MATLAB is an interactive system for numerical computation that is widely used for teaching and research in industry and academia. It provides a modern programming language and problem solving environment, with powerful data structures, customizable graphics, and easy-to-use editing and debugging tools.

This third edition of MATLAB Guide completely revises and updates the best-selling second edition and is more than 25 per cent longer. The book remains a lively, concise introduction to the most popular and important features of MATLAB and the Symbolic Math Toolbox.

Key features are:
  • A tutorial in Chapter 1 that gives a hands-on overview of MATLAB.
  • A thorough treatment of MATLAB mathematics, including the linear algebra and numerical analysis functions and the differential equation solvers.
  • A web page provides example program files, updates, and links to MATLAB resources.

    • The new edition:
      • Contains colour figures throughout.
      • Includes pithy discussions of related topics in new "Asides" boxes that augment the text.
      • Has new chapters on the Parallel Computing Toolbox, object-oriented programming, graphs, and large data sets.
      • Covers important new MATLAB data types such as categorical arrays, string arrays, tall arrays, tables, and timetables.
      • Contains more on MATLAB workflow, including the Live Editor and unit tests.
      • Fully reflects major updates to the MATLAB graphics system.
