Maplesoft has released the latest version of its flagship product, Maple, the technical computing software for engineers, mathematicians and scientists. With Maple 17, Maplesoft introduces more computation tools and a large collection of enhancements dedicated to supporting the creation of applications.
Maplesoft says Maple 17 offers numerous advancements in a variety of branches of technical computation that push the frontiers of knowledge and Maple’s capabilities. New functionality includes ground-breaking achievements in solving a whole new class of differential equations, major advancements in solving systems of equations, new signal processing tools, expanded support for physics, statistics, dynamic systems, and more.
Performance has also been enhanced with improvements to frequently called routines and algorithms as well as in the low-level infrastructure of memory management.
One example is a new memory manager, which takes advantages of multiple processors to allow computations to run 10 per cent faster on average, with memory-intensive computations running up to 50 per cent faster.
