MTN Issue 10, Fall 1993
Extended Functionality (Maple V Release 2)
- Tips for Maple Users
- This is the first article of a column that will be regularly
included in the MTN. It contains discussions of plotting, data
structure transformations using
select, and an overview of
simplifications in Maple.
- Recipes for Solving Broad Classes of Definite Integrals
T.C. Scott, Y.B. Band, K.O. Geddes,
- This is brief survey of some of Maple's capabilities for providing
exact analytical solutions to definite integrals. This includes a few
examples of how and where such integrals appear in science and
- A Package for Numerical Approximation
- Written as a Maple worksheet, this article presents examples
numapprox package which contains various
procedures for developing numerical approximations of functions.
- Binomial Sums and Identities
- This is an expository article on binomial sums and their
identities. The article includes some new results about Apery numbers
and an application of the
- Thermodynamics with Maple: I, Equations of State
R.Taylor, M.B. Monagan
- This is an educational article in the area of thermodynamics aimed
at the undergraduate curriculum.
- Construction of Stochastic Numerical Schemes through Maple
P.E. Kloeden, W.D. Scott
- For those interested in stochastic processes, this article shows
how Maple can play a role in the construction of useful numerical
- Computing one million digits of sqrt(2)
X. Gourdon, B. Salvy
- This article considers the problem of how to compute the square
root of an integer to very high precision. The Maple implementation
uses a different Newton iteration than the "usual" one and uses
Karatsuba's algorithm for fast integer multiplication.
- A Model for an HIV Infection
- Although, the MTN had biology-related articles in previous issues,
this would certainly qualify as the Maple Technical Newsletter's first
article in the area of Medicine. In this case, the article is
focussed on the HIV infection.
- Application of Maple in Optimal Control Systems Design
G.P. Porciello, T. Lee
- Partially written as an educationally-oriented Maple worksheet, this
article presents another application of Maple to engineering, namely
on the topic of optimal control systems design and analysis.
- Formula Manipulation using Maple
- The last article of this issue presents some useful tools in the
"art" of formula manipulation.
