Advanced Engineering Mathematics using MATLAB® is written for engineers and engineering students who are interested in applying MATLAB to solve practical engineering problems. The book emphasizes mathematical principles, not computations, with MATLAB employed as a tool for analysis that shows how engineering problems are defined and solved. The underlying philosophy of the book is: "The purpose of computing is insight, not numbers." The book features complete MATLAB integration throughout, abundant examples that show real practical applications, and end-of-chapter problems that reinforce techniques.
