Is there a difference between scoping rules for regular procedures and for arrow operators?


Vectors are defined by a lenth and an angle.

The arrow command wants me to give it a starting point and an endpoint in coordinates, for example:



gu := arrow([5, 10], [15, 20], .2, .4, .1, color = green)

I'm dealing with vectors from electrical circuits, so the information I have would be the lenth of the vector, and an angle given in degrees (which I could convert to radians if needed for the plot).

The goal is to plot all the vectors in the circuit on the same display so that it can be seen how they are in relation to each other, and to visualise the solution. This means I would need to find out the endpoint of the arrows to start the next arrow at that location with its angle in reference to the same axis. Does it make sence? I'm not sure about the wording of this.

Here's a picture of a calculated vector lenth and angle:

So, the -45 degrees would need to be in reference to the y-axis for example, then the next vector can be placed at lets say perpendicular in reference to the vector sol_1, starting at its endpoint.

The only other way I have to draw this, excluding doing it by hand, is using the object tools from microsoft word, and to be honset I dislike using word for math stuff. I would much rather learn the syntax for Maple to do this.


I hope someone knows what I mean, Please ask if somethig is unclear,








Hello everyone,

I want to inseret a text arrow in the graph obtained by plot command to show increasing or decreasing trends of the graph, but I could not find any option to insert the textarrow or textbox in the graph. 

Thanks in advance.

So this is my minimal working code. Everything works, but I cannot get the arrow size fixed you can see the animation propperly. Adding wid=1/2 gives an error message.

I have a nice procedure that is as follows, that explores the behaviour of a mapping in R^2.

InversePoincare := proc (v) options operator, arrow; v*Norm(v, 2)/(1-Norm(v, 2)^2) end proc

SphereVectorPlot := proc (T, radius, radiusIncrements, angleIncrements, lengthParam)
local listOfPairs;
listOfPairs := {seq(seq([[radius*r*cos(2*angle*Pi/angleIncrements)/radiusIncrements, radius*r*sin(2*angle*Pi/angleIncrements)/radiusIncrements], T(InversePoincare(`<,>`(radius*r*cos(2*angle*Pi/angleIncrements)/radiusIncrements, radius*r*sin(2*angle*Pi/angleIncrements)/radiusIncrements)))-InversePoincare(`<,>`(radius*r*cos(2*angle*Pi/angleIncrements)/radiusIncrements, radius*r*sin(2*angle*Pi/angleIncrements)/radiusIncrements))], r = 0 .. radiusIncrements), angle = 0 .. angleIncrements)};
if lengthParam = false then
 return arrow(listOfPairs, scaling = constrained, shape = arrow)
 return arrow(listOfPairs, length = lengthParam, scaling = constrained, shape = arrow)
end if
end proc

Essentially, we plot vectors v at location u. Since the vectors v in general vary wildly in magnitude, I would like to visualize the magnitude change by using color and/or transparency, preferably the latter. Is it possible to do so, and if so, how?

I'd like to plot the differences between terms in a sequence of vectors. Each difference term should start at the end of the last difference term, so that if I was to plot the actual term, the vector would meet at the end of the difference term. The sequence is limited in length and stored as a list.


Suppose I have  [<1,1>,<2,2>,<3,3>]. The difference terms would thus be [<1,1>,<1,1>,<1,1>]. The first difference term would be plotted be plotted from <0,0>, the second starting at <1,1>, the third at <2,2>.

I can compute the difference terms, but I am not sure how to make the plot I desire. Is arrow(...) the answer, somehow?

Every time I try to solve for a variable it gives me an arrow.

ex solve(5.6*10^-4=((x)(x))/(0.2-x),x)

gives me

x -> 7/62500 - 7/12500 x

How do I get it to stop giving me the x -> ?

Or at least reset some options so I don't have to reinstall the whole thing?

Hi, there i want to basically plot the graph attached. It is basically the graph y= 2x^2 transformed to y = x^2. I can plot them, but how do they get the arrows showing the transformation and the arrows on the axis. Any help would be appreciated.


Hi, how would you add arrowheads to the x and y-axis to show that they continue.


I'm trying to display a cross product in a 3d plot, as an arrow.  I'm using LinearAlgebra[CrossProduct] and the arrow command from plots.  The arrow command takes vectors in angle brackets, but it won't take the output of CrossProduct.  


I'm also confused because there seem to be two different arrow commands, one in plots and one in plottools.  If you have read in both of these libraries which one will be used?  I can't seem to...

I have a function related to some values and I want to include the value in the title.  So I initially try ...

plot(sine(1, 2, 0, t), t = 0 .. 1, title = cat(freq, " sine wave cycles"))

but once I use the value in the function it is not remembered, sort of like a subs operation.  A placeholder is the simplest way.

plot(sine(1, a, 0, t), t = 0 .. 1, title = cat(a, " sine wave cycles"))

I have an animated spacecurve with arrow:


p4:=animate(arrow,[<cos(tend),sin(tend),0.9 tend>,<-cos(tend),-sin(tend),0>,color=red],tend=0..50,axes=boxed,frames=150);

I succeed in putting text at basis of arrow:

l3:=animate(textplot3d,[[cos(tend),sin(tend), 0.9 tend, 'basis'],color=black,align={BELOW},font=[TIMES,ROMAN,14]],tend=0..50,frames=150);

I like tot put text at the end of the arrow. This is my 'progress':

Dear Maple users,

Is there a way to describe derivatives treated as binary operators in infix notation, in which the derivatives is applied either to the left or right operands. This is useful, for example, when defining generalizations of the Poisson bracket. For a pair of functions f and g, the left and right derivatives are respectively defined as

Is there a way to type commands in Maple to attach arrows to the graphs without using the plot functionality that is built-in? My professor is asking me to plot a graph and then attach arrows to it. 

There is a flaw (bug) in the DEplot routine.  If you load the plottools package before using DEplot with the arrows=line option, the DEplot routine tries to use the line definition from the plottools package.  A worksheet illustrating this problem is below.
