http://www.maplesoft.com/applications/view.aspx?SID=4386&ref=Feed
The new ScientificErrorAnalysis package provides representation and construction of numerical quantities that have a value and associated error, which is a measure of the degree of precision to which the quantity's value is known. Given the errors of base quantities, you can automatically compute the errors of quantities derived from them, as well as correlations and covariances between them.<img src="/view.aspx?si=4386//applications/images/app_image_blank_lg.jpg" alt="The Scientific Error Analysis Package" align="left"/>The new ScientificErrorAnalysis package provides representation and construction of numerical quantities that have a value and associated error, which is a measure of the degree of precision to which the quantity's value is known.

http://www.maplesoft.com/applications/view.aspx?SID=4260&ref=Feed
The new ScientificConstants package in Maple 8 provides the values, symbols, uncertainty and units of over 13,000 physical constants. Never again do you have to search the internet or grab a reference book to look up such values. This extensive package gives you access to the basic chemical properties of any element or isotope from the Periodic Table. Also available are 70 physical constants, such as Planck's constant, the Newtonian constant of gravitation, magnetic flux quantum, and speed of light in a vacuum. If a specific physical constant that you need is not included, simply add the constants you commonly use to Maple's database. This flexible package also allows you to modify properties or change the system associated with a constant. The ScientificConstants package in conjunction with the comprehensive Units package introduced in Maple 7 together provide valuable tools for scientists and engineers.<img src="/view.aspx?si=4260//applications/images/app_image_blank_lg.jpg" alt="The ScientificConstants Package" align="left"/>The new ScientificConstants package in Maple 8 provides the values, symbols, uncertainty and units of over 13,000 physical constants.

The Units package in Maple 7 can incorporate units in solutions to problems involving addition, multiplication and division of physical quantities. However, the Units package also keeps track of units throughout computations involving derivatives, integrals and differential equations. In this application, we show you how. Examples will include computing the speed of projectiles and analysing a simple harmonic oscillator.<img src="/view.aspx?si=4138//applications/images/app_image_blank_lg.jpg" alt="Units and dimensions in problems of calculus and ODEs" align="left"/>The Units package in Maple 7 can incorporate units in solutions to problems involving addition, multiplication and division of physical quantities.

http://www.maplesoft.com/applications/view.aspx?SID=4133&ref=Feed
Reducing the number of variables in an experiment reduces the number of trials necessary to establish the relationship between variables. Dimensional analysis is used to replace an equation relating n variables with an equation relating a complete set of n-r dimensionless products. The behavior of a prototype can be predicted from the behavior of its model provided the dimensionless products of the prototype are equal in value to those of the model.<img src="/view.aspx?si=4133//applications/images/app_image_blank_lg.jpg" alt="Generating Sets of Dimensionless Products" align="left"/>Reducing the number of variables in an experiment reduces the number of trials necessary to establish the relationship between variables.

http://www.maplesoft.com/applications/view.aspx?SID=4036&ref=Feed
Maple provides the most comprehensive package in the software industry for managing units and dimensions. Problems in science and engineering can now be fully managed with appropriate dimensions in any modern unit system (and even some historical systems!), including MKS, FPS, CGS, Atomic and more. Over 500 standard units are recognized by Maple's Units package. A convenient dialog box located in the Edit menu converts quantities between unit systems automatically.
The Units package offers far more than simple conversions between units of various systems. It preserves the user's chosen units throughout complex computations. It knows the base dimensions of all standard quantities measured in science and engineering. Users also have the option to create their own units and dimensions.<img src="/view.aspx?si=4036//applications/images/app_image_blank_lg.jpg" alt="Units and Dimensional Management in Maple" align="left"/>Maple provides the most comprehensive package in the software industry for managing units and dimensions.
