Updates to Differential Equation (DE) Solvers in Maple 9

 In Maple 9, the power of the differential equation solvers has been greatly increased for exact and numeric DEs. In addition, there is a new interactive graphical interface for solving ODE problems. Summary Graphical Interface for Exact and Numeric Solutions

 • The ODE Analyzer, a new interactive interface, has been created for numeric and symbolic solutions of ODE and ODE systems. The interface is easy to use, with many common options. In addition to computation of solutions and solution values, plots can also be generated. The interface is suitable as an educational tool; it can provide the corresponding Maple commands needed to compute the solution or plot. For information on launching the interface (and command-line options), see dsolve/interactive. For an illustrated description of the interface, see worksheet/interactive/dsolve. First Order Nonlinear Equations
 • New solving methods for ODEs of Abel type.
 • New solving methods for ODEs that can be mapped into solvable Abel and Riccati type ODEs.
 Second Order Linear Equations
 • New solving methods for ODEs that have non-rational coefficients or admit hypergeometric solutions.
 • New solving methods for rational coefficient ODEs that admit doubly-periodic non-Liouvillian solutions.
 • New integration methods for second order linear ODEs that explore non-standard forms of their Lie symmetries.
 Miscellaneous
 • Update of many dsolve routines to return ODE solutions in terms of hypergeometric functions instead of integrals if possible.
 • Significant optimization of dsolve routines for the computation and use of differential invariants to solve nonlinear ODEs.
 • Significant optimization of dsolve routines by more quickly abandoning attempts to solve an ODE using algorithms that cannot solve it. For average problems, routines exit three to ten times faster.
 • Update of the dsolve function to use the LinearFunctionalSystems package for the computation of series solutions to linear ODE systems with polynomial coefficients.
 • New solving methods for PDE systems and optimization of the existing pdsolve routines for solving a single PDE. Numerical Methods for Ordinary Differential Equations
 • More efficient Taylor series ODE solutions with high precision.
 • Interactive features added to the dsolve function output. You can query about and change the initial data, method used, and other parameters.
 • Ability to solve ODE systems containing user-defined functions.
 Numerical Methods for Partial Differential Equations
 • Extension of all numeric PDE methods to solve nonlinear PDEs that are linear in the highest time derivative.
 • Addition of time-adaptive solution computation. For example, you can now compute a solution to within a specified error per unit time step.
 • Computation and plotting of error estimates for a solution as a function of time and space. Exact Solutions for Ordinary and Partial Differential Equations Linear ODEs

 $\left\{{0}\right\}$ (47) Numerical Solution for Ordinary and Partial Differential Equations

 In Maple 9, a number of improvements have been implemented in the numeric ODE and PDE solvers, including the following. Numeric Solutions of ODE and ODE Systems

 • Modifications to the taylorseries method to allow more efficient computation of high accuracy solutions.
 • Addition of interactive features to the procedure returns of the numeric ODE solvers allows you to query and change the initial data, query the last computed point (very useful for problems with singularities), and query the method used in the procedure, for example, rkf45. For more information, see dsolve/numeric/IVP.
 • Significant efficiency improvements to the numeric ODE boundary value problem solver, especially for difficult problems.
 • Ability to solve ODE systems containing user-defined functions. For more information, see the known option in dsolve/numeric. Numeric Solutions of Time Dependent PDE and PDE Systems

 • Extension of all methods (schemes) to solve nonlinear PDEs that are linear in the highest time derivative.
 • Computation and plotting of error estimates for the solution as a function of time and space. For more information, see pdsolve/numeric/errorcontrol.
 • Addition of time-adaptive solution computation. For example, you can now compute a solution to within a specified error per unit time step. Note: Only the time step can be adapted. The solution must be computed with a number of spatial points sufficient to keep the spatial error within tolerance. This condition is monitored, and an error results if the spatial mesh is too coarse. For more information, see pdsolve/numeric/errorcontrol.
