Item description for Simple Mathematics Using Student Editions of MATLAB by Gunnar Backstrom...

Undergraduate mathematics is difficult mainly because it is presented in the form of derivations and proofs.

These impressive underpinnings made by professional mathematicians may now be taken for granted, and if you only want to make practical use of the theory you may resort to a shortcut. Trust the verifications of generations of mathematicians and proceed directly to applications, involving only the well-known rules of arithmetic. This is the goal of the present book, which also confers understanding of both algebra and calculus.

The overall plan of this book is to illustrate algebra first in a numerical way by MATLAB, until the principles are well understood. Using the Symbolic Tool Box of MATLAB you then study exact solutions to equations and recasting of algebraic expressions. The next object for study is differential and integral calculus, first by numerical means then by exact symbolic transformations. After a chapter on statistics we approach differential equations, first numerically then by symbolic means. After an introduction to functions of two variables we can treat complex numbers and functions. Then we are ready for Fourier series and Fourier transforms, both in numerical and symbolic form. This covers the most frequent needs for science and engineering.

The Student Versions of MATLAB may be ordered from MathWorks Inc. by colleges and universities, which in turn can sell CDs to their students, or simply give them away. The full price is around $80. These educational versions are practically identical to the professional MATLAB program, and the restrictions are of no importance in undergraduate work. An enormous number of MATLAB Student Versions now exist in the world, to be borrowed or purchased second-hand.

Of course, the Professional MATLAB program may also be used, if it includes the Symbolic Math Toolbox.

The MATLAB program evolves regularly, and every two years or so there is a new version number. Fortunately, the enhancements do not concern the elementary functions and procedures used in first-year mathematics. The author of this book has verified that the examples involved run under the versions 5, 6 and 7. In the recent revision R2009a, only the first example on p.107 does not run (a problem with the Symbolic Toolbox that will no doubt be fixed by Mathworks Inc.
