Hello,

the attached code return error for  this values [0, 0.2, 0.4, 0.6] but work perfectly for this [0.2, 0.4, 0.6, 0.8]. I want it to start from 0 value. How do i correct the error? See the worksheet here com.mw

Thanks.

### My Days as a Robot Whisperer...

August 27 2015

My desk was covered with papers, a glass of water, and a big shipping container. Even though my chair was there, I was sitting on the floor with my laptop, having a bad hair day, and a robot was seated next to me.  This was a typical day at Maplesoft for an engineering co-op student.

For this project, at the request of my manager, I left my duties as Spanish translator and marketing assistant and I started to work with the robot NAO from Aldebaran Robotics. The purpose of this project was to program NAO using Aldebaran’s Choreographe software to make new movements and dances that I would later use to create new MapleSim models for Maplesoft’s Model Gallery. Maplesoft’s marketing team would then use these models in some of their promotional activities.

Given that NAO was going to travel to Taiwan in a short period of time, I wanted to focus on doing one elaborate dance and a couple of simple movements.Thanks to F.U.N. lab from the University of Notre Dame, I was able to focus on the detailed dance because they had an amazing Choreographe database of behaviour/movement code.

I started this project with zero knowledge about Choreographe, but with a good understanding of NAO´s MapleSim model that the Maplesoft engineers had previously created. After a few weeks with NAO and some YouTube tutorials, I discovered that programming NAO was really easy. I would move NAO’s joints to the positions I wanted to, and then I would tap its head to record and save them. I did this for a couple of weeks making sure that the sequence of movements wouldn’t make NAO fall or break a finger. At this point I was already a NAO expert.

After finishing up all the movements and dances it was time to move on to the next phase of the project: obtaining the data for the MapleSim model. The MapleSim model was created using the Denavit-Hartenber (DH) convention; therefore, I needed the values of the degrees of rotation of each joint while the robot performed a dance. These numbers were easily obtained using the “record” button in Choreographe and exporting them into a CSV file. This file was later attached to the MapleSim model, so it could be used in a time look up table. The input of NAO´s joints were then specified by using the values within this table.

I started by recording the simplest movements: NAO blowing kisses and doing the sprinkler. These were the best ones to start working on because in these examples, the robot only needs to move its upper body, meaning that the lower body didn’t need any flexibility. This gave me and Abtin Athari, Application Engineer at Maplesoft, the freedom to simplify the original model by removing unnecessary degrees of freedom on the lower body. Abtin and I also realized that at the beginning of some of the new movements the robot would have too much torque, so we extended some of the recorded position of the rotational joints so the robot could stay in the same position for a longer time. These modifications ensured that the model wouldn´t have any problems during any of the simulations.

To finish the project, I worked with the Marketing team to create some videos where we could display the real robot next to the MapleSim model doing the same movements. The purpose of these videos was to showcase the essence of the high-fidelity models that MapleSim allowed us to create. It was amazing to see how the MapleSim model corresponded so closely to the physical robot.

After three weeks of intense work and meetings, my days as a robot whisperer ended. I learned new things about robots, how to build models with MapleSim, and the processes behind developing videos. It was a project that allowed me to wear both an engineer’s and a marketer’s shoes.  I was able to put into practice my technical knowledge and problem solving skills; and at the same time I was able to enhance my creative and analytical skills by evaluating the quality and impact of my work.

Is there a way to convert this FDTD code into Maple

Hy(1 to M)=0;

Ex(1 to M+1)=0;

For t=1 to T,

Ex(1)=exp(-t);

For k=1 to M,

Hy(k)=Hy(k)-(Ex(k+1)-Ex(k));

end

For k=2 to M,

Ex(k)=Ex(k)-(Hy(k)-Hy(k-1));

end

end

### Positivity of a huge polynomial...

July 24 2015

I need to show that the following expression,
a^3b-a^3c+a^3z+a^3x+a^3y-a^2bx+a^2by+a^2cx-a^2cy-a^2zx+a^2zy-a^2x^2+a^2y^2-abcz-abcx-aczx-acx^2+b^2c^2+2bc^2x+c^2x^2-b^2c-2bcx-cx^2,

is positive

given that:

1. a,b,c,x,y,z are positive real numbers

2. a>b+x

3. c<b+y

I know a priori that the expression is indeed positive, but I do not know how to show it, or how to use Maple to do it?

Specifically, how can I use Maple to **partially factorize** the expression in terms of the expressions a-b-x and c-b-y?

Thanks for any help.

### Have I bought Maple uselessly? ...

July 22 2015

I have purchased Maple 2015 Student Edition a few months ago.  Now, I was about to buy MapleSim Student Edition and I saw that MapleSim include a license of Maple.

If I buy MapleSim and Maple,  I would pay 198$even if I could have bought only MapleSim and still get both products? Can I get MapleSim Student without Maple at a lower price? Maybe the version of Maple included in MapleSim has less features and that's why the cost of MapleSim and Maple are the same? Thanks in advance! I did some search on Google and on this website, but I haven't found anything. ### beginner/beam basic design...

July 14 2015 1 1 Is it possible to have an input box, where the student can give an input (integer) and this is then used in the following questions in an assignment? e.g. in the first question the student is asked to give his student number, in the second question this number is used to create random parameters. ### IVP Dsolve Error... July 11 2015 1 1 Hello, I am a student doing some self study over the summer trying to work through some of the John Taylor computer problems from his classcial mechanics book. Currently I hit a snag that most likely comes from the fact I am not well acquinted with Maple for solving IVP and DE's (we used Matlab in my DE class). I just need to know how I remove the following error: Error, (in dsolve/numeric/SC/IVPsetup) initial conditions must be numeric Here is a copy of my code: R := 5; 5 g := 9.8; 9.8 deq1 := {diff(x(t), [$(t, 2)]) = -g*sin(x(t))/R, x(0) = 20};
/ d / d \ \
{ --- |--- x(t)| = -1.960000000 sin(x(t)), x(0) = 20 }
\ dt \ dt / /
dsol1 := dsolve(deq1, numeric);
Error, (in dsolve/numeric/SC/IVPsetup) initial conditions must be numeric

My hunch is that I need to set x'(0)=0 or something like I do not have enough intial values to solve the problem, but I could be wrong. Anyway anyone who can point out my mistake feel free to do so! Thank you!

### CURVATURE OF GENERALIZED SASAKIAN SPACE FORMS...

July 02 2015
1 1

Given an almost contact metric manifold M(\phi,\xi,\eta, g), we say
that M is a generalized Sasakian-space-form if there exist three functions f1, f2, f3
on M such that the curvature tensor R is given by

R(X,Y)Z=f_1{g(Y,Z)X-g(X,Z)Y}+f_2{g(X,\phiZ)\phiY-g(Y,\phiZ)\phiX+2g(X,\phiY)\phiZ}+f_3{\eta(X)\eta(Z)Y-\eta(Y)\eta(Z)X+gg(X,Z)\eta(Y)\xi-g(Y,Z)\eta(X)\xi}

In (2n+1) dimensional generalized Sasakian space form M2n+1(f_1,f_2,f_3), we have the following relations.

S(X,Y)=(2nf_1+3f_2-f_3)g(X,Y)-(3f_2+(2n-1)f_3)\eta(X)\eta(Y)

S(X,\xi)=2n(f_1-f_3)\eta(X)

C\bar(\xi,X)Y=[f_1-f_3-(r/2n(2n-1))][g(X,Y)\xi-\eta(Y)X]

P(X,Y)Z=R(X,Y)Z-(1/(n-1))[S(Y,Z)X-S(X,Z)Y]

R(X,Y)\xi=(f_1-f_3){\eta(Y)X-\eta(X)Y}

R(\xi,X)Y=(f_1-f_3){g(X,Y)\xi-\eta(Y)X}

for any vector fields X, Y on M, where R, S, C\bar, and r denote the Riemannian curvature tensor, Ricci tensor, concircular curvature tensor and scalar curvature of M2n+1(f1, f2, f3), respectively

Using above equations I have to evaluate P(C\bar(\xi,X)Y,Z)U.

Manually It is tedious job. Can we find the value by maple? Is there any option to solve these type of problems?

If yes, I can solve many more, which helps a lot in my work.. Thanks in advance.
