This book arose from notes written for matlab training courses run within the Australian Defence Science and Technology Organisation.
The book is in two parts. Each part was originally a two-day course,designed assuming that students were seated at a computer with matlab running.
Part 1 is an introductory course suitable for those with no experience at all with matlab. It is written in a self contained way; if you go through the notes, all the new commands and ideas are explained as they are introduced.
Part 2 is a more advanced course suitable for those who are already familiar with the basics of matlab. It covers a variety of topics, some of which you may not be interested in; if so, you should be able to skip that section without detriment to other sections.
