GNU Octave is a highlevel 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 batchoriented language. As part of the GNU Project, it is free software under the terms of the GNU General Public License.

History
The project was conceived around 1988. At first it was intended to be a companion to a chemical reactor design course. Real development was started by John W. Eaton in 1992. The first alpha release dates back to January 4, 1993 and on February 17, 1994 version 1.0 was released. Version 3.0 was released on December 21, 2007.
The program is named after Octave Levenspiel, a former professor of the principal author who was known for his ability to perform quick backoftheenvelope calculations.^{[2]}
