Hi guys,

I'm studying a system of six differential equations. Given the fact that the system cannot be solved symbolically, I've tried the numeric procedure, and it works. I proceeded like this :


then i checked if maple could calculate the solutions for given values of t. It works for t=0, t=0.5, t=1,t=2,...,t=5. The solutions are all real numbers.

But when i try to draw a graphic representation of the solutions, it doesn't work. I do :


Then :


(The square brackets are indices)

Now maple answers that it is "unable to evaluate the function to numeric values in the region". I went to the help page but no solution seems to work. I can't figure it out by myself. Does anybody notice something wrong with my code ?

Thank you for your time,

Best regards,


I want to plot this contour 4x^2+9y^2=160  onto the same f(x,y)=4x^2+9y^2.  The error I keep getting is

Error, (in plot3d) first argument must be either in standard or parametric form


Hi there,

I've created some nice 3D-plots. I want to export them and insert them in LaTex. Exporting to EPS gives me a zero-byte-file but no printable data.

I've already read that I'm not the first to have this issue and there is obviously a work-around by enabling the Classic-Worksheet-mode. Unfortanely this mode appears to be not available in Maple 17 under MAC OSX. 

Is there another way to solve the problem?
Would help me a lot.


Hi, is it possible to instantly start the display of plot animations after they are generated in maple? I searched for answers in the documentation and on the internet but couldn't find a solution. I would like to skip the step of manually clicking the plot and the "play animation" button.

Hello everyone,

I want to inseret a text arrow in the graph obtained by plot command to show increasing or decreasing trends of the graph, but I could not find any option to insert the textarrow or textbox in the graph. 

Thanks in advance.

I'm trying to add a label to a plot and need the derivative to be represented as a dot. My typesetting rules are set to extended, and it works in a worksheet but not in the plot. See attached image. The code to generate it is:

#the output is shown with a dot over phi

#derivative in label not shown as a dot
plot(sin( t), t=0..10, labels=["t", typeset(diff(phi(t),t))], labeldirections=[horizontal, vertical]);

any ideas?



this seems to work... ( i will leave this question here as it might come in handy to someone else).

plot(sin( t), t=0..10, labels=["t", Typesetting:-Typeset(diff(phi(t),t))], labeldirections=[horizontal, vertical]);

Is it a bug that using the first variant does not work? any ideas from the experts?


I have 2 sets of data and I need to plot them as histograms on the same axis(superimposed). Is it possible to do it using Maple 12? Right now I only know how to plot them in different axis.



Hi is there a way to identify curves in your plot? Especially when you dont know it yourself?


For example, I have 10 polynomials all order 5 and up, whilst I can trial and error identify which one is which it is very inefficient.

I used to use Mathematica, and I could manually label the curves with color which allows to see which curve is which. I assume there is something of the sort for Maple?

how to export a plot with its points  (x,y) from maple to excel

Please how can Maple plot both analytic and numerical solutions on the same axes for this problem

U(x,t)= 2/3f(x+t)+1/3f(x-2t)+(1/3pi)(sin(pi(x+t))+(1/3pi)(sin(pi(x-2t)),

f(x)=1-x,abslutex<1, zero otherwise

I am trying to plot sequence like:



data:=[seq([n,arrayZ[n]], n=1..3000)]:
t1:=plot(data, style=point, symbol = solidcircle, color= red):

but get incorrect first argument error. How to fix this?

PS. In original sequence instead of null I have constant value, but I don't want it in my plot.

Hi all,

I have been trying to figure out why when I run my 'code' maple keeps building up memory. I am currently writing X number of inequalities and plotting the results. I begin the script with the  'restart' command to clear the memory of any previous runs. But this does nothing to the memory allocated. I check with my 'task manager' window.

I've been scouring the internet for similar issues and basically is this a software problem? how can this be avoided?

'restart' does clear the variables but doesn't seem to make the freed up memory accessible.

Hi everyone!

I'm curious how to obtain in Maple 2015 same result as in Maple 18.

Here is my code:


L0 := ImportMatrix("C:\\Test.txt", source = delimited, delimiter = "\t", datatype = float[8]):

plot(L0[() .. (), 1], L0[() .. (), 2], axes = box, size = [600, 320]);

This is result which I get by Maple 18:

This is result which I get by Maple 2015:


My Test file:Test.txt


     I an trying to plot a function of a single variable, which is an implicit function of another variable, i.e. I want to plot F(x(t)), given that x and t are related through the implicit constraint equation f(x,t) = 0. Is there any plot stuctures in Maple that would easily let me do this? I tried implicit plot but this seems insufficient. 

     As an example, consider plotting F = x + x^2 subject to f = x + sin(x) + ln (t) = 0. I could also write this as  a function subject o a differential constraint, as is f = diff(x(t), t) + 1/t + (diff(x(t), t))*cos(x(t)) = 0 and try to use some sort of implicit DE plotting routine. 

     Any ideas?
