=== Octave overview===
 
 
 
As usual, and meant for the new comers, there was an overview of GNU Octave.
 
This is an ongoing collaborative effort initiated by Jordi at OctConf 2012,
 
it was modified and extended by Carlo who presented it in varios occations (including
 
[http://femtec2013.femhub.com/ FEMTEC2013]).

=== Octave in numerical methods courses ===
 
Paola Gervasio gave a presentation about how she and her colleagues ([http://mox.polimi.it/qs/ authors of several books])use Octave in their courses at the university. You cansee exmaples used for the classes and some interesting pedagogic techniques in the slides.
 
[http://www.ing.unibs.it/~gervasio/ Contact her] if you have questions!

=== NCLab ===
 
Martin Novak and Martin Balek, from [http://www.nclab.com NCLab], showcased their product and commented in the technology their are develping to have a fully functional GNU Octave server online. We hope this guys manage to earn they coins respecting the Free software community. Good luck!

=== LTFAT and Octave ===
 
Realtime sound processing with GNU Octave? It seems that the Czech-Danish team of [http://ltfat.sourceforge.net/ LTFAT] formed by Zdenek Prusa and Peter L. Søndergaard believes it is possible and are working towards it. We will hear (pun!) a lot from them in the coming months.
 
 
 
Apart from that, LTFAT provides an implementation of wavelets for GNU Octave.

=== JIT Compiler ===
 
L Y.H., the student who will follow up the work of Max Brister, presented the difficulties with changes in LLVM and the JIT compiler for Octave.
 
Apparently, a re-structuring of this part of Octave is imminent.

=== New sparse matrix format for Octave ===
 
[http://librsb.sourceforge.net/ Michele Martone]
 
presented his (soon to be released) Octave package for sparse matrices "sparsersb".
 
The package enables Octave users to transparently use the "librsb"
 
multithreaded sparse matrix library from Octave, gaining performance
 
in the application of sparse matrix-vector multiplication operations on
 
large matrices (e.g.: when applying iterative methods).
 
Early testing efforts are very welcome.
 
Code and information is already available on [http://librsb.sourceforge.net] .

=== GSoC project: Incomplete factorization ===
 
 
 
In future releases incomplete [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Incomplete_LU_factorization LU-] and [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Incomplete_Cholesky_factorization Cholesky-]factorizations will be part of Octave. In a short presentation one of this years Google Summer of Code students [[User:Siko1056|Kai T. Ohlhus]] talked about the project progress.

=== Spectral Variational Integrators ===

=== New sparse matrices for Octave ===
This project may take off with the acceptance of Octave into the ESA summer of code in Space. Very interestign for people working in Mechanics and Control.

[http://librsb.sourceforge.net/ Michele Martone] presented his (future) Octave package for sparse matrix using recursive blocks (quad-tree blockification of matrices). He is very willing to collaborate with any development that could use his code.
