Introduction
to Programming Concepts with MATLAB**
This book is intended for an introductory course in MATLAB
programming in STEM (science, technology, engineering, and mathematics)
fields. The first nine chapters of the book focus on MATLAB
commands and sequential programming. Here the user is introduced to
using the program interface, common MATLAB commands for displaying
outputs and mathematical functions, and applications to science and
engineering problems. In the next six chapters, we use MATLAB commands
for basic mathematical procedures learned in the engineering calculus
and ordinary differential equations courses. In the last fourteen
chapters, the user is introduced to basic programming concepts of
conditional statements, repetition, extrinsic functions, and interaction
with external files.

Introduction to Matrix Algebra**
Since 2002, the Introduction to Matrix
Algebra book has been downloaded by more than 30,000 users from 50
different countries. This book is an extended primer for undergraduate
Matrix Algebra. The book is either to be used as a refresher material
for students who have already taken a course in Matrix Algebra or used
as a just-in-time tool if the burden of teaching Matrix Algebra has been
placed on several courses. In my own department, the Linear Algebra
course was taken out of the curriculum a decade ago. It is now taught
just in time in courses like Statics, Programming Concepts, Vibrations,
and Controls. There are ten chapters in the book: 1) Introduction, 2)
Vectors, 3) Binary Matrix Operations, 4) Unary Matrix Operations, 5)
System Of Equations, 6) Gaussian Elimination, 7) LU Decomposition, 8)
Gauss-Seidal Method, 9) Adequacy Of Solutions, 10) Eigenvalues And
Eigenvectors. Open Courseware |
