I received my Ph.D. from the University of Pennsylvania in 1998 and I have been teaching since then at SUNY Oneonta for 1 year, at Shepherd University for 5 years, at Tennessee Tech for 2 years, at Lane College for 1 year, and this year I taught at the University of Massachusetts Lowell. My research interests include Representation Theory and Combinatorics.

Here are the steps for making StartMaple example with Dev-C++.
  1. Start Dev-C++.
  2. Click File - New - Project, select Console Application, check C Project radio button and type the name of the project - something like SMexample.
  3. Copy the source from ?StartMaple help page and paste it in main.c (instead of pretyped text there).
  4. Click Alt+P (or Project - Project Options), go to Directories, select Include Directories and add C:\Program Files\Maple 10\extern\include there.
  5. In Parameters (in Project Options) in the Compiler window type -D_MSC_VER and in the Linker window click Add Library or Object and add "../Program Files/Maple 10/" .
Similarly to searching of digits of π, Maple can access other Internet resources. In particular, here is an example of accessing MAGMA through William Stein's online SAGE/MAGMA/PARI calculator,
Will mentioned in his blog a problem of finding the first occurence in π the given sequence of digits - a birthday, for example. It can be done in Maple through the search engine at as follows,
It would be good if I could tell looking at the list of messages in the Inbox or other folder, to which of them I replied. Also, it would be a nice feature if I could see in the Sent folder whether my message to somebody had been read, or not.
This blog entry evolved from my reply to Moira Chas's post. I want to thank her for initiating such an interesting topic. Usually Mandelbrot set is drawn in Maple using plot3d command. That also can be done using densityplot. In the example below I use mandelbrot from John Oprea's worksheet,
mandelbrot := proc(x, y) 
local c, z, m; 
c := evalf(x+y*I); z := c; 
for m to 50 while abs(z) < 2 do z := z^2+c od; 
m end;
