"Increasingly, scientists and engineers favor MATLAB over conventional programming languages, such as FORTRAN and C when they wish to solve complex problems. This book will enable readers to solve problems without needing to understand all the details of the underlying theory of numerical methods. By providing many examples of the uses of similar functions, it guides them towards the selection of the appropriate MATLAB functions for solving their problem efficiently."--BOOK JACKET.
