Octave

Octave is an open-source high-level language for numerical computations and data visualization. Built to be compatible with MATLAB, Octave provides a tool that resembles the commercial software while being freely available for use. The open-source nature of Octave encourages collaborative work on mathematical modeling and simulation across disciplines such as physics, engineering, and economics. Python libraries can also be accessed from within Octave scripts.
