Dear Maple users

Physical experiment: I dropped a ball with low mass from a height of approximately 7 meters and wanted to test if the air resistance was proportional to the square of the velocity. I filmed the fall and used the program Logger Pro to collect data: a number of datapoints (time,height) was collected. I copy/pasted the datapoints into MS Excel, from where I could import data into Maple via Tools > Assistants > Import Data ... Then I wanted to make a fit with the theoretical solution, given by a function having just one parameter: the Drag coefficient. Unfortunately I received an error "complex values encountered" (see below). I can solve the problem manual by making a number of guesses for the drag coefficient, until the theoretical curve approximates the data points well. I wanted to make Maple do the fitting job, though. I will appreciate if someone could give an idea how to fit the data properly.

NB! Mass m and g is defined above in the Maple document. The Statistics and plots package is called too.

I have a function fitted and found the coeffiecients, the coeffiecient values are found with data from maple

the function is: a*(x+b/c)

my result is 5x+15

How do I get the values of a, b and c? The value of a is 5 that I know, but how does I get that maple gives me all the values of a,b  and c? The problem is that I get one value while i need the values of a, b and c.


Ok guys, so i have a bunch of datapoints in 3d (x,y,z)

I'm trying to calculate an equation using maple that will express z as a function of x and y.

I've been browesing around for like 2 hours now with no hope. Help?


Hi. It is be good to be with you after 4 years.

I want to ask about Curvefitting for Data. If I have a numerical data and i want to find a function in x and y for these data.

i have a non linear equation that depends on three variables e, theta and z.

i have done calculations to calculate e while varying theta and z. theta varied among the vector [0, Pi/4, Pi/3, Pi/2] and z was varying between 1 and 20

when plotting my data it gives the following plot where z is represented on the x-axis and each curve correspond to one theta


i am currently able of fitting one plot to one equation i would like to fit the data points using the nonlinearfit function and to only get one equation for all the plots. is that possible in maple or not


Hey, I have some data points:


I than entered:

X := Data[() .. (), 1];
Y := Data[() .. (), 2];
f := a+b*x^c+d*x^e;
Statistics:-NonlinearFit(f, X, Y, x);
 and when I entered Statistics:-NonlinearFit(f, X, Y, x);, It wouldn't output anything.



I am new to Maple.

I have a set of spreadsheet data :(x1, y1), (x2, y2) .....(xn,yn).

And I have an equation that contains an infinite series with unkowns.

e.g.) y=  A*x + sum ( B * exp(-n^2 * (x-C)) /n^2, n=1..infinity);

Where A, B, C are unkowns, which I want to get optimized values for the spreadsheet data fitting.


Please let me know.

Hey guys

I am currently working on my final project in high school. This project is about mathematical modelling within epidemology, and i am currently working on the mathematical models based on the SIR model.

The basis models for the SIR model were pretty easy, but i cant figure out how to fit data to my models. My first idea was to use the method of Leastsquare and/or Nonlinearfit, but i cant figure out how to do this in maple.

Dear All:

 I have a curve about mosfet  Coss Vs. Vds . the detail math relationship can be found in the following picture: 


 Can anyone fitting this picture by simple math function.

 PS: pls don't considering piecewise function 



I measured some points. This points are plotted in a graph. Now I want to make a fit on this points.

I now that the fit-function has to be like this:

F = A + B1 x e^(-t/C1) + B2 x e^(-t/C2)

Problem: how can I create a fitting function like that?


The best thing I found is the "spline"-fit, but it doesn't work properly. It has to be one lonely function, not a summary of several functions (like spline).

Hi, I'm trying to fit an equation:

starting_salary= (intercept+SEX*B0) +B1*GPA  +B2* METRICS

(metrics,sex are  dummy variables, either 0 or 1) to see how sex coefficient affects the intercept ( how it affects starting_salary)

(later on I  want to see how metrics affects starting_salary for either sex=1 and sex =0 .. anyways I disgress) 




I have a huge .txt file in it is a lot of difirent numbers. At first I am doing this:

>data:=readdata(C:/text.txt, 1, integer)

Maple reads the file.
I  have a function p(x)=e^(x^4+0.5*a*x^2+b*x)
I tried to draw a histogram and then to do something with fitting, I know that then I have to do logarithm the function then I get ln(p(x))=x^4+0.5*a*x^2+b*x, the histogram then should be up side down. The point is that...

Hello everyone.

Now, I am studying nonlinear fitting method through help file of maple. Unfortunately, I'm not getting good fit using NonliearFit. The following is my psocedure:

> restart;
> with(Statistics);
> y := 1/(3.6+2.3*x)+17.6*exp(-0.2*x);
> fy := unapply(y, x);
> for x to 10 do fy(x) end do;

Following Christopher2222 request, I wrote the following procedures for "exact" cubic Hermite spline interpolation,
