The evalhf command, which evaluates an expression to a numerical value using the floating-point hardware of the underlying system, has been extended to handle complex numbers. In addition, a number of common commands like map, zip, and basic Matrix arithmetic are now also handled directly by evalhf.
<Text-field style="Heading 2" layout="Heading 2" bookmark="bkmrk2">Numerical evaluation of new Mathematical Functions</Text-field>
Support for the numerical evaluation of several new mathematical functions has been added. The functions are: Wrightomega, SphericalY (spherical harmonics), and the five Heun functions HeunG, HeunC, HeunB, HeunD, and HeunT.
For more details on this function, see Enhancements to Symbolic Capabilities in Maple 10.
