Maplesoft公司发布其旗舰产品的重大更新版本—Maple2017 ，Maple 2017 是一个通用型的商用计算机代数系统。新版将Maple的所有模块进行了更新，能求解更多数学问题，包括微分方程、统计学、图论及更广阔的数学领域问题。他使数学问题的分析、研究、可视化及解决过程变得更为简便。基于Maple2017强大新功能，现在教育工作者、科学工作者及工程师可用一种更丰富更快捷的方式来解决问题。Maple起源于1988年，由加拿大安大略滑铁卢的一家公司，Waterloo Maple Inc.（亦称Maplesoft枫软）进行开发和商业销售。最新版是Maple 2017.3。它的主要竞争者是Mathematica。
Maple 2017集成了世界上最强大的数学计算引擎和易于使用的界面，支持包括简体中文、繁体中文、法语、巴西葡萄牙语等在内多种语言，能够非常方便地分析、探索、可视化、求解数学问题，解决方案涉及了在线测试和评估、系统级建模仿真、在线STEM课件等。无论是在智能手机上探索数学概念，还是帮助企业降低风险、开发高质量产品、加速开发流程，实现模型驱动的创新方法，Maple 2017都将提供现代化、创新型的解决方案以面对当今的挑战。
Maplesoft has released an update to major release of its flagship product, Maple 2017, the mathematical software that makes it extremely easy to analyze, explore, visualize, and solve math problems. Maple 2017.3 is a maintenance update to Maple 2017. It contains a variety of improvements to Maple 2017.
Maple 2017 provides numerous improvements in mathematical power, visualizations and deployment that will appeal to a variety of users.As always, there are constant improvements in the mathematical engine, implementing new algorithms and adding more flexibility and efficiency to existing ones. New abilities include finding exact solutions to more PDEs with boundary conditions, finding new limits, solving more integrals, performing new graph theory computations, analyzing data in new ways, and much more.
In addition, with Maple 2017, customers can:
– Extend Maple’s power through user-created packages, with instant, seamless access to a rich collection of packages written by customers and shared in the MapleCloud.
– Construct even complicated plots easily using a redesigned Plot Builder Assistant that makes it even easier to create and customize a wide variety of plots, simply and without knowing a single plot command.
– Password protect Maple documents while still allowing access to the procedures they contain, so users can share their work without sharing their intellectual property.
– Expand their worldview with new map visualization tools and a geographical database for exploring and understanding world data in a highly visual way.
Other enhancements include new visualizations, additional tools to support algorithm and application development, tools to enhance engineering computations, more comprehensive handling of user-supplied assumptions about a mathematical problem, which Maple takes into account when finding solutions , and speed-ups in fundamental computation routines.
