This is an introduction to the MATLAB, the widely-used mathematical and programing environment from Mathworks, and SIMULINK the dynamic systems modeling environment. Written primarily for engineering students, the book gives you a fundamental knowledge of how to use these sophisticated mathematical modeling environments. The CD-ROM contains the source code for all of the exercises. Engineering is not my area, so I offer the following from the publisher:
"This book provides the optimal introduction to MATLAB and Simulink, the primary tools in engineering, science, and industry for simulating dynamic systems. Using the latest versions of the software, the book also has 20 hands-on projects that provide a practical mastery of the subject areas including the code and executable files. Apart from a basic knowledge of mathematics and physics, no further specialist knowledge is necessary. There are also over 80, in-text, exercises where readers themselves can check their mastery of the material."
