http://www.maplesoft.com/company/publications/articles/view.aspx?SID=154134&ref=Feed
Waterloo, Canada; July 13, 2016: Maplesoft has entered into an agreement with Perimeter Institute (PI), a leading centre for scientific research, training and educational outreach in foundational theoretical physics, to serve as its Educational Outreach Champion. As part of the agreement, Maplesoft will provide financial support and greater access to its education technology software to researchers, teachers and students at PI. Maplesoft’s contributions will support Perimeter’s Teacher Network training activities, core educational resources, development of online course material, the EinsteinPlus workshop for high school teachers, and the International Summer School for Young Physicists (ISSYP). Perimeter will also facilitate the distribution of complimentary Maplesoft product licenses to students and teachers for personal use.Waterloo, Canada; July 13, 2016: Maplesoft has entered into an agreement with Perimeter Institute (PI), a leading centre for scientific research, training and educational outreach in foundational theoretical physics, to serve as its Educational Outreach Champion.

http://www.maplesoft.com/applications/view.aspx?SID=154132&ref=Feed
This worksheet applies the gradient search method for multi-variable maximization problems. This is an update of our earlier version in the application center. This worksheet solves nonlinear optimization problems by the method of steepest ascent.
Given a function <EM>f(x,y)</EM> and a current point <EM>(`x__0`, `y__0`)</EM>, the search direction is taken to be the gradient of <EM>f(x,y)</EM> at <EM>(`x__0`, `y__0`)</EM>. The step length is computed by line search, i.e. as the step length that maximizes <EM>f(x,y)</EM> along the gradient direction.<img src="/applications/images/app_image_blank_lg.jpg" alt="Steepest Ascent Method" align="left"/>This worksheet applies the gradient search method for multi-variable maximization problems.
