Enhanced Algebraic Computation

Version 10 adds numerous extensions and improvements to its already strong capabilities in algebraic computation. Faster methods for symbolic solutions of real polynomial systems as well as numerical solutions of general polynomial systems make many problems computationally tractable for the first time. New, dedicated functions automate computing function domain, range, and periodicity. Finally, new matrix tests, enhanced matrix solvers, and many under-the-hood enhancements make linear algebra faster and easier than ever.
