I did not understand fully some of the notation used in 2D when I had the tools->options->Display->Output display->2D. So I thought if I change it to Maple notation. I might see what the symbol actually mean.  But when I did so, the result was even more confusing. Full of typesetting:-mrow commands and hard to read.

Here is the output in 2D

int(1/( (x-a)*(x-b)),x=-infinity..infinity  );

And here is the output when I switched to Maple output:

I was expecting to see "normal" looking Maple commands, which I can understand. Even the Latex is easier to read than the above mumple jumple code:


Does this mean one should forget about using Maple notation for output from now on? Why is it the output so complicated?

#Hello people in Mapleprimes,




#shows f'(x).



#shows just df(t1)/dt1, not f'(t).

#Can't I show f'(t1) not df(t1)/dt1?

#Is this a way peculiar to Maple?

#I hope someone could give me some hints.


#Best wishes.






Please how do I type accents in code edit region of maple 2015.1 (for instance putting "Hat over" on alpha)?

Thank you.

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

Suppose that I have a plot:

plot(sin((1/180)*Pi*x), x = -180 .. 180)

I want to add a degree symbol after the tickmarks on the x-axis.  One approach which seem promising is to add a plot option for the x-axis:

axis[1] = [tickmarks = [90 = typeset("90", degree)]]

where "degree" is replaced by a code for the degree symbol. Maple is helpful here because I can point and click using the Common Symbols palette and insert a degree symbol. However this does not work delivering an error "Error, invalid neutral operator". This error is undocumented. 

I can insert a Pi or an infinity symbol. If I want to I can put a degree sysmbol into ther title, but apparently not on the axes.


I'm trying to insert $(x_0,y_0)$ into a Maple plot (that's how LaTeX would be written). I want to do this with a Maple command rather than creating the plot then hand-tailoring with mouse clicks. This is what I've tried without success:

p1:=plot(sin, -Pi..Pi,-1..1):



For *something* I've tried such as




where try is something like (x[0],y[0]) and [(x[0],y[0])] and similar forms.

No joy! Any help appreciated.


A strange verical line in output of dsolve.Should be a comma in Jacobi SN function and comma's in invert Jacobi SN function.

Can anyone help me confirm this?

Why the interface typesettings option doesn't affect the content of a MathContainer?

I opened a new document. Then I inserted the command interface(typesetting=extended); to improve the visualization of a disequation's solution. It works in the worksheet, but it doesn't work in the content of a MathContainer.

In Maple 2015, on windows 8.1 64-bit the command
series(2*x*(x-y)/y, y = 0, 3);

which is incorrect. The answer is

You can notice the minus sign in front the the -2x is incorrectly typeset, which makes me wonder if it's a bug in the typsetting program and not series itself.

Please fix asap

Sorry for the bad format, maple input is not working.

In particular,from an expression, something like

 Int(x*f(x), x = 0 .. 1)+ Int(x, x = 0 .. 1/3)+3* Int(x*f(x), x = 0 .. 2/3)

I want to extract 


That is all the integrands occuring in the expression. GetIntegrand helps to find the integrand but only for one integral, how do I do it for an expression like above.


I tried to apply following approach

subs(sin(c::anything)=c, sin(x)+f);

and the output was


I was expecting to get only 'x+f' for output.

EDIT 1: 

Thank you so much for your help. You guys answered exactly what I asked for. I needed this to do something different but I should have been more careful. I realized, I could not get that part now. This is what I actually need to do, if

A:=-(5/8)*x*(Int(f(x), x = 0 .. x))+(5/24)*(Int(f(x), x = 1/3 .. x))-(1/4)*x*(Int(x*f(x), x = 1/3 .. x));

then I wish to get a function, g(xi),

g(xi)= -(5/8)x*f(xi) ;   if 0<= xi <= x
                                                  (5/24)*f(xi)-(1/4)*x*xi*f(xi) ; if 1/3<= xi<= x

Notice, all the terms after integral should use variable 'xi' and terms occurring before integral remains as it is.

I would like to implement a rule for typeseting delayDotProduct in latex exports (in which this expressions appears in plain form). It corresponds to dot products of vectors/matrices with the "." operator. I tried to define 

sprintf("{ {%s}{%s} }",cat(`latex/print`(f1)),cat(`latex/print`(f2)))
end proc:

which does not do the job. 


A related question: How can I make


produce x''(t) in latex output?

How is vertical text created in a plot?  It would be similiar to using the labeldirection option set to "vertical", but my text in question will be an annotation within the field of the plot.  A more general question would be how to place rotated text within a plot.    

Using Maple 18.01 on windows 7.

When setting typesetting level to extended, I get this (which is what I want):


But I also wanted to use alias, to make the above show just as \dot(x), i.e. without the (t) as well, since the equations are long, and not having (t) printed next to each letter would make them easier to read. But I found out that if I use an alias as follows


then now the typesetting level extended no longer works:


What do I need to make Maple display  only \dot(x) without the argument (t) everywhere?






I am a student and using Maple to type homework assignments because of the math symbols available.  I was using Maple 17 but upgraded to 18, and its not as easy to use as 17.  For right now I am using it in text mode, because that is what I need.  But I can't figure out an easy way to do subscripts and superscripts in text mode.  Also, the "element symbol," where is it?  I feel like a lot of stuff is missing.  For instance, the arrows, the sideways triangle, lots of symbols I used before the upgrade I cant find.  Can someone help please???

Hello, I am exporting a plot (numerous plots actually) directly to eps files. In my axis labels, I have Greek and non-Greek characters. I am using the following in my plot command:
