Student grades improve after implementation of Maple T.A. at Shanghai Second Polytechnic University
July 3, 2014
Process and Control Today
The Shanghai Second Polytechnic University noticed significant improvements in their students' grades and motivation when they implemented Maple T.A. The success that resulted was noticed by many others in the Shanghai education system.
Maple based music application featured in Mathematics of Planet Earth 2013
April 2, 2014
Desktop Scientific
Maplesoft supports the Mathematics of Planet Earth (MPE) initiative, which showcases ways in which mathematics can be used to understand geophysical, biological, artistic and human processes that are found on Earth. Kenneth Rubenstein, one of the winners of the MPE Exhibition, has used Maple to create artistic animations that bring music to life.
Maple helps engineers design propulsion systems for some of the world’s biggest ships
March 24, 2014
Connecting Industry
The shipping industry's dramatic increase in cargo over the last few decades has put a constant pressure on marine engineers to refine the performance and reliability of vessels and their systems. MAN Diesel & Turbo, a marine propulsion company in Germany, has been using Maple to keep produce efficient and dependable propellers while keeping costs down.
Active tilting system modeled for three-wheeled city vehicle
February 18, 2014
SAE International
A team of researchers from the University of Waterloo undertook a study of a three-wheeled vehicle in order to find possible solutions to the megacity problems of congestion and limited parking. With use of a model in MapleSim, they made comparisons of system performance at varying speeds and front-wheel steering angles.

Discovering the Mathematics-Based Gömböc Shape
May 28, 2013
Product Design and Development
“Domokos and Várkonyi identified a two-parameter family of objects, all of which had the desired mono-monostatic property. However, not all of them were convex. Maple was used to identify the convex shapes and thus prove the existence of the shape. The process involved a large amount of complex, precise mathematical computation, and Maple’s symbolic computation power made it possible.”
Maple helps Discover Mathematics-based Gömböc Shape
April 14, 2013
Scientific Computing and Instrumentation
“The invention of Gömböc is the culmination of a long process of mathematical research and Maple, the mathematical computation engine from Maplesoft, played an important role in its discovery. The yet-undiscovered shape was known to be a convex mono-monostatic object — a three-dimensional object, which because of its geometry had only one possible way to balance upright. Domokos and Várkonyi identified a two-parameter family of objects, all of which had the desired mono-monostatic property. However, not all of them were convex. Maple was used to identify the convex shapes and thus prove the existence of the shape.

Machine Design
Once Bak is confident of the custom elements’ performance, he incorporates them into MapleSim models of the actuation system and evaluates the complete crane’s likely performance. “We already built a model of an existing crane and demonstrated that it accurately predicts the real crane’s behavior. The model lets us study the likely impact of design changes to individual components.”
Toyota Uses Maplesoft Symbolic Computation Methods in Control Design
February 28, 2013
Control Design
“Toyota Motor Engineering & Manufacturing North America is working in combined efforts with mathematical and analytical software provider Maplesoft in a new project with an end goal of shortening Toyota's development time while maintaining product quality. The research-based Symbolic Control project will use Maplesoft's symbolic computation methods in robust control design.”
Maplesoft project for Toyota leverages symbolic computation
February 28, 2013
R&D Magazine
“This project will see the leading car manufacturer use new symbolic computation methods in robust control design, with a strong focus on methods for linear, nonlinear, and parametric systems. Maplesoft technology is rooted in strong symbolic computation techniques, making it an appropriate choice for Toyota.”
Symbolic computation drives design
February 28, 2013
Scientific Computing World
“The main goal of the new Symbolic Control project is research that leads to the implementation of symbolic design and analysis methods for linear, nonlinear and parametric robust control. New research will allow developers to consider system nonlinearities, modelling inaccuracies, and parametric uncertainties in the design process.”
