I want to substitute the solution back into the original equation.  I get caught up in RootOf and have to manually do the substitutions.

F := [x^2+y+z-1, y^2+x+z-1, z^2+x+y-1];

soln1 := solve(F);

for s in soln1 do


end do;

The 4th soln has RootOf.

soln2 := solve(_Z^2 + 2*_Z - 1);

for s in soln2 do


end do;

How do I do this all in one step?

I was starting to set up a curved axisymmetric metric using the Physics package and came across an error message that I could not resolve. I was actually writing the metric in the form given after output line (5) in the code attcahed below. This returned the error message:

Error, (in Physics:-Setup) invalid subscript selector

Then I started fiddling and discovered that somehow braces and order of coefficients are making a difference in the metric. I have written the flat space metric in three different ways after output line (2). The difference is only in the coefficient of the last $d\phi^2$ term. For some reason, $r^2 (sin(\theta))^2$ is shown as $r (sin(\theta))^4$ in output line (3). Removing the brackets around $sin(theta)$ or writing $r^2$ after it is resolving the problem. Is this in someway related to the whole square operation? Can you please help me understand why this is happening?

The original error message I was getting went away after I similarly changed the order of coefficients in the second term of the curved metric to get output (6). Here again, there was a whole square operation!

Thank you!

For some reason machine thinks that I am trying to add a matrix to an equal sign.

Is it italic when copied and pasted?  Is it bold when copied from maple 8?  I just ahve not been able to work it out.

The only way that I can think of doing it is by multiplying by a tetrad.  Even then it does not work well see my worksheet:  The Dirac Equation in Robertson-Walker spacetime.



into your Maple worksheet and copy and paste the Maple output into the answer box below.

I have a recursive function that spits out recursive formulates "evaluated inertly" so bascially it produces a formula simply like a symbolic formula(doesn't reduce the addition of values though).


What I would like is to color code each recursive step


F := proc(n)
    local i,k:
    if n <= 0 then return 1; end if:
    F(n-2) %+ F(n-1):
end proc:



so I would like to cover each part of the recursion differently so it is easier to see, maybe even use the previous colors so one can visualize the nestings of the recursion. (e.g., F(n-2) takes the previous formals color and tweaks it towards the red and and F(n-1) takes the porevious formulas color and tweaks it towards green)
(this would then pass an RGB value that(default, say blue) to the functions above).


Any way to accomplish this?





Enter the value of cos^-1(0.62) to 15 significant figures in the box below.

by cos^-1(0.62) I mean arccos(0.62) or inverse of cos(0.62)


For the following system, the parameters D_1,D_2,D_3,D_4,D_5,D_6,S are all positive, How can I get all the  equilibrium  and their stability.

I want to set up an RSS or IFTTT so that I get a notification on my phone whenever there's something new in the Active Conversations stack. My phone uses Google Android. I'd prefer to not need to rely on email/gmail for the notification; something more endogenous to Android would be preferable. I've never used RSS or IFTTT, so detailed instructions are preferable.

Hello everyone

First day using Maple and I've been given the following task: 

Design a function rangetolist(intrange) which expects an expression intrange of the type .., i.e., of the form m..n as its argument and converts it to the list
[m,m+1,...n] Also test what happens if m is larger than n. Hint: This readily works using seq

I can't quite seem to get it working, online resources haven't been too helpful in resolving the issue unfortunately. 

Here is my attempt 

rangetolist := (x::range) -> seq(i = op(1, x), i .. op(nops(x), x), 1);
which gives me this error:  Error, (in rangetolist) unable to execute seq
Very grateful for any constructive input, thanks :)



Hi , I have a system of equations and initial or boundary conditions. My.question how to solve these equations and their conditions together? And I can’t use dsolve because my result system doesn’t contain any derivative. In addition I couldn’t use fsolve because I don’t know how to collect the system and the conditions to solve together as a one system , and some examples contains equations morethan number of variables.... please can you advice me a solution 


Why won't simplify give the obvious result and Why does testeq give a Fail result in this case?






Hi everyone,

I have 4 expression, each containing several parameters (3, I think).

I need to find the range of the values of the parameters for which one of the expressions is at least as great as any of the other expressions.

So the input of the program/function would be the expression and which one I want to be the (weakly) greatest, and the  output should be something like: [parameter a is a member of the set [0.1,0.5] and parameter b is a member of the set [1.2, 2.4] and parameters c is negative] (meaning if these are true, then the given exoression is the (weakly) greatest of all the given expressions.


Is there a way to do this in Maple?


(For the curious: I have a game-theoretic problem, where the payoff functions include several parameters. I am trying to find the best response functions to find the Nash.equilibria of the game for the different range of parameters)


Thank you in advance,
