|Welcome to the
November 2006 Issue of the Maple Reporter!
The Maple Reporter provides all 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 launch of the MATLAB
and Simulink Connectivity Toolkit, the essential set of Maple-powered
analytical tools that accelerate your analysis and model development
for MATLAB and Simulink. Maplesoft has also launched a new MapleConnect
product, Geometry Expressions, and two new language packs for Maple

& Simulink Connectivity Toolkit
new toolkit from Maplesoft uses the advanced mathematical
power of Maple to enable engineers to derive solutions
for use in MATLAB and Simulink in a fraction of the
time it would take to do manually. This toolkit includes,
Maple 10, BlockBuilder for Simulink, and the Maple-MATLAB

could win an iPod!
|Maplesoft is always looking for
great ideas and techniques from our user base. If Maple
or any of our other products, has helped you work more
efficiently, creatively, or just simply better with
your mathematics, we want to hear from you. Just fill-in
a few questions on our Website and you have a chance
of winning an iPod.
Maple Toolbox for MATLAB Product Demonstration
new product demonstration illustrates the connection of
Maple and MATLAB, with examples of how you can derive solutions
in one, and manipulate them in the other. Maple’s
capabilities are also highlighted with the solution of a
higher-order differential equation and a demonstration of
its features that aid in the design and solution development
MapleConnect Product Geometry Expressions for Maple
Expressions is the world's first Interactive Symbolic Geometry
System. This means: geometric figures can be defined by
either symbolic constraints or numeric locations. Measurements
on your drawing are not only presented numerically, but
also expressed symbolically as mathematical expressions
which can be exported to Maple for analysis. Where Maple
automates the analysis of mathematical expressions, Geometry
Expressions automates the creation of those expressions.
New Media Center
created an online Media Center to help you keep up with
the latest news and research past news about Maplesoft.
You'll also find customer references and successes, documents
and graphics available for download, links to our product
suite, and much more. Please visit often to stay current
on the latest developments.
New Version of MapleNet Available
10.5 is the latest release of the enhanced web-based platform
for deploying live technical knowledge and applications.
This release features; better set up and performance, increased
interactivity, and improved presentation control.
ICP for Maple Has Two New Add-Ons
for Maple now has two add-on products that extend its capabilities.
The Actuator/Sensor Nonlinearities (ASN) Module, and the
Multi-input, Single-Output (MISO) Modeling Add-On. The ASN
Module compensates for the effects of non-linear operating
areas in the creation of system models. MISO Modeling allows
you to include multiple inputs in the determination of dynamic
New Maple Language Packs
Maplesoft has launched two additional language packs for
Maple 10 – a Chinese and Korean downloadable update.
The Chinese language pack provides a translated version
of the Maple 10 interface and translated context sensitive
menus. The Korean language pack provides a translated version
of the Maple 10 interface.

and Maple Fellow, to discuss innovative and effective uses
of tools like Maple for improving how mathematics is taught
to students. He also shares many of his experiences over
the years as he transitioned from Maple pioneer to guru.
As well, Louise Krmpotic, Director of the Maple T.A. group
at Maplesoft, gives us details about the Maple T.A. product

The Maple Application
Center has received the following new applications over
the last month:
Maplesoft in the Press
Here are some highlights
of this past months press coverage. There was a review of
the Global Optimization Toolbox for Maple in IEEE Control
Systems Magazine, and an article written by Tom Lee in Canadian
Optimization Toolbox for Maple
IEEE Control Systems Magazine, October 2006
“The Global Optimization Toolbox for Maple provides
a widely applicable, fully integrated development environment
that can support control engineering applications and
help realize the significant potential that global optimization
has, as a valuable tool in control system design.”
The Math Behind Design Automation, by Tom Lee
Canadian Electronics, September 2006
“As modern engineering becomes
more complex and as the timelines to innovations continue
to shorten, more and more engineers are beginning to discover
the benefits of comprehensive math systems in the industrial
tool chain. Elimination of sign and unit errors, ability
to perform “pre-simulations” on idealized models
to determine feasible parameter spaces, and checking results
can mean significant time savings and increased quality
of design information.”
Desktop Engineering, September 2006
“Mechanics of Materials is an ideal companion to Maple
for researchers and mechanical or civil engineers who work
with applied and structural mechanics and strength of materials.”
Toolbox for MATLAB
Design Product News, September 2006
“The toolbox consists of two components: Maple 10,
a tool for solving complex problems and creating executable
technical documents; and the Maple-MATLAB Connector. The
Connector is an add-on to Maple 10 that provides a two-way
link between Maple and MATLAB, enabling isers to define
variables in either environment and use them in the other.”
TenLinks, September 2006
TenLinks, a site for technical professionals, published
our last few product announcements.
Offers 4 Engineering Toolkits for Simulation
“The Maplesoft Engineering Toolkits are suites of
Maple -powered analytical design tools that offer a combination
of powerful mathematical solvers with domain specific functions
for particular applications.“
Offers Maple Toolbox for MATLAB
“With this Toolbox, Maplesoft offers a technical computing
solution that is tightly integrated with MATLAB, providing
direct access to all the commands, variables, and functions
of each product while working in either environment.”
Offers BlockBuilder for Simulink Japanese Edition
“BlockBuilder™ for Simulink ® Japanese Edition
is now available from Cybernet Systems Co., Ltd. BlockBuilder
for Simulink Japanese Edition enables engineers to save
time and dramatically reduce the risk of error in the model-based
design of dynamic systems.”
