Announcements about MaplePrimes and Maplesoft
Maplesoft is providing an advance notice of changes to platform and operating system availability in the next major release of the Maple product family. Our current plans are to discontinue support for the IBM AIX, HP-UX, HP TRU64 , and SGI IRIX platforms and the Windows 98, ME and NT operating systems. Please see www.maplesoft.com/futureplatforms.aspx for full details.

With this Generation of MapleStudio you can also plot complex functions in 2D and also 3D. For doing this, MapleStudio uses the conformal and the conformal3d comands of Maple 10. The following example will show you, how it works.

With mapleSTUDIO you can plot functions in 2D and 3D. Animating your plots won't be a problem any time. This is the easiest way to plot your functions.
You can use it here online on mapleNET or you can download it and run the worksheet on your Computer. For adding new components to this worksheet I will only change the file on mapleprimes, but the name and the URL will be the same. So you should bookmark the mapleNET-URL for using the newest version of mapleSTUDIO. You can also add my Blog to your Feed-Reader, so you will know, when a new version is available.

server: efnet channel: #maple this channel is unaffiliated with maplesoft. It is new at the time of this posting so be patient if there is not much activity at first. I know a bit about maple and may be available to help people with it. If you have never used IRC before it is not difficult. You may want to read about it a little by googleing IRC. if you just want to connect I have posted instructions about connecting to this and other math related channels on IRC at this link: http://web.mac.com/luther_driggers/iWeb/SFUMSU/NEWS/50430B9A-5AAD-48DC-B53B-A5565C352F70.html
An algorithm created to help scientists process images of tiny specimens has unexpected applications for brain teasers. When Cornell physicist Veit Elser attempted to demystify an esoteric imaging problem for biologists, he had no idea his solution would also help subway riders and break room loiterers around the world figure out those challenging, Sudoku puzzles. While creating an algorithm that could render images of small and delicate biological specimens, Elser inadvertently found a universal solution for the popular Japanese brainteasers. "This algorithm, which was extremely effective in image reconstruction microscopy, was extremely general," he said. "If you just express it in the right mathematical language it could be used in all kinds of things."
Take a piece of string — I mean literally, go get a piece of string and tie it into a knot. Now tape the two ends together so it makes a closed loop — necessary to fulfill the mathematical definition of a "knot." How many different knot types do you think there are? The number is infinite, and the question of how to categorize these manifestations of loopiness has engaged some of the finest mathematical minds for a century. Original story

This feature makes it easy for you to share mathematics with people worldwide. You can now upload your Maple documents to a MapleNET server for free. This allows you to share your interactive Maple documents with people worldwide, even to people who do not have a copy of Maple; all they need is a web browser. Read on to learn more about the new features.

Hi everyone! I want to thank Tom Lee for inviting me to join the MaplePrimes community. I feel very enthusiastic about the creative potential of this wonderful collaborative resource and want to take a moment to introduce myself. My first blog post includes a brief biography and states some of my Maple plans and research goals.
Dr. Sarah J. Greenwald, Appalachian State University, and Dr. Andrew Nestler, Santa Monica College have put together a site about mathematics and The Simpsons,including an exhaustive list of all math references on the show, relevant images, and the math background of the writers. They use this material to introduce concepts, motivate students and reduce math anxiety, apparently. Aside from its potential educational value, it's fun. See Simpson's Math. eithne
The Maple Conference is the annual user conference held in Waterloo, Canada. For 2006, the dates are July 23-26. The conference information page contains the initial details.
The Maple 10 Quick Reference Card is now available as a downloadable, printable version from the Maplesoft website. UNIX, Macintosh and Windows versions are all available. http://www.maplesoft.com/support/faqs/Maple10/General/qrc.aspx The quick refernce card is also available with Maple 10 in electronic form and contains a summary of important concepts and commands. To see the Quick Reference Card inside Maple, go to Help>Quick Reference.
I did a Google search for site:beta.mapleprimes.com/blog +maple (I was trying to count how many blogs on Primes Google knew about - a lot!). And then I glance over at the "Sponsored links" over on the right hand side, and what do I see but a link to www.wolfram.com. Could it be that they have actually bought the word maple for their AdSense keywords? I tried a few other queries, even re-trying the one above, and that link did not come up again. Very odd. So it looks like it was some kind of Heisenbug. None of my ``obvious'' Google searches came up with any sponsored links from either Maplesoft or Wolfram Research (lots of page hits, more often of ``friendly'' sites than the corporate site).
FYI, Maplesoft has just released a patch for Maple 10. You can download the patch through the "Check for Updates" in Maple 10's "Tools" menu.
Here are some screenshots of Functioning Maple V R1 DOS demo (circ. 1991).
