Hi all

 

I am trying to maximize a function f(x,y,z,w) in terms of x. (Only x is treated as a variable, and the others are treated as parameters).

However, all I know is that y,z,w they are parameters and they are non-negative. I have already tried with the "optmization help page" from maplesoft's website, and it looks like it will search the range of x,y,z,w, and it will return numerical values at which this function is maximized. 

 

 

However, what I want is instead a close-form solution of x=g(y,z,w) that will maximize the function.   In other words, I would like to keep the parameter in symbolic forms. 

 

Can Maple do that?

Maplesoft is holding its first ever Virtual User Summit on Feb. 27.  You’ll be able to watch presentations by both Maplesoft and Maplesoft customers, ask questions, have discussions in the lounge with other attendees, and even enter a draw, all from the comfort of your own home or office.

Here’s the agenda.  We’ll release more detailed information on speakers and session times in the next couple of weeks.

For more information and to register:  Maplesoft Virtual User Conference

We're looking forward to seeing you there. (Well, "seeing you" :-))

Hey all new to Maplesoft my question is this;

I started to notice that Maplesoft web site is not in English any more. This makes it hard to read for me. (it seems to be in French?)  I was wondering why this change?

I think it is best to keep it in the English language, since English is the most common language. I visit the site from the US where I live, and I use the same browser, firefox, same OS, windows 7, and I have changed nothing on my end. Here is a screen shot:
