Language and System Changes in Maple 14

Maple 14 includes the following language and system changes.

 

Help Browser

Eval and rtable

RegularChains option in RootFinding[Isolate]

Help Browser

• 

By setting interface(helpbrowser=standard), it is possible to view documentation through the Standard GUI's help browser launched from any interface.  This gives Command-line and Classic users a nicer interface for viewing documentation including hyperlinks, full-text search, and the table of contents.  Additionally, help pages that are written using features specific to Maple's Standard interface and that were previously not viewable in Classic and Command-line help will be accessible. This includes some help pages, example worksheets, and Maple Portal pages.  For more information on the helpbrowser variable, see interface.

Eval and rtable

• 

Eval now works on rtable constructions such as Matrix.

Eval(Matrix([[x^2 + y]]), {x=3, y=2}) mod 5;

RegularChains option in RootFinding[Isolate]

• 

Users of RootFinding[Isolate] now can choose the method to isolate the real roots of polynomial system.  These methods are "RS", which is based on Fabrice Rouillier's RealSolving (RS) C library, and "RC", which is based on the RegularChains package by Marc Moreno Maza et al.

with(RootFinding):

F := [x^2-2, y-1];

Fx22,y1

(2)

Isolate(F, [x,y], method="RS");

x=−1.414213562,y=1.000000000,x=1.414213562,y=1.000000000

(3)

Isolate(F, [x,y], method="RC");

x=−1.414213562,y=1.,x=1.414213562,y=1.
