I want to use Burr distribution and hence I am creating custom probability distribution. The pdf of Burr is not piecewise. It gives error.

 

burrpdf := alpha*k*((x-gamma)/beta)^(alpha-1)/beta(1+((x-gamma)/beta)^alpha)^(k+1)

burr_distribution := Statistics[Distribution](PDF = (alpha > 0, beta > 0, gamma > 0, k > 0), burrpdf)

 

Error, (in Statistics:-Distribution) invalid input: too many and/or wrong type of arguments passed to NewDistribution;

Say I want to use multiples commands on an expression

simplify(expand(eval(expr,x=y+1)))

 

Now similar I could use

(simplify@expand)(expr)

but how do I do it with sth like eval which needs extra arguments

(simplify@expand@eval(x->y, x=y+1))(f)

??

I'm having sone trouble with my matricies after running restart. When creating the matrice, everything is fine and they are defined as normal. But, if I run restart and try to erdefine them, they are defined as some form of 

The only way I've been able to fix this besides restarting Maple is to either add or remove the colon after the matrix, depending on wether there was one. If ther was, when I remove it the matrix is defined normally and vice versa. I'm relatively new to Maple coming from Matlab and would like to start using it more, but this matrix thing is very frustrating. I've attached a copy of the maple file. Thanks

First definition, everything is normal:

After restart, everything goes bad:
