Hi all. I am using Maple 18.

1. Does Maple only output an answer, or can it be made to display the steps it took to achieve the result, in a way that is logical and understandable by the user? For example, I would like to see it display steps when integrating or differentiating, or dividing a polynomial by another polynomial. Basically any process that involve simplifyinf or factorisation.

2. I am trying to divide x^2 + 5x + 9 by x+2, but all Maple displays is the expression

How can I make it do the polynomial division and output the steps it took? I tried using simplify and evaluate from the context menu but the output is still just the expression.

3. Has something happened to this site? It was working fine in Opera until two days ago, and has sinmce started displaying "Error generating page" where the replies to questions should be. No problems with the "posts" section, only in the "questions" section.

Thanks in advance.


Hi all,

i have the following problem:

i had create this tiny procedure to compute the berstein base elements:

Berstein base

And so i would like print space, between B(i,n,t) and the formula corresponing, without quotes :D

In other word i would an output like this:

B(i,n,t),      ,(formula)


Thank you in advance :)




I'm using Maple 12 to solve a system of differential equations numerically. I first define my system as "sys1" and then use the command:

sol1 := dsolve(sys1, numeric, output = listprocedure, range = 0 .. 2000)

I'm using output=listprocedure because that's what the Maple's Help says if I want to use individual solutions. So my differential equation system has 8 solutions, and I label them a1(t) through a8(t). Now after solving the system I want to be able to evaluate, e.g., a1(t) at t=100.

I then follow the Maple's Help by defining:


But then if I do:


I don't get the expected numerical value. Instead I get a1(100) as the result.

What I managed to do however was to plot f1(t) with the following command:


So it seems that I did it partially right. However according to the Maple's Help I should be able to extract numerical values with f1(100). 

I'd appreciate any suggestions!

My problem is i am working with a very large randomly generated output, generated using maple's builtin in random generating functions. I have the output which i want to investigate but i want to be able to reproduce this result when i save and close the worksheet. Since the list of generators is very long copy pasting is not very nice and i donot know the seed of these generaters. I want to ask if i can store the values in variable in the worksheet so that when i open the worksheet i can get the same random generates stored in the variable.


I need you to help me in writting procedure with input "r" ( order of derivative) and some coefficients seq(alpha[i],i=1..N).  My code work very well, need only put all the element in procedure with output The Taylor series obtained in last line of my code and the order of error.  I want the procedure return the coefficients beta used in the series and the order of Error  and the coefficients beta[i]

May thinks.


I will not modify my previous question: only I add this remark. I tried to write these lines of procedure.

I need only to add( if the procedure is true) these lines in my procedure.  These lines gives the degree of error computed in the code, but when I put these lines in the codes, there is an error. Thanks for your help.

Degree := degree(Error,stepsize);
    if (showorder) then:
       print(cat(`This stencil is of order `,Degree));
    if (showerror) then:
       print(cat(`This leading order term in the error is `,Error));
    convert(D[r$n](f)(vars) = stencil,diff);




I have a plot of a sinusoidal function(cos_phi) which changes with incrementing values of variable k. When this function goes above 1 or below -1 I would like to have the range of k for which it occurs outputed somehow. Would anybody know how to do this?

Dear all;

Please give me few minutes to correct the output of this procedure.Many thinks. 
We will solve the waves equations: diff(f(x,y,t),t$2)=c^2*( diff(f(x,y,t),x$2) +diff(f(x,y,t),y$2));  where (x,y,t) in [0,1]*[0,1]*[0,T] using finite difference.  With Initial boundary conditions: [u(0,y,t)=u(1,y,t)=0],   [u(x,0,t)=u(x,1,t)=0],  [u(x,y,0)=f(x,y),   diff(u(x,y,0),t)=g(x,y)]... The code is done and perfect but....The output of this procedure is Nothing. How can I plot the solution...

local Ft, Fx,Fy,x,y, c1,c2,c,j,k,i,u;
Ft := floor(Tf/dt)+1;
Fx := floor(1/dx)+1;
Fy := floor(1/dy)+1;
c1 := (c*dt/dx)^2;
c2 := (c*dt/dy)^2;
#Initial position
for j from  1 to Fx do

   u[j,k,2] := f(-dx + j*dx, -dy +k*dy);
end do;
end do;

# Boundary values j=1
for i from  1 to Ft +1 do
      for k from 1 to Fy do
         u[1,k,i] := 0;
      end do;

      end do;
   for j from 1 to Fx do
         u[j,Fy,i] := 0;
      end do;
end do;

for i from 3 to Ft + 1 do
  for j from 2 to Fx-1 do
    for k from 2 to Fy-1 do
u[j, k, i] := 2*u[j,k,i-1] - u[j,k,i-2] + c1*(u[j+1,k,i-1]-2*u[j,k,i-1]+u[j-1,k,i-1]) + c2*(u[j,k+1,i-1] - 2*u[j, k, i-1] + u[j,k-1, i-1]);
end do;
end do;
end do;
return Matrix([seq([seq([seq(u[i,j,k],i=1..Fx)],j=1..Fy)],k=1..Ft)]):
end proc:

## Try the test

Hi, i'm wondering if theres anything i can do printf and print and have the outputs on the same line. I want the string wihtout any quotations so i think i can only do printf to get this, but then i'm putting an entry out of an array after this. This is a small example out of my code, i would like the output to be all on one line:

The synchronising vector is (S[j-1]) The synchronising word is (X[j-1]) The length of the synchronising word is ...


if (sync=true) then 
printf("The Synchronising vector is"); print(S[j-1]);
printf("The sychronising word is");
printf("The length of the synchronising word is");
else printf("There is no synchronising word"); 
end if;

 At the moment its outputing each print on a new line.

Any help would be much appreciated, thanks.


Dear all


Please, I need you help, to make a simple procedure with two output.  I try this simple code :

test:= proc(a,b)

local variable .....;

for i from 1 to 10 do


end do

retur  fff;

return ggg;

end proc

Then I do  : test(a,b) but I get only ggg and not fff


Any help please




I have some data:

Matrix(10, 2, {(1, 1) = 0, (1, 2) = 0, (2, 1) = .5, (2, 2) = 3.25, (3, 1) = 1.0, (3, 2) = 5.82, (4, 1) = 1.5, (4, 2) = 7.50, (5, 1) = 2.0, (5, 2) = 8.79, (6, 1) = 2.5, (6, 2) = 9.83, (7, 1) = 3.0, (7, 2) = 10.66, (8, 1) = 3.5, (8, 2) = 11.35, (9, 1) = 4.0, (9, 2) = 11.94, (10, 1) = 4.5, (10, 2) = 12.46})


I want Maple to make a trendline fitting a Logarithmic function. I can make it output some function with this:

LeastSquares(`<,>`(.5, 1.0, 1.5, 2.0, 2.5, 3.0, 3.5, 4.0, 4.5), `<,>`(3.25, 5.82, 7.50, 8.79, 9.83, 10.66, 11.35, 11.94, 12.46), x, curve = a+b*ln(x))

It outputs:



But please notice, the dataset in the function does not have the first 0 and 0. If i do that:

LeastSquares(`<,>`(0, .5, 1.0, 1.5, 2.0, 2.5, 3.0, 3.5, 4.0, 4.5), `<,>`(0, 3.25, 5.82, 7.50, 8.79, 9.83, 10.66, 11.35, 11.94, 12.46), x, curve = a+b*ln(x))

It outputs: 

Error, (in Matrix) numeric exception: division by zero


Besides that, i need the R-squard value for determinating how well it fits.


If i do the same thing i Excel the data set will give a formular: 5.5464ln(x)-0.2175 with a R-sward value of 0.9985.


How can i do this i maple?


Thanks in Advance!

Hallo guys,

I am newbie in Mapple, i could not solve the problem yet, here is my little function. I want to estimate beta with the Maximum Likelihood Estimation with Weibull: 

> MaximumLikelihoodEstimate(Weibull(beta, eta), F1); F1 := Vector([1500, 1750, 2250, 4000, 4300, 5000, 7000]);
print(`output redirected...`); # input placeholder
[beta = HFloat(HFloat(undefined)), eta = HFloat(HFloat(undefined))



May someone help me why i just get HFloat(undefined)  ?


Kind regards

Is it possible to display each element of a sequence on a new line?

The default behaviour, obviously, is to display each element on the same line separated by commas, and wrapping to a new line as required by screen space. This is somewhat unsightly when the elements of the sequence contain long equations or expressions, and impacts readability because the commas don't stand out as effective separators between elements.

For example:

B := b=2;

C := c=3;

A := B,C;


b=2, c=3


Is there a way to display each element on a new line?

For example:





Is there another data type or a simple expression that could achieve this effect?

Is there a way of increasing the spacing between the maple input and output?



this question has been asked several times here already accoruding to the search function, but I didn't find an actual answer to it.

My Maple 15 gives outlarge numbers without scientific notation, so even 10^20 would be displayed as 1000....000  (20 zeroes). It seems like this is not the standard, so at one point I might have changed the way Maple displays the output, and cannot remember anymore how.

How can I tell Maple to display the output in scientiffic notation, and how can I set up the threshold of powers of ten, when this is done. (so that e.g. 100 still gets disaplyed as 100, and not as 1*10^2, but anything above gets displayed in scientific notation).

I know that I can right click on the output to change it's display form. But I want to change this generally, so I dont have to do this for any single numerical output I get.

I use Maple 15, running in Mac OS.

Thanks for help!

I recently installed Maple 17 from my university and greek letters do not work. For instance if I type alpha or any other greek letter, Maple just outputs a capital A in a box. I still have Maple 15 installed and it works on there and all the preferences seem the same.
