Brief Description:
GNU Octave is a high-level language, primarily intended for numerical computations. It provides a convenient command line interface for solving linear and nonlinear problems numerically, and for performing other numerical experiments using a language that is mostly compatible with Matlab. It may also be used as a batch-oriented language.

What’s Unique about it:
Being compatible with Matlab, GNU Octave can usually substituted for Matlab when a large number of Matlab processes need to be run.  The use of Matlab in this scenario could consume a large number of campus licenses and could interfere with people trying to run Matlab elsewhere on campus

Where it is Used on Campus:
Engineering and Computer Science

How it is Used on Campus:

Sample Output and/or Code Samples:
