Unformatted text preview: MATLAB Primer Third Edition Kermit Sigmon Department of Mathematics University of Florida Department of Mathematics • University of Florida • Gainesville, FL 32611 [email protected] Copyright c 1989, 1992, 1993 by Kermit Sigmon On the Third Edition The Third Edition of the MATLAB Primer is based on version 4.0/4.1 of MATLAB. While this edition reflects an extensive general revision of the Second Edition, most sig nificant is the new information to help one begin to use the major new features of version 4.0/4.1, the sparse matrix and enhanced graphics capabilities. The plain T E X source and corresponding PostScript file of the latest printing of the MATLAB Primer are always available via anonymous ftp from: Address: math.ufl.edu Directory: pub/matlab Files: primer.tex, primer.ps You are advised to download anew each term the latest printing of the Primer since minor improvements and corrections may have been made in the interim. If ftp is unavailable to you, the Primer can be obtained via listserv by sending an email message to list [email protected] containing the single line send matlab/primer.tex . Also available at this ftp site are both English ( primer35.tex, primer35.ps ) and Spanish ( primer35sp.tex, primer35sp.ps ) versions of the Second Edition of the Primer, which was based on version 3.5 of MATLAB. The Spanish translation is by Celestino Montes, University of Seville, Spain. A Spanish translation of the Third Edition is under development. Users of the Primer usually appreciate the convenience and durability of a bound copy with a cover, copy center style.

Department of Mathematics • University of Florida • Gainesville, FL 32611 [email protected] i Introduction MATLAB is an interactive, matrixbased system for scientific and engineering numeric computation and visualization. You can solve complex numerical problems in a fraction of the time required with a programming language such as Fortran or C. The name MATLAB is derived from MATrix LABoratory. The purpose of this Primer is to help you begin to use MATLAB. It is not intended to be a substitute for the User’s Guide and Reference Guide for MATLAB. The Primer can best be used handson. You are encouraged to work at the computer as you read the Primer and freely experiment with examples.
