Personal Stories

Stories about how you have used Maple, MapleSim and Math in your life or work.

Greetings to all.

I have been using the numtheory package for quite some time now and it has helped me advance on a number of problems. Recently an issue came to my attention that I have known about for a long time but somehow never realized that it can be fixed. This is the fact that the numtheory package does not know about Dirichlet series, finite and infinite. Here are two links:

We’re conducting some market research, and we’re hoping some of you can help.  We’re interested in learning more about why people choose Maple over other systems, in particular Mathematica.  We know why we like Maple, but we’re interested in knowing why you do.

We’d love to hear from anyone who either compared both systems before choosing Maple or who used to be a Mathematica user and has now switched to Maple.  What led you to make your decision?

I made 3 years ago a SOKOBAN game using Maple for my Math/Programming class.

Here is a video of the application:

Have a nice day!

I was born on the fourth day of december in 1982 and in next 19 days i am the member of

mapleprimes for exactly 4 years ...

i read about the history of maple , so i noticed it is as old as me :) lucky fo me !

then i interested to know whether is there any special event in the maple lifesplan on my birth day ?

Greetings to all.

A recent post at math.stackexchange.com asked for good approximations to pi using the nine nonzero digits, the four arithmetic operations and exponentiation. The problem definition definitely suggests a computational solution, which is actually non-trivial because the search space of all legal mathematical expressions over the nine digits and with the aforementioned operations is so huge that it cannot possibly be searched exhaustively.

Hi all,

This is just for fun.

I am originally from Shanghai China and I went abroad to UK in 2006. Maple has always been there for me. Maple was there for my senior year, for my foundation year, for all my undergraduate year, for my master's degree and for my PhD!

Somehow, I lost Maple 10. I will see if I can find it from my backup drive again!

I will post here the output of two commands that has me a bit worried. Of course it is entirely possible that I am overlooking something very simple, which is why I am writing to your site.

On May 17, 2013 I finished a 2,000,000 or more digit computation of the MRB constant, using only around 10GB of RAM. It took 37 days 5 hours 6 minutes 47.1870579 seconds. You can write marvin@marvinrayburns.com for the digits.
The program I used was based on Richard E. Crandall's work:

It’s hard to believe, but Maplesoft as a company has reached the quarter-century mark.  Twenty-five years ago this month, the founders launched this company as a vehicle to market, distribute and support a symbolic computation program they had created called Maple.  They had...

My site of Russian Maple's Center (webmath.exponenta.ru) reached the milestone of 8000000 visits.

Year of foundation - 2000
Now - 8,000 visitors a day.
Since the Maplesoft is not interested in this project, I renamed it.
Current title: Site of Independent Work of students.
I wish you all good luck!

Mechanics of Materials toolbox for Maple: 10 (or bit more :)) free licences for Maple fans.

For students, engineers and simply creative fans of Maple.

If you are concerning mechanics of materials or structural mechanics, please feel free to

send Hardware ID code via e-mail: support@orlovsoft.com after downloading from

and installing MM Toolbox for Maple.

(Maple 32 bit only)

Thanks to Maplesoft for analytic power

Dear friends,

this is to share with you what a joy it was to work with Maple on the problem of enumerating non-isomorphic graphs. This problem goes back to Polya and Harary and it is a beautiful example of Polya counting, while also being of notable simplicity, so that a high school student or an undergraduate can follow it easily.

I have worked on this problem over the years, adapting my solutions in Cocoa and Lisp as I gained insights. My first attempt used...

Dear friends,

every once in a while I come across an integral that Maple does not readily compute and post it here, so that your programmers may perhaps include it in the integration engine.

I am writing today concerning the integral int(x^q/(exp(x)-1), x=0..infinity); for q a real number. Maple can do this integral for rational q but not for irrational ones, e.g. try q=14/10 vs. q=sqrt(2). I hope you can make good use of this hint. The original computation...

Today's SMBC strip by Zach Weinersmith is a silly math joke but it was pretty much begging for implementation.

So, here is a simple brute force Maple program to compute the Fouriest transform of an integer.

fouriest := proc(n::posint, ob::posint:=10)
local b,f,cap,i,rdx,fc;

A set of three taped video interviews with famous physicist and mathematician Cornelius Lanczos (1893-1974) has been made available online by the University of Manchester.
