Perfect for use in a lab or by individuals, PROGRAMMING IN MATLAB® is designed to help anyone interested in electrical and computer engineering develop programming skills using MATLAB® as the programming language. The text is also applicable for those interested in utilizing MATLAB® in industry. MATLAB® is quickly surpassing C, BASIC, and Fortran in engineering departments as the programming language of choice (due to the many functions and toolboxes the program features). It allows the many students who use it to write complex programs to solve a variety of technical problems efficiently. Herniter offers a straightforward approach to learning the program, and assumes no prior exposure to MATLAB®. The book offers comprehensive instructions for programming in MATLAB®, including specific output results and numerous MATLAB® screen captures. Its use is ideal in a lab/lecture setting where readers can recreate examples and complete problem assignments. However, the text organization is also appropriate for use as a general reference guide for programming MATLAB®. Herniter introduces fundamental programming skills, then moves into solving basic problems using built-in MATLAB® functions, and finally into solving engineering problems using MATLAB®.
