the April 2006 Issue of the Maple Reporter e-newsletter! We
aim to keep you up-to-date on the latest news from Maplesoft,
with articles highlighting new products, innovative application
areas, tips and techniques, events and much more.
This month’s issue features news on the new BlockBuilder™ for
Simulink®, a physical modeling and Simulink block-generation
tool from Maplesoft. We highlight this new product along with
the numerous resources available. Also featured is news on a
recent award for Maple 10, and our new training resources web
We hope you find this month’s issue an enjoyable and informative
read. We have many more exciting developments in the works at
Maplesoft and we look forward to sharing them with you in the
BlockBuilder™ for Simulink® -
New Physical Modeling and Simulink Block-Generation from
BlockBuilder helps engineers to develop ideas from initial
concepts to high-fidelity physical models, and automatically
generate Simulink S-Function blocks to enhance and extend
their Simulink models.
With BlockBuilder you can:
- Rapidly create physical models
from mathematical first principles
- Convert mathematical
models directly into Simulink blocks
- Fully encapsulate
analysis, manipulations, transformations, code generation,
verification and documentation
Engineering’s Golden Mousetrap Awarded to
Maple 10 - Maple 10 was awarded the Design
News Golden Mousetrap Award in the Analysis and Calculation
category. For over 20 years Design News - in partnership
with many important and forward-thinking companies - has
been recognizing engineering achievement and innovative
Training Resources - Maplesoft offers
a comprehensive set of complimentary training materials. You can
now download the popular Maple 10 Quick Start Training materials
and recorded seminar. In addition, whether you are an expert or
someone who is considering a new license purchase, we can provide
a custom training session that is right for you and/or your organization.
Teams with Top French Research Centers to Bring Mathematical Solvers
to Market - Maplesoft, the French National Institute
for Research in Computer Science and Control (INRIA) and the Computer
Science Laboratory of Paris 6 (LIP6) at the Pierre & Marie Curie
University (UPMC) jointly announced that they have entered a cooperative
research project centered around the Solvers for Algebraic Systems
and Applications (SALSA) group. As a result, SALSA’s research
advancements in mathematical solvers will be integrated into Maplesoft’s
product line, ensuring commercial availability of these breakthroughs.

of BlockBuilder. Read what the editor of Desktop Engineering
had to say about BlockBuilder:
Engineering Editor’s Pick of the Week, March
BlockBuilder Environment Enhances Simulink
Written by Tony Lockwood
“ The really cool thing here is that BlockBuilder
uses a freeform workspace. So, you doodle out your ideas
on some physical
design and leverage some algorithms from Maple for your
analyses. The really, really cool thing is that all the
doing this, you are building a Simulink-ready S-Function
block. Further, since this block you created in BlockBuilder
encapsulates your Maple mathematical analysis, it enhances
and extends the resultant Simulink design while saving
time and reducing errors.”
think of BlockBuilder as your project notebook with lots
of smarts, on steroids, dynamic, and broken free of tactile
limitations. …I feel that it will do for initial
development what word processing did for the typewriter."

Primes Community Site Update
the online community of Maple users is
continuously changing the way that you
work with Maple. Last month, a new feature
was released on the site, the MaplePrimes
file manager. This feature makes it
easy for you to share mathematics with
worldwide. You can now upload your Maple
documents to a MapleNet server
for free. This allows you to share your
Maple documents with people worldwide,
even to people who do not have a copy of
Maple; all they need is a web browser.
Check out MaplePrimes today
and see how it can help you with your work.
