Book Description

5 April 2001 0130170852 978-0130170859 2

For courses in Control Theory and Operational Amplifiers.

Simulink is a programming language specifically designed for simulating dynamical systems using standard block diagram notation. Therefore students should have the appropriate mathematical preparation including a good understanding of the fundamental concepts from introductory courses such as calculus and differential equations. The text presents detailed coverage of programming using Simulink. Beginning with a block diagram tutorial, the book presents an overview of Simulink and describes in detail the procedures for building, editing, and running a Simulink model. The book also provides explanations for debugging techniques, including the interactive debugger. The text concludes with an introduction to Stateflow™, a Simulink extension that adds the capability to model finite state machines subsystems using a variant of the popular Statecharts formalism.

3.0 out of 5 stars A brief introduction, certainly not "mastering Simulink" 20 Jun 2001
By A Customer - Published on
I have been using Simulink ever since it's born in early 90's. I got this book because I have "Mastering Simulink 2" from the same authors. Few years ago, Simulink official manual is poorly written in the sense that a lot of important information were left out. "Master Simulink 2" was useful then. Starting Matlab 6, MathWorks has put in a big effort to roll out its official manuals, especially on Simulink 4. Therefore, this new book has little value (no more information) on top of the existing manuals.
This book has a few nontrivial c-mex file examples that are pretty much the only useful pages I can get some benefits from. The official manual "Writing S-Function" covers a lot more detailed materials to show user how to write c-mex, Fortran-mex, Ada-mex files with Simulink, which is the essence of building any real world design applicaiton. The book did not talk about Simulink Performance Tools, which is a very useful side product to work with Simulink.
Overall, for any beginner who can not access the official MATLAB 6/Simulink 4 manuals, this book is a good choice to solve some simple "textbook" problems. But I doubt anyone can learn much from this book to accomplish serious, pratical, and real-world design applications.

Not the best ever. Does not flow smoothly. I ended up returning it. Kind of a bummer. I think there are some better books out there.
