Hi,

How to insert the notation of a vector, with an arrow? thanks

S5VecteurTextPlot.mw

`evalf(Pi*int(2*299792458^2*662607015*10^(-8)*10^(-34)/((exp(299792458*662607015*10^(-8)*10^(-34)/(1380649*10^(-6)*10^(-23)*lambda*5772.0)) - 1)*lambda^5), lambda = 0 .. infinity));`

returns a complex number for the Solar radiant exitance in watts per square meter with an effective blackbody temperature of "5772.0" kelvins.

Replacing "5772.0" with an exact "5772" gives the correct answer though.  The nominal Solar temperature is defined as exactly 5772 kelvins whereas the physical Solar effective temperature is 5772.0 K (+/-) 0.8 K.

Is there a way to get Maple 2023 to avoid outputting these types of errors when using nonexact quantities?

I tried replacing "5772.0" with "5772.00000000001" and "5771.9999999999" and the error is not duplicated for those kelvin temperatures.

Interestingly, this error does not occur on Maple for Excel, only within the Maple desktop client....

## How to simplify Maple expressions that involve pro...

I'm currently addressing a problem related to modified Bessel functions using an older version of Maple (the specific version escapes my memory). In an attempt to resolve issues, I've experimented with the trial version of Maple 2023, but I've encountered an unusual phenomenon. Expressions that were previously simplifiable in Maple now resist simplification. The specific expression provided below, which should equate to 1, fails to be recognized as such by Maple. This poses a concern as it could lead to overly complex expressions in subsequent steps, considering this expression is only an intermediate stage. Is there a recommended approach to overcome this challenge?

## How to efficiently implement the addition of a mon...

Hello

I could not come up with a better title, so I apologize for that.  Let me explain what I am trying to implement using an example.

Consider the following list of monomials (a 3D model,  4 monomials altogether):

`model := [x^2*y*alpha[1, 11], x*z^2*alpha[2, 15], y^2*z*alpha[3, 17] + y*z*alpha[3, 8]]`

The idea is to generate the set of all models by adding a non-repetitive monomial from the following list to model.

`[alpha[i, 0], alpha[i, 1]*x, alpha[i, 2]*y, alpha[i, 3]*z, alpha[i, 4]*x^2, alpha[i, 5]*y*x, alpha[i, 6]*z*x, alpha[i, 7]*y^2, alpha[i, 8]*z*y, alpha[i, 9]*z^2, alpha[i, 10]*x^3, alpha[i, 11]*y*x^2, alpha[i, 12]*z*x^2, alpha[i, 13]*y^2*x, alpha[i, 14]*z*y*x, alpha[i, 15]*z^2*x, alpha[i, 16]*y^3, alpha[i, 17]*z*y^2, alpha[i, 18]*z^2*y, alpha[i, 19]*z^3]`

where i indicates the coordinate where the monomial will be included.  Example: if alpha[i, 2]*y is to be added to the second coordinate of model it goes as alpha[2,2]*y. Note that alpha[i, 15]*z^2*x cannot be added to coordinate 2 since it is already there.

The result will be a list of 56 models with 5 monomials.

How can I do that efficiently?

Many thanks

Ed.

PS. I have implemented something similar to the problem above, but I have used too many 'for' loops.

## how to convert RootOf to a proper radical form...

I have a result:

u1 = RootOf(4*_Z^2 + (4*RootOf(60*_Z^3 - 60*_Z^2 + 15*_Z - 1) - 4)*_Z + 4*RootOf(60*_Z^3 - 60*_Z^2 + 15*_Z - 1)^2 - 4*RootOf(60*_Z^3 - 60*_Z^2 + 15*_Z - 1) + 1)

but it reported error Error, (in sprintf) too many levels of recursion

how can I convert it to this form?

Thanks!!

There appears to be a bug with Maple 2023.2 which will remove units from physical constants.

```AddConstant(Solar_equatorial_radius, symbol = r[e,Sol], value = 696342., uncertainty = 65., units = km) :

AddConstant(Solar_flattening, symbol = f[Sol], value = 0.000009) :

```

In the example here, "GetUnit(Constant(r[p,Sol]))" will return "1" and "GetUnit(Constant(x[Sol]))" will return "m".

The only workaround is to not save dimensionless quantities as physical constants or otherwise at least some constants derived from a dimensionless constant will also be dimensionless.

## Numerical bug in Maple 2023 when increasing Digits...

Hello! We are using Maple to evaluate numerically expressions with very high precision and we are finding very strange results. After some playing with simple models we have come to conclusion that there might be a bug in Maple 2023. Here is a clean example of what we are experiencing. Plotting the function x*exp(-x) in [0,20]. Clearly the function cannot be negative in that interval! However, if Digits is set to 40 the results may be whatever. Any ideas? Thank you very much.

## Remove unit symbol?...

Is there a way to remove a unit symbol?  "AddUnit" allows to add additional symbols or change the default symbol, but I don't see any way to remove symbols?

A good example is for the hectare.  Maple 2023 uses "a" as the default symbol for the are, except that the unit symbol "a" does not allow using SI prefixes because the peta- unit prefix then conflicts with the pascal ("Pa").  I can use "AddUnit" to change the default symbol for the are from "a" to "are" but I still cannot enable SI prefixes unless the symbol "a" is removed from the symbol set.  This way hectares ("hare") and petares ("Pare") can be used.

I don't see a way to nondestructively/temporarily delete units either ("RemoveUnit").  Deleting the unit "are" and then recreating it as a new unit with the symbol "are" would solve the same problem.

I just saw that there already exists a separate "hectare" unit with the symbol "ha" which presumably also needs to be removed in order to enable SI prefixes for "are".  This is just one example but a general way to remove units and/or unit symbols should be very helpful.

## Import MPL from URL?...

Is there a way to import an MPL file from a URL?

`Import("https://www.nicolesharp.net/testbox/test.mpl");`

Using the "Import" command on Maple 2023.2 appears to only import the MPL as plaintext and doesn't recognize any of the Maple instructions from the MPL file.

Using the "Get" command with the URL package doesn't do anything useful either.

`with(URL) : Get("https://www.nicolesharp.net/testbox/test.mpl");`

Any one knows if this is a new bug in int()? It happens only when kernelopts('assertlevel'=2): is on.

Using Maple 2023.2.1 on windows 10.

edit: Found another integral. #3 below. The difference now is that this third integral is solved completely when removing Physics update/lib from libname. While the first two are not solved. But all three now do not give exception with the updated libname. New attachment is below.

ps. just in case I also just send bug report to Maplesoft.

## Where is the Maple equivalent to MatLab's `allpath...

`GraphTheory:-IsReachable` can be used to "determine if there is a path between two vertices", and `GraphTheory:-ShortestPath` can be used to "find a path between two vertices with minimum distance", but which command can be used to "enumerate all (simple) paths from one node to another" like MatLab's `allpaths` in Maple?

For instance, I would like to enumerate (not simply count) at most 3483192 paths with total weights at least 45 in the graph constructed from  that begin at node 30 and end at node 29
There exists a practically ready-made procedure  (where only a limited subset of its local variable  is needed) in a previous question. Nevertheless, after waiting for a quarter of an hour, the evaluation still did not terminate and I had to abort it manually. Meanwhile, MatLab completed the same computation within one minutes:

So, how to list those 1008252 paths (without knowing the actual total number beforehand) faster in Maple?

Note. MatLab also has a built-in function `allcycles`, whose efficient Maple equivalent has been proposed in How to obtain all cycles in a graph from its cycle basis - MaplePrimes, yet I cannot find an analogue to MatLab's `allpaths`

## Detect if a input is changed WITHOUT re-evaluating...

For instance, here is a worksheet where I have replaced  with  in advance:

=  =

 > 1 + 1;
 (1)
 > 1 + 1;
 (2)

But without re-evaluations, how do I know the second input and the fourth input have been stealthily substituted?

In a Mma notebook, this can be displayed by shadowing the input label:

But in order to detect changes, which method should be used in Maple?
(Note that I do not mean that no changes are allowed. So I don't think setting the “editable” property is a workaround.)

## Specify the width of `lprint`'s output?...

`lprint` is officially interpreted as “linear printing of expressions”, but in the most recent release, its output looks just like "left printing" (under the default zoom 100%),

while in some legacy version, `lprint` printed expressions not only on the left but also on the right.

How to render `lprint` print its arguments not only on the left half?
Although I believe that similar questions must have been asked before, I cannot find such a question.

Code:

```lprint(_bigPi):
showstat(ellipsoid)
```

## Error, (in simplify/RootOf) too many levels of rec...

I've reported this to Maplesoft 6 months ago.

I was wondering if someone with beta version of 2024 could check if these are fixed? (if one is allowed to do so). As these errors keep breaking my program. (not possible to trap).
