Main Question or Discussion Point

I'm an ME grad student and I'm in an upper-level dynamics class. It has become apparent that I'm going to want to use a symbolic solver. I'm familiar with MATLAB, but I hear that this is not MATLAB's forte. I also have MathCad, Maple, and Mathematica available to me. Which is the best for this application and why? Which software do you recommend based on the previously mentioned criteria as well as ease of use and how commonly it is used in industry?


Thank you for your comments.

I prefer Mathematica. It carried me through graduate dynamics.
