# Maple: A Primer (Iop Concise Physics) (Paperback)

**Maple is a comprehensive symbolic mathematics application which is well suited for demonstrating physical science topics and solving associated problems.**

Because Maple is such a rich application, it has a somewhat steep learning curve. Most existing texts concentrate on mathematics; the Maple help facility is too detailed and lacks physical science examples, many Maple-related websites are out of date giving readers information on older Maple versions.

This book records the author's journey of discovery; he was familiar with SMath but not with Maple and set out to learn the more advanced application. It leads readers through the basic Maple features with physical science worked examples, giving them a firm base on which to build if more complex features interest them.
