Abstract: Differential equations are playing more and more important role in modern science and technologies, engineering. On solving and integrability analysis of differential equations, our research group developed a dozen different off-line related software based on Maple. On the basis of these Maple packages, Maple and some open-source technologies, an online automated computing platform for equations called Emathema was proposed and implemented. Emathema can provide convenient and efficient online computing and graphing services for users. On this platform, users can not only solve nonlinear algebraic and differential equations using external Maple packages, but also execute almost all simple symbolic computations related to equations in the interactive mode. For each input, Emathema outputs the computing result visually.

Key words: symbolic computation, online computing platform, Maple package, differential equation
