Introduction to Programming Concepts with MATLAB
This book is intended for an introductory course in MATLAB programming in STEM (science, technology, engineering, and mathematics) fields. The first nine chapters of the book focus on MATLAB commands and sequential programming. Here the user is introduced to using the program interface, common MATLAB commands for displaying outputs and mathematical functions, and applications to science and engineering problems. In the next six chapters, we use MATLAB commands for basic mathematical procedures learned in the engineering calculus and ordinary differential equations courses. In the last fourteen chapters, the user is introduced to basic programming concepts of conditional statements, repetition, extrinsic functions, and interaction with external files.
