Reviews of the previous edition

"Major highlights of the book are completely transparent examples of classical yet always intriguing mathematical, statistical, engineering, economics, and physics problems. In addition, the book explains a seamless use with Microsoft Word for integrating MATLAB® outputs with documents, reports, presentations, or other online processes. Advanced topics with examples include: Monte Carlo simulation, population dynamics, and linear programming. [...] an outstanding textbook, and, likewise, should be an integral part of the technical reference shelf for most IT professionals. It is a great resource for wherever MATLAB® is available!"
ACM Ubiquity

"This is a short, focused introduction to MATLAB®, a comprehensive software system for mathematical and technical computing. For the beginner it explains everything needed to start using MATLAB®, while experienced users [...] will find much useful information here."
