New Maple 2016 offers advanced problem-solving for math, science, engineering
Release enhancements include mathematical algorithms, interactive application development, usability
Waterloo - Maplesoft announced a major new release of its flagship product, Maple, the mathematical software that makes it extremely easy to analyze, explore, visualize, and solve math problems. With Maple 2016, Maplesoft offers important new abilities to educators, researchers, scientists, and engineers that allow them to solve more problems, more easily, than ever before.
Maple 2016 includes enhancements through the entire product. It solves more mathematical problems from differential equations, statistics, graph theory, and many other mathematical domains. It also provides new Clickable Math options for performing operations at the click of a button, as well as other usability enhancements throughout the product.
Some of the many new tasks that can be performed with Maple 2016 include:
• Organizing projects and Maple applications using the new Maple Workbook, so all related documents and data files are kept together and dependencies are automatically maintained when sharing
• Taking advantage of flexible and intuitive data frames to organize and analyze real-world data
• Performing calculations with thermophysical properties of pure fluids, humid air and mixtures, generating customized psychrometric charts, and more
• Using Clickable Math to perform new operations, from writing fractions as repeating decimals, to computing cross products and dot products, or even converting Maple code to the Julia programming language
• Searching through over 900 exact solutions to Einstein’s field equations for metrics with particular properties, and using these solution metrics and automatically derived related information in your general relatively computations
• Helping students explore concepts such as the Sieve of Eratosthenes, tessellations, and the area of a circle, using new interactive Math Apps
In addition, Maple 2016 provides significant enhancements in the area of application development, including expanded functionality in the one-step application building tool, Explore, and new program analysis tools that analyze code to detect barriers to safe parallelization and help resolve them.
“Maple is the ideal tool for anyone who touches math, and this version comes with enhancements for interactive problem solving, concept exploration, and application development,” says Dr. Laurent Bernardin, Executive Vice-President and Chief Scientist at Maplesoft. “Maple 2016 helps customers do more, faster, in a wide variety of fields, including advanced mathematics, physics, thermophysical engineering, and data science. With the power and flexibility of the new features, Maple users can enlighten their students, become more productive in their research, and meet their goals faster.”
Maple is available in several languages including French, Simplified Chinese, and Brazilian Portuguese. A Japanese version of Maple 2016 will be available in a few weeks.
