This comprehensive text covers all aspects of MATLAB presented within an easy-to-follow "learn while doing" tutorial format.


Provides a complete reference to all MATLAB functions and graphics properties in one text as opposed to the many manuals that accompany MATLAB itself.
Presents numerous examples that illustrate the usefulness of MATLAB in solving real-world problems.
Includes Mastering MATLAB Toolbox, a collection of over 100 MATLAB M-files that demonstrate the use of MATLAB in performing practical tasks. It also provides tools for Fourier series; interpolation; curve fitting; optimization; data analysis; graphical data analysis; array manipulation; plotting data; GUI construction; and GUI control of axes, line and surface properties.
NEW—Covers all features of MATLAB Version 5.
NEW—Improves coverage of Numerical Analysis.
NEW—Expanded treatment of low level file I/O.
NEW—Clearer explanations on GUI Building.
NEW—More M-file examples.
