# Maple on FASnet Upgraded to Version 2019¶

Maple on FASnet has been upgraded from version 2018 to version **2019**.

## What is Maple?¶

Maple is an interactive computer algebra system. It has the ability to algebraically manipulate unbounded integers, exact rational numbers, real numbers with arbitrary precision, symbolic formulae, polynomials, sets, lists, equations, arrays, vectors, and matrices. Maple can solve systems of equations and differentiate and integrate expressions, as well as do 2-D and 3-D plotting and animation. HTML conversion is built-in.

## Maple on Linux¶

Maple 2019 has been symbolically linked into the standard paths. The following commands will start Maple 2019:

**maple**(command-line version)**xmaple**(X-windows graphical interface)**mint**(syntax checker for programs written in maple)

The previous versions (“maple2018”, “xmaple2018”, “mint2018”) are also symlinked into the standard paths, in case you still need them.

The man pages are also symlinked into the standard man paths. Type “man maple” for more information.

## Maple on Mac OS X¶

Maple 2019 for Mac OS X is available. If you want to have it installed on your FASnet Mac OS X machine, please send e-mail to research-support@sfu.ca.

## Maple on Microsoft Windows¶

Maple 2019 is available for Microsoft Windows on both 32-bit and 64-bit platforms. If you want to have it installed on your FASnet Windows PC, please send e-mail to research-support@sfu.ca.

## Maple Tutorial or Demo¶

If you would like to arrange for a Maple tutorial or demo, please contact SFU’s resident Maple expert, Prof. Michael Monagan, in the department of Mathematics. He can be reached at mmonagan@cecm.sfu.ca.
