So I am brand new to using Maple and am trying to solve a system of ODE's. When I try and use dsolve however I reciever the error "function expected" and I am not sure why. The code I have is as follows


sys_ode := diff(A(t), t) = a*(A(t)+B(t))-b1*A(t)*(C(t)+D(t))-g1*A(t)*B(t), diff(B(t), t) = -b2*B(t)*(C(t)+D(t))+g1*A(t)*B(t), diff(C(t), t) = e*(b1*A(t)+b2*B(t))*C(t)-g2*b2*C(t)*B(t)-g3*C(t)*D(t), diff(D(t), t) = g2*b2*C(t)*D(t)-m*D(t)



I'm sure it is something simple, but I just can't seem to figure out where the issue is. Any help is much appreciated.

I'm trying to substitute one Differential equation into another differential equation.


eq1:=d*n(t)/dt = (rho(t)-beta)*n(t)/Lambda+lambda*C(t)+q

eq2:=diff(eq1, t)

resulting in -> eq2 := d*(diff(n(t), t))/dt = (diff(rho(t), t))*n(t)/Lambda+(rho(t)-beta)*(diff(n(t), t))/Lambda+lambda*(diff(C(t), t))

then I'm given that (diff(C(t), t)) is given by another equation: 

eq3:=d*C(t)/dt = beta*n(t)/Lambda-lambda*C(t)


At this point I'm trying to substitute equation 3 into equation 2 for diff(C(t),t)

eq4 := subs(diff(C(t), t) = rhs(eq2), eq5)


however no matter what way's I try this I get an error: 

Error, (in simpl/reloprod) invalid terms in product: (d*(diff(n(t), t))/dt = (diff(rho(t), t))*n(t)/Lambda+(rho(t)-beta)*(diff(n(t), t))/Lambda+lambda*(diff(C(t), t)))^-1


I then tried to map it but again i got an error specifically about the first parameter: 

Error, invalid operator parameter name

eq5:=map((d/dt C(t))->beta/Lambda*n(t)-lambda*C(t),eq2)


I'm just wondering if what I am trying to do is even possible in Maple? 

If anyone can help I would greatly appreciate it! 

Hello ..


I need codes bifurcation and cobweb for logistic map by maple ..


can you help me ?




Thanks ...

I am trying to recreate journal work for validating using another computer program so I am trying to use maple to solve the ODE, based on further research I found using laplace might be the best but I am having some trouble.


eq8:=d*(n(t)+C(t))/drho = -rho(t)/(l*alpha*K_c)

given the initial conditions of:

ICs:= n(0) = n_0, rho(0) = rho_0, C(0) = (beta-rho_0)*n_0/(l*lambda)


equation9 := dsolve({equation8, ICs}, {C(t), n(t)}, method = laplace)


Following this process I get the error: 

Error, (in dsolve) invalid initial condition


According to the journal work the solution I am looking for is: 



is there something that I'm doing wrong or missing? 

Any help would be greatly Appreciated!

I need your help .. I solve a system and I get the error Warning, solutions may have been lost.

The maple code is attached.

Thank you for your help.


hi everyone , i need your point of view in my question,any help would be appreciated in advance .

we have a discrete function named g(t) and a continous function f(t) in in convolution integral just like this :
int(f(t-x)*g(x),x=0..t) ; 
we have just g(x) in some special points int the interval (0..t) , thus i need to convert this integral to a series.
how should i do this ? can anyone help or any idea ? i need at first a mathematical solution or idea about how to do this and then, how to do this in a software ?
tnx again.

I am trying to define some functions by recursion relations but I get this error:

Error, (in type/realcons) too many levels of recursion

Please see the attached file for details:


Eq2 := diff(T(y), y, y)+(diff(sigma(y), y))*(diff(T(y), y))+(diff(T(y), y))^2+(exp(-y)

+exp(y))^2 = 0;

Eq3 := diff(sigma(y), y, y)+(diff(T(y), y, y))= 0;



This give me nothing. Please help me out. 



Dear all:

hello everybody;

I need your help to solve the system f(x,y)=0, and g(x,y)=0, such that there some parameter in the system, also all the parameter are positive and also our unkowns  x and y are also positive.

I try to write this code. I feel that under some condition we can have four solution or three or two. I need your help. Many thinks.

using LeadingMonomials(f, lexdeg([s],[x,y]));

f:=[y^2+2*x^2*y, y^2];



LeadingMonomial(g[1], lexdeg([s],[x,y]));
LeadingMonomial(g[2], lexdeg([s],[x,y]));
LeadingMonomial(g[1], lexdeg([s],[y,x]));

no result is (0,y^2)

where is wrong?


I`ve written this program:

It determines the power of the Ithfactor, only one problem. When I try to compute the factor of 512 I get 2_2 (subscript) which is extremly stupid. I want to know how I can change my program so that it can give the power of every ith factor. Thanks!

If I want to make a display of data, say 2 columns of data, with a heading on top of each column, how would one go about this in Maple? This will be for display purposes only (say for final result of a homework result, etc..)  

In Mathematica, I use the Grid command. I am not sure how to do this in Maple. I could not find Grid like command in Maple.

I can generate the data in 2 sequences  in Maple, but need to insert a heading, and also need to insert frame around eveything.

Here is an example:

    #data = [[0, 0, 0], [1, 1, 1], [2, 4, 8], [3, 9, 27], [4, 16, 64], [5, 25, 125]]

The above data has 3 columns, 6 rows. I need to insert first row also called {"index","f","g"} and then display all in nice table form. This is how I would do the above in Mathematica to give idea of what I looking for

f[x_] := x^2;
g[x_] := x^3;
data = Table[{i, f[i], g[i]}, {i, 0, 5}]
    (* {{0, 0, 0}, {1, 1, 1}, {2, 4, 8}, {3, 9, 27}, {4, 16, 64}, {5, 25, 125}} *)

And this is below the part I do not know how to emulate in Maple:

data = Insert[data, {"i", "f(i)", "g(i)"}, 1]
    #   {{"i", "f(i)", "g(i)"}, {0, 0, 0}, {1, 1, 1}, {2, 4, 8}, {3, 9, 27}, {4, 16, 64}, {5, 25, 125}}
    # now use Grid to format with frame around everything
Grid[data, Frame -> All]
