Here is a simple program.




Running this on Maple 2015 gives a correct Maple statement for t in outfile which can be read into another Maple session.

Running on another computer with Maple 17 gives

t:= || (a^2/b^2*x*y) || ;

in outfile which is not a valid statement.

I know that I can avoid this problem by using the save statement but I want to understand why the code gives the wrong result in Maple 17 and how to change it so it works on both versions.


Hello All.

Why Maple can’t do this Simple indefinite integral?

I'm have a integral :


Please compare to Mathematica:

Thanks in advance for your help.

This is really weird.


Does any one see a "||" in the above? I do not. Then why Maple shows this:

r := cat("dsolve(",eq,",y(x))");


This is Maple 2015 on windows. Running in worksheet mode

Here is screen shot


This problem does not show up all the time. For example, this works ok:


No "||" added. The problem with all the above, is that I can't make it all as a string in the first example above. I am trying to make a string of   "dsolve(" + ode + "),y(x)"

Here is the display options


thank you



I'm trying to solve the integral u/(1-u) with Maple and noticed that it returned a result that doesn't accord to the solution I found by hand or the solution from WolframAlpha. This is a screenshot of the weird behaviour:

Does Maple do any weird conversions? Or did I do something wrong or is Maple wrong?

Thanks in advance,

Maple Product Manager

As the year draws to a close, we start looking forward to a new year and a new release of Maple. With every new release comes many new features and updates to explore.

We are looking for several new beta testers with a good working knowledge of Maple; We need your input, your ideas, and your experience with our products to help us improve the software and get it ready for general release.

There are many benefits to becoming a beta tester:

  • You’ll get to use the new software before anyone else does.
  • You’ll help us make our software better in ways that work for you.
  • Your suggestions could determine the future direction of the software.
  • You’ll get feedback right from the development team.

If you are interested in becoming a beta tester for the next version of Maple, please email: beta (at) for more information.

Since we’re almost at the end of the year, I thought it would be interesting to look back at our most popular webinars for academics in 2015. I found that they fell into one of two categories: live streaming webinars featuring Dr. Robert Lopez and Maple how-to tutorials.  (If you missed the live presentation, you can watch the recordings of all these webinars below.)

The first and second most popular webinar were, unsurprisingly, both of the live streaming webinars that featured Dr. Robert Lopez (Emeritus Professor at Rose Hulman Institute of Technology and Maple Fellow at Maplesoft). These webinars were streamed live to an audience and allowed many people to get their first glimpse of the man behind the Clickable Calculus series and Teaching Concepts with Maple:

1.       Eigenpairs Enlivened

In this webinar, Dr. Robert Lopez demonstrates how Maple can enhance the task of teaching the eigenpair concept, and shows how Maple bridges the gap between the concept and the algorithms by which students are expected to practice finding eigenpairs.

2.       Resequencing Concepts and Skills via Maple's Clickable

In this webinar, Dr. Lopez presents examples of what "resequencing" looks like when implemented with Maple's point-and-click syntax-free paradigm. Not only can Maple be used to elucidate the concept, but in addition, it can be used to illustrate and implement the manipulations that ultimately the student must master.

The next three were all brief webinars on how to complete specific tasks in Maple 2015. Just under a dozen of these were created in 2015 and they were all quite popular, but these three stood out above the rest:

3.       Working with Data Sets in Maple

This video walks through examples of working with several types of data in Maple, including visualizing stock and commodity data, forecasting future temperatures using weather data, and analyzing macroeconomic data, such as employment statistics, GDP and other economic indicators.

4.       Custom Color Schemes in Maple

This webinar provides an overview of the colorscheme option for coloring surfaces, curves and collections of points in Maple, including how to color with gradients, according to function value or point position. Examples of how the colorscheme option is used with various commands from the Maple library are also demonstrated.

 5.       Working with Units in Maple

Maple 2015 allows for more fluid and natural interaction with units. This webinar provides an overview of the new unit formatting controls and new Temperature object, and demonstrates how to compute with units and tolerances.

Are there any topics you’d like to see Robert cover in upcoming webinars? Or, any Maple how-to videos you think would be a helpful addition to our library? Let us know in the comments below!




having some issue using the codegeneration function in maple. I have a script written in Maple that I would like to do in Python 2.7. I knew to maple and not sure if my syntax is incorrect or if the program doesnt support the conversion, as an example,


q[Fick] := proc (t) options operator, arrow; -hm0(t)*(ps(T[C5](t))-p[inf]) end proceq2 := m[C5](t)*Cp[C5l](T[C5](t))*(diff(T[C5](t), t)) = q[heat](t)




Hope somebody can help me! I installed Maple on my computer, but everything is very small , for example the bar in the top with all the small icons. It is the same thing when I make plots. The values on the axes are very small. How can I change this?

I have taken a photo of the problem, don't know if it helps.

The Maple 2015.2 update is now available for Windows and Linux users. It provides official support for Windows 10, connectivity to the latest MATLAB release, support for MapleSim 2015.2, updates to Physics, and a variety of small improvements throughout the product.  It is available through the Check for Updates system, and is also available from our website on the Maple 2015.2 download page.

The Mac update will be released as soon as we have finished fixing the problems on Mac OS X 10.11. We’re working on it.


We are looking for enthusiastic Maple users to become Maple Ambassadors, to inspire and educate others about the benefits that Maple brings to education.


As an Ambassador, you will have the opportunity to influence the development of Maple through regular meetings with Maplesoft developers, get advance news of upcoming features and products, get assistance with Maple events on your campus, and more. In return, we ask that you do what you are probably already doing – sharing your experiences with Maple, answer questions on forums (like this one!), sharing your Maple applications, providing us with feedback, etc.


You can find more information and an application form at Maple Ambassador Program. We’re looking forward to hearing from you!

     I have a list of 603 integrals that I want to evaluate. Unfortunately, I can't get Maple to do most of them. Mathematica can do some that Maple can't, and returns an answer in terms of BesselJ functions. So my question is 2-fold

1) Is there a way to make Maple do this integral?
2) If not, is there a way to efficiently convert 603 expessions to Mathematica and back?


assume(k1::real, k2::real, R::real, R>0);
a :=cos(x)*exp(I*(k1*R*sin(x)+k2*R*sin(x)-4*x))*sin(x):
int(a, x=-Pi/2..Pi/2) assuming real;



assume(k1::real, k2::real, R::real, R>0);

a :=cos(x)*exp(I*(k1*R*sin(x)+k2*R*sin(x)-4*x))*sin(x)



int(a, x=-Pi/2..Pi/2) assuming real;

int(cos(x)*exp(I*(k1*R*sin(x)+k2*R*sin(x)-4*x))*sin(x), x = -(1/2)*Pi .. (1/2)*Pi)


Mathematica Answer
