```
x = 1:10;
y = sin(x);
plot(x, y);
```

What are the basic data types in GNU Octave?

The basic data types in GNU Octave are: scalar, matrix, complex, string, structure, cell, and function handle.

How would you create a matrix in GNU Octave?

You can create a matrix in GNU Octave using the syntax: A = [1, 2, 3; 4, 5, 6; 7, 8, 9]; This creates a 3x3 matrix.

What is the purpose of the 'end' keyword in GNU Octave?

The 'end' keyword in GNU Octave is used to indicate the end of a block of code such as a loop, conditional statement, or function.

How would you write a function in GNU Octave?

A function in GNU Octave can be written as follows: function y = myFunction(x) y = x^2; end; This function takes an input x and returns the square of x.

What is the difference between the '==' and '=' operators in GNU Octave?

'==' is a comparison operator that checks if two values are equal, while '=' is an assignment operator that assigns a value to a variable.

Does the candidate demonstrate a strong understanding of GNU Octave?

Has the candidate shown experience with similar programming languages like MATLAB?

Is the candidate able to solve problems and debug code effectively?

Does the candidate have experience with numerical analysis and data visualization?

How would you plot a graph in GNU Octave?

You can plot a graph in GNU Octave using the plot function. For example: x = 0:0.1:10; y = sin(x); plot(x, y); This plots the sine function from 0 to 10.

What are cell arrays in GNU Octave and how are they different from regular arrays?

Cell arrays in GNU Octave are data types that can hold different types of data in different cells. Regular arrays can only hold one type of data. You can create a cell array using the cell function or by using curly braces {}.

How would you handle exceptions in GNU Octave?

You can handle exceptions in GNU Octave using the try-catch statement. The code in the 'try' block is executed, and if an error occurs, the code in the 'catch' block is executed.

What is the difference between scripts and functions in GNU Octave?

Scripts in GNU Octave are a type of m-file that runs in the current workspace and can affect the variables in that workspace. Functions, on the other hand, have their own workspace and can't affect the variables in the calling workspace unless they are output arguments.

How would you perform matrix multiplication in GNU Octave?

You can perform matrix multiplication in GNU Octave using the '*' operator. For example, if A and B are matrices, then A*B performs matrix multiplication.

What does the following Octave code do?

```
x = 1:10;
y = sin(x);
plot(x, y);
```

This code generates a sine wave. It first creates a vector 'x' with values from 1 to 10. Then it calculates the sine of each value in 'x' and stores the results in 'y'. Finally, it plots 'y' against 'x', creating a sine wave.

What will be the output of the following Octave code?

```
A = [1, 2, 3; 4, 5, 6; 7, 8, 9];
B = A(2, :);
```

The output will be a row vector B = [4, 5, 6]. The code extracts the second row from the matrix 'A' and assigns it to 'B'.

What does the following Octave code do?

```
A = [1, 2, 3; 4, 5, 6; 7, 8, 9];
B = A(:, end:-1:1);
```

This code reverses the order of the columns in the matrix 'A'. The result is stored in 'B'.

What does the following Octave code do?

```
pkg load parallel;
parcellfun(4, @sin, 1:10);
```

This code calculates the sine of numbers from 1 to 10 in parallel using 4 workers. The 'parcellfun' function applies the 'sin' function to each element of the input array in parallel.

What are the different ways to index a matrix in GNU Octave?

In GNU Octave, you can index a matrix using parentheses and the indices of the element you want to access. You can also use logical indexing, where you provide a logical array of the same size as the matrix, and Octave returns the elements where the logical array is true.

How would you implement a recursive function in GNU Octave?

A recursive function in GNU Octave can be implemented by having the function call itself within its own definition. For example, a function to compute the factorial of a number could be implemented recursively.

Describe the difference between element-wise operations and matrix operations in GNU Octave.

Element-wise operations in GNU Octave are performed on corresponding elements of the operands, while matrix operations follow the rules of linear algebra. For example, A.*B performs element-wise multiplication, while A*B performs matrix multiplication.
