### MATLAB Tutorial

This tutorial is available as
a supplement to the textbook *Fundamentals of Signals and Systems
Using Matlab* by Edward
Kamen and Bonnie
Heck, published by Prentice
Hall. A version of the tutorial that is suitable for printing
can be accessed by viewing the tutorial.pdf
file. The tutorial covers basic MATLAB commands that are used
in introductory signals and systems analysis. It is meant to serve
as a quick way to learn MATLAB and a quick reference to the commands
that are used in this textbook.An easy way to learn MATLAB is
to sit down at a computer and follow along with the examples given
in this tutorial and the examples given in the textbook.

The tutorial is designed for students
using either the professional version of MATLAB (ver. 5.0) with
the Control Systems Toolbox (ver. 4.0) and the Signal Processing
Toolbox (ver. 4.0), or using the Student Edition of MATLAB (ver.
5.0). For more information on MATLAB, contact The
Mathworks, Inc.
