Language and System Changes in Maple 13

Maple 13 includes the following language and system changes. Element-wise Operators

 • An element-wise operation allows you to distribute the operation over the elements of a list, set, table, Array, or other rtable. The syntax for this is to use a tilde (~) after the given operator or function name.
 > <1,2,3> ^~ <4,5,6>;
 $\left[\begin{array}{c}{1}\\ {32}\\ {729}\end{array}\right]$ (1)
 • Going beyond standard operators, any function can also be applied to the elements of the given arguments. This is done by appending a tilde to the function being called.
 > myjob := proc(x,y,z) x*y^z; end:
 > A := <1,2,3;4,5,6>;
 ${A}{≔}\left[\begin{array}{ccc}{1}& {2}& {3}\\ {4}& {5}& {6}\end{array}\right]$ (2)
 > myjob~(A,A,2);
 $\left[\begin{array}{ccc}{1}& {8}& {27}\\ {64}& {125}& {216}\end{array}\right]$ (3)
 • See operators[elementwise] for a more complete description. Preprocessor Extensions

 • Maple language files that contain preprocessor directives may now be read using the read statement. This enables the use of directives such as $include and$define in a more flexible manner than was previously possible.
