As stated, contourplot3d is not displaying contours. Even in the Maple Help examples the contours are not displayed in the help screen.

In this example:

contourplot3d(-5*x/(x^2+y^2+1), x = -3 .. 3, y = -3 .. 3, filledregions = true);

which is directly from Maple Help, the surface is plotted (with boxed axes), but no contours appear.

When I try

contourplot3d(-5*x/(x^2+y^2+1), x = -3 .. 3, y = -3 .. 3);

the plot shows nothing except boxed axes.

I've also tried

plot3d(-5*x/(x^2+y^2+1), x = -3 .. 3, y = -3 .. 3, contours=6);

and the surface shows but without countours. Furthermore, the Maple scripts that worked previously in earlier versions (showing contours via plot3d) now do not show contours in Maple 18. This occurs on both Win 7 and Win 8 laptops.



I want to draw a contour plot like the pic below which the relating value of each curve is specified on several parts of the curve. Can anyone suggest a way? :)

As an example do it with the following function:


I have 3 column vectors:

phi contains the number of radians from the North Pole

theta contains the number of radians from the Greenwich meridian

D contains number data corresponding to the point (phi,theta) on the sphere.


How do I plot:

a) a contour plot on the surface of the sphere where each point at (phi, theta) has a corresponding data value D?

b) a plot where the height above the surface at (phi, theta) is some linear function of D such as radius*D*constant?

Dear friends,

I am reporting with a brief comment concerning the integral int(1/(1+x^a), x=0..infinity) with a>=2 a real number. This was evaluated here.

Now Maple 15 (X86 64 LINUX) will quite happily compute this in its most simple form involving the sine when a is not a positive integer or a rational number. If it is, however, a beta function term results,...

I'm trying to graph a contour map of this function: e^(y/x)




I thought the contour map for this function would looks more like several lines intersects at the origin. But when I graph it on Maple, it doesn't looks like the graph I'm looking for.


Did I put in a wrong range?


Hi there i have function as:


where: F,B>0 and 


such that: 


I need to plot the surface (contour plot) f(B,F) at 0 and -ve points i.e f(B,F)<0.


Dear friends,

I will present a series of commands for you to ponder that should speak for themselves.

> q := n -> int(1/(1-2^n*exp(I*theta*n))^2*2*I*exp(I*theta), theta=0..2*Pi);
                            2 Pi
                          |          2 I exp(theta I)
               q := n ->  |      ------------------------ dtheta
                          |            n                2
                         /       (1 - 2  exp(theta n I...

Dear friends,

I ran into another problem while using Maple to do residue calculus. The following call

residue(1/x^(1/3)/(x^2+2*x*cos(phi)+1), x=-exp(I*phi));

returns zero -- it does not recognize the residue. On the other hand, if I do a subsitution like this

subs(x=-exp(I*phi), 1/x^(1/3)/(x^2+2*x*cos(phi)+1));

followed by

convert(%, trig); simplify(%);

then I get a divide by zero error, which shows that the...

Hello all,

I recently helped someone with a contour integration problem, you may find my calculation at the following link. It occurred to me to test this integral with Maple and Mathematica.

For example,

int(1/x^(1/3)/(x^2+2*x*cos(Pi/7)+1), x=0..infinity);

produces an unusable output from Mathematica. Maple is a little better,...

Is it possible to have a contour plot of an ode, 



with  such type of bcs?

bc1:= f(1+sin(x)) = .95, f(-.1-.1*sin(x)) = -.95, (D(f))(1+sin(x)) = -1, (D(f))(-.1-.1*sin(x)) = -1;

contourplot({de1,bc1}, [x,y, f(y)],x=1..10, y=1..10);



I want to make a 3D-plot with the style "surfacecontour". My question is: How do I define the number of contourlines? As I understand the default value is 10, but I only want 4. 

I hope you can help me!  

Hi there. 

I'm making some 2D contour plots and am desperate to know what the values are which are assigned to the different contour levels. e.g., a red band must be reading value 120 (say) and an orange one 80, but how can I get this and show it on a legend in the plot? It's crucial to the value of the plot. 

Many thanks for any help!


int(cos(a*z)/(z^2-4*z+8), z, method=contour)

why run in maple 15, unknown options method = contour

is it default to use contour?

but the result is the same as done by hand, i mean the answer from the book,

int(cos(a*z)/(z^2-4*z+8), z) return contain some Si  and Ci

Any Example can help see the difference between contour and simple integration?

int(XXXX, x, method = contour);

int (XXX, x)

which example can help to see the difference?

My contour of integration is a semi circle whose diameter rests on the imaginary axis from -ri to ri.  The arc of radius r is on the positive real axis going from -ri to ri.  On the curve I want to have directional arrows indicating that I am traversing this contour in the positive direction.  How do I create this figure in MAPLE?
