Introduce the MATLAB language to your students and show how to use it to solve typical problems with the concise, successful ESSENTIALS OF MATLAB® PROGRAMMING, 3E. Author Stephen Chapman emphasizes problem-solving skills throughout this edition as he presents MATLAB as a technical programming language. The book clearly shows students how to write clean, efficient and well-documented programs, while simultaneously introducing them to many of the practical functions of MATLAB. The first seven chapters are ideal for an “Introduction to Programming and Problem Solving” course for freshman engineering students. The last two chapters address more advanced topics of additional data types and plot types, cell arrays, structures, and new MATLAB handle graphics.
“I especially like the emphasis on top-down program design and the use of functions to decompose problem into sub-problems.”
— Ming Leung, Polytechnic Institute of New York University
