MATLAB and Simulink Based Books

MATLAB Guide, 3e

Written for both beginners and more experienced users, including students, researchers, and practitioners, MATLAB Guide, 3e is a lively and concise introduction to the most important features of MATLAB and Symbolic Math Toolbox. The book has been completely revised and is more than 30 percent longer than the second edition.

Key features of this edition include:

  • A tutorial in Chapter 1 that gives a hands-on overview of MATLAB
  • A thorough treatment of MATLAB mathematics, including the linear algebra and numerical analysis functions and the differential equation solvers
  • A web page that provides example program files, updates, and links to MATLAB resources

In addition, readers will find pithy discussions of related topics in new “Asides" boxes that augment the text as well as color figures throughout. New chapters on the Parallel Computing Toolbox, Symbolic Math Toolbox, object-oriented programming, graphs, and large data sets have also been added. These chapters cover important new MATLAB data types, such as categorical arrays, string arrays, tall arrays, tables, and timetables; contain more details on MATLAB workflow, including the Live Editor and unit tests; and fully reflect major updates to the MATLAB graphics system.
