MATLAB for behavioral scientists

£10.99

Product description

Behavioural scientists use computers in virtually all their work-from data collection to analysis, presentation, and simulation. However, there has been no book written to date specifically for behavioural scientists on how to program with a general-purpose programming language. MATLAB for Behavioural Scientists is a tremendously valuable textbook that walks behavioural scientists through the computer programming process, using terms that are relevant to their concerns and appreciating their special programming needs.Author David A. Rosenbaum, a cognitive psychologist with a Ph.D. in experimental psychology, introduces Matrix Laboratory (MATLAB), a powerful computer programming language with an active community of users engaged in many branches of science and engineering. Among its many attractive features, MATLAB offers high-level commands for performing calculations with large as well as small data sets and for generating publication-quality graphics. Throughout the text, Rosenbaum presents each new principle with one or more illustrations of usable code. In addition, each chapter begins with suggestions regarding which actions to perform, followed by the commands required to do so. The book easily functions as a reference source so that readers can turn to a section of interest and quickly obtain the information desired. An accompanying Web site lists programs and code output, complete with color, motion, and sound.This textbook will grant behavioural scientists the intellectual freedom to perform virtually any computational function in solving problems, and consequently may allow practitioners to think, write, and speak more clearly.

This paperback textbook is in very good condition and is mildly shelf-worn.
