## Problem with imaginary numbers...

Asked by:

Hello,

I have a function:

v0(t) = -g*t-vs*ln(r*t-m0)+vs*ln(-m0)

This function should be equal to 300, but when using fsolve we get a negative real part, and a very small imaginary part:

We have already made a plot of the function, and from that we see that the t should be about 65 when v0(t)= 300.

What are we doing wrong?

Is there a way to extract the data from the graph?

## Problem with integrating a solution from fsolve...

Asked by:

I have a problem integrating a solution from fsolve.   I read in another post on this forum that the solution was to use unapply.   This works if I then set up the integration as suggested (i.e., without giving the argument to the function), but not if you do it in a way that seems logical to me (i.e.,the first version of the int command marked ‘fails’ below.   if you can plot a function why can’t you integrate it ?).

Anyway the real problem I have is if I want to use the solution found using fsolve as the argument of another function (h below) and then integrate that.  I assume the final line fails because of the same reason the initial attempt to integrate g(x) fails. However, I can’t figure out what the equivalent notation would be if I wanted to omit the ‘x’ variable.   I tried using unapply again, and also putting in quotes, but nothing works.

## How to solve transcendental equation exactly?...

Asked by:

I mean the root of the equation

GAMMA(n-1/n)*GAMMA(1/n)/(n*GAMMA(n)) = 1

belonging to RealRange(Open(1),4). It should be noticed there are solutions outside this interval. Here is my try.

 (1)

 (2)

Also

 (3)

There is a substitute

 (4)

 (5)

There is a shade of hope that GAMMA(n-1/n)*GAMMA(1/n)/(n*GAMMA(n))  can be simplified.

## fsolve doesnt work for many unknowns ...

Asked by:

Hey there,

I am using the fsolve command in order to solve numerically a system of equations with N equations and N unknowns. According to my discretization the number of equations changes. If I have a small number of equations it all works out perfectly. But if I increase the number of equations I just get something like that:

Sorry, for the long post, but for a small number of unknowns Ai it works. It seems that maple doesnt try to compute? Has anyone encountered the same problems?

Any help is appreciated.

## How does Maple determine the interval for function...

Asked by:

In functions such as fsolve, there is an optional parameter that allows one to specify the interval to perform the function on. Additionally, sometimes, if a solution is left out, one can specify an interval to search on to obtain the missing solution.

How does Maple determine the interval to search on if this is not specified?

(Additional Question - you don't have to answer this)

Ultimately, I am asking this question because I have a function for Newton's method; however, it requires an interval to run. I have read that fsolve uses Newton's method, so I am curious how to automatically select such an interval. Does anyone know how to implement such a thing?

## What method(s) is used in fsolve (in Maple)?...

Asked by:

I am curious about the numerical method(s) used by Maple to calculate fsolve. I've looked at the documentation (https://www.maplesoft.com/support/help/maple/view.aspx?path=fsolve%2fdetails), but the method(s) used are not stated on there. Does anyone know which method Maple uses in fsolve? Additionally, does Maple use multiple methods and if so, how does it determine which one to use? Thanks!

## The fsolve command fails, solve doesn't...

Asked by:

Hi Maple community

I'm running an algorithm where a non-linear equation system must be solved, in this case is a 26x26 system.

After 16116 succesful previous computations, fsolve stops giving me results.
I checked why and I was first expecting that, for some reason, the 26x26 system had an error and I ended with something like 25x26 or vice versa. But that was not the case.

So I tried the command solve and it not only worked fine but also gave me two results, but I only need one. I guess I could check for the wrong solution and discard it, but I still wondering why fsolve is failing and if there is anything to help fsolve not to fail.

These are the set of equations if somebody wants to check them:

## Numeric solution of complex system...

Asked by:

Hi, I have the equations (below) with different parameters. I'd like to find out if is it possitble to:

(1) Create a loop that solves for values of on of the parameters, T, in the interval -0.3<T<0.3 and obtain the solutions allowing for a grid of 0.01.

That is, if one can first solve for T= -0.3 and then use the loop with increments that raise T by 0.01 each time until T=0.3. Other parameters are held constant at their assigned values.

(2) Generates the corresponding vectors for T and all the endogenous variables.

eq1 := PI_T = alpha*M*(kappa/(1+kappa-sigma)-1):
eq2 := l = alpha*((sigma-1)*kappa/(1+kappa-sigma)+1):
eq3 := M = phi_c^(-kappa)*F:
eq4 := e*F = PI_T*v+T:
eq5 := M*l+L_A = L_s:
eq6 := F*e+A = A_s:
eq7 := A = (1-beta)*(L_s+(1-v)*PI_T-T):
eq8 := A_s = L_A:
eq9 := p = sigma/((sigma-1)*phi):
eq10 := P_Y = M^(lambda/(1-sigma))*p:
eq11 := L_s = N*(theta*P_Y^beta)^(-1/delta):
eq12 := phi = (kappa/(1+kappa-sigma))^(1/(sigma-1))*phi_c:
eq13 := U = delta*theta*L_s/((1+delta)*P_Y^beta)+((1-v)*PI_T-T)/P_Y^beta:

Params:= [ T=0, N = 1, v = 1, beta = .75, lambda = 1, sigma = 5, kappa = 4.8, delta = 2, theta = 2.591350635, alpha = 0.3998699153e-1, e = 0.8333333332e-1]:

Init_Values:= {A_s = .2500000000, l = .9996747882, PI_T = 0.8333333332e-1, L_A = .2500000000, phi = 1.878101496, M = .4168022157, A = .1666666667, p = .6655657336, P_Y = .8283396488, L_s = 2/3, phi_c = 1.2, F = 1, U = 1.326439132 }:

SOL:= fsolve(eval({eq||(1..13)}, Params), Init_Values);

## How to assign letters as constants?...

Asked by:

Hi all,

I seem to be quite stuck on figuring out how to leave certain letters (e.g. planck's constant h) inside the equation without having to assign it as some particular number.

What I am trying to do is find the value of a when the following equation is at a minimum:

E = (a*(h^2)/2m) + 0.3989422804/sqrt(a)

Here h and m are what I want to set as constants without actually setting them to h := 1 because I want a in terms of h and m. I have already found the derivative dE/da:

((h^2)/2m) - 0.1994711402/a^(3/2)

But I cannot use fsolve to find the value of a at the minimum because it keeps saying that h and m are variables and unsolved for.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.
