The GAUSS Mathematical and Statistical System is a programming environment similar to MATLAB, but with greater emphasis on data analysis and data modeling. It is used primarily in the disciplines of economics and engineering.
Highlights: Data analysis and Statistics package.
GAUSS is licensed software and is available on the Katana Cluster with the current version being 11.0.11. Currently, 4 instances may be run simultaneously.
There is one user executable program called tgauss. It provides a command-line interface to the language interpreter, debugger, and help system.
To start an interactive session, type:
To run a GAUSS program called “prog” in your current directory, type:
katana% tgauss -b prog
To run the above program in the p4-long batch queue, type:
katana% bsub -q p4-long tgauss -b prog
Note: GAUSS is NOT multi-threaded so GAUSS jobs should only be submitted to the single processor batch queues.
The GAUSS manuals are available in pdf form in /usr/local/gauss/doc. The manuals and additional information can be found at the vendor’s website: www.aptech.com.
