Language and System Changes in Maple 14

Maple 14 includes the following language and system changes.

Help Browser

 • By setting interface(helpbrowser=standard), it is possible to view documentation through the Standard GUI's help browser launched from any interface.  This gives Command-line and Classic users a nicer interface for viewing documentation including hyperlinks, full-text search, and the table of contents.  Additionally, help pages that are written using features specific to Maple's Standard interface and that were previously not viewable in Classic and Command-line help will be accessible. This includes some help pages, example worksheets, and Maple Portal pages.  For more information on the helpbrowser variable, see interface.

Eval and rtable

 • Eval now works on rtable constructions such as Matrix.
 > Eval(Matrix([[x^2 + y]]), {x=3, y=2}) mod 5;
 $\left[\begin{array}{c}{1}\end{array}\right]$ (1)

RegularChains option in RootFinding[Isolate]

 • Users of RootFinding[Isolate] now can choose the method to isolate the real roots of polynomial system.  These methods are "RS", which is based on Fabrice Rouillier's RealSolving (RS) C library, and "RC", which is based on the RegularChains package by Marc Moreno Maza et al.

 > F := [x^2-2, y-1];
 ${F}{≔}\left[{{x}}^{{2}}{-}{2}{,}{y}{-}{1}\right]$ (2)
 > Isolate(F, [x,y], method="RS");
 $\left[\left[{x}{=}{-1.414213562}{,}{y}{=}{1.000000000}\right]{,}\left[{x}{=}{1.414213562}{,}{y}{=}{1.000000000}\right]\right]$ (3)
 > Isolate(F, [x,y], method="RC");
 $\left[\left[{x}{=}{-1.414213562}{,}{y}{=}{1.}\right]{,}\left[{x}{=}{1.414213562}{,}{y}{=}{1.}\right]\right]$ (4)
