The Inside View
Dr. Laurent Bernardin, Chief Scientist, Maplesoft

Maple started as a university research project in symbolic computation over 20 years ago. We are very proud of these roots and continue to cultivate relationships with computer algebra research groups around the world. These relationships allow us to keep Maple at the state of the art in many key areas.
