This tutorial shows how to use Maple both as a calculator with instant access to hundreds of high-level math routines and as a programming language for more demanding tasks. It covers topics such as the basic data types and statements in the Maple language. It explains the differences between numeric computation and symbolic computation and illustrates how both are used in Maple. Extensive "how-to" examples are used throughout the tutorial to show how common types of calculations can be expressed easily in Maple.

This book provides an introduction to the theory and practice of Monte Carlo and
Simulation methods. It arises from a 20 hour course given simultaneously to two groups
of students. The first are final year Honours students in the School of Mathematics at the
University of Edinburgh and the second are students from Heriot Watt and Edinburgh
Universities taking the MSc in Financial Mathematics.
The intention is that this be a practical book that encourages readers to write and
experiment with actual simulation models.
Not long ago, a party of friends were sitting at luncheon in a suburb of London, when one of them happened
to make some reference to Maple Grove and Selina, and to ask in what county of England Maple Grove was
situated. Everybody immediately had a theory. Only one of the company (a French gentleman, not well
acquainted with English) did not recognise the allusion. A lady sitting by the master of the house (she will, I
hope, forgive me for quoting her words, for no one else has a better right to speak them) said, 'What a curious
sign it is of Jane Austen's...
