Hi there,

I'm new here. My first question:

Is there a way to make Maple output display explicit multiplcations signs in 2D-math?

When you enter 5*2^x Maple will output 5*2^x. Is there a way to make Maple display the multiplications signs in output in stead just implicit multiplication signs (i.e. whitepaces)? (I would settle for Maple display all multiplication signs in output - not just the ones which are made explicit in the input.)

I searched this site. No luck. I looked into "Typesetting Rule Assistant", but I couldn't find a way to alter the output of multiplication sign (*).

Can you guys help me?

Kind Regards,



P.S.: I'm a teacher from Denmark. We use Maple before college/university for a lot of pupils. Some less competent pupils have a tendency to overlook the whitespace.

Respected member!
Please help me to find the solution of attached problem,  I am a new user so please forgive any

when i use the command evalf(Int(f(y),y=-b..b)), i expect that the output of this command to be an integer. but the output is to form of below:

i think that the problem is because of the form of the function f(y) that is the form of below:

f(y) = a*10^354*(b*10^-356*g(sin(y) , cos(y) and exp(y)))

but i dont know how i solve this problem:(

please help me. thank you

Connecting to a linux x2go server with an x2go client (tried Mac and Linux) and try to start maple2016 in a terminal, I get this error:

The same xmaple will start graphically if I connect with a normal remote X connection. However a normal remote X connection is unusable on a slow network connection.



This is simplified from a larger example.  I never saw Maple exit from a numercal calculation.

> 123456789 ^ 987654321:
Execution stopped: Stack limit reached.

Process Maple R2016 exited abnormally with code 158

> kernelopts(maxdigits);

> lprint(123456789. ^ 987654321.);

kernelopts(memusage) shows about 2~3 meg bytes used.

The system has 16G Ram.  16G swap.

Seems like something maple should have caught.

What can i do in this case? I,m traying solve a system of non linear equation like this, i want to know Rs and Rsh:

I have the following fuction in Laplace domain,



Where, s1, s2, s3 are the Laplace variables.

x1:=invlaplace(u, s1, x);

This worked. But the next two doesn't work.

y1:=invlaplace(x1, s2, y);

uu:=invlaplace(y1, s3,t);

Even, I tried to plot the unevaluated invlaplace but no luck.

plot3d(uu,x =1..2, y=1..2);

Am I missing something?


I attempt to understand is it possible whether to calculate the next expression by means of mathematica:


{,}- anti-communicator;


\tau^{0}-unity matrix; \tau^{i} - Pauli matrix;




finally - Levi-Civita symbol; -Hermitian conjugation.


Thank you for your kind replies .

Is there a way to change the numeric formatting of 'Scientific' to use a cdot instead of a cross to represent multiplication?

Hi all,

I am using Maple 2016.

I have defined 5 polynomials: f1, f2, f3, f4 and f5 with 5 unknowns q1,q2 ,q3, q4 and lamda.

After this, I generated the Gröbner basis. But when I try to find the normal set I got an error.

Any help please ?

Thank you.


I was wondering if it is possible to use units in Maple so I can always check if the result I have at the end of calculation is the meter.  For example:


The answer is of course 3.10^8 m^3*kg/s^3

I try to do something with the units but I am unable to crreate something that will simplify the m/s ffactor to 1.

Any idea?

Thank you in advance for your help.


Funny, I can't seem to find a list of all available units in the help file.

Is there not a listed table of units somewhere?

**edit add**  conversion of units I mean.  ie.  meters, miles, gallons, litres, Pa, etc...

I wish to solve for k interms of x, e is a constant in the equation k=x+e*sin(k). Using the solve function, i got 

RootOf(_Z-x-e*sin(_Z)) and using the function allvalues(RootOf(_Z-x-e*sin(_Z))) still gave the same expression in _Z. Please is there a way out because I need the value of  as a substitute to another equation. Any help will be highly appreciated.

I am trying to model a disease. The equation is as follows:

S*X - f(X,S,Sp) = 100

I have data for S, I have data for X and I have data for f(X,S,Sp) however I want to find an equation for f(X,S,Sp) that has the best fit with the data because I need to use it later on in my calculation. If anyone is intrested S is the sensitivity of the blood test, Sp is the specificity of the blood test. This means that X*(1-Sp) is the number of false positives.

I currently dont have access to Maple hence I am doing all my modeling in excel 2016. So I am severly limited because excel is useless at algebra.



why this equation does not any answer?
