Hi all,

I have a problem with dsolve. I have a 2-d (thin shell) theory which I am solving with Maple. For a Simply supported beam, there is no problem, it solution is more or less what you would expect. When I make 1 side as a clamped edge (x=0), there is a problem. The total result is 'ok', but it gives a peak in the 2nd derivative of Urn at x=0. This peak results in unrealistic stresses, etc.

I don't exactly know what the problem is. It seems there is a problem...

I have a numerical procedure that reads data from a file and builds a composition of maps from the half-plane to the slit half-plane.  Maple does not deal with this very well symbolically.  I want to use the complex values from this function as a vector field and plot some integral curves.  The 'mystery' function below is a stand-in for the real thing*

I can get DEplot to at least show the vector field, but it fails mysteriously on drawing any curves,...


I'm searching for the third differential equation that will transform the following two equations non-autonomous system into a three equations autonomous one:




diff(z(t),t)= ...




with insequence=true command, first, the first option is showed, then second, then third and so on.. but i want to show all options from in grpah, then animate in sequence.

Hello, im a current user of Maple 16, i have a problem in finding a minimum of equation ( equation of a external work equating the internal energy dissipation) f= E-W ( im studying a slope stability with limit analysis)

the equation is:

I have a 3dplot of a certain procedure with the color specified by another procedure. 

The standard color range, from red to purple, does not look very good in my application. Is there a way to change the color range to for instance: light green to dark red?

Hey Forums!


Im using maple 16 for some rather simple Engineering calculatioins. One thing about using maple bothers me, and that is the way my result is displayed.


Here is an example

Here is another


Adding "simplify" or "evalf" sometimes does the trick, but id really like...

Does any one know how to derive this model in Maple?



I've bought NAG C Library for my mac in order to use it in Maple.

However, it seems that Maple doesn't know where to search for it.
Indeed, it returns

Error, (in NAG:-h03abc) external linking: error loading external library libnagc_nag.dylib: dlopen(libnagc_nag.dylib, 129): image not found 

I've installed NAG C Library in usr/Library


Thank you very much for your help 

I have a command in Maple that looks like

I have managed to download data for Nasdaq, NYSE and Amex in Maple. However,
my problem is how do I store the data in a txt file on my desktop in the most optimal way.
I want an mpl file so I can schedul the task manager to run the file each day in the background.
This is as far as I have come:


CSV := proc (Url) local theDLL, URLDownloadToFile, myDirectory, myFile, Destination, DL;


Hello, I am trying to solve the following BVP,

Eq1 := -mu0*M*(diff(theta(eta), eta))*exp(-M*theta(eta))*abs(diff(f(eta), eta))^m*(diff(f(eta), eta))

+mu0*exp(-M*theta(eta))*(m+1)*abs(diff(f(eta), eta))^m*(diff(f(eta), eta, eta))+theta(eta) = 0;

Eq2 := G*(diff(theta(eta), eta, eta))+mu0*exp(-M*theta(eta))*abs(diff(f(eta), eta))^(m+2) = 0;

bc := f(-1) = 0, f(1) = 0, theta(-1) =0.5, theta(1) = -0.5;

m:=-0.3 (or 0.3) :M:=1:mu0:=0.5:G:=3:

How to update this code to the Statistic Package for the graph below?for n from 1 to 15 do num:=convert(evalf(n), string): tracker[n]:=textplot([18,0.3,`Lambda is `.num],color=blue): H[n]:=ProbHist(PoissonPDF(n,x),0..25,26): N[n]:=plot(NormalPDF(n,n,x),x = 0..25):  P[n]:=display({H[n],N[n],tracker[n]}): od: display([seq(P[n], n=1..15)], insequence=true,title="Normal Approx. to the Poisson. Lambda is increasing from 1 to 15");

I am trying to solve a problem using fsolve. Where the fsolve is inside the integral. I keep getting the following message. Here is what I am trying to do 



where Q is a normal distribution and R is also normally distributed with its parameter conditional on Q. Following is the error message that I get.

"Error, (in fsolve) z is in the equation, and is not solved for"


I am having some problem with this procedure located in the "experiment" sub section.
I am trying to calculate the win probability in a poker game pre flop ie each player
get two cards. I am trying to find out which two card combination will result in the
highest probability of winning in the end.

In the first example I simply assume that player 1 gets [DA, HA] ie dimond ace
