Download the Book and Support Files

The Book and Support Files folder contains a PDF copy of the book, and all of the Simulink models, MATLAB scripts and data files that you require to work through the examples. The uncompressed file is around 3.4GB in size, so if you are working in a classroom environment, it might be worthwhile only downloading it once and passing it around on a USB drive! The download also contains a copy of our license to use information.

There are two versions of this download available – a ZIP, and a TAR/GZ. Some people have reported the ZIP download times out. If you find this is the case, try downloading the other file. To decompress the TAR/GZ you will need to install some software like 7-Zip.
