Table of Contents
1. Introduction to Problem Solving With MATLAB
This is an introduction to the other chapters and should be considered the book forward.
2. Problem Solving
An engineering problem-solving process using m-file environments is divided into seven steps, and demonstrated by means of a detailed variation of visual representation using UML.
3. Basic Mathematical Computations
Mathematical operations, variable expressions, and vector and matrix computations in an m-file environment are explored.
Engineers use m-files extensively for graphical representations of data and computed values. Examples include vector operations. Tools for plotting are summarized.
5. Introduction to Programming with M-file Scripts
M-file scripts can be used to automate computations and implement complex capabilities.
6. For Loops
For loops are a way to repeat a series of computations using different values. Example include counting balls in an enclosed container and analyzing rocket trajectories.
If statements are a way to make a sequence of computations depend on variable values. Examples include engineering cost analysis.
8. While Loops
While loops are another way to repeat a series of computations using different values. The number of times the loop is executed depends on variable values computed by the loop. Examples include personal finance.
