I'm trying to create interactive plots by using Explore to help demonstrate the effects parameters have on functions. I created one successfully to illustrate shifts and stretches of a polynomial:


transform(A,B,X,H,P,K):=Explore(plot(a*(b*x+h)^(p)+k,x=X),parameters=[a=A, b= B,h=H,p=P,k=K],placement=right)


However when I try to do the same with a solved ODE it returns an error message:


Explore(plot(1/(-p*x+x+1)^(1/(p-1)), x = -5 .. 5), parameters = [p = -20 .. 20], placement = right);


Executing this gives the error message: 

Warning, expecting only range variable x in expression 1/((-p*x+x+1)^(1/(p-1))) to be plotted but found name p

VIEW(-5. .. 5., DEFAULT, _ATTRIBUTE("source" = "mathdefault"))),

parameters = [p = -20 .. 20], placement = right


I'm not sure why it is having difficulty dealing with "p" when it had no difficulty with the first. Any help would be appreciated!

Here in this work and used as the main topic a short description of electrostatics and electrodynamics using the Explore to model the fundamental laws command.

I have a question regarding maple reader.


It seems like in maple reader, one cannot interact with the output of the Explore function.... which mean I am forced to make my own component if I want to creat application for my co-worker to use..this is some what annoying.  Is there another way around?


please open the attached file in maple player and you will see the output created by Explore gives error message.




Hi everyone

I'd be pleased if you could give a hand with the exploration assistant.


1. I want the exploration assistant to appear on the same document I am working on, but everytime I use it (either by right-clicking or by the explore command) it automatically appears on a new document.


2. can I manipulate a piecewise function when using embedded components? i.e.: plot the function and varying the parameters using sliders.





I only recently started to work with Maple17 and tried to test the Explore command. In Classic worksheet I tried a very simple function with a parameter, but after setting the inteval of the parameter in the Java pop-up window I have no result. In return I take: "Error, (in Explore) invalid input: rtable_dims uses a 1st argument, A (of type rtable), which is missing"

Has anyone encounter the same issue before?


Hello,When I plot graphs I can simply add colors, gridlines, labels, etc., but when I want to do this with the command 'Explore' it doesn't work.The commad 'Explore' sees the words 'color', 'labeldirections' and other commands as extra variables.For exmaple is does recognize 'labels' and 'title', which I can fill in, but it doesn't some of the other commands I would like to insert.I have a formula for deriving the eigenfrequency of a concrete beam, where I want to add some things to (like the things mentioned above).Somebody knows what the difference is between 'normal' plotting and plotting with 'Explore'?Explore_-_Adding_Col.mwGreetingsFrank

Before doing an explore-plot command I had given constant or expression assignments to certain parameters in preliminary statements, e.g.

k = 4* 10-5 ;

mpgo = 45;

mpgave = mpgo - k*(md /2 );

mpgmave = mpgo - k*(m / 2);


Then I did an explore-plot :


Explore(plot(7.28*m*( (1/mpgmave) - (1/mpgave) ) ,


The Locator object is a nice piece of Mathematica's Manipulate command's functionality. Perhaps Maple's Explore command could do something as good.

Here below is a roughly laid out example, as a Worksheet. Of course, this is not...

Hi there

I'm a new user of Maple 15 and would really appreciate some tips on how to get started, this time more specifically on how to change the axis orientation. I'm a geotechnical engineer and in practice we always plot all the soil properties (strength, density, water content, etc) with depth, and so it should be positive downwards. 

I've seen a few posts where the issue was raised by some people years ago but was just curious to know if the new version...

Is it somehow possible to apply the Explore command to a procedure with numerical parameters?
It would be convenient in some cases. For example, let us consider  the following  procedure:
K := proc (alpha, theta1, theta2, sigma, n::posint)
uses Statistics;
t[alpha] := fsolve(CDF(RandomVariable(NormalDistribution(0, 1)), -t) = alpha, t);
 beta := evalf(CDF(RandomVariable(NormalDistribution(0, 1)),

The iPad is a very exciting device and it has been gaining broad adoption from our academic and professional customers alike. It was a logical step for us to bring Maple technology to this platform.
The Maple Player for iPad is now available in the Apple App Store. It comes bundled with ready-made interactive Maple documents, covering topics like integration, differentiation, computing...


Is it possible to programatically specify which variables are to be skipped and what the ranges should be for others when using the Explore command? I mean as options to Explore.

If not, is this in the future plans?




I have explored some multi-animation with maple, but I can not change the parameters one by one.

Command Explore is analog to Mathematica's Manipulate but the problem in a new worksheet.

How to get Explore like Manipulate in the same worksheet ?



I want to explore for example:

Explore(plot(Sum(i^2*sin(i*x), i = 1 .. n), x = 0 .. 10));

I know that animate can be applied as:

animate(plot, [Sum(i^2*sin(i*x), i = 1 .. n), x = 0 .. 10], n = 1 .. 10);

Is it possible to get the Exploration Assistant in the same worksheet after the command Explore and not in another worksheet ?

Explore can be done for many parameters which is not the case for animate.

Thanks for any suggestion

As I have recently learned, the environment variable 'Digits' controls the working precision and is therefore crucial for avoiding significant impacts of round-off error effects on floating point computations.

Moreover I discovered, that even when I set Digits to say 20, Explore is not affected.

Is there a way to control the working precision of the floating-point computations carried out by the Explore option?
