The first update to the Maple 2018 Physics, Differential Equations and Mathematical Functions packages is available. As has been the case since 2013, this update contains fixes, enhancements to existing functionality, and new developments in the three areas.
The webpage for these updates will continue being the Maplesoft R&D Physics webpage. Starting with Maple 2018, however, this update is also available from the MapleCloud.
To install the update: open Maple and click the Cloud icon (upper-right corner), select "Packages" and search for "Physics Updates". Then, in the corresponding "Actions" column, click the third icon (install pop-up).
NOTE May/1: the "Updates" icon of the MapleCloud toolbar (that opens when you click the upper-right icon within a Maple document / worksheet), now works fine, after having installed the Physics Updates version 32 or higher.
These first updates include:
- New Physics functionality regarding Tensor Products of Quantum States; and Coherent States.
- Updates to pdsolve regarding PDE & Boundary Conditions (exact solutions);
- A change in notation: d_(x), the differential of a coordinate in the Physics package, is now displayed as shown in this Mapleprimes post.
