Beginning MATLAB and Simulink: From Novice to Professional
Employ essential and hands-on tools and functions of the MATLAB and Simulink packages, which are explained and demonstrated via interactive examples and case studies. This book contains dozens of simulation models and solved problems via m-files/scripts and Simulink models which help you to learn programming and modeling essentials. You'll become efficient with many of the built-in tools and functions of MATLAB/Simulink while solving engineering and scientific computing problems.
Beginning MATLAB and Simulink explains various practical issues of programming and modelling in parallel by comparing MATLAB and Simulink. After reading and using this book, you'll be proficient at using MATLAB and applying the source code from the book's examples as templates for your own projects in data science or engineering.
