Mathcad 15 Features
Highlights of the enhancements in Mathcad 15.0 include:

Integration with Kornucopia software – Kornucopia by Bodie Technology, is designed to reduce time and effort spent on analysis by providing functions and templates using Mathcadbased documented workflows, that improves interpretations and value of experimental data and simulation results

Support for Microsoft Excel 2007 – Leverage the following functions and features with Excel: READEXCEL(), WRITEEXCEL(), READFILE, the data import wizard, and the Excel Addin
Computational Capabilities

Highend numerics  Perform summations, products, derivatives, integrals, and Boolean operations; apply trigonometric, exponential, hyperbolic, and other functions and transforms.

Live symbolics  Simplify, differentiate, integrate and transform expressions algebraically; Mathcad’s patented live symbolics technology automatically recalculates algebraic solutions and allows you to use them in subsequent calculations.

Statistical and data analysis  Generate random numbers or histograms, fit data to builtin and general functions, interpolate data, and build probability distribution models.

Units support  Include units in calculations, perform unit conversions,and automatically check dimensions. Add domainspecific units.Convert results to any unit system or custom values. Currency units effectively document engineering cost and economic evaluations.
Key Benefits of Using Mathcad

Design of Experiments (DoE)  Reduce the time and expense of conducting experiments through DoE by understanding the variable interactions that will influence the experiment. DoE helps identify critical factors and optimal settings for a complex process. It provides templates for fewer, yet more intelligent experiments which are indispensable when having multiple variables and levels.
