    With the spread of the powerhouse MATLAB® software into nearly every area of math, science, and engineering, it is important to have a strong introduction to using the software. Updated for version 7.0, MATLAB® Primer, Seventh Edition offers such an introduction as well as a "pocketbook" reference for everyday users of the software. It offers an intuitive language for expressing problems and solutions both numerically and graphically.

    The latest edition in this best-selling series, MATLAB® Primer, Seventh Edition incorporates a number of enhancements such as changes to the desktop, new features for developing M-files, the JIT accelerator, and an easier way of importing Java classes. In addition to the features new to version 7.0, this book includes:

  • A new section on M-Lint, the new debugger for M-files
  • A new chapter on calling Java from MATLAB and using Java objects inside the MATLAB workspace
  • A new chapter on calling Fortran from MATLAB
  • A new chapter on solving equations: symbolic and numeric polynomials, nonlinear equations, and differential equations
  • A new chapter on cell publishing, which replaces the "notebook" feature and allows the creation of Word, LaTeX, PowerPoint, and HTML documents with executable MATLAB commands and their outputs
  • Expanded Graphics coverage-including the 3D parametrically defined seashells on the front and back covers

    Whether you are new to MATLAB, new to version 7.0, or simply in need of a hands-on, to-the-point reference, MATLAB® Primer provides the tools you need in a conveniently sized, economically priced pocketbook.
