Written for a one-semester undergraduate course, this book integrates modeling concepts with statistical analysis while maintaining a focus on enabling users to report errors or uncertainties in their results. The book combines traditional engineering analysis topics with hypothesis testing, supporting the objectives and outcomes of biomedical engineering undergraduate programs. Topics covered include types and sources of numerical error, systems of linear equations, statistics and probability, and root finding techniques for nonlinear equations.
MATLAB is introduced and used to solve numerous examples in the book. In addition, a supplemental set of MATLAB code files is available for download.
