Introduction to Octave: For Engineers and Scientists

Sandeep Nagar



Familiarize yourself with Octave using this concise, practical tutorial that is focused on writing code to learn concepts. Starting from the basics, this book covers array-based computing, plotting, and working with files in Octave, which can run MATLAB files without modification. Introduction to Octave is useful for industry engineers, researchers, and students who are looking for open-source solutions for numerical computation.
In this book you will learn by doing, avoiding technical jargon, which makes the concepts easy to learn. First you’ll see how to run basic calculations, absorbing technical complexities incrementally as you progress toward advanced topics. Throughout, the language is kept simple to ensure that readers at all levels can grasp the concepts. 
What You'll Learn
  • Apply sample code to your engineering or science problems
  • Work with Octave arrays, functions, and loops 
  • Use Octave’s plotting functions for data visualization
  • Solve numerical computing and computational engineering problems with Octave
Who This Book Is For
Engineers, scientists, researchers, and students who are new to Octave. Some prior programming experience would be helpful but not required.
