What is PolyMath
POLYMATH is a proven computational system that has been specifically created for educational or professional use. The various POLYMATH programs allow the user to apply effective numerical analysis techniques during interactive problem solving on personal computers. Results are presented graphically for easy understanding and for incorporation into papers and reports. Engineers, mathematicians, scientists, students, or anyone with a need to solve problems will appreciate the efficiency and speed of problem solution.
PolyMath utilizes a color-coded full-screen editor. All displays have been optimized for user efficiency. Also provided with Polymath 6.1 is the UNIQUE capability to automatically export any POLYMATH problem to Excel with a single keypress. Thus problems can be solved completely in Polymath or exported to ExcelTM for solution. A POLYMATH ODE_Solver Add-In is included for solving ordinary differential equations in Excel. Automatic export to Excel includes all intrinsic functions and logical variables. Ordered equations can also be provided to assist with optional MatlabTM solutions of POLYMATH problems.
PolyMath PC also has an option to automatically create and export PolyMath problems to Excel as working spreadsheets. Problems can be solved completely in PolyMath PC or a problem can be exported to Excel and in the process can automatically yield a working stand-alone Excel spreadsheet. In problems involving nonlinear equations, the Excel Add-In called 'Solver' that must be installed for use in the Excel spreadsheet for solving the nonlinear equations. For systems of ordinary differential equations, PolyMath Software has developed and provides an Excel Add-In called ODE_Solver.xla. This Add-in must be installed from the installed PolyMath PC software into the Excel software, and the details are discussed in the link below. This useful Add-in can also be used as stand-alone in Excel to effectively solve systems of differential equations with popular algorithms.
