Prime sum question
http://www.mapleprimes.com/questions/202342-Prime-Sum-Question-?ref=Feed:MaplePrimes:Tagged With integer
<p>According to this site,"It is known that every even number can be written as a sum of at most six primes". </p>
<p>http://www.theage.com.au/national/education/christians-goldbachs-magic-sum-20140903-3es2t.html</p>
<p>i wanted to test this using maple.</p>

<p>> local cst,obj,res; <br>> cst := add(x[i], i = 1 .. numtheory:-pi(prevprime(a))) <= 6; <br>> obj := add(x[i]*ithprime(i), i = 1 .. numtheory:-pi(prevprime(a)))-a; <br>> res := Optimization:-LPSolve(obj, {cst ,obj>=0}, assume={nonnegative,integer}); end proc:<br>> PF(30);<br>[0, [x[1] = 0, x[2] = 0, x[3] = 6, x[4] = 0, x[5] = 0, x[6] = 0,x[7] = 0, x[8] = 0, x[9] = 0, x[10] = 0]]</p>
<p>the third prime is 5 and 6 of them make 30. as an aside, it would be nice to know how to get maple to output "30 = 6x5".</p>
<p>this is obviously pretty limited, because 30 can be written as the sum of two primes (7+23 and 11+19) [GOLDBACH], but using DS's GlobalSearch for all solutions takes a long time to compute. also I have to nominate the highest prime.</p>

<p>I'm interested in doing some experimental mathematics using the PSLQ integer relation algorithm. The only third-party program for doing PSLQ problems I've been able to find is a GNU C++ program with a less-than-user-friendly command-line interface. I've heard that Maple implements PSLQ and I like the symbolic input and presentation it offers as a CAS, but I can't find any information on which alternative types of Maple 18 make the PSLQ algorithm available.</p><p>I'm interested in doing some experimental mathematics using the PSLQ integer relation algorithm.

<p>Now Maple 15 (X86 64 LINUX) will quite happily compute this in its most simple form involving the sine when a is not a positive integer or a rational number. If it is, however, a beta function term results, which the simplifier does not know how to turn into a sine term even though the two arguments add up to one.</p>
<p>This is just to bring this to your attention. One might say that a beta function term is as good as a sine term, I would argue, though, that the sine term should be preferred. Maple will output the correct result when a is left unspecified (symbol), which I think is very nice.</p>

<p>this is to share with you what a joy it was to work with Maple on the problem of enumerating non-isomorphic graphs. This problem goes back to Polya and Harary and it is a beautiful example of Polya counting, while also being of notable simplicity, so that a high school student or an undergraduate can follow it easily.</p>

<p>this is to share with you what a joy it was to work with Maple on the problem of enumerating non-isomorphic graphs. This problem goes back to Polya and Harary and it is a beautiful example of Polya counting, while also being of notable simplicity, so that a high school student or an undergraduate can follow it easily.</p>
<p>I have worked on this problem over the years, adapting my solutions in Cocoa and Lisp as I gained insights. My first attempt used GMP for large integers and can be found <a href="http://www.roard.com/docs/cookbook/cbsu5.html">here.</a> It was quite involved and while it computed results for very large values, there was a crucial oversight in that it did not use Lovasz' formula for the cycle index of the symmetric group. Thereafter I wrote another implementation in Lisp, taking advantage of the large integers provided by that language, but still not using said formula.</p>
<p>Most recently I was prompted by a post at math.stackexchange.com to revisit this problem and decided to implement the best algorithm, which is the one that uses Lovasz' formula. To my suprise it only needed a few lines of code to solve the problem even for large numbers of nodes. Imagine my amazement at the power of Maple especially taking into account the effort I had needed to program the solution with Objective C and GMP (which is not to say that this combination does not have its advantages under certain circumstances). I also enjoy working with a computer algebra system that keeps syntactic complexity to a minimum, enabling users to get started quickly.</p>
<p>I hope that with this motivational story I may give back some of the pleasure of my experience with Maple, and perhaps convince you that expanding the group theory package to include common cycle indices and routines to substitute at specific values of the variables would be a good thing to have, so that one day, counting non-isomorphic graphs will be as easy as saying give me the cycle index of the edge permutation group of the complete graph on n nodes and substitute the values of the edges into that index. Of course if you have such a package already do post the link.</p>
<p>Best regards,</p>

<p>Hello, I have a set of equations, and I want to solve it over the integers (mod 13). But msolve command fails.
