Timing Timing: 10:00 AM to 3:00 PM 

This is a hands on workshop intended to get people introduced to the Basic Linux working environment. The second part of the workshop will be a hands on session on working and using GNU/Octave to solve mathematics/physics problems and model the same using GNU/Octave. During the session participants will be introduced to various commands (like: help, doc, lookfor, diary etc) while developing the model.

Expected Audience: (Max 30 participants)
Participants are expected to be conversant with basic trigonometry, basic physics, matrices. (This is not a compulsary requirement)
