Some Matlab Material
Instead of Matlab you can use just as well
Octave , or the closely related package
Scilab .
These are free, opensource packages, with the same language
structure and semantics.
Matlab Primer: a short primer by K. Sigmon (Univ. Florida)
A more comprehensive introduction is given in the Matlab notes
by David Griffiths (Dundee Univ.)
