Dynamical Systems

  • The objective of this chapter is to discuss the importance of learning to use tools like MATLAB. MATLAB and companion toolboxes provide engineers, scientists, mathematicians, and students of these fields with an environment for technical computing applications. It is much more than a programming language like C, C++ or Fortran. Technical computing includes mathematical computation, analysis, visualization, and algorithm development.
  • In order to examine MATLAB capabilities in this area, we are going to focus on two examples.
