MATLAB® For Engineers starts at the beginning to introduce first-year engineering students to MATLAB. Starting with basic algebra, you'll learn how MATLAB can be used to solve a wide range of engineering problems. Examples taken from concepts presented in early chemistry, physics, and first- and second-year engineering classes are included. When the text covers new subjects, like statistics and matrix algebra, brief background information is used to support your success. As you work through hands-on examples and exercises, you'll learn to apply a consistent problem-solving methodology to help you reach a solution.

The 6th Edition reflects the MATLAB software release R2021B. Updated screenshots, new data, new problems and discussions offer a current view of the coding language and platform you'll use in your classes and career.
