GNU Octave is a high-level language and a free software, primarily intended for numerical computations. It can be used by researchers worldwide.
GNU Octave can do arithmetic for real, complex or integer-valued scalars and matrices, solve sets of nonlinear algebraic equations, integrate functions over finite and infinite intervals, and integrate systems of ordinary differential and differential-algebraic equations.
GNU Octave was developed by John W. Eaton in the late 80’s and has undergone several major revisions ever since.
