An Engineer’s Guide to MATLAB – Edward B. Magrab – 3rd Edition


An Engineer’s Guide to , 3/e, is an authoritative guide to generating readable, compact, and verifiably correct programs. It is ideal for undergraduate courses in Mechanical, Aeronautical, Civil, and Electrical that require/use .

This highly respected guide helps develop a strong working of MATLAB that can be used to solve a wide range of engineering . Since solving these usually involves relatively short, one-time-use programs, the authors demonstrate how to effectively develop programs that are compact yet readable, easy to debug, and quick to execute. Emphasis is on using MATLAB to obtain to several classes of engineering problems, so technical material is presented in summary form only.
