Maple, the mathematical computing software for education, research, and development

Maplesoft™ announced a major new release of its flagship product, Maple™, the mathematical computing software for education, research, and development involving mathematics, engineering, and the sciences. With Maple 2015, Maplesoft offers important new abilities to both educators and researchers in the areas of data analysis, application development, statistics education, and more.

Maple combines a powerful math engine with an interface that makes it easy to analyze, explore, visualize, and solve problems.

Maple 2015 includes a powerful new infrastructure for accessing, working with, and visualizing millions of data sets. Maple customers can freely access time series data sets from finance, economics, and demographics, such as current data on stocks and commodities, foreign exchange rates, macroeconomic data on labor market indicators, population statistics, and much more. All data, whether it is built into Maple or available through a connection with Quandl, an online provider of curated data from hundreds of sources, can be seamlessly searched, downloaded, and used inside Maple. Customers can use the powerful computation and data visualization tools in Maple 2015 to investigate trends, analyze, filter, and visualize results using a wide variety of techniques, and build applications based on the data.

Maple 2015 also includes many other advances in both its computation engine and interface.
  • Many new facilities for application development, including more customizations for one-step app creation, new microphone and speaker components, and support for programmatic content creation
  • Advances in mathematics, in integration, differential equations, iterative maps, group theory, physics, and more
  • New Clickable Math tools, such as new palettes and 60 new interactive Math Apps covering topics in math, physics, statistics, chemistry, and finance
  • Expanded support for statistics education, including new tutors, palettes, and Math Apps designed explicitly for teaching and learning statistics
  • Online sharing of Maple documents and interactive applications through the MapleCloud, which is now accessible through web browsers
“Because Maple combines an extremely powerful mathematics engine with an interface that makes it easy to analyze, explore, visualize, and solve mathematical problems, Maple is the ideal tool for both the academic world and industry,” says Dr. Laurent Bernardin, Executive Vice-President and Chief Scientist at Maplesoft. “With Maple 2015, the new facilities for handling data sets make it even easier to use Maple to examine important global trends and make sense of the reams of data that surround us.

Maple helps educators, students, scientists, engineers, and researchers get their work done quickly and reliably, and the new and enhanced features in this new release make this easier than ever.”
Maple is available in several languages including including French, Simplified Chinese, and Brazilian Portuguese and Japanese.
