Maple 17 Questions and Posts

Hi all,





    for j from 2 to K do
        for c to C do


Here an example of integral that Maple 17 cannot calculate (mean of standard Gumbel distribution)

> G:=int(x*exp(-x)*exp(-exp(-x)), x = -infinity .. infinity);

The result is known as the Euler-Mascheroni constant as shown by a numerical computation:

 > evalf(G);


>  identify(%, extension = [gamma]);


> evalf(gamma)


Also, it cannot compute the variance

Good morning everbody,

I am currently trying to get string and numerical datas from a txt.file but I don't get how to do this.
I have done this in matlab but I would like to make it in maple.
I have read other post about the subject and try tried this command:

 fd := fopen(dataFile,READ,TEXT):
    theData:=readdata(fd,string, 3): # 3 columns


but it didn't help me.

Is there any way to detect programmatically that a WARNING has been issued? A method that converts WARNINGs to errors would be acceptable.

Hi all,


Is there any real difference between these two methods of creathing matrices?

How do I check if two matrices are equal?



I'd like to be able to plot a function that not only has a range for the dependent variable(s) but also for any "variable constants" that may be in the expression.

For example, if I wanted to plot the following expression :

                    y = A sin(wx + c)

and also to explore its behaviour over the following ranges for A, w and c :


It seems there's some problems with spaces in the name of equation


As you can see the 'SOLVE' command can't substitute variable 'b' in my example, if 'b' variable wasn't defined BEFORE the equation with spaces in its name....

I am wondering if there is a way to create a pdf from a Maple worksheet that has an animation, or in the case of Maple 17, a video, that allows the viewer of the pdf to play the animation/video.


Hi all,

I am trying to get the following matrix:



How do I get the sum of all elemnets in the 'original' matrix? Bascially, the int00[1,1] term in the toy example.

I just bought Maple 17 and tried to find a couple of Newman-Penrose spin coefficients.  I can do it by hand, but when I try to do the same thing using Maple I am stuck.  Maple lets me define an orthogonal tetrad, then I convert that to a null tetrad.  But how do I then fiind spin coefficients?  I know Maple has an entire list of metrics (385) already loaded, but I need to investigate different Petrov types to develop a metric.  Thanks.

For the last few releases of Maple, we have been adding features to take advantage of multi-core processors.  Most of this work has focused on particular algorithms or on tools that allow users to author their own parallel code.  Although this was very useful for those users who were able to use those tools, many users did not see a performance improvement.  To help all users we need to integrate parallelism into the core algorithms of Maple.  In Maple 17 we have taken the first step towards general parallelism in the core algorithms by implementing a parallel garbage collector.


with x=1/2*arccosh(1/s)-beta*u

is to be calculated to the first order in u.

in fact im only interested in the first order not in the zero order.

so when applying the series I get for the first order


whereas by hand I get:


 I'd really appreciate some idea since...

this function:


shall be calculated @ x=1/2*arccosh(1/s)

when taking the limit maple tells me its 0

whereas when calculating it by hand i get ln(sqrt(1-s^2)/s)

whats the problem?

PS: 0<s<1

Maple 17 adds several new visualizations in Graph Theory as well as updates to inequality plotting and visualizing branch cuts in mathematical expressions.  In preparing the “what’s new” pages for Maple 17, we decided to showcase several of these plots alongside some of our other favourites.

The following file contains code to create most of the “what’s new” plots, as well as some quick tips and techniques for using the ColorTools package to enhance your plots:...

Dear Maple Users

I am mainly in favor of the new rules concerning subscripts. Using Ctrl+-- (double underscore) it is pretty straight forward to get a literal subscript and it displays much better in the palette Variables than was the case i Maple 16. Also the purple coloring of a variable containing a literal subscript makes sense, because it can be distinguished from the usual subscript (now Ctrl+shift+-). Good that you can remove the coloring in the View Menu (Atomic Variables...
