By Francisco Honorio
Maple, Inc. has launched Maple 8, the most advanced mathematical
and analytical software ever developed in the Maple system's
mathematical computation product line. Maple 8 is a mathematics
and visualization tool that offers professors, industry professionals,
and students the power to explore and visualize mathematical concepts,
develop technical applications, and share information with the Web
and Excel, MATLAB, external C, Fortran, and Java programs. Its worksheet
environment has customizable buttons, toolbars, menu bars, pop-up
menus, and many other elements designed to give users a greater
level of convenience and flexibility in creating professional reports,
presentations, and interactive technical documents. With more than
1,000 free downloadable Maple applications, tools, science and mathematics
course materials, and interactive tutorials available online for
educators and students, Maple 8 amplifies users' power and efficiency
in conducting scientific and mathematical-based projects. For additional

Novel Navigational Tool
Industries, Inc. recently introduced E*Core 1000, the company's
latest development for streamlined, low-cost, fiber optic gyros
(FOGs), or gyroscopes. E*Core 1000 minimizes the use of expensive
optical and electronic components necessary for constructing optical
gyros and reduces the number of steps necessary to assemble optical
circuits. The low noise and high bandwidth capabilities of the product
are essential to navigation, rotation sensing, robotics, automated
guided vehicles, and stabilization applications. E*Core FOGs are
available with either digital or analog output, have no moving parts
to wear out, and are insensitive to vibration and linear acceleration.
