Index.
 More than 200 completely new problems have been added to the 4th Edition.
 A majority of the problems are new or revised.
 Homework problems have been updated to cover a wider range of applications.
 Examples have been updated to ensure coverage is consistent with the latest version of MATLAB.
 The programming chapter (formerly Chapter 7) has been moved to 6 to help engage students with key programming concepts earlier.
 Focused on applying MATLAB as a tool to solve engineering problems.
 Annotated programs simplify topic explanations.
 Helps students learn programming and how to put MATLAB commands to use right away.
 Wellorganized text completely explains a topic, then shows how to apply it to solve problems.
 Students encounter complete explanations of new subjects to support learning.
 Subject matter includes arrays, mathematical operations with arrays, script files, 2D and 3D plotting, programming (flow control),user defined functions, anonymous functions, function functions, function handles, subfunctions and nested functions, polynomials, curve fitting, interpolation, and applications in numerical analysis.
“If you do not know anything about MATLAB, this is the book you should have at the first step…It reinforces the concepts with quality exercise questions.”
“By the end of the semester the students were well on their way to being competent programmers, and I think they will find calculus and physics much easier because of their experience with this book.”
“After studying from Gilat's text for the past month or so I feel very comfortable using Matlab.”
