Maple is a general-purpose commercial computer algebra system designed for engineers, mathematicians, and scientists.

It is a very powerful system that you can use to solve mathematical problems of any complexity. The software also allows the users to create professional quality documents, presentations, and custom interactive computational tools in the Maple environment.

This software is very mature. Development started on Maple back in 1980, by the Symbolic Computation Group at the University of Waterloo in Waterloo, Ontario, Canada.

Maple's engine can be accessed by a full-featured graphical user interface, a basic worksheet environment, a command-line interface, from Maple applications, and Maplesoft's graphical calculator. Maple incorporates a dynamically typed imperative-style programming language.
