    Description

    Cengage India MATLAB Programming for Engineers 6th Edition by Stephen J Chapman

    Present MATLAB® as a technical programming language while emphasizing problem-solving skills with the 6th Edition of Chapman's highly successful MATLAB® PROGRAMMING FOR ENGINEERS. Students learn how to write clean, efficient and well-documented programs, while gaining an understanding of the many practical functions of MATLAB®. This edition reflects the latest advancements in MATLAB® R2018a and includes new MATLAB® GUI Apps. The first nine chapters can serve as a complete text and resource for first-year engineering students' introduction to programming and problem-solving course. The remaining chapters cover more advanced topics, such as I/O, object-oriented programming, and Graphical User Interfaces, and offer an ideal resource for a longer course. These chapter also provide an ongoing, trusted reference tool for upper-level engineering students or practicing engineers who rely upon MATLAB®.
    Key Features:
    - EFFECTIVE LEARNING FEATURES, SUCH AS "GOOD PROGRAMMING" BOXES, HIGHLIGHT STRONG PROGRAMMING SKILLS. These "Good Programming" features guide students toward developing strong habits and effective programming practices as key skills are introduced.
    - PROGRAMMING PITFALL" BOXES HIGHLIGHT COMMON ERRORS. Learning features, such as "Programming Pitfalls," draw attention to frequent mistakes and typical erroneous assumptions so that new programmers can avoid these errors.
    - COVERAGE EMPHASIZES DATA STRUCTURES AND OBJECT-ORIENTED MATLAB®. Students learn to work with data of various types and sizes as well as to create programs using object-oriented techniques.
    - VARIETY OF PROVEN STUDENT LEARNING AIDS HELP ENSURE THOROUGH COMPREHENSION. The author includes a variety of quizzes, end-of-chapter summaries, and questions (with answers) for self-testing. These tools enable students to check their understanding as they progress.
    - The source code for all examples in the book and instructor's source code for all solutions are provided on the book's website.
    - Coverage of the use of functions to decompose tasks into smaller subtasks, data hiding, unit testing, and how to avoid common mistakes helps readers maximize their effective use of MATLAB.
    - Chapter 3 is dedicated to 2D plots, collecting basic plotting information in a single place early in the book so that it can be applied in student exercises.
    - Chapter 8 has been expanded to include a much more extensive coverage of MATLAB plot types.
    - STEP-BY-STEP PRESENTATIONS HELP READERS MAXIMIZE EFFECTIVE USE OF MATLAB®. The author effectively covers the use of functions to decompose tasks into smaller subtasks, data hiding, and unit testing. Readers learn how to avoid common mistakes as well as maximize the tools and techniques available through MATLAB®.
    - TIMELY CONTENT THROUGHOUT THIS LEADING TEXT CONSISTENTLY ADDRESSES THE LATEST MATLAB® FEATURES. Count on your students receiving timely instruction as this edition highlights advancements from the latest MATLAB® version, including the new graphics system, the latest functions and data types, and new MATLAB® Apps.
    - THOROUGH COVERAGE OF MATLAB® TOOLS MAKE PROGRAMMING EASIER. Students examine MATLAB® tools, including the Editor/Debugger, Workspace Browser, Help Browser, and GUI design tools, as they study the principles of clean, efficient programming.
    - THIS EDITION REFLECTS THE LATEST RELEASE OF MATLAB® FOR UP-TO-DATE INSTRUCTION. All content in this edition corresponds to the latest version of MATLAB® R2018a, released April 2018.
    - TIMELY NEW CONTENT HIGHLIGHTS THE NEW MATLAB® GUI APPS. Students study new MATLAB GUI apps. For your flexibility, all material on older GUIDE-based GUIs is now available as an online resource.
    - ADDITIONAL APPLICATIONS AND NEW END-OF-CHAPTER EXERCISES PROVIDE FURTHER OPPORTUNITIES TO APPLY CONCEPTS. Students find numerous and varied options for practicing skills with the contemporary applications, exercises, and problems throughout this edition.
    - NEWER EQUIVALENTS NOW REPLACE COVERAGE OF MANY OLDER MATLAB® FUNCTIONS. For instance, this edition covers histogram instead of hist. The author presents polarplot instead of polar and narginchk instead of narchk as students learn to work with the latest MATLAB® tools and commands.
    - EXPANDED DISCUSSION ADDRESSES MATLAB® PLOT TYPES. This edition's Chapter 8 now offers a much more extensive coverage of MATLAB® plot types to give students a better understanding of the options available to them.
    - EXPANDED COVERAGE OF DATA TYPES. This edition covers string and time data types, along with changes in the support of character and table arrays.
