Attend a Maple Tutorial at ECCAD 2004
Maplesoft is offering two free Maple tutorials for ECCAD 2004 attendees
Date: Saturday, May 8, 2004
Time: 4:30 pm to 6:00 pm
Location: TBD
Title: Getting the most out of Maple's LinearAlgebra Package
Maplesoft Presenter: Dave Linder, Team Lead, Mathematical Software
The LinearAlgebra package in Maple is an environment for doing symbolic
and numeric linear algebra computations. Several techniques can be used to
get the most out of this package, in terms of efficiency, speed, memory
consumption, and results. Without requiring prior knowledge of the
package, this tutorial will present a number of such techniques, with
examples from such areas as linear system solving at high precision,
modular linear algebra, and use of datatypes. The session will involve the
participants in using Maple themselves on supplied worksheet material. The
goal of the material is to allow greater understanding through discovery,
both of some potential difficulties and the means to avoid them. Prior
knowledge of basic mathematical linear algebra will be useful to the
participant. Links and references to further reading and documents will be
provided.
Title: Maplets - A Customizable Interface to Maple
Maplesoft Presenter: Stephen Forrest, Developer, Mathematical
Software
This tutorial will introduce Maplets, a customizable interface to Maple
that allows an author of Maple code to create windows, dialogs, and other
visual interfaces that interact with a user to provide the power of Maple
in a friendlier environment. We will see how to create simple Maplets with
only a few lines of code, how to add simple buttons, boxes, and menus to
your Maplet, and how to build programming logic into your Maplet so that
complex Maple calculations can be performed with the click of a mouse.
After a short introduction, the session will be interactive. Attendees
will have the opportunity to write their own Maplets. We will begin with a
simple example and build up to the point where we can create more advanced
Maplets.
