Generating random numbers efficiently
http://www.maplesoft.com/applications/view.aspx?SID=153662&ref=Feed
Generating (pseudo-)random values is a frequent task in simulations and other programs. For some situations, you want to generate some combinatorial or algebraic values, such as a list or a polynomial; in other situations, you need random numbers, from a distribution that is uniform or more complicated. In this article I'll talk about all of these situations.<img src="/view.aspx?si=153662/thumb.jpg" alt="Generating random numbers efficiently" align="left"/>Generating (pseudo-)random values is a frequent task in simulations and other programs.

Statistical computations in Maple combine the ease of working in a high-level, interactive environment with a very large and powerful set of algorithms. Large data sets can be handled efficiently with 35 built-in statistical distributions, sampling, estimations, data smoothing, hypothesis testing, and visualization algorithms. In addition, integration with the Maple symbolic engine means that you can easily specify custom distributions by combining existing distributions or simply by giving a formula for the probability or cumulative distribution function. These examples illustrate the use of the Statistics package, with emphasis on enhancements in Maple 16.<img src="/view.aspx?si=132195/thumb.jpg" alt="Statistics Enhancements in Maple 16" align="left"/>Statistical computations in Maple combine the ease of working in a high-level, interactive environment with a very large and powerful set of algorithms.

These schemes are constructed by using all the modes of operation for block ciphers so far approved by NIST (the US National Institute of Standards of Technology), namely, the five confidentiality modes: ECB, CBC, CFB, OFB and CTR, the authentication mode CMAC, and the "authenticated encryption" modes CCM and GCM/GMAC. The implementation is able to encrypt/decrypt and/or authenticate messages in several formats, including binary files, and we use it to explore the basic properties of these schemes. The implementation contains also detailed explanations of all the procedures used, including the lower level ones, and discusses both the programming and the cryptographic aspects involved.</p><img src="/view.aspx?si=6618/AES_1608.gif" alt="The Advanced Encryption Standard and its modes of operation" align="left"/><p>This is an update, labeled version 1.1, to the existing application The Advanced Encryption Standard and its modes of operation.</p>

product meets a set of target criteria, which include desired yield and concentration levels. These criteria are
determined by developing a model to accurately represent the reaction kinetics of the system. With a highly

production process.<img src="/view.aspx?si=6589/thumb.gif" alt="Quality Control of a Paint Production Process" align="left"/>Quality control in terms of paint production consists of sampling at regular intervals to ensure that the end

It shows how Maple's symbolic analytics and numerical engines can be seamlessly applied in the field of multivariate statistics. The core concept of multivariate analysis - joint distributions - are discussed in the context of multivariate Normal distribution and particular aspects of "jointness" are presented through marginal and conditional densities. Extension of multinormality into related family of joint distributions is shown on the example of multivariate Student-t distribution.<img src="/view.aspx?si=6352/thumb2.jpg" alt="Multivariate Distributions In Maple" align="left"/>The document demonstrates the extension of Maple's comprehensive Statistical package into multivariate setting.

RanLip is a toolbox for generation of nonuniform random variates from arbitrary Lipschitz-continuous distributions in Maple environment. It uses acceptance/ rejection approach, which is based on approximation of the probability density function from above with a "hat" function. RanLip provides very fast preprocessing and generation times, and yields small rejection constant. It exhibits good performance for up to five variables, and provides the user with a black box nonuniform random variate generator for a large class of distributions, in particular, multimodal distributions.<img src="/view.aspx?si=4849/ranlib.jpg" alt="RanLip - black-box non-uniform random variate generator" align="left"/>RanLip is a toolbox for generation of nonuniform random variates from arbitrary Lipschitz-continuous distributions in Maple environment.
