB functions into a series of simplified, yet complete programs that may be readily adapted by students and practitioners to solve real-world engineering and science problems. Key features include:

  • More than 100 supplemental codes
  • Complete MATLAB programs to demonstrate solutions to real-life
  • exercises and problems
  • Downloadable MATLAB programs to correspond with the text
  • Interactive demonstration programs that course instructors can use to produce visual presentations of the solution processes of some algorithms
  • An overview of the Partial Differential Equation (PDE) toolbox
  • An appendix with MATLAB commands/functions for symbolic computation

With very little prior programming experience, students and practitioners will find this approach invaluable to quickly learn how to solve their numerical problems.

By W Boudville HALL OF FAMEVINE VOICE on July 29, 2006
Format: Hardcover
The authors demonstrate how Matlab can be used for advanced numerical calculations. Many Matlab books just use numerical examples that are really elementary, from a scientific or engineering viewpoint. Those texts are more about teaching Matlab. Hence they choose simple examples, to reach a broad audience. Whereas the audience for this book is rather select. Probably tending towards professionals in the physical sciences or engineering. Or possibly grad students in these fields.

The text starts with matrix [linear] algebra. Explaining how to invert a linear system of equations. Then the book goes onto finding roots of non-linear equations, using Newton-Raphson iteration. And the always useful methods of numerical differentiation and integration. Plus other topics. Each chapter has an extensive problem set.

A central theme is that you don't need much previous knowledge of Matlab. The book guides you into its abilities to help your research.

I have looked at about 20 matlab books and this is by far the best one you can buy. This book provides examples using m-files and is very easy to understand.
