Review of previous edition: 'Major highlights of the book are completely transparent examples of classical yet always intriguing mathematical, statistical, engineering, economics, and physics problems. In addition, the book explains a seamless use with Microsoft Word for integrating MATLAB (R) outputs with documents, reports, presentations, or other online processes. Advanced topics with examples include: Monte Carlo simulation, population dynamics, and linear programming. ... an outstanding textbook, and, likewise, should be an integral part of the technical reference shelf for most IT professionals. It is a great resource for wherever MATLAB (R) is available!' ACM Ubiquity
