What is Maple V?

Maple V is a powerful mathematical problem-solving and visualization system used world-wide in education, research, and industry. Its principal strength is its symbolic problem solving algorithms. Unlike conventional math software, which can only work with floating-point numbers, Maple V can solve problems involving formal mathematical definitions and return answers as mathematical objects. Derived from over a decade of world-class R&D and customer service, Maple V Release 4 provides all the right tools for users in education, research, and industry.

Maple is a product of the Waterloo Maple Software Corporation.
Maple supports a plethora of mathematical systems and procedures including:

  • Numerical Calculations
  • Calculus
  • Equation Solving
  • Trigonometric and Exponential/Logarithm Functions
  • Linear Algebra
  • Statistics
  • 2d and 3d Plotting
  • Animation
  • Interface with C and Fortran Programming
  • Maple is fairly easy to get started in. It can rapidly become a freehanded mathematical sketch pad for the user.
