MaplePrimes Announcement

We are happy to announce another Maple Conference to be held October 24 and 25, 2024!

It will be a free virtual event again this year, and it will be an excellent opportunity to meet other members of the Maple community and get the latest news about our products. More importantly, it's a chance for you to share the work you've been doing with Maple and Maple Learn. 

We have just opened the Call for Participation. We are inviting submissions of presentation proposals on a range of topics related to Maple, including Maple in education, algorithms and software, and applications. We also encourage submission of proposals related to Maple Learn. 

You can find more information about the themes of the conference and how to submit a presentation proposal at the Call for Participation page. Applications are due July 17, 2024.

Presenters will have the option to submit papers and articles to a special Maple Conference issue of the Maple Transactions journal after the conference.

Registration for attending the conference will open in July.  Watch for further announcements in the coming weeks.

I encourage all of you here in the Maple Primes community to consider joining us for this event, whether as a presenter or an attendee!

I’m excited to announce that we’ve just launched MapleSim 2024.

The new release has tools that are designed to drive innovation, and overall save you time when creating and developing simulations.

At Maplesoft we are looking to continually enhance our engineering software with new features based on customer feedback, and I’m pleased to share some of the fruits of that labor, and thank the developers, product management team, and  customers that contributed.

The new offering  helps engineers to

  • Rapidly Tune Parameters
  • Explore Design Concepts
  • Expand Modeling Capabilities

For example, the new Rerun panel allows you to significantly cut the time between simulations as you quickly apply different parameter values, initial conditions and even simulation settings between runs. It does this by skipping the formulation steps when there are no structural changes made to the model, and you can even see the plots and results of the different iterations side by side.
You can see it in action in this short demo video.

There is now support for the latest Modelica feature set, so you can import Modelica Libraries that make use of MSL 4.0.0 features, and adds a range of new modeling components to the standard MapleSim libraries (electrical, 1-D mechanical, signal block and more).


MapleSim 2024 also includes more components in the Hydraulic library to support modeling of flow restrictions and adds a Scripting button to add and organize Maple worksheets.

We’ve also applied a whole series of updates to our MapleSim add-on products, including:

  • The MapleSim Web Handling Library has new tools for modeling heavier webs, winding of multiple rolls on the same drum, and adding a Switching Nip Roller to swing the web contact points between rollers.
  • The MapleSim Connector for FMI can now import and export FMI 3.0.
  • The MapleSim CAD Toolbox supports recent software releases from NX™, SOLIDWORKS®, Solid Edge®, Parasolid®, and other CAD tools.
  • The MapleSim Heat Transfer Library has gained a new T-junction component for the Water subpackage to improve flow/pressure-drop calculations for systems with branches.

We have an upcoming webinar for you to see the new 2024 features in MapleSim Web Handling Library – you can sign up to register here.

You can find out more about the other new features at the MapleSim What’s New web page, and as always, we are happy to hear your comments and product suggestions.

And if you are new to MapleSim and would like to try building and running a model yourself, you can request a free trial, or contact Maplesoft sales team with any questions.

Consider the equation  (2^x)*(27^(1/x)) = 24  for which we need to find the exact values ​​of its real roots. This is not difficult to solve by hand if you first take the logarithm of this equation to any base, after which the problem is reduced to solving a quadratic equation. But the  solve  command fails to solve this equation and returns the result in RootOf form. The problem is solved if we first ask Maple to take the logarithm of the equation. I wonder if the latest versions of Maple also do not directly address the problem?

solve(Eq, x, explicit);

map(ln, Eq); # Taking the logarithm of the equation
solve(%, x);
simplify({%}); # The final result
