I am a Senior Developer in the Mathematical Software Group and have been with Maplesoft since 2007. I am also an Adjunct Assistant Professor in the School of Computer Science at the University of Waterloo.

I have a Ph.D in Mathematics from North Carolina State University as well as Masters and Bachelors degrees from the University of Oregon. I have been working on research in computational mathematics since 1997.

My main research interests in are computational linear and polynomial algebra, especially numerical polynomial algebra. I currently work on the exact algebraic solvers as well as other subsystems of Maple.

The first notation y:=t-> defines y as a function so you can use the notation y(x), y(t) , etc. Just writing y:= defines y as a regular variable whose value is the expression on the right hand side of the assignment.
You'll want to do a: with(IntegrationTools); before that or IntegrationTools[Change] of course.
I use Maple mode for vim and find it very useful. Recently, I was wondering how I could get syntax highlighting into my command line file viewer (more or less) and happened upon this nice trick for repurposing vim into a pager. Having "less" with syntax highlighting is nice.
