In these sections, we develop a complete C program using the five-step process. Students with background in another computer language should be able to complete this material in less than a semester. All of these topics are presented assuming only a trigonometry and college algebra background.

From the Inside Flap: We have added a new section of problems, titled Exam Practice! A formula is provided as a black box to just type in.

Preface Engineers use computers to solve a variety of problems ranging from the evaluation of a simple function to solving a system of nonlinear equations. A complete set of Power Point slides is included to assist the instructor in preparing lecture material. State the problem clearly. That’s how I felt looking at it and I took a semester class in that Book covers introductory material by dispersing it in different chapters.

Since C is the language that a new engineer is most likely to encounter in a job, it is a good choice for an introduction to computing for engineers. Selected solutions to some of the Modify! Jeanine Ingber was educated at the University of Michigan where she completed a Master’s Degree in Computer Aided Design Engineering.

Therefore, we have included a number of plots of data throughout the text to illustrate the relationships of the information needed to solve specific problems. Style notes show students how to write MATLAB statements that incorporate good software discipline. New algorithms include the sequential search and the binary search.

Simulation, Image Processing, and Complex Number. These exercises also ask the students to make simple modifications to the program and then run the program to test their changes. Etter has held two senior executive positions in the Department of Defense. Student aids are located throughout the text and style notes show students how to write MATLAB statements that incorporate good software discipline. The first set of exercises is Practice!

This book is the cornerstone engineering tutorial in the MATLAB Curriculum Series.
