## How to obtain the Version number of the Physics pa...

On the maple cloud, I see that current version is 38 for Physics

After I installed, I typed

Physics:-Version();

It gives
"......\maple\toolbox\2018\Physics Updates\lib\Physics Updates.maple", 2018, May 8, 17:49 hours

I was expecting to see "38".  Why does Physics:-Version(); does not give the version number as shown on Maple cloud? Using only a date for a version number is not a good idea. There should be a number there. (date can also be included, but a number should be the official version number).

Is there another command to use to obtain Version number "38"?

Does each package shown on cloud support packageName:-Version()? I tried this command on another package I have, but I got an error saying it does not Version()

OrthogonalExpansions:-Version();
Error, Version is not a command in the OrthogonalExpansions package

Yet, on cloud, it says the version number is "1" for the above package. What does the version number shown on the cloud then really mean?

## pdsolve: PDE by series?...

I have PDE i trying to solve the equation using series.

pdsolve(diff(u(x, y), x, x)+diff(u(x, y), y, y) = Pi, series, order = 2);

Give me: "Error, (in DifferentialAlgebra:-RosenfeldGroebner) unexpected occurrence of the non-rational constants {Pi} in the given input" ?

pdsolve(diff(u(x, y), x, x)+diff(u(x, y), y, y) =gamma, series, order = 2);#gamma = 0.5772156649,Gives ERROR ?

If I  change instead of Pi is e or exp(1) works fine.

pdsolve(diff(u(x, y), x, x)+diff(u(x, y), y, y) = exp(1), series, order = 2);#OK.

It's a bug, design or  something else ?

## about maple kernel connection not available...

when I  have transformed symbol expression  from matlab 2017b to  maple 2018 , maple took a mistake that  "maple kernel connection not available", What  is the  reason？Can anyone help me？Thank you！

## Why the difference?...

How to explain the difference in the outputs of

```restart; ans1 := solve(eval({-4*a^2+x^2+y^2 <= 8*y-10*x+4*a-40, -a^2+x^2+y^2 <= 6*x-4*y-13}, a = -9), {x, y});
ns1 := {x = 3-sqrt(-y^2-4*y+77), -11 <= y, y < 13/25},
{-11 < y, x < -5+sqrt(-y^2+8*y+273), y < 13/25, 3-sqrt(-y^2-4*y+77) < x},
{x = -5+sqrt(-y^2+8*y+273), -11 < y, y < 13/25}, {y = 13/25, -141/25 <= x, x <= 291/25},
{x = 3-sqrt(-y^2-4*y+77), y <= 7, 13/25 < y},
{13/25 < y, x < 3+sqrt(-y^2-4*y+77), y < 7, 3-sqrt(-y^2-4*y+77) < x},
{x = 3+sqrt(-y^2-4*y+77), 13/25 < y, y < 7}```

and

```restart; ans2 := solve(eval({-4*a^2+x^2+y^2 <= 8*y-10*x+4*a-40, -a^2+x^2+y^2 <= 6*x-4*y-13}, a = -9), [x, y]);
ans2 := [[x < 3, -6 <= x, y = -2-sqrt(-x^2+6*x+72)],
[x < 3, -6 < x, y < -2+sqrt(-x^2+6*x+72), -2-sqrt(-x^2+6*x+72) < y],
[x < 3, -6 < x, y = -2+sqrt(-x^2+6*x+72)], [x = 3, y <= 7, -11 <= y],
[x <= 291/25, 3 < x, y = 4-sqrt(-x^2-10*x+264)],
[x < 291/25, 3 < x, y < -2+sqrt(-x^2+6*x+72), 4-sqrt(-x^2-10*x+264) < y],
[x < 291/25, 3 < x, y = -2+sqrt(-x^2+6*x+72)]]```

?

In the former x is expressed through y and in the latter y is expressed through x. I find explanation  in neither ?solve nor ?solve,details.

## unable to plot LegendreQ...

I do not know what I am doing wrong. I am trying to plot each of the solutions to an ODE. One of the solutions Maple gives is  LegendreQ((1/2)*sqrt(5)-1/2, x) and the other is LegendreP((1/2)*sqrt(5)-1/2, x)

Maple can plot the  LegendreP, but gives an error plotting LegendreQ((1/2)*sqrt(5)-1/2, x)

```ode:=(1-x^2)*diff(y(x),x\$2)-2*x*diff(y(x),x)+y(x)=0:
sol:=dsolve(ode,y(x));
```

sol := y(x) = _C1*LegendreP((1/2)*sqrt(5)-1/2, x)+_C2*LegendreQ((1/2)*sqrt(5)-1/2, x)

Now when I do

`plot(LegendreQ((1/2)*sqrt(5)-1/2, x),x=-1..1);`

Maple says

Warning, unable to evaluate the function to numeric values in the region; see the plotting command's help page to ensure the calling sequence is correct

Why is that? I tried x=-0.5..1 and x=0.5..1 and keep getting same error message. It works ok for

`plot(LegendreP((1/2)*sqrt(5)-1/2, x),x=-1..1);`

Mathematica can plot both with no problem.

## Calculate integral?...

int(exp(-sec(t))*cos(t)/(-1/4+sin(t)^2), t = 0 .. (1/2)*Pi, CauchyPrincipalValue = true, numeric = true);

Returns unevaluated for me.

```I tried all the methods in HELP documentation and I failed.
Integral is singular at point 1/4.

```

Thank you.

## How to find suitable initial condition...

Hello my friends

I have a problem with initial condition for below system of differential equation

sys := {6*(diff(a(t), t))^2+12*a(t)*(diff(a(t), t\$2))-3*a(t)^2*phi(t)^(-2*c)*sqrt(1-alpha*(diff(phi(t), t))^2), 2*c*a(t)^3*phi(t)^(-2*c-1)*sqrt(1-alpha*(diff(phi(t), t))^2)-3*alpha*a(t)^2*phi(t)^(-2*c)*(diff(a(t), t))*(diff(phi(t), t))/sqrt(1-alpha*(diff(phi(t), t))^2)-alpha*a(t)^3*phi(t)^(-2*c)*(diff(phi(t), t\$2))/sqrt(1-alpha*(diff(phi(t), t))^2)+2*c*alpha*a(t)^3*phi(t)^(-2*c-1)*(diff(phi(t), t))^2/sqrt(1-alpha*(diff(phi(t), t))^2)-alpha^2*a(t)^3*phi(t)^(-2*c)*(diff(phi(t), t))^2*(diff(phi(t), t\$2))/(1-alpha*(diff(phi(t), t))^2)^(3/2), R(t) = 6*((diff(a(t), t))^2/a(t)^2+(diff(a(t), t\$2))/a(t)), W(t) = -phi(t)^(-2*c)*sqrt(1-alpha*(diff(phi(t), t))^2)/(1/a(t)^3+a(t)^3+phi(t)^(-2*c)/sqrt(1-alpha*(diff(phi(t), t))^2))}

I set {c,alpha}={1,1} but initial conditon is problem ... since I got the following message from maple to illustrate diagrams of W(t), a(t) and even phi(t)

Warning, cannot evaluate the solution past the initial point, problem may be complex, initially singular or improperly set up

with the best regard

## Controlling plot range in a parametric 3D plot...

Hi,

I would like to control the extents of my 3D parametric plot. Increasing the grid creates too many gridlines and I just get a black plot  (and I still don't get the extent in the y-coordinate that I want).

Any suggestions how I might be able to get this plot from -360 to 0 and -20 to 60 completely filled in? (see attached workbook).

Any suggestions on how to control the gridlines?

An idea of what I am trying to do...I want to plot argument(z/(1+z)) vs. argument(z)*180/pi vs. 20*log10(abs(z)) with contours of argument(z/(1+z)) and 20*log10(abs(z/(1+z))
This is a 3D plot of the output phase of a Nichol's Chart (with the output contours of the Nichol's chart).

Thanks.

## Plot function as a ratio of two variables ...

I have got the following function:

I would like to plot R as a function of (n1/n2). How can I do this in maple?

## Problems with Export command...

Hello everyone,

I have a project that uses several machines to make a computation. I wrote a package (called here "package") with procedures, "proc".  I wrote several .mpl files structured as:

W:= Read("file1.mpl"):    #I wrote a procedure to read and assign to a variable. This is not the problem.

Export("output.mpl", proc(W));

The situation is as follows: in all but one of my machines, this works fine, and proc(W) is exported correctly. However, in this ugly duckling (which is running the GUI version of Maple18), maple prints as an output, in blue:

Export("output.mpl",...)

and in place of ... it gives the answer expected. But it does not export automatically. I can, of course, manually correct this, but this is not optimal. Moreover, if the output is too big, there will be display issues.

Help? Any light is appreciated, thanks.

Marcelo

PS: I do not expect an answer for the PS; but I also do not know how to make my package "official", in the sense that I always read the .mpl file with all the procedures. Is there a way to call it like the LinearAlgebra and so on and use the package:-proc syntax?
