An Introduction to Programming and Numerical Methods in MATLAB by S.R. Otto (Eng
An elementary first course for students in mathematics and engineering Practical in approach: examples of code are provided for students to debug, and tasks '" with full solutions '" are provided at the end of each chapter Includes a glossary of useful terms, with each term supported by an example of the syntaxes commonly encountered this text provides a first course in numerical methods and programming taught through the medium of MATLAB. It is designed to give readers their first exposure to any kind of programming. The level is elementary, avoiding deep mathematical descriptions, and the practical approach makes it accessible to anyone with a modest mathematical background.

From the reviews of the first edition: "This book is an introduction to the numerical methods that are frequently used in science and engineering undergraduate courses and it is based on the MATLAB programming environment. '� The text is easy to read even for those who have little experience with computer practice. '� There are three appendices and the most useful of them, about 70 pages, gives solutions to the tasks at the end of chapters." (Matti Vuorinen, Zentralblatt MATH, Vol. 1076, 2006)
