From the back cover of the 2nd edition:
Now your students can learn MATLAB 4.2, a remarkable time-saving tool
for anyone who studies or designs control systems. Through extensive
interactive examples and exercises that demonstrate MATLAB fundamentals
and its plotting capabilities, students quickly learn how to use the
software to perform calculations and generate graphs essential to
control system analysis and design.
The manual includes an introduction to SIMULINK software and Handle
Graphics. With SIMULINK, students can use block diagrams to simulate
linear and nonlinear systems and display the results.
Handle Graphics is MATLAB's tool for customizing graphics.
Using MATLAB follows the organization of Norman S. Nise's Control
System Engineering, Second Edition and is an ideal supplement to
the text. This manual can also be used alone as an independent guide
to MATLAB for student and professionals, or with other
control systems texts.
