MATHEMATICS, SIMULATION AND MODELLING
14 April 2011
Maplesoft has announced a substantial new release of its flagship product, Maple, the technical computing software for mathematicians, engineers and scientists. With more than 270 new mathematical functions and more than 1,000 enhancements to existing algorithms, customers can solve more complex problems faster than previously possible.
Maple 15 offers efficient fundamental operations, sophisticated algorithms for advanced operations, and options to fully harness the power of multi-core computers. The company states that the new software can compute symbolic solutions to differential equations that no other system can handle, and solves 96 per cent of the benchmark standard for differential equations, putting it far ahead of the nearest competitor.
With Maple 15, users can work effectively with large datasets and create more compelling interactive applications using the new data table. With the new variable manager, they can gain greater control over their Maple sessions, quickly assessing the state of their computations. Customers can also take advantage of the interactive Clickable Math tools, including more than 40 new mini-demonstrations for exploring and illustrating common mathematical concepts.
