When I try "touch and drag" in Maple documents, the documentation for example, I end up selecting text instead of scrolling. Unfortunately the alternatives for scrolling are a) the scrollbar, b) page-up/down or c) moving the cursor. Each of those alternatives is about 2.5311 orders of magnitude more inconvenient than touch&drag.

Does anybody know if its possible to get Maple (18) to scroll instead of select text when I touch the screen?


firstly apologies in advance for stuff in this question such as "triangle symbol",  my computer is pretty old. 

ok so i was confused a bit here, what i'm trying to do is write a maple procedure that computes Af for a given f contained in V . except we only need to correct the bug in the script below. This script demonstrates such a procedure in the case that omega is a square. The domain is given here as the negative set of a function F contained in V .  I have left in notes where/what i think we need to do but i dunno how to...

N:=10 ; # Global Var
Average := proc(F, f0) local f, i, j;
f := f0; # !!!!!!!!!!!!!! something is bad here...
for i to N do for j to N do
if F(i, j) < 0 then
f[i, j] := (f0[i - 1, j] + f0[i + 1, j] + f0[i, j + 1] + f0[i, j - 1])/4 ;
end if;
end do;end do;
return f;
end proc;
f0:=Matrix(N,F); # just to have something to test the procedure
Average(F,f0); # does not return the expected average, modifies f0


the necessary information we were given to produce this so far was..

Let N be a positive integer and [N] = {i contained in N | 1<= i <=N }  Let "Omega" C {(i,j) contained in [N] x [N] | 2<=i,j<=N-1} be a subset. Let V = R^([N]x[N]) be the vector space of real valued functions [N]x[N] -> R
and A, "triangle symbol":V->V (average) and "triangle symbole" (Laplacian) be the linear maps such that
[Af](i; j) = f(i; j)      if (i; j) not contained in "Omega"   OR

                             [f(i, j + 1) + f(i, j - 1) + f(i + 1, j) + f(i - 1, j)]/4 if (i,j) is contained in "Omega"

["traingle symbol"f](i,j) =  0 if (i,j) isnt contained in "Omega"   OR

                            ( f(i,j) - [f(i, j + 1) + f(i, j - 1) + f(i + 1, j) + f(i - 1, j)]/4 )    if (i,j) is contained in "Omega"

 Please and thank you for any help in advance <3


Hi all

In matlab software we have a command namely fmincon which minimizes any linear/nonlinear algebric equations subject to linear/nonlinear constraints.

Now my question is that: what is the same command in maple?or how can we minimize linear/nonlinear function subject to linear/nonlinear constraints in maple?

thanks a lot

I was required to purchase Maple 17 for my upcoming Calculus III course, and until now, I have been using my TI-Nspire CAS CX for all of my CAS needs.  I am going through various tutorials/labs in an effort to learn how to use the Maple 17 Software. As a part of this process, I am attempting to solve a system of equations and was told to use the following command:


in order to receive the answer 



Instead, I have received the following error message, which has no help attached to it through the help page.

solve({2*x+3*y = 7, 5*x+8*y = 9}, {x, y});
Warning, solving for expressions other than names or functions is not recommended.

I am hoping this has something to do with Mac vs. Windows software, and that it has a simple solution.  I would greatly appreciate any guidance!

Does anyone has any maple worksheet that generate surface using the PDE method described in this article?  I am trying to learn this method but I am not familiar with the mathematics to do it although the paper gives some description of it.  I hope someone can demonstrate the procedure in Maple.  Thanks

I need to maximize two multivariate objective functions (f(x1,y1,z1,t1) and g(x2,y2,z2,t2)) with inequality and nonnegativity constraints (x1, x2>0 and y1, z1, t1, y2, z2, t2 >=0). I am looking for parametric not numerical solutions.

What is the best way to find the solution to such a problem using maple?



I am completely new to Maple (and this kind of software in general).

I am just on my first steps of learning...but I quickly noticed, that if I write Pi and hit enter, I do not get

the well-known greek Pi-symbol. I get an ordinary "p" as the result.

I checked the greek-palette...nearly all items in this palette are ordinary letters.

Does anyone have an idea whats wrong?

BTW: I don`t know if it could have to do with that, but I use a german windows 7 installation.


Thank you,




I want to create a linearied model for a single or multi degree of freedom vibration system by MapleSim. i faced a lot of problem such as causalize ports, i search the user manual but i didn't find it useful. i attach a very simply one degree of freedom vibration system. i wondering if every one create a linearized model for it. my final goal is governing the equation and determine the natural frequency with nyquist plots. i have mapleSim 6.2 and Maple 17. Thanks



write down the mapple procedure that finds the shape operator plus
gauss and primative curvatores and determines the surface characteristic
of a parametically given surface

I just wanted to remind everyone that this quarter's Möbius App Challenge closes on March 31st.  The next prize to be awarded is an Xbox One Prize Pack.  Video games are supposed to be good for the brain, after all, so really, you owe it to yourself to enter.

To enter the contest, all you need to do is:

1) Create an interactive App in Maple

2) While in Maple, log-in to the MapleCloud through the MapleCloud palette.

3) Click on the Send Document to the Cloud button

4) Set the group to "Mobius@admin", then hit send.

The group is moderated, so it won't appear instantly, but once approved it will appear on the Möbius Project server, where people can interact with it through a web browser, in Maple, or download it for use with the free Maple Player.

Here are the full contest details and more information on creating and submitting Apps.

Good luck!


what is the best maple book? could every one introduce books which have studied about maple !?? which is the best due to everyones opinion ? tnx for answering.


I have a procedure which give an approximate solution for ode.

This our procedure

RKadaptivestepsize := proc (f, a, b, epsilon, N).

It's working ( afther some 3 mistake found by a member in Mapleprime).

Then I would like to compute the error between exact and approximate.

RKadaptivestepsize: compute the approximate solution

analyticsol: analytic solution


## here, I compute the error
for N from 2 by 2 to 500 do
dataerror:= N->evalf(abs(RKadaptivestepsize(f,0,1,epsilon,N)[1+N][2]-(eval(analyticsol, x = 1))));
##  sequence of data error
data[error] := [seq([N, dataerror(N)], N = 2 .. 500, 2)]:
if  data[error][k][2]<=epsilon then   
printf("%a  is the number of steps required using 3-step Runge Kutta Method to achieve an  eroor of 1e-6 .", k)
break ;
end if;   
end do;
end do;

But its gives an error.: Error, reserved word `error` unexpected

Have any one an idea.


I am trying to numerically evaluate the following integral


integral to solve


I have currently used the maple commands


int(exp(10*(-2*y^2+y^4))*exp(-10*(-2*z^2+z^4)), [z = -infinity .. y, y = -1 .. 0], numeric)

evalf(int(exp(10*(-2*y^2+y^4))*exp(-10*(-2*z^2+z^4)), [z = -infinity .. y, y = -1 .. 0]))

evalf(Int(exp(10*(-2*y^2+y^4))*exp(-10*(-2*z^2+z^4)), [z = -infinity .. y, y = -1 .. 0]))


but all of them return the integral unevaluated. Any help?


I'm doing some calculation reports in maple. These reports are to be submitted to various classification societies - which all have different requirements to the calculations.

I would like to make a report, where the class specific calculations would be append based on a selection of class in the main calculation.

How do I do this?


If I was using latex, matlab, APDL or something like that, I would do and *IF Class=class1, *INPUT class.calc, *ENDIF, but how to do this in maple?

Is there any possibility for maple 16 or  any version, to show steps for this kind of Differential Equation.


>diff(diff(psi(x),x),x)+ ((1/4)*(-3+lambda^2)/x^2)*psi(x)-I*lambda/x^2*psi(x)+E*psi(x)=0;

it has a Bessel solution, just want to check like Hint, if substitution method can be apply, just as FROBENIUS’METHOD works. Thanks
