Dr. Sarah J. Greenwald, Appalachian State University, and Dr. Andrew Nestler, Santa Monica College have put together a site about mathematics and The Simpsons,including an exhaustive list of all math references on the show, relevant images, and the math background of the writers. They use this material to introduce concepts, motivate students and reduce math anxiety, apparently. Aside from its potential educational value, it's fun. See Simpson's Math. eithne
Professor Mark Bridges of Northeastern University has been compling a blog of commentary on various mathematical references that one encounters on the TV show Numb3rs. See his BLOG site and a recent news article.
I'd like to gauge interest in an online session on authoring Maple documents using new features in Maple 10: document blocks, embedded components, tables, autoexec code, task templates, embedded assessment, 2d math, etc. Would you participate in such a (free) session? -Laurent
Similarly to searching of digits of π, Maple can access other Internet resources. In particular, here is an example of accessing MAGMA through William Stein's online SAGE/MAGMA/PARI calculator,
Hi. There is a command called genvecs in mathcad and i wonder if there is something similar in maple. Or can somebody tell me how to make the same in maple. Regards M
It is hard to follow up the Math Rap, but the Pi Song is pretty geeky too. And it is kind of catchy. I wish it went on longer. Link (Via Trixie)
I ran across this amusing article on a recent poll of British scientists on who's greater, Einstein or Newton? Of course you'll have to take the results with a "grain of salt" as it was not nearly as scientific as our own poll... :-)
The Maple V Share Library was a wonderful facility for mathematicians comprising some 140 Maple routines, packages and worksheets written by Maple users and contributed freely to the Maple community. John Maplenut has written a short program which allows the Maple V Share Library for Windows to be accessed directly from all versions of Maple up to and including version 10. You can access the Package from the Maple Application Center or from John Maplenut - Updated Maple V Share Library.
Let's all congratulate Carl Friedrich Gauss for winning our prestigious Greatest Mathematician contest. Our next poll brings us back down to earth and requests your input and comments on what facilities you work with most in Maple. T4.
Hi! I am trying to convert an entire Maple worksheet into Fortran code. At the moment, I have managed to convert a specific program using with(codegen): f:=proc(x) function end proc fortran(f) But this method can only convert one function at a time. Can someone please help me to convert an entire worksheet into Fortran or other languages? I have text and math in my worksheet, and I'm using 2D math in Maple 10. Thanks :)
Additionally to my previous post: First example returns (mathematically) wrong result,
eval(diff(v(z), z), [v = (x->x*H), z = H])
Equivalent works fine (just because multiplier "a" leads to implicit conversion of diff to D).
eval(diff(v(a*z), z), [v = (x->x*H), z = H, a = 1])
And the most exiting example (I think, that result can't be predicted by Maple developers also ):)))
eval(diff(v(x, y), x, y), {x = H, y = H})
         (D[1,1](v))(H,H)+2 (D[1,2](v))(H,H)+(D[2,2](v))(H,H)
Functional analog works, of course, without any errors.
Hi, I think I will go crazy if I have to type
maple("printf(MathML:-ExportPresentation( ... ))");
one more time. It would be great to have an abbreviate version of this like
or something. Or how about a function available in the question bank editor to translate short LaTeX phrases into mathml? This would solve a huge number of my Maple T.A. issues. Anyway, along these lines, what I'd really like to do right now is ask my students about double integrals and display something like $\int\int_R f(x,y)\ dA$ Any suggestions? Can I use mathml() to display symbols like the integral?
Matthias Kawski's site contains a rich collection of Maple worksheets and applications. In addition, there is an extensive collection of info and tools for math and other software.
Edwin Clark of the University of South Florida compiled this nice list of links to the home pages of key people within the Maple communities. Some of these folks are part of the current research network that feeds Maple development. Others are some of the stars of the user community.
Out of curiosity, can those of you who voted "Other" in the current Greatest Mathematician poll share with us who you would have like to have seen? There are 8 of you who voted "Other". T4.
