Interactive computer algebra system

Maple 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. It can solve systems of equations and differentiate and integrate expressions. It is sometimes a good alternative to Mathematica.


Maple is not used much at NBI and therefore a maintained installation is not available on our servers. That can be changed if you send an email to

Kits for stand-alone installation and license information can be found at the Copenhagen University Software repository.
