Description

MATLAB (R), now the industry-standard engineering language for computation, analysis, and visualization, continues to evolve in its capabilities. Version 6.x incorporated several major improvements, including significant enhancements to its graphics features, such as transparencies, increased 3-D visualization, and an improved rendering engine.

The bestselling Graphics and GUIs with MATLAB has been fully revised to reflect MATLAB version 6. The third edition also features a number of improvements in both content and organization that ensure its readers get the optimum level of detail and best possible instruction.

New in the Third Edition:

Full updates that reflect MATLAB 6.x enhancements

Expanded discussions on 2-D and 3-D graphics

New chapters on good GUI design and data visualization techniques

Volume visualizations

Updated language commands

Deeper coverage of programming techniques, such as data structures and callback techniques

Exercises in each chapter

Additional examples and updated illustrations

Graphics and GUIs with MATLAB, Third Edition retains the comprehensible, almost conversational tutorial style that made its predecessors so popular but offers a streamlined organization and deeper coverage that make this edition an even better way to acquire or increase proficiency in using MATLAB to its fullest graphics capabilities.
