Maplesoft Releases Maple 16
May 9, 2012
Desktop Engineering
Maplesoft recently announced version 16 of Maple, its flagship technical computing system for mathematicians, engineers, scientists, and academia. Calling this a major release, Maplesoft says that Maple 16 has been extended with more than 4,500 additions and improvements across the entire product, including areas such as mathematical algorithms, visualization, programming language, engineering tools, documentation, education features, and authoring tools.
Math for Engineers: A look at Mathcad Prime 2.0 and Maple 16
April 17, 2012
Design World
“Maple 16 benefits from major improvements in computational efficiency, in the areas of core polynomial operations, numeric differential equation solving, and linear algebra computations. It features better scalability on multi-core computers. The Maple programming language has been enhanced to support light-weight objects, for enhanced object-oriented programming ... Maple 16 is a fine choice as a tool for doing serious engineering math.”
Mathematica 8 and Maple 15
November 30, 2011
IEEE Spectrum magazine
When speaking to the developers at Maple, I found them particularly proud of the program's new support for multicore processers, parallel programming for a cluster of local computers, and multithread computing, each of which can dramatically speed up large calculations. For example, they described problems involving sparse linear programming that were unfeasible in earlier versions but can be easily calculated in Maple 15.
Maplesoft Schools Students With iPad App

Design News
Maplesoft is stocking the app with a collection of interactive calculators and conceptual explorations, the idea being that the iPad's immersive UI lets students more readily explore mathematical objects using finger swipes and gestures. "Using the finger to explore as opposed to having to work with a keyboard as an intermediary works well for math," Laurent Bernardin, Maplesoft's chief scientist and executive vice president, told Design News.

In his popular blog in Desktop Engineering, Kenneth Wong takes a deeper look at the Maple Player for iPad. He says the player lets you play equations and mathematical expressions as though they were real-time animations.
MapleSim Drives Fuel-Efficient Vehicle Design
October 3, 2011
Design News
MapleSim Driveline Component Library is a collection of packaged components that can help driveline engineering teams more easily create physical models and incorporate empirical data to optimize designs and improve overall vehicle fuel efficiency... The new library, an add-on to MapleSim, covers all of the stages in the powertrain, from the engine to the differential, wheels, and road loads in addition to vehicle dynamics, according to Paul Goossens, Maplesoft's vice president for application engineering. Having a physical modeling and simulation tool tailored for driveline applications is increasingly important to automotive suppliers as they struggle to improve the fuel efficiency of their offerings, Goossens told us.
MapleSim 5: Symbolic Computation for Physical Modeling and Simulation
September 27, 2011
A detailed and thorough review of MapleSim 5 appeared this week. Author Jeff Rowe writes, “in the world of parametric mathematical modeling, the tandem combination of flagship products from Maplesoft – Maple 15 and MapleSim 5 – create a bellwether environment for learning and applying this important engineering technology set.”
You’ll be Magnetically Attracted to MapleSim 5
September 26, 2011
Design Product News
Bill Fane reviews MapleSim 5 and describes why one would be “magnetically attracted” to this product. Also featuring the MapleSim video, the review illustrates how MapleSim helps “take randomness and uncertainty out of designs.”
Maple 15: How Do They Do It?
August 24, 2011
Scientific Computing
Scientific Computing has just published a review of Maple 15. Asking the question, “how do they do it”, reviewer John Wass emphasises there are over 270 new mathematical questions and over 1000 enhancement to existing algorithms in Maple 15. He concludes that “although there are many packages that can do math well, this one distinguishes itself by the power of its support functions so as not to overwhelm the new user while fully supporting the experienced mathematician.”
Maple and MapleSim Pack a 1-2 Punch

Desktop Engineering
Peter Varhol reviews Maple and MapleSim for Desktop Engineering and concludes that “engineers seeking better designs through mathematical analysis and simulation can look to Maple and MapleSim as possible solutions.” Read on for other good things he has to say!
Maple 15
July 30, 2011
Scientific Computing World
Writing for Scientific Computing, Felix Grant reviews Maple 15. He calls it “a package which remains a front runner in an ever-refining CAS market, even at the single interactive user level and more so as advantages of scale kick in. At the same time, none of the value for hands-on exploratory or educational use is lost; if anything, it draws on the same improvements to become better.”
