                            Nancy Blachman
                        Variable Symbols, Inc.

BMUG Math SIG Meeting at 7 pm on Monday, September 21, 1992

Maple and Mathematica are the two most popular computer algebra systems
on the market today.  Nancy Blachman will share with you her experience
and her opinions on the strengths and limitations of Maple and
Mathematica. She will answer questions such as:

How is Maple similar to Mathematica?  In what ways are the different?
What does Maple offer and who are the primary users of Maple? What can
Mathematica do and who is using it?  How should you decide which system
to use/purchase?

Nancy Blachman has been using Mathematica for the past four years.  She
is the author of the "Mathematica Quick Reference, Version 2"
(Addison-Wesley and Variable Symbols, 1992) and the tutorial book

"Mathematica:  A Practical Approach" (Prentice-Hall, 1992).  Recently
she started to use Maple.  She is writing the "Maple V Quick
Reference", a compact guide to Maple V, Release 2.

This presentation will be at the BMUG office at 2055 Center Street in
Berkeley.  The office is near the north west corner of Center Street
and Shattuck Ave. which is half a block from the Berkeley BART

Driving directions:
        Take the University exit off 80.
        Head east on University toward the UC Berkeley campus.
        Turn right at Shattuck (McDonalds will be at the corner.)
        Go 2 blocks.
        Turn right on Center and look for parking.
        I recommend the parking garage on the left, as  
        the one on the right closes at 8 pm.
