### Expand (a+b)^n in binomial expansion form...

July 26 2014

expand( (a+b)^n)

convert((a+b)^n,Sum)

none  expands in  binomial  form.  Is there any way for Maple to generate  binomial  expansion of (a+b)^n  without

entering  manually.

### Vector math and conditional functions...

July 17 2014
1 4

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"

WHY?

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?

### Vector Field to "normal" function...

July 14 2014

Hello everyone.

I have a vector field in 2d-cartesian coordinates which I would like to convert to a "normal" function, that is f(x, y) where when you put x and y in, you get the magnitude of the vector at that point.

Example vector field:

This one is very hard to handle by hand which is why I want to use Maple for it.

I tried VectorCalculus[Norm] but it gave me this:

### convert help of older maple version to 18...

June 13 2014

you can change help of older maple version to 18 by this command:

HelpTools:-Database:-ConvertAll():

for example if you download DirectSearch optimization package it's help don't open in maple 18 because in maple 18 .hdb converted to .help and you can do this convert by HelpTools:-Database:-ConvertAll():

DirectSearch version 2 created for maple 13 and i converted it's help to 18.

after i typed this command maple 18 wrote:

"Converting G:\\Program Files\\Maple 18\\lib\\DirectSearch.hdb to G:\\Program Files\\Maple 18\\lib\\DirectSearch.help"
Warning, .hdb help databases are deprecated, 'G:\Program Files\Maple 18\lib\DirectSearch.hdb' will not be used, see ?HelpTools,Migrate help page for more information.

and when try again it worked properly and DirectSearch help opened.

### how to convert a ODE/DAE system to a real system...

June 04 2014
2 9

I am using Maple 15 to numerically solve a system of differential algebraic euqations (DAE) with given initial conditions, and I've tried rfk45_dae and rosenbrock_dae solver, but both solver responded in error like this

Error, (in dsolve/numeric) cannot numerically solve complex DAE initial value problems, the system must be converted to a real system

I don't understand what is a real system, and how could i convert it to a real system.

### Units conversion problem...

May 09 2014
0 2

This is an addition to the following post:

http://www.mapleprimes.com/questions/141795-Unit-Conversion-Problem

But I use the clickable facilities of Maple.  Here is the problem:

>32[[degC]];

32[[degC]]
right-click -> Units -> Replace units -> degF

288
--- [[degF]]
5

>evalf[5]( (2) );
57.600[[degF]]

but if I do that:

>convert(32, 'temperature', 'degC', 'degF');

448
---
5

>evalf[5]( (4) );
89.600

Why the conversion is bad when you try to do it by the clickable way????????????

### How can I solve Matrix = Matrix ? ...

April 25 2014
2 13

I have two 6x1 Matrices which are the results of a calculation process in Maple. One with a set of equations and the other one with a set of variables:

A := [0, f(x6), f(x6), 0, 0, f(x6)];

b := [x1, x2, x3, x4, x5, x6];

I'd like to solve the following system:

for i from 1 to 6 do

eq[i] := A[i] = b[i]:

od;

which is

eq[1] := 0 = x1;

eq[2] := f(x6) = x2;

eq[3] := f(x6) = x3;

...

If I type in the eqations manually, and execute "s := solve({eq[1],..,eq[6]},{x1,..,x6})" everything solves fine.

If I use the "for i from..." - structure, and execute "s := solve({eq[1],..,eq[6]},{x1,..,x6})" I get an empty space as solution.

I've tried to convert both matrices into lists, but it doesn't work.

Could it be that Maple doesnt know that x6 has to be the x6 in the function f(x6) ?

Can anyone tell me how to solve this please?

### Maple LaTeX font consistency...

April 07 2014
2 4

Dear Mapleprimes,

I have been struggling with a problem in the last couple of days. I wish to export a Maple plot to LaTeX while ensuring font consistency. While searching for solutions online, I found the psfrag package in LaTeX. So far, however, I have been unsuccesful in making this work. As as test, I attempted to export plot(x^2) to LaTeX. I used the following code to convert to .eps which worked fine:

plotsetup(ps, plotoutput = plot1.eps, plotoptions = portrait, noborder,height=5in,width=5in);plot(x^2);

Then in LaTeX, I have:

\documentclass{article}

\usepackage{graphicx}

\usepackage{psfrag}

\begin{document}

\begin{figure}[!h]
\centering
\psfrag{x}{$\alpha$}
\includegraphics[scale=0.5]{plot1.eps}
\end{figure}
\end{document}

However, no replacements are made. After intense Google searching I found the following post http://www.mapleprimes.com/posts/43255-Trouble-Replacing-Maple-Axes-Labels which to sum up argues that this was only possible with earlier versions of Maple.

Does anyone know if the problem has been resolved?

Does anyone know any other ways to ensure font consistency for plots imported from Maple to LaTeX?

Thank you very much in advance!

### printf for list 0 format conversion help...

March 13 2014

Hi all,

Say I have some list like this,

tmp:=[[0, 0, 1], [0, 1, 0], [0, 1, 1], [0, 1, 2], [1, 0, 0], [1, 0, 1], [1, 0, 2], [1, 1, 0], [1, 1, 1], [1, 1, 2], [1, 2, 0]];

And I have worked out some probabilities for each of them, a,b,c,d, ect.

I want to print them like this

Pr( 001 ) = 1

Pr( 010 ) = 1-phi[2]+phi[2]*(1-p[3])*(1-phi[3])

Pr( 011 ) = phi[2]*p[3]*(1-phi[3])

and so on.

I there a way to do that?

The probabilities can be extracted from a Vector. I have no problem to print them.

I dont know how to convert the 0,1,2 into the desired format as shown above.

This is the best I can do.

Also, is it possible to convert all the subscripte [] to _ when printing the output?

and get ride of all * as well.

Thanks,

casperyc
