Here’s what makes Maple an essential tool for your research:

  • Over 5000 functions covering virtually every area of mathematics, with the breadth, depth, and performance to meet all your mathematical challenges
  • World-leading algorithms for solving problems that are beyond the reach of any other software system, including in differential equations, physics, and more
  • Support for symbolic, numeric, and hybrid computations, so you can choose the best approach for your problem
  • Sophisticated programming language designed for mathematics, suitable for everything from simple scripts to large-scale algorithms and applications (in fact, Maple itself is written almost entirely in the Maple language!)
  • Efficient algorithms and tools for high performance computing and large-scale problem solving
  • Illuminating 2-D and 3-D plots and animations
  • Rich authoring environment for creating technical documents, presentations, and interactive applications


Maple is an important research tool for any discipline that involves mathematics. Here are just a very few of them:

Maple Conference Research Talks

Many researchers who use Maple choose to share some of their work at the annual Maple Conference. Here are just a few examples:
Maple Transactions Journal
Maple Transactions is an open-access online journal that publishes refereed expositions on computer-assisted research in mathematics, applications, and education. Most of the research that is published in this journal is done with the help of Maple.
