Providing students with the powerful symbolic and numeric computational capabilities of the Maple V algebra system, this CD contains an easy-to-implement programming language and comprehensive library of built-in mathematical functions to make solving problems fast and reliable. Maples open architecture allows users to develop a personalised library of functions and to customise the system for almost any application. Its 2- and 3-D graphics bring the power of scientific visualisation to your desktop. New features in Release 5 include: * HTML export for easy Web publishing * spreadsheet functionality * the most advanced GUI in a student version * context-sensitive menus * point-and-click plus drag-and-drop for fast entry and editing * more mathematical functionality including improved 3-D geometry * MATLAB link for executing MATLAB commands within Maple The package includes the updated Maple V Learning Guide.
The book starts with a review of fundamentals of radioactive and stable isotope tracer kinetics and then proceeds with a description of the noncompartmental and multicompartmental modeling methodologies to study systems in the steady state. The focus is on understanding the basic assumptions inherent in the methodologies and the underlying mathematics and statistics, on discussing how to assess how 'good' a model is and on giving some hints on how better to design kinetic studies, in order to increase the probability of a successful study and to ensure the maximal information content in the experimental data to be extracted. The book has an extensive section on parameter estimation, i.e., fitting models to data, first in general terms and then specifically related to noncompartmental and compartmental models. This is written from a basic point of view, and is intended to remove the mystery from the 'black box' of computer optimization software
Part of a four-volume set, this book constitutes the refereed proceedings of the 7th International Conference on Computational Science, ICCS 2007, held in Beijing, China in May 2007. The papers cover a large volume of topics in computational science and related areas, from multiscale physics to wireless networks, and from graph theory to tools for program development.
An essential reference tool for all users of the Maple system, providing a complete listing of every command in the Maple language, categorised into logical categories and explained in this context. A short, introductory tutorial starts the Handbook, and each category begins with a brief introduction to the related subject area. It is well referenced, with an alphabetical index of commands, and pointers to appropriate sections of the official Maple documentation. This new approach to reference material enhances that found in Maples on-line help files and provides a much more organised, intuitive resource for all users of the system. The Handbook improves efficiency by supplying users with the information they need - at their fingertips. This new edition covers the Maple V Release 4 symbolic computation language.
This "hands-on" book is for people who are interested in immediately putting Maple to work. The reader is provided with a compact, fast and surveyable guide that introduces them to the extensive capabilities of the software. The book is sufficient for standard use of Maple and will provide techniques for extending Maple for more specialized work. The author discusses the reliability of results systematically and presents ways of testing questionable results. The book allows a reader to become a user almost immediately and helps him/her to grow gradually to a broader and more proficient use. As a consequence, some subjects are dealt with in an introductory way early in the book, with references to a more detailed discussion later on.
