The best book on Maple just got better. This lively book is bursting with clear descriptions, revealing examples and top tips. It is gentle enough to act as an introduction and yet sufficiently comprehensive and well organised to serve as a reference manual. Maple Release 7 is significantly different to earlier releases, so this book will appeal even to hardened users who want to catch up fast.

This book provides an accelerated introduction to Maple for scientific programmers who already have experience in other computer languages (such as C, Pascal, or FORTRAN). It gives an overview of the most commonly used constructs and provides an elementary introduction to Maple programming. This edition of the book has been extensively updated for Maple Release 7 with future releases in mind. This has involved a substantial update of all programs, examples and exercises. Extensive new material has also been added, including an appendix on complex variables in a computer algebra context.
