I encounter the same error for upgrading the physics package

which was never solved for Maple 2020 !

See the screenshot.

This is again a problem of permission.


Hi I have experienced another Maple 2021 error with those of my students who Maple 2021 Mac edition. 

Lets say their have saved a .mw on their main drive and tries to open the file from inside Maple. Maple gives an error like "file cannot be opened - please try to another". This also happens when trying to open the file from outside Maple. 

This never happens on the Windows version. So any idea what could be causing this ?

I have the following expression.

Ps = (x - 600)(15000 + 400*(y - 4000)/2000 + 15000*0.40*(850 - x)/100) - y

Maple will evaluate this to:

Ps = (x - 600)(15000 + 400*(y - 4000)/2000 + 15000*0.40*(850 - x)/100) - y


Plotting these two in 2D on Desmos to demonstrate:

These two are not the same expression. Is Maple broken or am I doing something wrong?


I solve numerically an ODE system which depends on 25 parameters.
I want to know the maximum value of the time at which a specific event is triggered, when these parameters vary (independently the one of the other) within a 25 dimensional hyperbox.

To solve this maximization problem, which I assume is local1, I would like to use NLPSolve

The attached zip (I use Mac OSX) contains:

  • a file that gives a full description of the problem (the original ".pages" file and its export as pdf),
  • an m file wich contains the solution procedure plus a few other variables needed to solve the problem,
  • the mw file which contains:
    • the reading of the m file,
    • the procedure (OBJ) which returns the trigerring time,
    • many attemps to find its maximum value using NLPSolve.

None of my attempts at using NLPSolve gave me the expected answer

Could you help me to fix this?

Thanks in advance

1: Initializing a local method (see the explanation file) with different points gave me different optimizers but all of them led to rather close values of the objective function. Thus the problem is either global instead of local, or convergence might not be achieved for all the initialization points (but keep in mind that I'm not interested in the location of the minimizer(s) but in the maximum value of if the time when the event is triggered).

When I was drawing a plane graph, I found that the labels  of vertices were not displayed  and some edges even overlap when drawing because they were too close due to embedding.

DrawPlanar(g,stylesheet=[vertexborder=false,vertexpadding=5,edgecolor = maroon,vertexcolor=gray,edgethickness=3])

So I thought that  option  Interactive  can adjust the position manually, but  at the same time I found that the style of  edges, such as the color and thickness, etc., is lost.  How to handle it? Is this a bug?

DrawPlanar(g,stylesheet=[vertexborder=false,vertexpadding=5,edgecolor = maroon,vertexcolor=gray,edgethickness=3],layout=interactive)



Maple 2021.1 screen shot: property box too small to select properties

how it should look like

How do I get it back to normal?

Thank you

I'm getting a strange error today when trying to save a file on the network. Rebootet machine, no change.

Any hints?


I am trying to integrate this function numerically from x=0... 1, by using int and evalf(Int) but maple cannot handle it. Is there another kind of numerical integration?


Are there another kind of procedures to do numerical integration?




I have created a procedure for the so-called "Chaos Game" for the generation of Fractals. The file is the following:

On the other hand, for a given day set D:={(x0,y0,(x1,y1),...., (xN,yN)}, for simplicity we assume D is contained in [0,1]x[0,1], one can to construct an "Iterated Functions System" such that its attractor set contains the set D. A detailed exposition of this topic can be found in the famous Barnsley's book "Fractals Everywhere". Also, in the following paper (sections 2.5 and 4-A):

I have tried to implement in Maple 17 a procedure to create such Iterated Function System:

But, I feel that there is something wrong...After plot (with the Chaos Game procedure) a lot of points of the Iterated Functions System (i.e., an approximation of its attractor set), I have a "set of points", instead of a figure similar to a curve (which I feel that must be the correct).

Please, Somebody can have a look to the attached files?

Many thanks in advance for your comments.

On virtually any webpage is a mixture of images and text. I can go to the page, select all contents, copy the contents into an Excel spreadsheet, save the spreadsheet file and then use the ExcelTools:-Import function to read the file into a DataFrame. At that point, I can work with the data.   All the text on the webpage, even if it is embedded in some HTML command, is copied as text into the spreadsheet which eventually can be read as text by Maple.

My quesiton is, what is the method for me to bypass Excel and import the webpage directly into Maple, striped of the HTML code? Can someone point me to an example? (The only examples I have seen use the Sockets package, but I thought this mode has been superceded with Import.)

Can you use the Dirac function in different coordinate systems?

Dear all

I have a second order PDE, i used pdesolve but no solution obtained, why?




Bellissima used kripky modules to find the labels for one and two generators. the number of these labels increses to a very large number as we add another level. Can maple help count these lables? and how?


I have had trouble with a  .mw worksheet..which I will attach.(I am using Maple 2021)..This is second time it got corrupted..I used the

"CompleteMiniCourseComputerAlgebraPhysics" and copy parts to worksheets so I can work the problems and I do 

Alot of markups and highlighting as well as add coments a copy as Text from help on certain commands..

I read some other posts that discuss corrupt file thats use XML I think in the worksheet....I checked this in the area I was working and did not find anything (I completed about half of the course saving as I went and had no problems) any guidance would be appreciated..

How I have used maple 2018, 2019 and 2020. I am now trying to switch to 2021, however the resolution is irritating. The resoluion in the palettes tab is bad and is especially bad for the "popup suggestion window" when you press escape on like "sum" or "e". I have tried searching on google to fix it but have not been able to find any help. Using windows 10

The pictures attached shows the resolution problem.

I know it is a small issue, but it annoys me a lot. So any suggestions to what I could do?
