9781305970656: Essentials of MATLAB Programming (Activate Learning with these NEW titles from Engineering!)

Introduce the MATLAB language to your students and show how to use it to solve typical problems with the concise, successful ESSENTIALS OF MATLAB PROGRAMMING, 3E. Author Stephen Chapman emphasizes problem-solving skills throughout this edition as he presents MATLAB as a technical programming language. The book clearly shows students how to write clean, efficient and well-documented programs, while simultaneously introducing them to many of the practical functions of MATLAB. The first seven chapters are ideal for an "Introduction to Programming and Problem Solving" course for freshman engineering students. The last two chapters address more advanced topics of additional data types and plot types, cell arrays, structures, and new MATLAB handle graphics.

About the Author:

Stephen J. Chapman received a BS in Electrical Engineering from Louisiana State University (1975), an MSE in Electrical Engineering from the University of Central Florida (1979), and pursued further graduate studies at Rice University. From 1975 to 1980, he served as an officer in the U. S. Navy, assigned to teach Electrical Engineering at the U. S. Naval Nuclear Power School in Orlando, Florida. From 1980 to 1982, he was affiliated with the University of Houston, where he ran the power systems program in the College of Technology. From 1982 to 1988 and from 1991 to 1995, he served as a Member of the Technical Staff of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology's Lincoln Laboratory, both at the main facility in Lexington, Massachusetts, and at the field site on Kwajalein Atoll in the Republic of the Marshall Islands. While there, he did research in radar signal processing systems. He ultimately became the leader of four large operational range instrumentation radars at the Kwajalein field site (TRADEX, ALTAIR, ALCOR, and MMW). From 1988 to 1991, Chapman served as a research engineer at Shell Development Company in Houston, Texas, where he did seismic signal processing research. He was also affiliated with the University of Houston, where he continued to teach on a part-time basis. Mr. Chapman is currently Manager of Systems Modeling and Operational Analysis for BAE Systems Australia, in Melbourne, Australia. He is the technical leader of a team that has developed a model of how naval ships defend themselves. This model contains more than 400,000 lines of MATLAB code written over more than a decade. Mr. Chapman is a Senior Member of the Institute of Electrical and Electronic Engineers (and several of its component societies). He is also a member of the Institution of Engineers (Australia).

Review:

"The big challenge in teaching this course is that once students get beyond the basics of the programming syntax, they have difficulty in approaching and solving more difficult problems. The author does a good job of both explaining and showing how to do just that."

"I am currently using this textbook, because of its simplistic and easy to digest nature for students to understand."

"I especially like the emphasis on top-down program design and the use of functions to decompose problem into sub-problems."
