I'm taking my first steps with maple and pdsolve, trying to run the example in the maplesoft support page:

which reads

> restart; with(PDEtools);
> U := diff_table(u(x, t));

and I get a solution that is different from the web page, and when i run

Im using maple 13. Any tips about what's wrong?



Hi i have trouble with this equation to solve with maple please help me

with boundary condition :


how i solve above equation with maple?( there is function to solve this equation in maple ?

Hello everyone,

I'm trying to do some fitting using NonlinearFit, for the coefficients I know in advance, that they have to fulfill a condition (a+b>c+1). I couldn't find a way to make Maple take this condition into consideration while fitting my data. I tried to use Parameterrange to make the difference a+b-c+1 positive, this works for linear conditions like mine but leads to computational difficulties and errors like "no improved point could be found".

Thanks in advance,




please help me :

How can I solve this problem on Maple?
Can anyone help me please ... I wrote another post before but I can not solve the problem.

lambda is an experimental parameter. I have this initial condition n(x,0)=0.4, c(x,0)=0.

Thanks to everyone

Dear Maple Users,

I'm beginner in Maple.

I have this system of Pde:

with lambda experimental parameter and n,c,v dependent variables. I write this on Maple but I read on internet that the solution "float(undefined)" is an error.

I will insert this initial condition: c(x,0)=0,n(x,0)=0.4

Thanks everybody

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?

Is it possible to solve piecewise differential equations directly instead of separating the pieces and solving them separately.

like for example if i have a two dimensional function f(t,x) whose dynamics is as follows:

dynamics:= piecewise((t,x) in D1, pde1, pde2); where D1 is some region in (t,x)-plane

now is it possible to solve this system with one pde call numerically?

pde(dynamics, boundary conditions, numeric); doesnot work

im solving 6 ODE which is the equations are unsteady with boundary conditions.. the program can be run when A=0 but when A=0.2 or others value .. its cannot be run... A means for unsteadiness... before this i solve for steady equations.. this is first time i solve for unsteady using maple.. anyone know where i am wrong??? thanks for helping :)

Please I need help in this subject. I would like to compare the numerical solution obtained by finite difference and pdsolve/numeric.

The equation considred is  diffusion Equation using Forward-time centered-space (FTCS) stencil
The code work well with Dirichlet boundary condition, but I want to let  x=-1  Dirichlet boundary condition but on x=1, we put a Neumann condition likeeval( diff(u(t,x),x),x=1)=1. Thank you very much to put the necessary in the attached code the changment.      
Many thinks.    


I solve laplace equation in a square. All the lines of my code is okay.

Please just look to the last part of my code titled procedure:

When I run my code without (last funciton f #f := (x,y) -> 0;) see last lines to find "f". It's runing, there is no problem. But when I put add f, there is an error. Many think  for any help.

Using the previous suty in section stencil we can write the procedure to solve the Laplace equation in [0,1]*[0,1] with the boundary condition Neumann conditions on the vertical boundary and Dirichlet boundary condition on the horizontal baoundary. In our study we will use the same stepsize h in x and y direction.

local Z,i,h,y,x,sys,w,f,sol,j,u,Data;
# define basic grid parameters
Z := i -> (1/(N+1))*i;
x[0] = Z(0),x[N+1] = Z(N+1),y[0] = Z(0),y[N+1] = Z(N+1);
 h := evalf(Z(1)-Z(0));
# Fix the boundary data and the source matrix
for i from 0 to N+1 do:
    # Neumann boundary condition
     u[N+1,i] :=  u[N,i] ;    
     u[0,i] := u[1,i];
     # Dirichlet boundary condition
     u[i,0] := 0;
     u[i,N+1] := 0;
   f := Array(0..N+1,0..N+1,[seq([seq(evalf(_f(Z(i),Z(j))),i=0..N+1)],j=0..N+1)],datatype=float);
# Write down the system of equations to solve and solve them
     sys := [seq(seq(Stencil(h,i,j,u,f),i=1..N),j=1..N)];
  w := [seq(seq(u[i,j],i=1..N),j=1..N)];
  sol := LinearSolve(GenerateMatrix(sys,w));
   # parse the solution vector sol back into "matrix" form
   for i from 1 to N do:
     for j from 1 to N do:
        u[i,j] := sol[(j-1)*N+i]:
# generate a 3D plot of the solution using the surfdata command
   Data := [seq([seq([Z(i),Z(j),u[i,j]],i=0..N+1)],j=0..N+1)]:
end proc:

Here is an example of the output when the source function is set to zero
                                 f(x, y) = 0
; i.e., when  reduces down to Laplace's equation:
#f := (x,y) -> 0;

For context, I'm designing a work sheet based around quantum tunneling. Currently I'm looking at the boundary conditions.

What I want to be able to do is to set the expression psi[1] equal to psi[2], but only for the value x = 0. Is this possible? I've tried using if statements, and I've considered converting these expressions into functions for this purpose, but I'm not having much luck. 



im solving 4 ODe with boundary conditions.. i got this error Error, (in dsolve/numeric/bvp/convertsys) too few boundary conditions: expected 8, got 7

i want to find initial condition for F(0),G(0), H(0) and thetap(0) which is are missing in this problem.. then i facing this error Error, (in dsolve/numeric/bvp) Newton iteration is not converging
