Description

With the spread of the powerhouse MATLAB[registered] 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[registered] 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[registered] 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; and, 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[registered] Primer" provides the tools you need in a conveniently sized, economically priced pocketbook.show more
