Dear Brien,

To my knowledge, there is no such list.  The use cases are the same as matlab's.  There is a strong argument for employing octave given its open source availability.  In particular when farming out large problems across machines.  See the links below for some guidance.

an example for parallel work

Kindly recognise that given the gnu ethos of octave, proprietary email footers well, you know.
I would suggest using a personal email and cc your work account if need be.

Hope the above is helpful to you.

I am a researcher at RAND, which is a private, non-profit and non-partisan think-tank. I primarily conduct national security research for the U.S. government.


I recently tried Octave again after not having used it in years and I am VERY impressed with it. I would like to have it installed elsewhere in our facility so that we can expand the use for government work. In order to do that, I need to get government approval to install it.


Do you have a list of government users of Octave? Are you aware of any examples of organizations using Octave on classified computers? Any information you can provide me about U.S. government related uses may help me to obtain approval.


Thank you in advance,
