MapleNet 18 is now available.  MapleNet 18 provides increased mobile support and eliminates the need for a Java plug-in when interacting with Maple documents in a web browser. See What’s New in MapleNet 18 for more information.

We have just released a new version of MapleSim.

MapleSim 7 makes it substantially easier to explore and validate designs, create and manage libraries of custom components, and use your MapleSim models with other tools. It includes:

  • Easy model investigation. A new Results Manager gives you greater flexibility when it comes to investigating your simulation results, including the ability to compare simulation runs on the same axes, instantly plot both probed and unprobed variables, and easily create custom plots.
  • Convenient library creation. With MapleSim 7, it is significantly easier to create, manage, and share libraries of custom components.
  • Improved Modelica support. MapleSim 7 expands the support of the Modelica language so that more Modelica definitions can be used directly inside MapleSim.

We have also updated and expanded the MapleSim 7 family of add-on products:

  • The new MapleSim Battery Library, which is available as a separate add-on, allows you to incorporate physics-based predictive models of battery cells into your system models so you can take battery behavior into account early in the design process. 
  • The MapleSim Connector for FMI, which allows engineers to share very efficient, high-fidelity models created in MapleSim with other modeling tools, has been expanded to support more export formats for co-simulation and model exchange.

See What’s New in MapleSim 7 for more information about these and other improvements in MapleSim.

We have issued an update to correct a problem a small number of Mac and 64-bit Linux users have experienced when doing certain types of floating point computations on very recent hardware (such as this report on MaplePrimes: http://www.mapleprimes.com/questions/201815-Problem-Loading-MKL-In-Maple-18). When the problem occurs, instead of giving the result, Maple issues a “lost kernel connection” error message and must be restarted.

While this issue does not occur on most computers, we recommend that all Maple 18 customers running on Mac or 64-bit Linux install this update to ensure they do not encounter this problem. This update can be safely applied to any Mac or 64-bit Linux computer. Windows and 32-bit Linux users do not need, and cannot install, this update.

To get this update, you can use Tools>Check for Updates from within Maple, or visit Maple 18.01a Downloads.

We have just released an all-new, second edition of the Calculus Study Guide.

This guide has been completely rewritten and greatly expanded and to take full advantage of Maple’s Clickable Math approach.  It covers all of Calculus I and Calculus II and has over 450 worked examples, the vast majority of which are solved using interactive, Clickable Math techniques. 

Not only is this guide useful for students learning calculus, but it can also serve as a guide for instructors interested in pursuing a syntax-free approach to using Maple in their teaching.

See Clickable Calculus Study Guide for more information.  For even more information, you could also attend a live webinar about the new study guide next Wednesday.

Updates are now available for both Maple 18 and MapleSim 6.4.

Maple 18.01 includes a variety of enhancements, including:

  • Significantly enhanced  efficiency for many  numerical linear algebra computations
  • New keyboard shortcuts for “Execute All” ([Ctrl or Cmd]+[Shift]+[Enter]) and for entering slideshow mode ([F11] or [Cmd]+[F11])
  • Improved export of 2-D plots
  • PDF export improvements for documents that include  code edit regions
  • Enhancements to the limit command

 To get this update, you can use Tools>Check for Updates from within Maple, or visit Maple 18.01 Downloads.

MapleSim 6.4.01 includes:

  • Improvements to the templates for creating custom components using discrete state space and discrete transfer function descriptions
  • Improved handling of variable names that include both symbols and numbers
  • UTF-8 filename support
  • Improved backwards compatibility of the Parameter Inspector with older models

 

In MapleSim, use  Help>Check for Updates or visit MapleSim 6.4.01 Update. For best performance, we recommend that you run MapleSim 6.4.01 with Maple 18.01.
