Today's SMBC strip by Zach Weinersmith is a silly math joke but it was pretty much begging for implementation.

So, here is a simple brute force Maple program to compute the Fouriest transform of an integer.

fouriest := proc(n::posint, ob::posint:=10)
local b,f,cap,i,rdx,fc;



I have two differential equations describing a solar sail in 2D.

One is my radial direction and one is the tangential direction.

I have plotted r(t) and theta(t) but I want r(theta) so I have assigned my two differential equations and initial conditions, have my two plots for r and theta in terms of t and then I have used the following command to plot in polar coordinates:



I'm new in Maple and i've a project to do. I've to find at what time is 90% of the steady-state concentration of C achieved. And the eq is 

z'=k(1/2-z)(1/3-z), where k=0.3. 

So i had worked in Mathematica before and i know that it would look something like that in there: 

eqn1 = 0 == k (1/2 - z[t]) (1/3 - z[t])

DSolve[Evaluate[{eqn1}], z[t]].

But i have no idea how to find this 90%. I hope that someone will...

Hello everybody,

I just realised Maple is allowed for my upcoming exam after New Year.

My plan is to have templates of the most common math problems, I might encounter for quick solutions.

Anyway, I have run into a problem with Laplace shifted data, particularly initial value problems. I have been searching for HOURS, and feel like I have look up everything on google, maplesoft and other sites without succes.

I hope some of you are able to help me. The exercise is:



I am working on a Maple project and it require me to pass a differential equation in a specific order like

x'=y & y'=x^2.(It is differentaiting w.r.t 't'(say))

However when I convert the equation into string it converts something as

diff(x(t),t)=y(t) & diff(y(t),t)=x(t)^2


Is there any way to stop maple from evaluating into maple/math format?

Is there any way to pass an equation without changing it's existing form?...

I'm not sure if u have seen this website but i wonder if there is a better way to solve this problem using maple:


It is your task to deliever as much grain as possible from city A to city B. The cities are 1,000 miles apart. You initially have 10,000 pounds of grain. Your camel may carry up to 1,000 pounds and eats 1 pound of grain per mile traveled. You...

Hi all,

Here is the problem, I will try my best to describe it:


Firstly of all,




In this system, the 'j' is a time varying parameter, and the...


I was trying to find the generalized eigenvalues for the (3x3) matrix pair (P,G) defined below. (I have left everything in symbols with beta and kappa both of which are strictly positive real numbers). For some reason the command Eigenvalues(P,G) is only returning 2 generalized eigenvalues. Any ideas why it doesn't return 3?




Anyone knows how to use an expression like t^n, where t is a polynomial variable and n is an intager variable, in such a way that (t^n)/(t^m)=t^{n-m}? Actually, I would like to use it inside some package like polynomial tools, in order to normalize such expressions.

I want to graph the portion of the plane 2x + 3y + z = 6 that are located in the first octant of a xyz coordinate system. The following implicitplot3d should in principle do it:

I have a collection of functions defined either in terms of a single variable - call it r - or in terms of (r and) the other functions of r.

To be more specific, there are two free functions B(r) and N(r), a function theta defined in terms of N(r) and B(r) (and their derivatives) and r, and a free function V(theta).

Finally I have a function, call it f, written in terms of B(r) and N(r) (and their derivatives), r, and V(theta) and its derivatives with respect to both theta and r.

What are all the maths that are on this program?

Hello Maple experts,

 I want to find out k-th probability (denoted by c(k)) which is expressed as an integration of summation for values ranging from j=0 to k. The function is very complicated , I have attached the PDF for expressing the mathematical term properly.

I am able to find out the c(k) for a given value of k, if k is specified in the beginning of the maple program. But I am unable to make it generic form of k.

I have also attached the...

On a calculus 2 test I was given to review the students were asked to find the derivative of arccosh(x)*sqrt(1-x^2).  Maple gives the answer -arccosh(x)*x/sqrt(1-x^2)+sqrt(1-x^2)/(sqrt(x-1)*sqrt(x+1)).   This is the same answer, in a slightly...

Maplesoft has these interesting bits of Math on their website.  For example this one here

It is all nice and all but I would like to see some reference examples to maple for each one, a cool application worksheet that portrays each one nicely. 

Using the example link above I searched maplesoft application center for navier stokes...
