However, this does not work.

My problem is not to plot U as a function of time, but somehow convert the function.

I mean, in Your solution U is defined through X(t) and thus Maple is evaluating the solution for DE every time the U is called.

However I would like to have U as function of t without precense of X(t). Since X(t) is a known procedure, there might be the way to explicitly define U as a function of t only, after the evlauation of procedure X(t).

Hi all,

A while ago, I had asked a question relating to calling to an MapleSim .msim simulation within maple .mw worksheet. (Thank you Acer! :) I got it working but then another issue just popped up...The basic structure is as follows:


A := MapleSim:-LinkModel('filename' = "TriplePendulum_WORKS_v2.msim")

for z from 1 to 50 do



how can i install the DirectSearch optimization package for mac version (MAPLE 15)?


HI experts,

can anyone here help mi in transform a Mathematica v8.0 sheet into maple v.15 ?

I am still maple novice.

Thanks a lot

Hey everyone.

I have been trying to solve an ODE with BC with dsolve,numeric but always get the error below:

> Error, (in dsolve/numeric/BVPSolve) matrix is singular

My problem is not solving it (ie fine to do with LinearAlgebra package or similar), but why does this error occur? What is the problem with the ODE/BC that produces this error?

And is there a way of adjusting the ODE/BC to be able to solve it simply by using dsolve,numeric?

I've made exam questions for students that they have to answer by doing some calculations in Maple.

I would like to let them copy the commands they used to a Maple TA text field.

However, the standard worksheet in our computer lab uses 2-D math. Copying this 2-D math to Maple TA works fine with "paste as plain text", but copying 1-D math also works with ctrl-v in Maple TA, which is more convenient for students under stress.

Since I am not allowed change...

Hi there

I'm a new user of Maple 15 and would really appreciate some tips on how to get started, this time more specifically on how to change the axis orientation. I'm a geotechnical engineer and in practice we always plot all the soil properties (strength, density, water content, etc) with depth, and so it should be positive downwards. 

I've seen a few posts where the issue was raised by some people years ago but was just curious to know if the new version...



I want to create a Textbox which will be opened in the beginning of a Maple code. In this Textbox I want to write an integer, which will be used for a following calculation.

I already found this code:


> restart; with(Maplets[Elements]);
print(`output redirected...`); # input placeholder
> maplet := Maplet([["Insert Text", BoxCell(TextBox['IB1'](1 .. 10))], [Button("OK", Shutdown(['IB1'])), Button("Cancel", Shutdown())]]);

Suppose that you wish to animate the whole view of a plot. By whole view, I mean that it includes the axes and is not just a rotation of a plotted object such as a surface.

One simple way to do this is to call plots:-animate (or plots:-display on a list of plots supplied in a list, with its `insequence=true` option). The option `orientation` would contain the parameter that governs the animation (or generates the sequence).

But that entails recreating the same plot each time. The plot data might not even change. The key thing that changes is the ORIENTATION() descriptor within each 3d plot object in the reulting data structure. So this is inefficient in two key ways, in the worst case scenario.

1) It may even compute the plot's numeric results, as many times as there are frames in the resulting animation.

2) It stores as many instances of the grid of computed numeric data as there are frames.

We'd like to do better, if possible, reducing down to a single computation of the data, and a single instance of storage of a grid of data.

To keep this understandable, I'll consider the simple case of plotting a single 3d surface. More complicated cases can be handled with revisions to the techniques.

Avoiding problem 1) can be done in more than one way. Instead of plotting an expression, a procedure could be plotted, where that procedure has `option remember` so that it automatically stores computed results an immediately returns precomputed stored result when the arguments (x and y values) have been used already.

Another way to avoid problem 1) is to generate the unrotated plot once, and then to use plottools:-rotate to generate the other grids without necessitating recomputation of the surface. But this rotates only objects in the plot, and does alter the view of the axes.

But both 1) and 2) can be solved together by simply re-using the grid of computed data from an initial plot3d call, and then constructing each frame's plot data structure component "manually". The only thing that has to change, in each, is the ORIENTATION(...) subobject.

At 300 frames, the difference in the following example (Intel i7, Windows 7 Pro 64bit, Maple 15.01) is a 10-fold speedup and a seven-fold reduction is memory allocation, for the creation of the animation structure. I'm not inlining all the plots into this post, as they all look the same.





                                1.217, 25685408





                                0.125, 3538296

By creating the entire animation data structure manually, we can get a further factor of 3 improvement in speed and a further factor of 3 reduction in memory allocation.






                                0.046, 1179432                            

Unfortunately, control over the orientation is missing from Plot Components, otherwise such an "animation" could be programmed into a Button. That might be a nice functionality improvement, although it wouldn't be very nice unless accompanied by a way to export all a Plot Component's views to GIF (or mpeg!).

The above example produces animations each of 300 frames. Here's a 60-frame version:

Write a procedure, primesum, whose input is a positive integer n and whose output is the sum of all primes p such that p is less than or equal to n. You may use th built-in procedure isprime.

Maple 15 Crashes...

January 22 2012 Vesnog 45


I have purchased Maple 15 Student Edition 2 months ago. My problem is that when I click the button under the text "To obtain a complete annotated solution, click:" Maple crashes. This happens in the browse tasks window accessed through Tools>Tasks>Browse. In addition to this issue, the interactive commands does not seem to work. How can resolve these issues? I am running a 64-bit version of Maple 15 under Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit.

Any help is appreciated.

DEQ from Transfer Function...

Dear Forum,

I have a rational transfer function, like


With the DynamicSystems package, Maple can compute a state space representation, but I want a single DEQ in y(t) of 3rd order. What is the best way to let Maple compute this?


Equation of a plane...

Write the equation of a pane (P) which passes through the point E(2,1,0) and F(1,2,1) such that distance from the point A(1,-2,-1) to the plane (P) twice distance from the point B(2,4,3) to the plane (P).

My main idea is based on, if the line (d) passes through...

I wrote a program in order to find coordinates orthocenter of the triangle. Please comment for me. This is my code:













Hi there. 

I'm making some 2D contour plots and am desperate to know what the values are which are assigned to the different contour levels. e.g., a red band must be reading value 120 (say) and an orange one 80, but how can I get this and show it on a legend in the plot? It's crucial to the value of the plot. 

Many thanks for any help!
