I am a Maple 15 Student Edition user on both Windows and Linux. I wonder if it is possible to see the actual command send to Maple when I click on a particular entry in the right click context menu. If it is possible to do so, how can I have it displayed in document/worksheet mode? Does it matter if I am inputting in 1D or 2D?

Thanks in advance

How can I plot a volume (many surfaces) in X,Y, Z axis where X,Y,Z are functions in 4 variables (a,b,c,d), and the domain for the 4 variables are 

-90<=a>=90, -10<=b>=10, -12<=c>=12, -90<=d>=0,


X := proc (a, b, c, d) options operator, arrow; 324.*cos(b)*sin(c)*cos(d)+324.*sin(b)*sin(d)+323.5*cos(b)*sin(c) end procX := proc (a, b, c, d) options operator, arrow; 324.*cos(b)*sin(c)*cos(d)+324.*sin(b)*sin(d)+323.5*cos(b)*sin(c) end proc

Y := proc (a, b, c, d) options operator, arrow; (324*1.*sin(a)*sin(b)*sin(c)+324*1.*cos(a)*cos(c))*cos(d)+(-1)*324.*sin(a)*cos(b)*sin(d)+323.5*sin(a)*sin(b)*sin(c)+323.5*cos(a)*cos(c)-100 end proc

Y := proc (a, b, c, d) options operator, arrow; (324*1.*sin(a)*sin(b)*sin(c)+324*1.*cos(a)*cos(c))*cos(d)+(-1)*324.*sin(a)*cos(b)*sin(d)+323.5*sin(a)*sin(b)*sin(c)+323.5*cos(a)*cos(c)-100 end proc

According to this site,"It is known that every even number can be written as a sum of at most six primes".

i wanted to test this using maple.

> PF := proc (a::integer)

> local cst,obj,res;
> cst := add(x[i], i = 1 .. numtheory:-pi(prevprime(a))) <= 6;
> obj := add(x[i]*ithprime(i), i = 1 .. numtheory:-pi(prevprime(a)))-a;
> res := Optimization:-LPSolve(obj, {cst ,obj>=0}, assume={nonnegative,integer}); end proc:
> PF(30);
[0, [x[1] = 0, x[2] = 0, x[3] = 6, x[4] = 0, x[5] = 0, x[6] = 0,x[7] = 0, x[8] = 0, x[9] = 0, x[10] = 0]]

the third prime is 5 and 6 of them make 30. as an aside, it would be nice to know how to get maple to output "30 = 6x5".

this is obviously pretty limited, because 30 can be written as the sum of two primes (7+23 and 11+19) [GOLDBACH], but using DS's GlobalSearch for all solutions takes a long time to compute. also I have to nominate the highest prime.

any suggestions?


How do I interpolate using polar coordinates?  I have a series with non-uniform spacing, that I want to map onto a uniform space polar grid.

Any assistance would be appreciated.

Hello every one,

I had a 3 equations with 3 unknown (X,Y,Z, conjugate(Y),conjugate(Z))

this is the code:

solve( {ao*x + a1*y + conjugate(a1)*conjugate(y)+a2*z+conjugate(a2)*conjugate(z) = 0.5, conjugate(a1)*x + bo*y + conjugate(a2)*conjugate(y)+a1*z = 0, 10*x + 10*y/4 + 10*z = 10}, {x, y, z});

where the coefficients are complex numbers

Is thee any simple way to solve it


Hi experts,

the standard resolution for maple contourplots is 72 dpi wich is not suitable for publication purposes. I need at least a resolution between 500 - 1000 dpi. How do I get better resolutions for my contourplots when exporting them to .bmp or .jpg-files?
Somebody any ideas?

Level: Idiot (Me)

I have a matrix of 3 columns and lots of rows M

  • First column is latitude in degrees
  • Second column is longitude in degrees
  • Third column is data

So I set lambda:=M(..,1) and phi_g:=M(..,2) giving me two column vectors.

I want to convert lambda and phi_g to polar coordinates theta and phi

theta:=90-lambda produces "Error, (in rtable/Sum) invalid arguments"


I also want to convert phi_g to phi where phi=phi_g when phi_g is 0...180 and phi=phi_g +360 when phi_g <0

How do I create a conditional function like this?

i am trying to export an animated gif file but the export windows freezes and exports an empty file with zero bytes

the animation was created by: display(map(p, convert(A(() .. (), 2), list)), insequence = true)

i have tried to give maple some time (2-3 hours) and i even tried to restart the computer and lauch maple and try to export it but it didnt worked

how can i export it or how can i plot the using commands


I am using Maple 15 to numerically solve a system of differential algebraic euqations (DAE) with given initial conditions, and I've tried rfk45_dae and rosenbrock_dae solver, but both solver responded in error like this


Error, (in dsolve/numeric) cannot numerically solve complex DAE initial value problems, the system must be converted to a real system


I don't understand what is a real system, and how could i convert it to a real system.



i am using maple to solve a system of ordinary differential equations , 3 unknows (x,y, x ), and 3 equations (dx/dt,dy/dt,dz/dt)

there is one known variable denpendent on x and z

# code begins here

if x(t) <= z(t) then Q(t) := 8 end if;

if x(t) > z(t) then Q(t) := 10 end if;


eq1 := diff(x(t), t) = 3*x(t)-1;

eq2 := diff(y(t), t) = y(t)+Q(t);

eq3 := diff(z(t), t) = z(t);

eqs := {eq1, eq2, eq3};


# code ends here


above i put the system of ODEs, the code maybe illegal in maple, but i wrote in this way to make it clear.

Q is dependent on x and z.


in the past, when i was trying to solve ODEs, normally, eqs contains with only x,y,z as unknowns. but in this eqs, clearly, Q is included as an unknown. 


i've tried to use piecewise function to express Q(t), but failed.


how could i solve a system like this? thanks 



Hello! I have written a code to solve 1D heat equation with Neumann B.C. using explicit method. But there is a problem with plot. I don't understant, what's wrong. Help me, please. I will be very grateful. The code is attached here.

i have a non linear equation that depends on three variables e, theta and z.

i have done calculations to calculate e while varying theta and z. theta varied among the vector [0, Pi/4, Pi/3, Pi/2] and z was varying between 1 and 20

when plotting my data it gives the following plot where z is represented on the x-axis and each curve correspond to one theta


i am currently able of fitting one plot to one equation i would like to fit the data points using the nonlinearfit function and to only get one equation for all the plots. is that possible in maple or not



Why do the first two of the following 4 examples not work in Maple 15?

subs(m=21,`mod`(m, 4));
subs(m=21,m mod(4));
`mod`(21, 4);
21 mod(4);

Is there a (simple) workaround?


I have a table of data arranged in the following columns: Year, Jan, Feb, Mar,..,Dec in Excel or csv

I would like to import this data into a time series in Maple so I can plot the result.

What is the simplest way of doing this?


Here is a problem I have with the Nabla operator:

I am working on a demonstration involving Maxwell's equations:

Setup(mathematicalnotation = true);
# Maxwell's eqn
M4 := `&x`(Nabla, B1_(x, y, z, t)) = mu*epsilon*(diff(E1_(x, y, z, t), t));

eval(subs(B1_(x,y,z,t)=Bxx(x,y,z,t)*_i+Bzz(x,y,z,t)*_k,M4)); # transverse magnetic field, no longitudinal (j) component

# Ok, this one is as expected.

eval(subs(B1_(x,y,z,t)=Bxx(x,y,z,t)*_i+Bzz(x,y,z,t)*_k,M4)) assuming real;

# Hmm... why is this zero?

eval assuming real seems to make them all zero. In this little example, Bxx and Bzz are just arbitrary functions and therefore the result cannot be zero in general. The bother here is that I later use a parametrization of the field (the Bxx and Bzz) which in fact does make curl(B) = 0. I wanted Maple to demonstrate that the parametrization does that, but it appears i can make the result zero for any B-field, which sort-of defeats the purpose. If I don't assume real, with the other parametrization Maple isn't getting anywhere...

So, how can I get correct results while declaring variables to be real when they are... ?
