[edit]

GNU Octave

https://www.gnu.org/software/octave/
High-level language for numerical computations

Octave is a high-level interpreted language that is specialized for numerical computations. It can be used for both linear and non-linear applications and it provides great support for visualizing results. Work may be performed both at the interactive command-line as well as via script files.

Documentation

A full description of Octave capabilities is available at http://octave.org/doc/interpreter

N.B. The Octave language is quite similar to Matlab so that most programs are easily portable. There is support for editing both in Emacs.
