Best-selling author, Delores Etter, introduces engineering professionals to general problem-solving and design techniques through a five-step process that uses MATLAB. Each chapter is organized around a specific application drawn from a variety of engineering disciplines - that illustrates a particular Matlab capability.
1. An Introduction to Engineering Problem Solving.
Grand challenges. Computing systems. An engineering problem solving methodology.

2. MATLAB Environment.
Characteristics of the MATLAB environment. Scalars, vectors, and matrices. Scalar and array operations. Special values and special matrices. Additional plotting capabilities. Problem solving applied: Velocity computations.

3. MATLAB Functions.
Math functions and trigonometric functions. Data analysis functions. Random numbers. Problem solving applied: Flight simulator. Selection statements and selection functions. User-written functions.

4. Matrix Computations.
Matrix operations and functions. Solutions to systems of linear equations.

5. Symbolic Mathematics.
Symbolic algebra. Equation solving. Differentiation and integration.

6. Numerical Techniques.
Interpolation. Curve fitting. Numerical integration. Numerical differentiation.
