Dear Maple experts,

I would like to generate population data that is the best possible approximation of a multivariate normal distribution with a specified covariance matrix and vector of means. I do not want to draw a sample from a multivariate distribution, but I want the population values itself which are approximately multivariate normal distributed. The size of the datamatrix should be limited, otherwise I could draw a huge sample from a multivariate normal distribution. For instance, I would like to generate a 200 by 6 data matrix that is the best (or at least good enough) approximation of a MVN distribution. For a bivariate normal distribution one could calculate the probalities of a grid by integrating the density, but for six variables that seems undoable.

Before trying the invent the wheel again, I think I will ask this question to experts, because it is unlikely that there is no already existing algorithm that does the job pretty well.

Thanks in advance,

Harry Garst

I need to maximize two multivariate objective functions (f(x1,y1,z1,t1) and g(x2,y2,z2,t2)) with inequality and nonnegativity constraints (x1, x2>0 and y1, z1, t1, y2, z2, t2 >=0). I am looking for parametric not numerical solutions.

What is the best way to find the solution to such a problem using maple?

Say I have a polynomial x^5 + 4xy^4 + 2y^3 + x*y^2 + x^2 + y + 3

Can I truncate it up to total degree 3 (for example), so 2y^3 + x*y^2 + x^2 + y + 3

I have a multivariate polynomial P (written with the order "tdeg")in the (x_i)_i ; the coefficients are functions of the (a_i)_i. I'd want the set of the monomials that appear in the development of P. For instance P=a_1xy^2z^3+a_2x^4yz^2+a_3 is associated to {xy^2z^3,x^4yz^2,1}. Does there exist a command to do that ?

In a second time, I'd want the coefficients of {xy^2z^3,x^4yz^2,1} in the same order. Does there exist a command to do that ?

Thanks in advance.

In Maple 17, the Student MultivariateCalculus package has been augmented with fifteen new commands relevant for defining and manipulating lines and planes. There already exists a functionality for this in the geom3d package whose structures differ from those in the new Student packages. Students...

I have a multivariate polynomial equation, in that somehow I know the coeffcients, using this information, I want to extract the variables. This will be the opposite of coeffs function.

for e.g. I have 3*x3 + 5*x4

Given 3 and 5, I want to extract x3 and x4.

In a related question to this answer (http://www.mapleprimes.com/questions/129140-Surface-Fitting#comment129195). How can we take partial derivatives of the multivariable fitting function (in the example above, the function B(a,b)?It seems like the package CurveFitting only allows to numerically evaluate the fitted function when we use ArrayInterpolation, but I assume deep in the code there must be an analytic ...

I am trying to solve the so called Bethe ansatz equations in Mathematical Physics.

I have four multivariate polynomials equations with four unknown p_i(x[1],x[2],x[3],x[4]) i=1,2,3,4; which have integer coefficients. The equations are mixed; P_i is linear in x[j] for x[j]\ne x[i]; and x[i] is of order 10. Due to this structure, I first eliminate x[4] from these equations. Then use resultant to eliminate x[3], I got error messages (invalid series, in gcd...

Greetings All

I have several equations and each have their own individual frequencies and amplitudes. I would like to sum the equations together and adjust ONLY the individual phases, phase1,phase2, and phase3 to keep the total amplitude value of eq_total under a specific value like 0.8. I know I can normalize the signal or change the vertical offset, but for my purposes I need to have the amplitude controlled by changing/finding the values for just...
