Want a top-shelf data analysis package on a bottom-shelf budget? Try Octave, the free, open-source alternative to MATLAB. In this course, Curt Frye shows information workers how to perform advanced data analysis using Octave. Learn how to use its built-in commands, operators, and functions to perform statistical and numeric analysis; create and manipulate matrices; and manage executable programs and scripts.
Hi, I'm Curt Frye. Welcome to Up and Running with Octave. In this course, I'll show you how to use Octave to perform calculations on your data. I'll start by showing you how to download and install Octave, run the program, and get help if needed. Next, I'll show you how to use built-in commands to control Octave, assign values to variables, and perform calculations using mathematical operators and built-in functions, while Chapter Four demonstrates how to use external data, send your Octave results to an external file, and to document and debug your scripts.
Finally, Chapter Five demonstrates how to plot your data using the OpenGL library, which is installed along with Octave. All of these methods provide the power and flexibility you need to make good decisions for your company.
