This engaging book is a concise introduction to the essentials of the MATLAB programming language.

Learning MATLAB is ideal for readers seeking

  • a focused and brief approach to the software;
  • numerous examples and exercises involving the software's most useful and sophisticated features; and
  • an overview of the most common scientific computing tasks for which the software can be used.

The presentation is designed to guide new users through the basics of interacting with and programming in the MATLAB software, while also presenting some of its more important and advanced techniques, including how to solve common problem types in scientific computing. Rather than including exhaustive technical material, the author teaches through readily understood examples and numerous exercises that range from straightforward to very challenging. Readers are encouraged to learn by doing: entering the examples themselves, reading the online help, and trying the exercises.

This handbook is suitable for graduate students, advanced undergraduate students, and professional researchers in mathematics, scientific computing, and application areas in science and engineering. It can be used as the primary text for a short course, as a companion textbook for a numerical computing course, or for self-study.
