Symbolic Engine Enhancements
Updates and enhancements to the Symbolic engine in PTC Mathcad Prime 9.0.0.0
User Interface Location: Click Math > Operators and Symbols > Symbolics
Benefits and Description:
PTC Mathcad Prime 9.0.0.0 continues to enhance the symbolic engine. The following updates and enhancements have been made:
Symbolic Solving of ODEs
Symbolic solving of Ordinary Differential Equations with full support for first order ODEs and partial support for higher order ODEs. You can now solve linear forms of ODEs and ODEs that you can reduce to linear form.
Logarithmic Integral Functions
Adding all new Logarithmic integral functions to the Symbolic Functions category, including:
li(x) — logarithmic Integral function
Li(x) — offset logarithmic integral function
Elliptic Integral Functions
Adding all new Elliptic integral functions to the Symbolic Functions category, including:
ellipticF(z, m) - incomplete elliptic integral of the first kind
ellipticK(m) - complete elliptic integral of the first kind
ellipticE(z, m) - incomplete elliptic integral of the second kind
ellipticE(m) - complete elliptic integral of the second kind
ellipticPi(z, n, m) - incomplete elliptic integral of the third kind
ellipticPi(n, m) - complete elliptic integral of the third kind
Symbolic Solve Block (find)
You can now symbolically solve a system of equations using the find function in solve blocks. If it is possible to solve, the solution is given in terms of variable names.
Symbolic Assumption on Function
Like in existing variable assumptions, you can now make assumptions about a function result using the assume keyword.
Definite Integral with complex limits
Symbolically evaluate definite integrals with complex boundaries.
Improvements to Calculus Operators
Improved performance and added supported use cases for calculus operators, including:
Derivative
Limits
Integrals, including integral performance in some cases
Summation
