About the Book

It is the first book for anyone who wants to know the possibilities of this software. It serves beginners in programming as well as for those who already work with other platforms. As free and open-source software, Scilab is an excellent alternative for those working in scientific computing with proprietary software. This guide aims to present the fundamentals of the environment and the programming language, showing practical examples of its functionalities.

Book topics:

  • Introduction
  • Scilab Objects
  • Matrix Construction and Manipulation
  • The Scilab Language
  • Data Visualization
  • Functions, the Building Blocks of Code
  • Files and Data Persistence
  • Graphical User Interface
  • Applications

The development of the contents resulted from my experience during all academic activities in teaching computer programming for engineering courses, in particular. The topics covered do not exhaust the subject, but offer a factual basis capable of assisting the reader in software resources.

Enjoy!
