THE MATHWORKS, WATERLOO MAPLE SOFTWARE ENTER STRATEGIC ALLIANCE

 NATICK, Mass. and WATERLOO, Ont., Feb. 8 /PRNewswire/ -- The MathWorks, Inc. and Waterloo Maple Software (WMS) today announced a strategic marketing and development alliance designed to produce an unprecedented technical computing environment. This advancement, based on both companies' flagship products -- MATLAB and Maple V -- will bring together the best in symbolic mathematics and the best innumeric computation to dramatically expand the computing capabilities of engineers, scientists, mathematicians, educators, and other technical professionals.
 MATLAB, developed by The MathWorks, is the most powerful interactive numeric computation environment available today, providing a broad range of mathematical functions, numeric and matrix computation, sparse matrix support, visualization capabilities, sound output, graphical user interface controls, and more.
 Maple V, developed by Waterloo Maple Software, is a comprehensive mathematical software package for performing symbolic and numeric computations. It offers more than 2,500 functions for all levels of computation, from exploratory learning in math education to research problems in quantum chemistry. Maple V also provides an open architecture that lets users see how results are determined.
 "Our two firms will jointly answer the computing needs of all technical users," said Ron Neumann, chief executive officer of WMS. "We will combine the theoretical and practical foundation needed in the world of academia, with the application-specific tools and industrial- strength performance demanded by the technical professional, to create an advanced computing solution. We will do this without any compromise to the numeric or symbolic excellence our users have come to expect from MATLAB and Maple V," he said.
 According to John N. Little, president of The MathWorks, "The MathWorks and Waterloo Maple Software are well regarded for the quality, robustness and accuracy of their products in numeric and symbolic computation and visualization. By ot compromising on any capability -- speed, application-specific tools, breadth of functionality, accuracy or ease of use -- we will leverage off our respective strengths to provide a complete technical computing solution."
 Waterloo Maple Software is a private company founded in 1988 to market, distribute and support MAPLE symbolic math software. The Maple software program was created in 1980 when Professors Gaston Gonnet and Keith Geddes of the University of Waterloo in Waterloo, Ontario, Canada joined together to produce the first symbolic math software product for minicomputers. Maple V is currently used by more than 100,000 engineers, scientists, mathematicians and students worldwide, and installations include some of the most prestigious universities in the world. Maple V is available for many UNIX platforms, Microsoft Windows, DOS, Macintosh, NeXT, VAX/VMS, and AmigaDOS systems.
 The MathWorks, Inc., based in Natick, Mass., develops, markets and supports high-performance software for interactive numeric computation, visualization and dynamic system simulation. The MathWorks' products are used worldwide by more than 100,000 users at leading commercial and government research laboratories and organizations, as well as at hundreds of educational institutions. MATLAB is available for MS-DOS, Apple Macintosh; Sun, HP, Digital, IBM, and Silicon Graphics workstations; VAX/VMS computers; and Convex and Cray supercomputers.
