Synopsis

Engineers around the world depend on MATLAB for its power, usability, and outstanding graphics capabilities. Yet too often, engineering students are either left on their own to acquire the background they need to use MATLAB, or they must learn the program concurrently within an advanced course. Both of these options delay students from solving realistic design problems, especially when they do not have a text focused on applications relevant to their field and written at the appropriate level of mathematics. Ideal for use as a short-course textbook and for self-study Elementary Mathematical and Computational Tools for Electrical and Computer Engineers Using MATLAB fills that gap. Accessible after just one semester of calculus, it introduces the many practical analytical and numerical tools that are essential to success both in future studies and in professional life. Sharply focused on the needs of the electrical and computer engineering communities, the text provides a wealth of relevant exercises and design problems. Changes in MATLAB's version 6.0 are included in a special addendum. The lack of skills in fundamental quantitative tools can seriously impede progress in one's engineering studies or career. By working through this text, either in a lecture/lab environment or by themselves, readers will not only begin mastering MATLAB, but they will also hone their analytical and computational skills to a level that will help them to enjoy and succeed in subsequent electrical and computer engineering pursuits.Showing how MATLAB can help solve computational problems in engineering, Elementary Mathematical and Computational Tools for Electrical and Computer Engineers Using MATLAB , Second Edition explores practical mathematical methods for students, covering numerical techniques of elementary calculus and linear algebra and detailed introductory material on difference equations, complex variables, transformation theory, and probability theory. This integrated approach strengthens students' analytical and computational abilities. Updated to reflect the newest version of MATLAB, this edition features a new layout for enhanced readability. The book covers both linear and nonlinear difference equations, elementary functions, numerical differentiation, integration and ordinary differential equations solving techniques, optimization methods, complex numbers, vectors, matrix algebra and special matrices, geometric and Lorentz transformations, and probability theory. New to the Second Edition: Updated MATLAB syntax that conforms to MATLAB 7.1 Expanded introductory chapter that reduces the need to refer to MATLAB online help or user manuals Special advanced sections for students looking for more challenging material Appendix of symbolic capabilities of MATLAB Smoothing the transition from elementary math, physics, and computer science sequences to more advanced engineering concepts, this book helps students master fundamental quantitative tools that allow them to progress to more complex electrical and computer engineering applications.Showing how MATLABr can help solve computational problems in engineering, Elementary Mathematical and Computational Tools for Electrical and Computer Engineers Using MATLABr, Second Edition explores practical mathematical methods for students, covering numerical techniques of elementary calculus and linear algebra and detailed introductory material on difference equations, complex variables, transformation theory, and probability theory.
