Kermit Sigmon, author of the MATLAB® Primer, passed
away in January 1997. Kermit was a friend, colleague,
and fellow avid bicyclist (although I’m a mere 10-mile-aday
commuter) with whom I shared an appreciation for
the contribution that MATLAB has made to the
mathematics, engineering, and scientific community.
MATLAB is a powerful tool, and my hope is that in
revising our book for MATLAB 7.0, you will be able to
learn how to apply it to solving your own challenging
problems in mathematics, science, and engineering....
