Preface
Index
This introduction to computerbased problem solving using the MATLAB environment is highly recommended for students wishing to learn the concepts and develop the programming skills that are fundamental to computational science and engineering (CSE). Through a "teaching by examples" approach, the authors pose strategically chosen problems to help firsttime programmers learn these necessary concepts and skills. Their approach puts problem solving and algorithmic thinking first and syntactical details second.

Audience
Undergraduate students whose mathematical maturity is at the level of Calculus I will find this book extremely useful, especially as preparation for further courses in computing and mathematics. It can also be used as a MATLAB reference at any level.
