This is my question how to solve Plot a primitive of sin(x^3) in octave. I don't know if you could help me. Thank you very much.

I haven't used Octave, but I assume you would need to know how to (a) set up the numerical integration of sin(x^3) (from, say, 0 to x) as a function of x, and then (b) plot the values produced by that function. Have you used Octave before or read its documentation?

First of all thank you very much skipjack. I have read some documentation about Octave and I tried out some easy examples, I don't think it would be a problem to "write" it on it. My doubt is about what process should I follow inside octave to get it. I'm not sure if I have explained it clearly; my English isn't as good as it should be, sorry!

Check out this link: http://www.gnu.org/software/octave/d...tegration.html to get started with the process of numerical integration.
