Written for undergraduate- and graduate-level courses on Model-Based Design and numerical methods, this book provides an introduction to computer-aided system design. Topics covered include difference equations and z-transforms, ordinary differential equations (both linear and nonlinear), and numerical methods for solving differential equations.
MATLAB and Simulink are used throughout the book to solve real-world application examples. DSP System Toolbox, Stateflow, SimPowerSystems, Control System Toolbox, and SimMechanics are also discussed. In addition, a supplemental set of MATLAB code files and Simulink models is available for download.
