**Physical Modeling in MATLAB**

by Allen Downey

**Publisher**: Green Tea Press 2014**ISBN/ASIN**: 0615185509**ISBN-13**: 9780615185507**Number of pages**: 155

**Description**:

An introductory textbook for people who have not programmed before. Covers basic MATLAB programming with emphasis on modeling and simulation of physical systems. The book starts with scalar values and works up to vectors and matrices very gradually. This approach is good for beginning programmers, because it is hard to understand composite objects until you understand basic programming semantics.
