Create a subdirectory, e.g. `/maplev4/math`. Copy the files `maple.ind` and
`maple.lib` to that subdirectory.

**Do not** copy them to the `/lib` subdirectory, as this would overwrite the main
Maple Library and help files of the same names and thus you would need to reinstall Maple.

Change `libname` so that Maple can find the package procedures:

> libname := `c:/maplev4/math`, libname: # in DOS-based systems
> libname := `/usr/bin/maplev4/math`, libname: # in UNIX/Linux

You might put an entry to your Maple initialization file `maple.ini`(DOS) or
`.mapleinit` (UNIX/Linux).
Note that since the math package contains modified main Maple Library
functions, you may not want them to take effect. So in this case append
the path to the `math directory` after that of the main Maple Library
subdirectory:

> libname := libname, `c:/maplev4/math`:

or
> libname := libname, `/usr/bin/maplev4/math`:

#### Initalization and help:

Type
> with(math):

to load the short forms of the package procedures.
Each package procedure is described in a separate help page. Type

> ?math; # for general help,
> ?math, updates; # for information on updates/changes,
> ?math, <function> # for information on a special math function.

A special demo Maple worksheet for package math is included in this
distribution: `mathdemo.ms` for R3 and `mathdemo.mws` for R4, R5, and R6.
