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)

Hello, forgive me if I used bad english, I am not a native speaker.


Anyhow: I have to decide the set of coordinates looking at the grafs intersections.  (I hope you understand that)


This is my function: f(x)=1/4*x3-x2-x+4


When you plot the function you see that the intersections is (-2,0) (2,0) and (4,0)


BUT I have to use a command to find these three intersections, plzz help me!


THANK YOU indeed.



[point of] intersection

Hi everyone,


I'm trying to solve the following eqauation but Maple gives me the answer (( RootOf(mexp(-_Z*(m-1))*d^2-theta+_Z*theta-theta*c*t__kj) ))


The equation is:

solve(mexp(-(m-1)*t__ij)*d^2-theta+theta*t__ij-theta*(sum(t__kj, k = 1 .. c))-m*eta*(diff((1-1/exp(t))^m, t)) = 0, t__ij);


Could you please help me??


What is the meaning rootOF? Is there any explicit solution to that equation??


Thank you for your help

For those who are running Maple and/or MapleSim on the Mac, and who may have missed an earlier question on this site, we wanted to let you know that there are some problems with running Maple and MapleSim on the new Mac OS, Mac OS X 10.11 (El Capitan). We’re working on a solution, which we expect will be ready in a few weeks. We’ll keep you posted, but in the meantime, please delay updating your Mac OS for now to avoid problems.



I want to solve these two differential equations. I have the initial conditions:
What am I doing wrong?


I would like to know : how I can get all the contents of the module GetMultibody of MapleSim?

Is there in classic maple a function enabling me to ask the content of a module ?

Thank a lot for your help.


Can Maple compare irrational numbers?

A simple command like   if(2<√5,0,1)   is not working for me. 

The function hypergeom([2/3,2/3,2/3],[-1/3,4/3],z) has radius of convergence 1 and real coefficients.

But Maple tells me evalf(hypergeom([2/3, 2/3, 2/3], [-1/3, 4/3], 99/100),50);

is -138.999 + 0.0012 I

It should be more like −138.9962313171333091754979138344422738025

I want to work (cross products, differentiating and simplificating) of three dimensional vector functions.

But I'd like to work with them as vector, not as components. Is it available in Maple?

The GroupTheory package in Maple includes facilities for working with finitely presented groups - groups defined by finitely many generators and defining relations.  We now have a video tutorial that covers the basics of this aspect of the package.  As always, we appreciate feedback and suggestions regarding this feature, or new features that you would like to see in the GroupTheory package.


i am trying to put u[0](zeta):=0 in maple but it gives an error, however it accepts u[0]:=0 but i have to involve zeta in it. help please.

 here is my program 

bc1 := u(x, y)-0;
dydxf := (1/2)*(-u[m+2](zeta)-3*u[m](zeta)+4*u[m+1](zeta))/h; 
bc1 := subs(diff(u(x, y), x) = subs(m = 0, dydxf), u(x, y) = u[0](zeta), x = 0, bc1);
eq[0] := bc1;

on pressing enter a new window opens of title

clerify expression.

parts of expressions are ambigous. please select one of the suggested meanings.

function defination or remember table assignment.

then it gives the error below
Error, unable to parse


Maple 2015 has a new command, dataplot, for plotting datasets. It was designed to be easy to use and it offers several new features that are not available in Maple's other plotting commands. A few months ago, I recorded a video that gives an overview of the command. If you have any questions or comments about dataplot, feel free to post here. I'm also including the worksheet that is shown in the video:

Maple’s Code Generation makes it possible to translate your Maple code to various other programming languages including C, Python, and several others. In Maple 2015, we added a new Code Generation target to one of my other personal favourite languages, R. R is a programming language designed for statistical computing and graphics, so no code translation from Maple to R would be complete without attempting to translate as many commands as possible from Maple’s Statistics package. 

Translating code from one language to another is tricky business. Maple 2015 represented the first time that any Code Generation target language added the ability to translate commands from the Statistics package. With R, we found that many common statistics commands had almost a one-to-one mapping, such as Statistics:-Mean = mean, but several others were much more complicated, including several commands for dealing with probability functions that did not have direct mappings due to differences in how the systems handle symbolic probability functions.

A list of statistics commands that can be translated from Maple to R can be found here.

In addition to assisting me recall the correct syntax in R, having worked with CodeGeneration[R] for several months now, I find that one of my most common uses for Maple’s code generation to R is simply to pass data between the systems. A simple example:

 CodeGeneration:-R( LinearAlgebra:-RandomMatrix( 5, 2 ) );

translates to the following in R:

 cg <- matrix(c(-4,27,8,69,99,29,44,92,-31,67),nrow=5,ncol=2)

To see a couple more short examples, here’s a short video that I recorded on Code Generation to R:

A little known fact about Code Generation is that the translation files can be viewed in from the “samples” directory in your Maple install directory. Similar to many of Maple’s packages, you can view all of the source code that Code Generation uses for its translations. For example, you can view the translations for the commands that I mentioned above from the “” file inside of your “%MapleInstallDir%/ samples/CodeGeneration/R” directory.

Should you have any feedback on this translation, or any other, please feel free to contact us. We’re also on the hunt for our next code generation targets, so let us know what other languages you would like to see added as Code Generation targets.

Hello guys, I have a question. Is there any possibility to calculate two or more procedures at same time in the maple18 ?. I m thinking about using of the Grid or threads tools.

My problem is:

Given two functions/ procedures, f1(x,y) and f2(x,y). I need make an parallel computation of f1 and f2 and after i need get

f3 = f1+f2.

I am very grateful for the help.
