Upgrade to Maple 2018

Just Tell Me About the Math

Fundamentally, Maple is a math tool, and all the fancy interface improvements in the world won't matter if the math is not there. Every release represents an expansion of the depth and breadth of Maple's mathematical power. This article lists just three of the many new and improved areas of mathematics. It's worth noting that every release also includes on-going work on the fundamentals, like polynomial system solving, integration, simplification, performance, and much more.

Maple 2018: Computational Geometry

Maple 2018 contains a new Computational Geometry package, which applies computational methods to polygons and clouds of points. Computational geometry problems occur in many applications involving points in two- or higher-dimensional spaces, such as feature recognition, predicting vapor-liquid phase diagrams, delineating closely related regions for scattered data, and more.

Maple 2017: Partial Differential Equations

Maple is the world leader in finding symbolic, closed-form solutions to differential and partial differential equations. Every year, Maple pushes the frontiers with new methods that can tackle new classes of problems. In Maple 2017, there was particular emphasis on solving PDEs with boundary conditions, with the introduction of several new algorithms that allow Maple to find analytic solutions for many more of these problems.

(Maple 2018 includes even more advancements in PDEs and DEs, too.)

Maple 2016: Number Theory

The completely rewritten Number Theory package introduced in Maple 2016 provides a comprehensive coverage of topics from number theory, including working with primes, lattices, integral bases, modular operations, cyclotomic polynomials, and much more. The new package is easier to learn and use, and many of its operations are now available from the context-sensitive menus.
