MaplePrimes Questions

Hi, I hope this question is allowed

I wish to become well learned in maple but I find all the time, when I come across a new problem, the maple help function only takes me so far. In this community are some really helpful and bright characters which I would like to match in knowledge.

Is it possible to 'know it all' in the maple universe, or are there certain areas you're well versed in over others? 

what are some of the ways you have learned to use maple effectively?


kind regards, Ben

In using maple 17, for a for loop, the alias command is valid outside the for loop, but entering the for loop, maple verifies that alias is not recognized.The code is as follows:
for k from 1 to 4 do
for i from 1 to 4 do
end do;
The output is as follows: thequestionofalias
[a[1] = a[1] + 1]
[a[1] = a[1] + 1, a[2] = a[2] + 2]
[a[1] = a[1] + 1, a[2] = a[2] + 2, a[3] = a[3] + 3]
[a[1] = a[1] + 1, a[2] = a[2] + 2, a[3] = a[3] + 3, a[4] = a[4] + 4]
Why is it outside the loop? A [1] ... A [4] has the variable x, but either a [ I ] or a [1] has no variable X.Send the question to the Forum and see which expert can answer it. See how you can make the alias command work inside a for loop! I'd appreciate it if you could answer that!

Is there a way to use the Button Component to stop a maple computation? I have two long functions running on nodes via grid in my app and I want to have them stopped via special button, is it possible to do in maple?

Hi everyone,

In some step of my code, I need to solve the following equation: M = Id, where, M is a square matrix of dimension n and each element of this matrix M is an expression with parameters. Id, is the identity matrix.

Could you please tell me how to solve such a matrix equation M = Id, whatever n ?

Example: i would like to solve M=Id, where M is given by:
M:=Matrix(3, 3, [[-1/3*a + b + c - 2*d, -1/4*a + 2/3*c, 1/15*a - 1/4*c + 2/3*d], [e + a - 2*c, 2/3*a, -1/4*a + 2/3*c], [f - 2*a, 0, 2/3*a]]);

Thanks in advance,
Best regards

Hi community, How to separate the positive root from an expression..

Using maple, approximate integral of 2/(x^2-4) from 0 to .30 by using

(a) the Trapezoidal rule: n=1, h=(b-a)/n, inegral of f(x) from a to b=(h/2)(f(x0)+f(x1))

(b) Simpson’s rule:

(c) the Midpoint rule: 


I try to build a point, but a problem assigning the f function blocks me

Ideas? Thanks

Please help in finding roots of an equation and how can we verify the obtained roots?

As you can see in the code, I am trying to print the solution of the ODE using the Homotopy perturbation method for N = 10 ( f[0] till f[10]), but Maple is only printing f[0],f[1], and the rest of the terms are not printed out, what could cause this issue to take place?

N := 10:
  F(Y) :=  add(p^i*f[i](Y), i = 0..N);
  HPMEq := (1 - p)*diff(F(Y), Y $ 4) + p*(diff(F(Y), Y $ 4) + R*(diff(F(Y), Y $ 3)*F(Y)- diff(F(Y), Y $ 2)*diff(F(Y), Y $ 1))-G*diff(F(Y), Y $ 2));
  for i from 0 to N do
      sol:= [ sol[],
              ( [ eval
                  ( coeff(HPMEq, p, i) = 0,
                  f[i](0) = -a,
                  f[i](1) = -b,
                  D(f[i])(0) = B * D(D(f[i]))(0),
                  D(f[i])(1) = -B * D(D(f[i]))(1)
end do:

Please kindly try to run this code in your Maple version and tell me if all terms are printed.

 Could you please help me to resolve my problem?

Let us consider A=[a,-b,c, d, -a,b, -d]. Is there any command or function to remove negative element from A? For this example I want to obtain [a,b,c,d]. It is worth noting that not different "a" belong in the output list or "-a".

Thank you in advance.


Dear all

I would like to obtain an equivalent to this integral when n goes to infinity 

int( ((1-t^2)^n, t=0..1)

Many thanks

Let's consider nonlinear partial differential equations as follows:

It can be reduced into the nonlinear ordinary differential equation

by using the transformation as follows:

How to write a code for transforming the PDE to ODE by Maple?

For example; let's consider the following PDE

by using the transformation above we get the following ODE. 


tr1:={x=mu*t + xi,u(x,t)=U(xi) };
PDE := diff(u(x,t),t) +p*u(x,t)*diff(u(x,t),x) +q* diff(u(x,t),x$3)=0;


How I can obtain system (21) in the following pdf file?
In the first step several changes of variables are done to obtain the system (20),
then changes the variables again repeated in the neighborhood (w1 *, w2 *) to gain Eq 21.
I have 3 questuin:
1-The change of variables performed in the neighborhood (w1 *, w2 *)
for system (20) or for system (7) ???
2-What does it mean in the neighborhood (w1 *, w2 *)?
3- How did obtaun Eq (21)?

Could you please help me at the solution of my problem?

Let us consider the following list:

A := [x[1, 1]*(a*x[1, 1] + E[1, 1]) + x[2, 1]*(a*x[1, 2] + E[1, 2]) + x[3, 1]*(a*x[1, 3] + E[1, 3]), x[1, 2]*(a*x[1, 1] + E[1, 1]) + x[2, 2]*(a*x[1, 2] + E[1, 2]) + x[3, 2]*(a*x[1, 3] + E[1, 3]), x[1, 3]*(a*x[1, 1] + E[1, 1]) + x[2, 3]*(a*x[1, 2] + E[1, 2]) + x[3, 3]*(a*x[1, 3] + E[1, 3]), x[1, 1]*(a*x[2, 1] + E[2, 1]) + x[2, 1]*(a*x[2, 2] + E[2, 2]) + x[3, 1]*(a*x[2, 3] + E[2, 3]), x[1, 2]*(a*x[2, 1] + E[2, 1]) + x[2, 2]*(a*x[2, 2] + E[2, 2]) + x[3, 2]*(a*x[2, 3] + E[2, 3]), x[1, 3]*(a*x[2, 1] + E[2, 1]) + x[2, 3]*(a*x[2, 2] + E[2, 2]) + x[3, 3]*(a*x[2, 3] + E[2, 3]), x[1, 1]*(a*x[3, 1] + E[3, 1]) + x[2, 1]*(a*x[3, 2] + E[3, 2]) + x[3, 1]*(a*x[3, 3] + E[3, 3]), x[1, 2]*(a*x[3, 1] + E[3, 1]) + x[2, 2]*(a*x[3, 2] + E[3, 2]) + x[3, 2]*(a*x[3, 3] + E[3, 3]), x[1, 3]*(a*x[3, 1] + E[3, 1]) + x[2, 3]*(a*x[3, 2] + E[3, 2]) + x[3, 3]*(a*x[3, 3] + E[3, 3])]

I want to subs E[k,k]=1 when there is "a*x[k,k]+E[k,k]" as a part of polynomial in the above list.

Thank you so much in advance
