I would like to export some plots from a worksheet as vectorial picture.

However, I didn't find how to export plots as .svg ou .emf files. These files are accepted by visio which is the software I use for the creation of my figures.

Is it possible to export picture as a vectorial picture and yes, how ?

Moreover, I would like these kind of extensions that is to say .svg and .emf

Thanks a lot for your help.

Is it possible to subscript within a plot?

for example I have

this in principle is what I want but, the N is cursive while is O is not (and it's a bit shifted to the right, not right next to the [2] !???

Also I didnt find the meanings of mi(),mn(),mo(),mfenced()... in the help documentation which I stumbled across while googling.

for example in this case:


what do I need them for since without the mi it doesnt work?!

Is it possible to use latex notation within the plot options for more convenience?

BTW: When plotting a .ps or .eps the plotting device takes over all the features (like the examples above) but when using png instead it just prints the code behind it ( for example the `#mover(mi("x"),mi("~"))` ) and not would it should lead to

With the RationalFunctionTutor generated then modified code (see attached).  Is it possible to make linestyle=spacedash for the two vertical asymtotes?  By selecting the graph and choosing from the plot menu the linestyle can be changed, but is there a way to do this with commands in the program code?



I have a very simple function and I need to plot it. The plot is however not smooth and there are annoying cuts and steps which don't go away no matter how I set the options. This problem has been puzzling me for a while and I really appreciate any help.

The followings are all the possible options I could find, none seems to work. You can take a look at this file:


Hello everyone!

I am wondering why the Tabulate command does not work with Explore. E.g.:

Explore(`DocumentTools:-Tabulate`([plot(sin(a*x)), plot(cos(x-a))]), parameters = [[a = 0 .. 10, controller = slider]])

I know that I can display an array of plots with the display(Array([....])) which works fine with explore but Tabulate is another good way to display multiple plots and it gives better control over individual plots properties (e.g. setting different size to different plots). Is this a bug or Tabulate is just not meant to work in that context?  

Hi and thanks in advance

I have a function like

w=f(r) on the other hand

z=g(r) wher r is common between these two.

how i could plot w in term of z?


I would like to plot a cone where I can change the vertex angle directly. I would also to be able to change the size of the cone. I have tried:

cone([r*cos(phi)*sin(theta), r*sin(phi)*sin(theta), r*cos(theta)], phi = 0 .. 2*Pi, r = 0 .. 1, theta = (1/6)*Pi, coords = spherical)

but this gives me the following error:

Error, (in plot3d) unexpected options: [[r*cos(phi)*sin(theta), r*sin(phi)*sin(theta), r*cos(theta)], phi = 0 .. 2*Pi, r = 0 .. 1, theta = (1/6)*Pi]



How can I do to suppress all the complex components of a vector ? Is there a simple code to do this?

For example, I would like to replace the complex components with zero.

If the considered vector is a:= [2+I,2,5], i would like to obtain after modifications amod:= [0,2,5] ou amod  [Nothing,2,5]

Nota :

The origin of my issue is to be able to plot points with the following syntax :

pointplot([tp,xp,symbol = solidcircle,color=black,symbolsize = 10): where xp is a vector with, sometimes, some complex components. 

I would like to plot the points only for the real components of xp

Thanks a lot for your help



I created a regular 2D without specifying the number of points. I tried to change its style from "line" to "point", but i cannot see the symbols because there are too many points and so all i see is a thick black line. Is replotting with less points the only way, or can I interactively reduce the number of points? 

I have the following problem : plotting with the squareroot function somehow stops showing the whole graph as soon as the range of the input allows values less than -10, I have attached two pictures that show the transition:


This is still fine:


But here is an example where the graph is cropped:

How can I change this to get the whole graph ? Thanks a lot for your help !!



Hi I'm not really sure how to phrase this but I'm doing projectile motion and I'm try to graph the solutions for v_0 by theta_0.

This is for the infamous Calc 2 Goblet Maple Project

I have tried everything changed all the numbers and got nowhere or worse results. The only thing that accurately works is the example project:

(0, 1.5) and end at (0.5, 0.2). which equals f1(x)=-2.6x+1.5

and f2:=x->0.2+0.05*sin(2*(x-0.5)) which is really 0.2+0.05sin(2x-1)

The goal is to change the example project so it becomes something of my own creation. 

When I change f2:=x->0.4+0.05*sin(2*x-0.5)) it is at least attached but forms a sharp dip down first then connects at the point when it should be smooth curve. It seems you can do anything to the other curve

x -> a x^3 + b x^2 + c x + d

166.375 a + 30.25 b + 5.5 c + d = 0.3727989445

343 a + 49 b + 7 c + d = 1

421.875 a + 56.25 b + 7.5 c + d = 0.9

729 a + 81 b + 9 c + d = 1.6


F:=x->piecewise(x<0.5,f1(x),x>=0.5 and x<5.5,f2(x),x>=5.5,f3(x));


So how can this be fixed?

I have a function c(k), I want to graph it where the x-axis has the units k/K (where K is a constant, about 0.0027). I was wondering how that is possible to do because for the life of me I can't figure out how to get maple to allow for relative units like that. Here's my code:



c := sqrt(9.8*K/k+0.7197e-1*k/K*(1/1000))



plot(C, k = 0 .. 4, 0 .. 4)



Hi all, 

I have two inter-related expressions of the form,

(i) T=f(w)

(ii) E=g(w)

where the limits of w in both expressions are same. Now I need to plot a graph T Vs E

Any suggestions???

Some time ago, I have used the Virtual 3D Solar System code to plot a few interesting figures with asteroids. It can be found here: . I plotted the asteroid belt as a closed, warped surface according to how the asteroids are inclined, with the arguments of perihelion and longitude of ascending node where they cross the equatorial plane to the other celestial hemisphere. The plot was only done with axes in units of distances, for convenience's sake in astronomical units of 1 AU = 150 million km.

But I am strongly wondering if it were somehow possible to alter or adjust the code such that there is a zylinder placed around such plot where one can see celestial coordinates (Rectascension, Declination) on the inside, so that if one wants to know what coordinates an orbit of a specific asteroid has that one can look in the chart and go out on the balcony and set the telescope to these coordinates. Of course the asteroid most likely is not there on his entire orbital path, but you have at least the location where the asteroid CAN be. Would this be possible to plot?

This probably doesn't work if a closed cylinder is placed around the Virtual Solar System. But how about scrolling the cylinder and the orbits flat on a 2D plot?
