Hi every body:

i have a second order ode and will convert to two ode of first order with maple,how do this work???

eq := diff(y(x), x, x)+2*y(x)+y(x)^2 = 0

hi.i encountered this erroe  [Error, (in dsolve/numeric/bvp/convertsys) unable to convert to an explicit first-order system] with solving set of differential equation.please help me.thanks a lot

I'm attempting to plot several solutions of this differential equation (I have uploaded my worksheet). I have used this series of commands before without issue, but for some reason I keep getting the error message: "Error, (in plot) incorrect first argument" ect.. Does anyone have any insight into what might be going wrong? Thank you.

### Finding first and last none zero entries in Vector...

Hi all,

Is there an easy way to find first and last entries of a vector which is non zero?

fa:=proc(x)
local i;
while x[i]<>1 do
i:=i+1;
end do;
end proc;

fa(<1|0|0|1|0|0>);

That does not work. I have also tried to use

while 'x'[i]<>1 do

keeps getting error saying: Error, (in fa) bad index into Vector

What's the best way to get result 1 (in this case...

Hi,    I have the following

for i from 1 to 100 do    x[i]:=cos(θ[i]);     y[i]:=sin(θ[i])  end do;

Now I want to find the first and second derivatives for x[i] and y[i] which are

for i from 1 to 100 do     x1dot[i]:=-sin(θ[i]);     y1dot[i]:=cos(θ[i]);
