With the spread of the powerhouse MATLAB® software into nearly every area of math, science, and engineering, it is important to have a strong introduction to using the software. Updated for version 7.0, MATLAB® Primer, Seventh Edition offers such an introduction as well as a "pocketbook" reference for everyday users of the software. It offers an intuitive language for expressing problems and solutions both numerically and graphically. The latest edition in this best-selling series, MATLAB® Primer, Seventh Edition incorporates a number of enhancements such as changes to the desktop, new features for developing M-files, the JIT accelerator, and an easier way of importing Java classes. In addition to the features new to version 7.0, this book includes: A new section on M-Lint, the new debugger for M-files A new chapter on calling Java from MATLAB and using Java objects inside the MATLAB workspace A new chapter on calling Fortran from MATLAB A new chapter on solving equations: symbolic and numeric polynomials, nonlinear equations, and differential equations A new chapter on cell publishing, which replaces the "notebook" feature and allows the creation of Word, LaTeX, PowerPoint, and HTML documents with executable MATLAB commands and their outputs Expanded Graphics coverage-including the 3D parametrically defined seashells on the front and back covers Whether you are new to MATLAB, new to version 7.0, or simply in need of a hands-on, to-the-point reference, MATLAB® Primer provides the tools you need in a conveniently sized, economically priced pocketbook.Davis, Timothy A. is the author of 'Matlab Primer', published 2004 under ISBN 9781584885238 and ISBN 1584885238.
