I would like to import the code from Pg 90 on in the following document into Maple. Any suggestions for doing so with minimal editing required after pasting?


Is there a way to convert this FDTD code into Maple

Hy(1 to M)=0;

Ex(1 to M+1)=0;

For t=1 to T,


For k=1 to M,



For k=2 to M,




Thanks in advance.

I ran into a problem mentioned here before: With lots of code in one execution group, the standard GUI editor becomes very slow at least in older versions of Maple (I have reason to believe that this is mostly fixed in Maple 17 and, presumably, newer). With one of my packages this has become enough of a problem to force me to deal with it (and Modules and Packages have to be all in one execution group). I have some machines that cannot go beyond Maple 15 so I keep my stuff compatible with it (so far not a big sacrifice).

The fix is rather easy: In the GUI, export the code as "Maple Input" which creates a file with extension .mpl. Then, in the GUI have a small file that uses "read" to read-in and execute the code (of the module). In my case, I have the necessary LibTools statement to save as a .mla right after the package code ends so, bingo, I have just updated the package. I edit the .mpl file in Emacs.

So I installed Joe Riel's Emacs mode maplev-mode.el. This works rather well. However, it took not long for it to show its age: it does not recognize the multi-line comments (*...*). This is kind-of bad as this forces me to not use quotes in the comments since they mess-up the keyword highlighting esp. when using single quotes as in "I'll" and so on. Likewise, maplev-indent-buffer messes up the whole buffer as it interprets the multiline comments as code.

So my question is: is someone still working on this and using it?? I guess I can work around some of these things, but it would be nice if this worked.

Incidentally, my version of maplev-mode.el seems to be dated June 2005.

I know Joe is here on occasion, maybe he can chime in. It is not absolutely fatal; I could forgo using maplev, but if I am forced to go this route of readin in the package; using maplev-mode at least gives me something in return. Unfortunately my elisp skills are not quite up to fixing this myself; at least not in a reasonable time.

If it is relevant: I use Emacs 22.1 on Mac OS X. Yes, I could upgrade to at least Emace 23.4, if that were the issue.

Thanks in advance,

Hello everyone!!

I am beggining to use Maple and i saw there are many Math Apps in the Library. I was wondering if I can see the source code of some of this Math Apps to learn how to do my own ones.

I got a code file and i dont know how to load it in Linux. In Windows i just type:

read "E:/code.txt"

But thing now i change to use Linux and cant do the same (Maple 2015 64bit Linux ver), try to load

read "/root/Desktop/code.txt"

It show me that:

I click Cancel and it show me:

Hope can help me another ways to use and load my code to run.


      I am a student doing some self study over the summer trying to work through some of the John Taylor computer problems from his classcial mechanics book. Currently I hit a snag that most likely comes from the fact I am not well acquinted with Maple for solving IVP and DE's (we used Matlab in my DE class). I just need to know how I remove the following error:

Error, (in dsolve/numeric/SC/IVPsetup) initial conditions must be numeric

Here is a copy of my code:

R := 5;
g := 9.8;
deq1 := {diff(x(t), [`$`(t, 2)]) = -g*sin(x(t))/R, x(0) = 20};
/ d / d \ \
{ --- |--- x(t)| = -1.960000000 sin(x(t)), x(0) = 20 }
\ dt \ dt / /
dsol1 := dsolve(deq1, numeric);
Error, (in dsolve/numeric/SC/IVPsetup) initial conditions must be numeric

My hunch is that I need to set x'(0)=0 or something like I do not have enough intial values to solve the problem, but I could be wrong. Anyway anyone who can point out my mistake feel free to do so! Thank you!

Dear Colleges

I have a problem with the following code. As you can see, procedure Q1 converges but I couldn't get the resutls from Q2.

I would be most grateful if you could help me on this problem.


Sincerely yours

if not type(pp2,numeric) then return 'procname(_passed)' end if:
end proc;

Q2:=proc(rr2) local solT,T0,T1;
if not type(rr2,numeric) then return 'procname(_passed)' end if:

$15 is spread among four different bags. How  can you can make any whole number of dollars from $1 to $15 by selecting some of these bags of money, without taking any money out of the bags.
How is the money distributed ?

One bag must have $1 in it.
To be able to make $2, and each bag is different, so one bag must have $2 in it.
 can now make $3, but can’t make $4, so the third bag must have $4 in it.
With $1, $2 and $4 in three bags, can make every total up to $7. The last bag has the rest of his money in it – $8.

so the answer is $[1,2,4,8]

wondering how to do this with maple procedure. unsurprisingly my code doesn't work



I've seen a few maple presentations where a block of code is wrapped in a box. Does anyone know how this is done?


Thanks guys for your help, I know I am asking sometimes some stupid questions, I spend hours trying to do that, but when I am stock.... I need some help... and when the problem is solved I can see how unintelligent am I .

There is some kind of strange behaviour with copying/pasting maple code from IDE to some text editor. Namely, the code collapses into one long line in text editor. Is it OK with Maple IDE?

Just as the title says: How do I avoid Maple Prompt to appear automatically?

When writing a code in Maple Prompt and hitting enter, a new [> is created and I can't delete it. Which is unfortunate, for most of the time I want to write some TEXT afterwards, not more code.

Sometimes it doesn't happen, but I can't find the logic in it. Any ideas? Much obliged!

For an example, see this post:

2nd picture. I asked it as a BTW-question.


Thanks in advance

Hi, I am completely new to Maple, and I need to use it to optimize my equations in order to make my PLC codes more compressed. I am calculating forward kinematics with the Denavit-Hartenberg method and as such I get long expressions. After a lot of google'ing and frustration, I thought I'd ask here in the hope that one of you might be able to assist me.

I have the following equations;

X := L10*cos(q5) - L16*(sin(q10)*(sin(q5)*sin(q8) - cos(q8)*(cos(q5)*cos(q6)*cos(q7) - cos(q5)*sin(q6)*sin(q7))) - cos(q10)*(sin(q9)*(cos(q8)*sin(q5) + sin(q8)*(cos(q5)*cos(q6)*cos(q7) - cos(q5)*sin(q6)*sin(q7))) + cos(q9)*(cos(q5)*cos(q6)*sin(q7) + cos(q5)*cos(q7)*sin(q6)))) - d2*(cos(q10)*(sin(q5)*sin(q8) - cos(q8)*(cos(q5)*cos(q6)*cos(q7) - cos(q5)*sin(q6)*sin(q7))) + sin(q10)*(sin(q9)*(cos(q8)*sin(q5) + sin(q8)*(cos(q5)*cos(q6)*cos(q7) - cos(q5)*sin(q6)*sin(q7))) + cos(q9)*(cos(q5)*cos(q6)*sin(q7) + cos(q5)*cos(q7)*sin(q6)))) + L15*(sin(q9)*(cos(q8)*sin(q5) + sin(q8)*(cos(q5)*cos(q6)*cos(q7) - cos(q5)*sin(q6)*sin(q7))) + cos(q9)*(cos(q5)*cos(q6)*sin(q7) + cos(q5)*cos(q7)*sin(q6))) - L11*cos(q5)*sin(q6) + d1*cos(q5)*cos(q6) - L13*sin(q5)*sin(q8) + L14*cos(q9)*(cos(q8)*sin(q5) + sin(q8)*(cos(q5)*cos(q6)*cos(q7) - cos(q5)*sin(q6)*sin(q7))) + L13*cos(q8)*(cos(q5)*cos(q6)*cos(q7) - cos(q5)*sin(q6)*sin(q7)) - L14*sin(q9)*(cos(q5)*cos(q6)*sin(q7) + cos(q5)*cos(q7)*sin(q6)) + L12*cos(q5)*cos(q6)*cos(q7) - L12*cos(q5)*sin(q6)*sin(q7);

Y := L10*sin(q5) - L9 + L16*(sin(q10)*(cos(q5)*sin(q8) - cos(q8)*(sin(q5)*sin(q6)*sin(q7) - cos(q6)*cos(q7)*sin(q5))) - cos(q10)*(sin(q9)*(cos(q5)*cos(q8) + sin(q8)*(sin(q5)*sin(q6)*sin(q7) - cos(q6)*cos(q7)*sin(q5))) - cos(q9)*(cos(q6)*sin(q5)*sin(q7) + cos(q7)*sin(q5)*sin(q6)))) + d2*(cos(q10)*(cos(q5)*sin(q8) - cos(q8)*(sin(q5)*sin(q6)*sin(q7) - cos(q6)*cos(q7)*sin(q5))) + sin(q10)*(sin(q9)*(cos(q5)*cos(q8) + sin(q8)*(sin(q5)*sin(q6)*sin(q7) - cos(q6)*cos(q7)*sin(q5))) - cos(q9)*(cos(q6)*sin(q5)*sin(q7) + cos(q7)*sin(q5)*sin(q6)))) - L15*(sin(q9)*(cos(q5)*cos(q8) + sin(q8)*(sin(q5)*sin(q6)*sin(q7) - cos(q6)*cos(q7)*sin(q5))) - cos(q9)*(cos(q6)*sin(q5)*sin(q7) + cos(q7)*sin(q5)*sin(q6))) + L13*cos(q5)*sin(q8) - L11*sin(q5)*sin(q6) + d1*cos(q6)*sin(q5) - L14*cos(q9)*(cos(q5)*cos(q8) + sin(q8)*(sin(q5)*sin(q6)*sin(q7) - cos(q6)*cos(q7)*sin(q5))) - L13*cos(q8)*(sin(q5)*sin(q6)*sin(q7) - cos(q6)*cos(q7)*sin(q5)) - L14*sin(q9)*(cos(q6)*sin(q5)*sin(q7) + cos(q7)*sin(q5)*sin(q6)) + L12*cos(q6)*cos(q7)*sin(q5) - L12*sin(q5)*sin(q6)*sin(q7);

Z := L15*(cos(q9)*(cos(q6)*cos(q7) - sin(q6)*sin(q7)) - sin(q8)*sin(q9)*(cos(q6)*sin(q7) + cos(q7)*sin(q6))) - L11*cos(q6) - L8 - d1*sin(q6) + L16*(cos(q10)*(cos(q9)*(cos(q6)*cos(q7) - sin(q6)*sin(q7)) - sin(q8)*sin(q9)*(cos(q6)*sin(q7) + cos(q7)*sin(q6))) - cos(q8)*sin(q10)*(cos(q6)*sin(q7) + cos(q7)*sin(q6))) - d2*(sin(q10)*(cos(q9)*(cos(q6)*cos(q7) - sin(q6)*sin(q7)) - sin(q8)*sin(q9)*(cos(q6)*sin(q7) + cos(q7)*sin(q6))) + cos(q8)*cos(q10)*(cos(q6)*sin(q7) + cos(q7)*sin(q6))) - L13*cos(q8)*(cos(q6)*sin(q7) + cos(q7)*sin(q6)) - L14*sin(q9)*(cos(q6)*cos(q7) - sin(q6)*sin(q7)) - L12*cos(q6)*sin(q7) - L12*cos(q7)*sin(q6) - L14*cos(q9)*sin(q8)*(cos(q6)*sin(q7) + cos(q7)*sin(q6));


I need to optimize these equations, but still keep them separate. I would like to use mutual expressions for the calculations within, but still as I said keep the outputs of X, Y and Z separate.

This is MATLAB code.


Thanks in advance for any help.



please explain how to write a code to calculate and output the actual area using integration for y=X^3 over range (0,2) using left-hand rule and 200 subdivisions?


Thank you 

Has there been any progress with new commands for Maple 13 that allow one to auto-resize the plotting grid?

I am generating fractals with Maple 13 and resizing the plot output grid manually is not an option because it distorts it. Neither is the option to resize it once and recalculate, because the final grid contains many points.

Any pre-processing or massaging code prior to executing the main code is very welcome (if it can be done).

Many thanks,
