I'm looking at Maple as a possible alternative to Mathcad (which I've been using for years, but is now very jaded compared to other options like Maple and Mathematica).  I'm a civil engineer and for what I do, one of the better features of Mathcad is the way it handles units.  For example, if I specify an angle in degrees (say phi=30 degrees) and then ask for sin(phi), I get 0.5.  At face value, I though Maple would do the same kind of thing.  However, this doesn't appear to be the case (see attached worksheet).  The only workaround that I can see is to specify the angle in degrees (but without assigning ) and then multiply the specified value by pi/180 (to convert to radians) before passing it to the sin function.  Which is all a bit messy and not at all an attractive solution.

Am I misunderstanding the way units work in Maple and is there a clean way of specifying angles in degrees (which is what engineers work with) and using these values directy in trig functions?

Thanks in anticipation,


hello, i went solve these equation ,with a & b take any value


thank you

If I were to evaluate a single numerical integral, I can use evalf( Int(,method = _d01amc)).

But when the expression say is created by a built in function, Student[VectorCalculus][Hessian], from a complicated expression involve integrals. The resulting expression does not have the option "method = _d01amc". It then takes a long time to evaluate.

See this "HE" variable for example. HE.txt

value(HE); # takes a long time

evalf(HE); # takes a long time


Is there a way to evaluate "HE", using ",method = _d01amc" wherever necessary?



I want to find the greatest value of this expression 


with x>0, y>0 , z>0,x+y+z=3.

I tried



DirectSearch[GlobalOptima](f(x,y,z), {x>0, y>0 , z>0,x+y+z=3},maximize);

I got the output

[HFloat(infinity), [x = .591166078050740e52, y = .183647204560715e52, z = .786638021216969e52], 1249]



Hello everybody,

I want to find all of roots of the complex variables functions in two ways.

(1) find the value which can make the function equals 0

(2) find the real value and imaginary value which make real part and imaginary part of function equal 0

(I know answers of these two case is not equal completely.)


The function is a non-linear function, including sin, cos and Bessel function, such as:


And, I used Analytic and fsolve to do case (1) and (2), but failure. The follow result is how I tried to find the real value answer:


It seems that both of two commands can only find some of roots. 

How to find all of roots of these cases? The related .mw file is attached.


Thanks a lot.


Is it possible to determine using maple both the exponents x and y, if only the value of n is known in the formula 3^x/2^y=n?

Sorry. I forgot to add that n is more than 1 and less than 2. For example 1.002 090 314 041, 1. 977 205 095 and the like.

Lets take 3^359/2^569 = 1.001 066 461 508 586.  Suppose we do not know the exponents 359 and 569.  Is it possible somehow deduce them from n = 1.001 066 461 508 586?

In the old version of Maple, the accurate value of Sin()and Cos() at some particular points, such as Pi/10, can be returned as below:


But in Maple 18, it just returns the same as the input.

How to make Maple18 return the accurate value as before?

I don't know why it says : Error, (in f) unable to store '[0.]/(0.17571268341557e16+[-0.25659510610770e15])' when datatype=float[8]


Help pleaase!

I have these lines in my code, the function alpha:=(m,n,1)->...... is defined in the last line of the code below, but when I want to calculate alpah(1,1,1), there is no numeric value. Why????  Many thinks


d:=1: N:=2: a:=1: h:=a/N:


Approximate the integral

Compute the coefficients  beta[i]


w := [seq(beta[i,n],i=1..d+1)]:
M,b := GenerateMatrix(sys,w):

M1:=-M: V:=-b:

Vect_beta:=(M1)^(-1).V:# Vect_beta is a vector.

(n, m) -> beta[1]
                                alpaha(1, 1)  ??????????????????? No numeric result


I have a code compute some function : 

         alpha1:(n, m,1) -> (n + 1) (int(K(|m h - y|), y = n h .. (n + 1) h))

              int(K(|m h - y|) y, y = n h .. (n + 1) h)
            - -----------------------------------------
         alpha2:  (n, m,2) -> -n (int(K(|m h - y|), y = n h .. (n + 1) h))

                int(K(|m h - y|) y, y = n h .. (n + 1) h)
              + -----------------------------------------
and  I have a Matrix "MatA" .



My aim, when I give the value of the Kernel K used in alpha1, and alpha2, like K(x,y)=ln|x-y| , I want a numerci Matrix.

How can I do it.

Many thinks.


Hi all

How to read a value from keyboard of PC when executing a maple document and assign it to a variable ?


After simulate the model of MapleSim, I can only know the curve of where I need to know about. I need the specific parameter(each point value), like a piece of sheet. How I can put it of in an Excel of Word?


I have a problem with export value from module.

Could you somene check?,

Thank's in advance.



Dear all


I want to display the value of k   for which the stop test is verified. Thanks for your help. 


for k from 2 by 2 to 50 do
if testerror[k]<=0.0001 then break; end if; end do;
