Maple 10  Harnessing the Power of Mathematics.Juergen Gerhard, Maplesoft.
Abstract: This presentation will highlight some of the new features in Maple 10. The graphical user interface has been enriched by many aspects turning Maple into a true authoring environment for live mathematical documents, such as a 2dimensional mathematical expression editor, tables, a presentation mode that allows selective hiding of Maple syntax, and over 1500 new mathematical characters and symbols. On the mathematical side, Maple 10 offers a comprehensive new Statistics package, two new packages for algebraic geometry and polynomial system solving, enhanced numerical and symbolic differentiation, new packages sound and image processing, a Student[VectorCalculus] package, more powerful algorithms for differential equations, and more. The participation of members from Maplesoft's research partners at ORCCA, SFU, INRIA, and MSU in creating some of these great new features is gratefully acknowledged.
