Mathematical modeling using GNU Octave by Prasad Mehendale

Submitted Feb 12, 2019

-GNU Octave is a high-level interpreted language, primarily intended for numerical computations.
-It provides capabilities for the numerical solution of linear and nonlinear problems, and for performing other numerical experiments.
-It also provides extensive graphics capabilities for data visualization and manipulation.
-Octave is normally used through its interactive command line interface, but it can also be used to write non-interactive programs.
-The Octave language is quite similar to Matlab so that most programs are easily portable.
-Octave is FREE. It is distributed under the terms of the GNU General Public License.

I will explain two models using GNU-octave and while doing so, participants can learn about Octave.


  1. Introduce GNU-octave
  2. Create mathematical models for real-life problems.
  3. Write GNU-Octave scripts.
  4. Show the outputs and validate results.


  1. LCD projector
  2. Latest version of GNU-octave (4.4) installed on participants’ linux computers.
