PRESS NOTE: Japanese version of Maple 16 now available

Sets new standard for ease of use in mathematical software

Waterloo, Canada; March 28, 2012: Following the announcement of Maple 16, a major new edition of the technical computing software, Maplesoft today released the Japanese version of the product. With Maple 16, mathematicians and engineers in Japan now have access to tools and techniques that set new standards in mathematical software usability, while providing fresh, innovative ways to explore mathematics. Substantial improvements have been made across the entire product, in mathematical algorithms, visualization, programming language, engineering tools, documentation, education features, authoring tools, and more.

“I use Maple in different ways, from interactive explorations and quick prototyping to developing advanced applications, visualizing results, and creating teaching material,” said Dr. Yasuyuki Nakamura, Associate Professor at Nagoya University, and member of Japan Society for Symbolic and Algebraic Computation. “With all the improvements across the entire product, Maple 16 offers useful new features to support every aspect of my work.”

Leading companies in Japan such as Toyota Motor Corporation and Isuzu Advanced Engineering Center, Ltd, as well as many organizations in the automotive, electronics and robotics industries, have been using Maple in their cutting-edge technology projects for several years.

“Maplesoft is a subsidiary of Cybernet Systems which is based in Japan. As many of Maplesoft’s key customers are also based in Japan, it is a very important market for Maplesoft technology,” said Tetsu Yamaguchi, Executive Vice President of Technical Marketing. “Maple is a critical tool for Japanese users who are always looking for cutting-edge ways to stay ahead of global competition and to support innovation. Mathematicians, researchers, and engineers in Japan will see additional savings in time and effort from the over 4500 additions and improvements in Maple 16.”

In Maple 16, Drag-to-Solve™ and Smart Popups join palettes, interactive assistants, context-sensitive menus, tutors, and other Clickable Math tools that provide a point-and-click interface for solving, visualizing, and exploring mathematical problems.  Maple 16 is available in English and Japanese, with language pack extensions available for French, Chinese, Spanish, Korean, Greek, Hungarian, and Brazilian Portuguese. Maple 16 Japanese version will be sold and supported by Cybernet Systems Co., Ltd in Japan.
