Experiments with MATLAB
by Cleve Moler
Number of pages: 232
It started out in the late 1970s as a simple "Matrix Laboratory". We want to build on this laboratory tradition by describing a series of experiments involving applied mathematics, technical computing, and Matlab programming. We will introduce Matlab by way of examples. Many of the experiments involve understanding and modifying Matlab scripts and functions that we have already written. You should have access to Matlab and to our exm toolbox, the collection of programs and data that are described in Experiments with MATLAB. We hope you will not only use these programs, but will read them, understand them, modify them, and improve them.

An introductory textbook for people who have not programmed before. Covers basic MATLAB programming with emphasis on modeling and simulation of physical systems. The book starts with scalar values and works up to vectors and matrices very gradually.

This book presents computer programming as a key method for solving mathematical problems. The book outlines the shortest possible path to write simple programs for solving common mathematical problems with numerical methods in engineering courses.
MATLAB is a numerical computing environment and fourth-generation programming language. It started out as a matrix programming language where linear algebra programming was simple. It can be run both under interactive sessions and as a batch job.

The strategic goal of the course and book is to provide learners with an appreciation for the role computation plays in solving engineering problems. This text is specifically designed for students with no programming experience.
