Plot graphs, solve equations, and write code in a flash!
If you work in a STEM field, chances are you’ll be using MATLAB on a daily basis. MATLAB is a popular and powerful computational tool and this book provides everything you need to start manipulating and plotting your data. MATLAB has rapidly become the premier data tool, and MATLAB For Dummies is a comprehensive guide to the fundamentals. MATLAB For Dummies guides you through this complex computational language from installation to visualization to automation.
Learn MATLAB’s language fundamentals including syntax, operators, and data types
Understand how to use the most important window in MATLAB – the Command Window
Get the basics of linear algebra to get up and running with vectors, matrices, and hyperspace
Automate your work with programming scripts and functions
Plot graphs in 2D and 3D to visualize your data
Includes a handy guide for MATLAB’s functions and plotting routines
MATLAB is an essential part of the analysis arsenal and MATLAB For Dummies provides clear, thorough guidance to get the most out of your data.
Since its introduction in 1984, MATLAB’s ever-growing popularity and functionality have secured its position as an industry-standard software package. The user-friendly, interactive environment of MATLAB 6.x, which includes a high-level programming language, versatile graphics capabilities, and abundance of intrinsic functions, helps users focus on their applications rather than on programming errors. MATLAB has now leapt far ahead of FORTRAN as the software of choice for engineering applications.
Cloudburst is a book born of people’s experiences; people who are finding ways of living harmoniously with nature rather than exploiting it. It is hoped that this book will provide the means for other people to live similarly. Cloudburst was compiled fitfully, with no deadlines, in no hurry. It grew slowly, in stages, in the hours not taken by the daily duties which a rural existence demands.
Need to know how to build and test models based on data? Intermediate Statistics For Dummies gives you the knowledge to estimate, investigate, correlate, and congregate certain variables based on the information at hand. The techniques you’ll learn in this book are the same techniques used by professionals in medical and scientific fields.
Picking up right where Statistics For Dummies left off, this straightforward, easy-to-follow book guides you beyond Central Limit Theorem and hypothesis tests and immerses you in flavors of regression, ANOVA, and nonparametric procedures. Unlike regular statistics books, this guide provides full explanations of intermediate statistical ideas; computer input dissection; an extensive number of examples, tips, strategies, and warnings; and clear, concise step-by-step procedures—all in a language you can understand. You’ll soon discover how to:
– Analyze data and base models off of your data
– Make predictions using regression
– Compare many means with ANOVA
– Test models using Chi-square
– Dealing with abnormal data
In addition, this book includes a list of wrong statistical conclusions and common questions that professors ask using computer output. This book also adopts a nonlinear approach, making it possible to skip to the information you need without having to read previous chapters. With Intermediate Statistics For Dummies, you’ll have all the tools you need to make important decisions in all types of professional areas—from biology and engineering to business and politics!
