Chapter 4

MATLAB Functions and Data Import-Export Utilities

Abstract

The objectives of this chapter are to enable you to become familiar with some of the more common MATLAB functions, and to introduce you to ways of importing and exporting data in and out of the MATLAB workspace using the load and save commands, the Import Wizard, and low-level file input/output (I/O) functions. In addition, since problems in science and engineering usually involve special mathematical functions such as sines, cosines, logarithms, etc., this chapter introduces you to the some of the functions of the large collection of such functions in MATLAB.
