Preface
MATLAB® is a very popular language for technical computing used by
students, engineers, and scientists in universities, research institutes, and industries
all over the world. The software is popular because it is powerful and easy
to use. For university freshmen it can be thought of as the next tool to use after
the graphic calculator in high school.
This book was written following several years of teaching the software to
freshmen in an introductory engineering course. The objective was to write a
book that teaches the software in a friendly, non-intimidating fashion. Therefore,
the book is written in simple and direct language. In many places bullets,
rather than lengthy text, are used to list facts and details that are related to a
specific topic. The book includes numerous sample problems in mathematics,
science, and engineering that are similar to problems encountered by new users
of MATLAB.
This sixth edition of the book is updated to MATLAB Release 2016a. In
addition, the end of chapter problems have been revised. In Chapters 1 through
8 close to 70% of the problems are new or different than in previous editions.
I would like to thank several of my colleagues at The Ohio State University.
Professor Richard Freuler for his comments, and Dr. Mike Parke for reviewing
sections of the book and suggested modifications. I also appreciate the involvement
and support of Professors Robert Gustafson, John Demel and Dr. John
Merrill from the Engineering Education Innovation Center at The Ohio State
University. Special thanks go to Professor Mike Lichtensteiger (OSU), and my
daughter Tal Gilat (Marquette University), who carefully reviewed the first edition
of the book and provided valuable comments and criticisms. Professor
Brian Harper (OSU) has made a significant contribution to the new end of
chapter problems in the present edition.
I would like to express my appreciation to all those who have reviewed earlier
editions of the text at its various stages of development, including Betty
Barr, University of Houston; Andrei G. Chakhovskoi, University of California,
Davis; Roger King, University of Toledo; Richard Kwor, University of Colorado
at Colorado Springs; Larry Lagerstrom, University of California, Davis;
Yueh-Jaw Lin, University of Akron; H. David Sheets, Canisius College; Geb
Thomas, University of Iowa; Brian Vick, Virginia Polytechnic Institute and
State University; Jay Weitzen, University of Massachusetts, Lowell; and Jane
Patterson Fife, The Ohio State University. In addition, I would like to acknowledge
Chris Nelson who supported the production of the sixth edition.

Introduction
MATLAB is a powerful language for technical computing. The name MATLAB
stands for MATrix LABoratory, because its basic data element is a matrix
(array). MATLAB can be used for math computations, modeling and simulations,
data analysis and processing, visualization and graphics, and algorithm
development.
MATLAB is widely used in universities and colleges in introductory and
advanced courses in mathematics, science, and especially engineering. In
industry the software is used in research, development, and design. The
standard MATLAB program has tools (functions) that can be used to solve
common problems. In addition, MATLAB has optional toolboxes that are
collections of specialized programs designed to solve specific types of problems.
Examples include toolboxes for signal processing, symbolic calculations, and
control systems.
Until recently, most of the users of MATLAB have been people with
previous knowledge of programming languages such as FORTRAN and C who
switched to MATLAB as the software became popular. Consequently, the
majority of the literature that has been written about MATLAB assumes that
the reader has knowledge of computer programming. Books about MATLAB
often address advanced topics or applications that are specialized to a particular
field. Today, however, MATLAB is being introduced to college students as the
first (and often the only) computer program they will learn. For these students
there is a need for a book that teaches MATLAB assuming no prior experience
in computer programming.
