Information about Maple

A few pointers

  1. A Maple statement must be terminated with a semi-colon, i.e., the character ';'.
  2. Almost everything that is done in Maple is done with functions.
  3. A variable name is defined in Maple using ":="; the equality sign by itself is reserved for logical use such as in "if" statements.
  4. For help on "topic" enter the command "?topic".
