excuse me if this is not the correct list to do suggestions.
It is not clear to me to send them here or in 'octave-sources'.

I want to suggest to add more function interfaces to 'octave'.
Like some other basic math functions -- f.e. 'sqrt' -- these functions
are part of the most math libraries of a C/C++ compiler.

1) 'cbrt'
   advantage:  the cube root is then calculated fast.

2) 'hypot'
   advantage: calculates 'sqrt(a^2+b^2)' with respect to overflow

Maybe there are other candidates too.



"Beweiss" fuer die These: 'Alle ungeraden Zahlen sind prim.'
3, 5, 7, 11, alle sind ungerade und prim.
9 ist ist ein irrelevanter Messfehler.
==> Bingo!  8-))))))
