Extended Functionality (Maple V Release 3)
- Maple V Release 3
- A brief summary of the additional features available
in the newest release of Maple.
- Tips for Maple Users
- Discussions of
unapply, scoping rules, programming
operators, and zero recognition and simplification in Maple.
- Simplification and the
R. Corless, M.B. Monagan
- This is a description of Maple's
assume facility. It
includes examples of how
assume is used to solve problems
and how it is integrated into Maple. It also discusses the
limitations of this facility and proposes how Maple should evolve to a
"lastproviso" model of computation.
- Random Number Generation
Z.A. Karian, R. Goyal
- This is a functionality article in the area of random number
generation which provides performance figures for the
Maple in Research
- Gaia: A Package for the Random
Generation of Combinatorial Structures
- This is an expository article on a Maple implementation called
Gaia which is a package that helps count and draw random
combinatorial structures of various sorts.
- Kinematic and Power-Flow Analysis of Epicyclic Gear Drives
N.P. Belfiore, E. Pennestri, R. Sinatra
- In the area of mechanical enginnering, this article presents a
Maple-based approach to gear analysis which is relatively unique in
mechanical design and could be of value to others in the field. Its
two unique contributions are in the areas of graph-theoretic analysis
of mechanical networks, and symbolic approaches to mechanical
- On Solving the McConnell Equations in Biochemistry
J. Grotendorst, P. Jansen, S.M. Schoberth
- This article presents an application in the area of Nuclear
Magnetic Resonance (NMR) spectroscopy. It demonstrates various ways of
how the McConnell equations can be solved analytically using Maple and
verifies solutions found in the literature. It also indicates
computation techniques of mixed symbolic-numeric type for the
determination of the formal parameters involved in the solutions.
- Modeling Snow Transport, An Application of Maple
- This article describes the application of Maple to a problem
Maple in Education
- Maple in Education - Part II
T.C. Scott, M.B. Monagan, R. Pavelle, D. Redfern
- This article presents some educational examples in Physics,
Chemistry and Engineering prepared on worksheets using Maple. This
article is a sequel to "Maple in Education" as presented in
of this newsletter and is co-authored with M.B. Monagan, R. Pavelle
and D. Redfern.
- A Separable Differential Equation: New Insights
- This is a Maple worksheet which presents some simple applications
of Maple to solving ordinary differential equations.
- Thermodynamics with Maple V: II, Phase Equilibria in
- This is a readable article in the area of thermodynamics which
shows how Maple can be used to perform some simple phase equilibrium
calculations, create phase diagrams and interpret data. Its contents
could be also be useful to workers using Graph Theory in other areas.
