Dear All,

I'm trying to solve the following in Maple.

minimize(int(0.1e-3+.5*t+0.2e-2*t^2-b*t-a, t = 0 .. 300), location = true)

But Maple told me that the answer is

Float(-infinity), {[{a = Float(infinity), b = Float(infinity)}, Float(-infinity)]}.

I really need to get a kind of numerical answer. Would it be possible? Please Help me!!


I have this PDE and was wondering how I can get Maple to solve it


with conditions u(0,t)=u(l,t)=0 and u(x,0)=ut(x,0)=0






ds(t)/dt = a*s(t)*(1 - s(t) - m(t)) - b*s(t) 

dm(t)/dt = c*s(t) - d*m(t)


need to find steady state of this system ( finding this simultaneously) in maple 


How can you do it? 

Ever year about this time, somewhat geeky holiday-themed content makes the rounds on the internet.  And I realized that even though I have seen much of this content already, I still enjoy seeing it again. (Why wouldn’t I want to see a Dalek Christmas tree every year?)

So in the spirit of internet recycling, here are a couple of older-but-still-fun Maple applications with a Christmas/holiday theme for your enjoyment.

The Physics of Santa Claus

Other examples (old or new) are most welcome, if anyone wants to share.



I am trying to solve the boundary value problem (1-x^2)*y'' - 2*x*y' +12*y = 0 with y(-1) = -1 and y(1) = 1.  I have not used Maple much, but from some web surfing, it seems like the following inputs should work:

de := (1-x^2)*(diff(y(x), `$`(x, 2)))-2*x*(diff(y(x), x))+12*y(x) = 0

Y := dsolve(de, y(-1) = -1, y(1) = 1)

However, when I input these lines, I get the error: Error(in dsolve), found wrong extra argument(s): y(-1) = -1, y(1) = 1

Does this mean that Maple can't solve this problem?  Is my syntax wrong?  I would appreciate any help.





I found the page:,

Comparing with MMa&Matlab, Maple is abit slow.

The author guess the reason is Intel MKL.

I searched the help page,,

found this info:

Intel® MKL Copyright © 1999, 2000-2008 Intel Corporation. All rights reserved.

 Does this means the Intel MKL in maple is a 6 years old product?

Is this important?

I want to know.


When I run a maple program which take a long time (in command line), I have this kind of message every second:

"memory used=43867.3MB, alloc=147.3MB, time=856.28"

Does there exist any way to avoid this display ?

Thanks in advance.

Hi everyone, I have been trying to plot the Taylor Polynomial approximation with the following code. However, my maple crushes everytime I run it. I indexed some of the variables to get the plot. The code works fine without the index. What did I do wrong?

y := array(1 .. 2);

Digits := 10;

n := 30;

h := .1;

T := 0;

X := 1; 

f := (x, t) -> 1/(3*x(t)-t-2); 

one := 1/(3*x(t)-t-2);

two := diff(f(x, t), t);

first := diff(x(t), t)


for k to n do

y[1] := subs(t = T(k), x(T(k)) = X(k), one);

y[2] := subs(first = y[1], t = T, x(T(k)) = X(k), two);

X[k+1] := X+sum(y[i]*h^i/factorial(i), i = 1 .. 2);

T[k+1] := T+h

end do;


data := [seq([T[n], X[n]], n = 0 .. 30)];

p[2] := plot(data, style = point, color = blue);

p[3] := plot(data, style = line, color = blue);
display(p[2],  p[3])


The code without Index (which works fine)

y := array(1 .. 2);

Digits := 10;

n := 30;

h := .1;

T := 1;

X := .1547196278;

f := (x, t) -> 1/(3*x(t)-t-2); 

one := x(t)^4*e^t-(1/3)*x(t);

two := diff(f(x, t), t);

first := diff(x(t), t);

for k to n do

y[1] := subs(t = T, x(T) = X, one);

y[2] := subs(first = y[1], t = T, x(T) = X, two);

X := X+sum(y[i]*h^i/factorial(i), i = 1 .. 2);

T := T+h

end do

I'm using MAPLE files, and a little to bored to run all commands in it.

Instead of it would be a bit easier to make a package.

Is there any post here how can I do it?

Strings := {"buffalo", "zebra", "aardvark", "aardwolf", "anteater", "antelope", "bumblebee"};
{"buffalo", "zebra", "aardvark", "aardwolf", "anteater",

"antelope", "bumblebee"}
CP := {seq(seq(StringTools:-Take(x, StringTools:-CommonPrefix(x, y)), x in Strings), y in Strings)};
P := table(map(proc (x) options operator, arrow; x = "" end proc, Strings));
for x in CP do for y in `minus`(CP, {x}) do if `and`(StringTools*IsPrefix(y, x), `implies`(assigned(P[x]), StringTools*IsPrefix(P[x], y))) then P[x] := y end if end do end do;
Error, cannot determine if this expression is true or false: StringTools*IsPrefix("a", "")


Hi I tried to apply these command in maple to see hoe cluster graphic after that can work .. but i face this problem ,


I am a begginer in maple working on it for a term paper to demonstrate it is ability to view the cluster analysis .


if u have any benefcial resources I ll be so happy.


thanks very much

How to write a procedure to find the product of two different primes

The ability of Maple to solve differential equations is unsurpassed, but when the solutions appear in terms of Heun functions that result is disappointing because it is either difficult or impossible to convert those functions to other functions more commonly used and for which plots are readily generated.

Specifically, does any reader have a suggestion what to do with Heun C and Heun G functions?  In principle, they seem to be related to 1F1 and 2F1 hypergeometric functions, but the conversion seems not to succeed, and it is not obvious how to make it succeed.  In both cases of interest, the literature contains hints of solutions in other functions.

It seems that a solution of a differential equation in terms of Heun functions is not a solution at all.


I'm sorry, a few das ago I asked about it. Problamy my question was unclear.
I've decieded asking again.

I need a prcocedure (or contitional loops/sequences) which allow me to put values which are equivalent
to symbols into the array. The value are taken from eight diferent list. 

I enclose maple worksheet and screenshoot with explanation what I need.

I wil be appreciated for any help.

How can I plot a vertical line say x = a in Maple 15 worksheet?
