MATLAB provides a powerful interactive computing environment for numeric computation, visualization, and data analysis. Its wide range of commands, functions, and language constructs permit users to solve and analyze difficult computational problems from science and engineering without programming in a general purpose language. This document is not intended to be a complete manual for MATLAB users. Instead, it provides a brief introduction to MATLAB, outlining features that might be of particular use to CPSC 302 and 303 students.

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.
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.
