http://www.maplesoft.com/applications/view.aspx?SID=136471&ref=Feed
In the early 90s, Joe Ecker (Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute) provided a Maple solution to the problem of determining for a given function, which expansion point in a specified interval yielded the best quadratic Taylor polynomial approximation, where "best" was measured by the L<sub>2</sub>-norm. This article applies Ecker's approach to the function <em>f(x)</em> = sinh<em>(x)</em> – <em>x e<sub>-3x</sub>,</em> -1 ≤ <em>x</em> ≤ 3, then goes on to find other approximating quadratic polynomials.<img src="/view.aspx?si=136471/image.jpg" alt="Classroom Tips and Techniques: Best Taylor-Polynomial Approximations" align="left"/>In the early 90s, Joe Ecker (Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute) provided a Maple solution to the problem of determining for a given function, which expansion point in a specified interval yielded the best quadratic Taylor polynomial approximation, where "best" was measured by the L<sub>2</sub>-norm.

http://www.maplesoft.com/applications/view.aspx?SID=35301&ref=Feed
<p>On observe d'abord la divergence du polynôme de Lagrange interpolant la fonction densité de probabilité de la loi de Cauchy lorsque la <strong>subdivision est équirépartie</strong> sur [-1;1]. C'est le <u>phénomène de Runge</u>.<br />
<br />
On observe ensuite qu'en choisissant une <strong>subdivision de Chebychev</strong> le phénomène de divergence au voisinage des bornes disparait.<br />
<br />
Cette activité a été réalisé dans le cadre de la préparation à l'agrégation interne de mathématiques de Rennes le 10 Mars 2010.<br />
Les nouveaux programmes du concours incitent à proposer des exercices utilisant les TICE. Il semble difficile de proposer une preuve convaincante du phénomène de Runge pour une épreuve orale. Ceci justifie de ne s'en tenir qu'à la seule observation.</p><img src="/view.aspx?si=35301/thumb.jpg" alt="Phénomène de Runge - subdivision de Chebychev" align="left"/><p>On observe d'abord la divergence du polynôme de Lagrange interpolant la fonction densité de probabilité de la loi de Cauchy lorsque la <strong>subdivision est équirépartie</strong> sur [-1;1].

http://www.maplesoft.com/applications/view.aspx?SID=4869&ref=Feed
By using complex numbers to represent points in the plane, and the concept of iterated function system, we efficiently describe fractal sets of any dimension from 0 to 2 and continuous curves that pass through them. Maple's animation feature allows us to make "movies" that show the transition through different dimensions.<img src="/view.aspx?si=4869/thumb.png" alt="Fractal Dimension and Space-Filling Curves (with iterated function systems)" align="left"/>By using complex numbers to represent points in the plane, and the concept of iterated function system, we efficiently describe fractal sets of any dimension from 0 to 2 and continuous curves that pass through them.

http://www.maplesoft.com/applications/view.aspx?SID=4269&ref=Feed
The new VariationalCalculus package in Maple 8 provides routines for solving problems in the calculus of variations, which studies nature's most "efficient" curves and surfaces. Examples include: find the shortest path between two points on a 3-D surface, shape a ramp between two heights such that a ball rolling down it reaches the bottom in minimum time, and find the shape of a soap film having minimum surface area spanning a given wire frame.
Such problems can often be solved with the Euler-Lagrange equation, which generalizes the Lagrange Multiplier Theorem. The Euler-Lagrange equation is easy to write down in general but notoriously difficult to write down and solve for most practical problems. The VariationalCalculus package automates the construction and analysis of the Euler-Lagrange equation.<img src="/view.aspx?si=4269//applications/images/app_image_blank_lg.jpg" alt="The VariationalCalculus Package" align="left"/>The new VariationalCalculus package in Maple 8 provides routines for solving problems in the calculus of variations, which studies nature's most "efficient" curves and surfaces.

http://www.maplesoft.com/applications/view.aspx?SID=4143&ref=Feed
This package is meant to give a front end package to Maple's already existing interval arithmetic tools, including the interval object and the command . It over-rides the operations +, -, *, /, ^, and the functions and and the various trigonometric, hyprbolic and their inverse functions and the exponential and logrithmic functions. It solves two problems: the need to call evalr on the result of operations, and it solves the problem of cancelation of equal objects.
