A Quick Introduction for Scientists and Engineers. Rudra Pratap. New York. Oxford University Press. Array operations are known to. The author, however, might buy the reader a cup of coffee in the case of serious distress.

In rare cases of very flattering comments or very creative suggestions about improving this book, the author might even buy the reader lunch. The reader is encouraged. To Ma Gayatri. Bachcha Singh. Creating and Executing a Function File. Linear Algebra. Advanced topics. Double integration. Punctuation Marks and Other Symbols. General-Purpose Commands. Special Variables and Constants.

Language Constructs and Debugging. Operators and Logical Functions. Math Functions. Character String Functions. Now, I expect and enjoy interactive calculation, programming, graphics, animation, and complete portability across platforms—all under one roof.

It is not a complete miracle drug, but I like it and I think you will probably like it too. Although the graphics capability was limited to bare-bones 2-D plots, and programming was not possible on the mainframe VAX, I still loved it. I did all the computations for my Ph. I have given several introductory lectures, demonstrations, and hands-on.

This book is a result of my involvement with M ATLAB teaching, both informal and in the class room, over the last several years.

This book is intended to get you started quickly. After an hour or two of getting started you can use the book as a reference. There are many examples, which you can modify for your own use. This update re- quired checking each command and function given in this book as examples, and changing them if required. New versions of software packages usually add fea- tures that their experienced users ask for.

As a result, the packages and their. I have. It has been. In response to emails I have received from several readers across the globe, I have added more exercises in this edition. I have also added substantial material in Chapter 3 Interactive Computation and Chapter 5 Applications. I was helped through the development of this book by the encouragement, criticism, editing, typing, and test-learning of many people, especially at.

Cornell University and the Indian Institute of Science. I thank all students who have used this book in its past forms and provided constructive criticism. I have also been fortunate to receive feedback by email, sometimes quite.

I greatly appreciate your. Hall, James R. Wohlever, John T. Cipolla, John C. In addition, I must acknowledge the help of three special people. Andy Ruina has been an integral part of the development of this book all along. In fact, he has written most of Chapter 8, the introduction to the Symbolic Math Toolbox.

My ed- itor Peter Gordon at Oxford University Press has always been supportive and kept his word on keeping the price of the book low. Lastly, I thank my wife, Kalpana, for being incredibly supportive through- out. Despite their arrival, if this edition of the book is in your hands, it is because of my wife who provided me with the time to work on the book by shouldering more than her fair share of family responsibilities. Thank you all.

May, It provides an interactive environment with hundreds of built-in functions for technical computation, graphics, and animation. Best of all, it also provides easy extensibility with its own high-level pro- gramming language. The diagram in Fig. Most of these functions use state-of- the art algorithms. There are numerous functions for 2-D and 3-D graphics as well as for animation. Once written, these functions behave just like the built-in functions.

The fundamental data-type is the array. Vectors, scalars, real matrices and complex matrices are all automatically handled as special cases of the basic data-type. What is more, you almost never have to declare the dimensions of a matrix. The built-in functions are. User-written Functions. Built-in Functions. Signal Processing. Solution of ODEs. Collections of Specialized Functions. Control System. System Identification. Neural Networks. Symbolic Mathematics Maple inside.

And Many More. External Interface. Fortran Programs. Figure 1. Consequently, vectorized 1. See Section 8. Mathematica, Maple, and Macsyma are primarily symbolic algebra packages. Of course, they do numerical computations too. In fact, if you know any of these packages really well, you can do almost every calcu- lation that M ATLAB does using that software.

There are other packages, such as Xmath, that are also closer in aim and scope but seem to be popular with people in some specialized application areas.

The bottom line is, in numerical computations, especially those that utilize vectors and matrices, M ATLAB beats everyone hands down in terms of ease of use, availability of built-in functions, ease of programming, and speed. There are more than universities and thousands of companies listed as registered users.

Software packages that do symbolic algebra are also known as Computer Algebra Systems. Contact the com- pany for product information and ordering at the following address:.

Unfortunately, most powerful packages tend to be somewhat intimidating to a beginner. That is why this book exists — to help you overcome the fear, get started quickly, and become productive in very little time. All features are discussed through examples using the following conventions:. So, a command shown as help topic implies that you have to type the actual name of a topic in place of topic in the command.

Explanatory notes have been added within small white rectangles in the gray boxes as shown below. The texts in the white boxes inside these gray boxes are explanatory notes. Most of the ex- amples are designed so that you can more or less follow them without reading the entire text.
