NEWEST VERSION OF MAPLESOFT’S FLAGSHIP PRODUCT DRAMATICALLY IMPROVES USER EXPERIENCE
Maple 11 is the Ideal Tool for Engineers and Scientists to Streamline and Increase Quality of Analytical Work
WATERLOO, CANADA, January 8, 2007 — Maplesoft™, the leading provider of high-performance software tools for engineering, science and mathematics, announced a major release of Maple™, the company’s flagship product. Maple 11 features enhancements to its smart document interface, strong computation engine, and connectivity capabilities. The result is a product that provides users the necessary technology to reduce error and dramatically increase analytical productivity.
With Maple 11, the company is advancing the revolutionary technical document interface technology it introduced two years ago. The new release combines the world’s most powerful mathematical computation engine with an intuitive user-interface that eliminates the learning curve so common with other mathematical software. Its smart document environment automatically captures all technical knowledge in an electronic form that seamlessly integrates calculations, explanatory text and math, graphics, images and sound, and more. These concise live documents can be reused or shared across the organization.
“We initiated a radical change in the industry when we launched Maple 10 with its superior technical document and knowledge sharing capabilities”, said Maplesoft CEO Jim Cooper. “It changed the way people worked and Maple 11 represents another important leap forward in this direction. It is the leading tool for engineers and scientists to streamline and increase the quality of their analytical work. It also represents Maplesoft’s commitment to transforming the way our customers use technology.”
Maple 11 is supported by an extensive range of products for various industrial applications including automotive, aerospace, electronics, energy and finance. Companion products include automatic model generation, optimal design tools, intelligent control design, reference e-books, and more.
Does anyone know how to work out the largest triangle that can be enclosed within an ellipse (both in 2D)?
For any triangle,
and a,b,c are the length of the sides.
Say the ellipse is equation 1/9*x^2+1/4*y^2 = 1
hence y: = -2/3*(-x^2+9)^(1/2) or +2/3*(-x^2+9)^(1/2)
Given three points (x1,y1), (x2,y2), (x3,y3)
Eg distance from (-x1,-y) to (-x2,y)
)], [-x2, subs(x=-x2, +2/3*(-x^2+9)^(1/2))]);
(note the sign of y)
and so forth for b and c.
there has to be a more eloquent (calculus) way.
The appearance of this thread has degraded over the years, but most all post about the MRB constant can be found by entering "MRB constant" into the search box.

I'm currently in first year calculus, so my knowledge is limited, please forgive me. I've been given an assignment, and a part of it has me rather stumped (the teacher likes to give out questions before she teaches you how to do them).
We are given 3 single-variable functions (domain is 0 <= x <= 40):
h1 := x-> -5 * ( 1 - x^2 / 1600 ) * sin ( ( Pi * x ) / 1600 * ( x / 2 - 3 ) * ( x / 2 - 20 ) )^2;
h2 := x-> -5 * ( 1 - x^2 / 1600 ) * sin ( ( Pi * x ) / 1600 * ( x / 2 - 6 ) * ( x / 2 - 20 ) )^2;
h3 := x-> -5 * ( 1 - x^2 / 1600 ) * sin ( ( Pi * x ) / 1600 * ( x / 2 - 9 ) * ( x / 2 - 20 ) )^2;
Hi, I have a very problematic question.
I have a Matrix (100 x 100) that contains complex numbers express as symbols. The numbers derive from several operations.
I want evaluate the Real part of the complex numbers for successive calculus but the software show a memory problem.
How can I do?
I have a P4 with 2GB of memory.
I use the function: map(Re,matrix);
I am new to Maple and I am looking for these examples and am having trouble. Could someone lead me in the right direction or tell me which Maple books to purchase? example: precalculus or calculus or one of the new user guide books. I can't seem to find much on "The Square Root Property" and factoring or Solvng Equations by completing the Square, Quadratic Formula and Discriminant. I know I basically need to just play with the applications but know there must be information somewhere.
It would be very nice if Maple could handle true infinite sequences. In addition to basic operations performed elementwise between two (or more) sequences, it should be possible to:
- plot a sequence
- determine if the sequence converges
Note that the seq command (and the list datatype) can be used only for FINITE sequences. Also, the current limit command assumes the independent variable is continuous - not discrete.
Here's a simple example of what I would like to be able to do:
> S := Seq( sin(n*Pi), n=1..infinity );
> plot( S, view=[1..100,DEFAULT] );
> L := Limit( S, n, type='Sequence' );

I am a Masters student, engaged in research with a small applied maths component, nothing more complex than matrix calculus.
I am currently using Scilab, but would like to get a student version of one of the following:
Why should I choose Maple? I'm not looking for marketing BS - I can get that off the websites, but I am looking for genuine opinions and facts from people who have more experience than me with these packagaes.
When I plot y = (x^2 + 5x + 6)/(x^2 - 4)... where's the hole? That is, Maple provides the vertical asymptote when using the Student Tools-Precalculus library but why not the hole? Thanks, C.
Maplets for Calculus is a collection of maplets designed to help students practice their calculus
problem-solving skills and to assist instructors in providing effective classroom demonstrations (including 2- and 3-D visualization -- even animation). The maplets cover all major topics in single-variable calculus - limits, derivatives, integrals, differential equations, sequences, series, and polar coordinates. Some of the maplets help to build intuition and some provide practice with routine computational techniques.
An individual license for Maplets for Calculus is available through the MapleConnect
. Lab/Classroom bundles and site licenses are also available. The complete list of maplets and sample videos may be seen at
I teach some mathematics subjects to students studying a computer science course. Most of these students dislike maths (I'm Australian, hence "maths" instead of "math"), and are doing it only because it's a core subject in their first year. I should also point out that many of my students have a very weak maths background, and so find the maths that I teach (which over a year covers logic and boolean algebra, some combinatorics, and linear algebra and calculus) very difficult and demanding, and often simply dull.
I've been using Maple for about four or five years now; each week the students work through a sheet of Maple exercises (which are all marked) designed to enhance their learning. But here's the thing - the students actually don't like Maple! They would much rather spend that hour having a standard tutorial, working through pencil-and-paper problems, than in a computer lab with Maple. So I need to change my approach; to somehow make Maple more central, more enjoyable, and more "enhancing" than I've been doing up to now.
A colleague has been frustrated by the apparent limitations to Maple's abilities to "solve" inequalities. This does appear to be something that should - and could - be improved with a little effort.
The typical problem under consideration is the epsilon-delta definition of limit. Ideally, it would be nice to execute a command such as
> solve( abs( f-L ) < epsilon, x );
and receive an answer in terms of intervals.
Does anyone have advice for content in a maple tutorial for calculus students and any math students for that matter? I am doing a tutorial to help students avoid the fear of Maple and try to help them to avoid common mistakes. Any suggestions would be great!
I suppose I'll jump in to the world of the blog with a question: What do you consider to be a solid and accessible introductory textbook to calculus?
By Solid I mean: No gaps in coverage that leave the reader at a disadvantage because of unclear text and examples or outright missed topics.
By Accessible I mean: Written so the average student can expect to understand the concepts directly or with a small amount of help outside the classroom.
