Written for students and programmers, this book provides a comprehensive introduction to MATLAB with a focus on data analysis and visualization. The book begins by looking at the main tools—the desktop, command, and history windows; the editor; and the help browser—and focuses on the functions and topics most common in MATLAB. Topics covered include a preliminary approach to data and M-files, scripts and functions, numerical arrays, and flow control.
MATLAB is used throughout the book to solve many application examples. In addition, a supplemental set of MATLAB M-files is available for download.
