With the Maple-NAG Connector, you can combine the pre-eminent modeling, exploration and application development abilities of Maple with the power and breadth of trusted NAG numeric routines.  With this new toolbox, you eliminate compile times, and gain simplified calling sequences, searchable documentation, and the ability to use your NAG routines in seamless combination with Maple’s mathematical analysis and visualization tools resulting in faster, more reliable models and applications, created in less time.

User Case Study

Unexploded Ordnance (UXO) location and discrimination struggle could finally get a remedy

In a paper submitted at the 2006 INFORMS Annual Conference, Larry M. Deschaine presented an approach to solving the challenge of accurately locating and discriminating unexploded ordnance (explosives). He, along with colleagues Frank D. Francone and János D. Pintér, has developed a solution that fuses knowledge from Physics, Genetic Programming and Global Optimization.
