Mathworks buy Mupad!

October 21st, 2008 | Categories: Uncategorized | Tags:

I can’t beleive I missed this one! I knew that Mathworks were ditching Maple in favour of MuPad for their symbolic toolbox but I didn’t realise that they liked it so much that they bought the company. I wonder how this is going to affect other products, such as Mathcad and Scientific Workplace, that have adopted MuPad as a symbolic engine? Will Mathworks continue to license the technology to their competitors or will the likes of Mathcad have to find an alternative?

    Dear Mike,
    I’ve read this news here for the 1st time. As a user of Scientific Workplace there is a possibility of having to find a replacement in future updates of the MuPad computer algebra engine built in it.
