MaplePrimes Questions


Assume a periodic signal that is the sum of four sinusoidal signals, all with different frequency and phase. The fundamental frequency has phase=0, so at t=0 its value is 0 (a zero crossing point). I need to find the influence of the other frequency components on the zero crossing point in [seconds] as an analytical expression. I made the Maple script below to find out, but get a RootOf result. How can I solve this?

Thanks for your help!


p := a*sin(omega[P]*t):

q := b*sin(t*omega[Q]+phi[Q]):

r := c*sin(t*omega[R]+phi[R]):

s := d*sin(t*omega[S]+phi[S]):

z := p+q+r+s



solve(z, t)





I am using maple (version 12) for the first time.  I want equations of x and y ( in terms of a) from these two given equations. The equations I got are very complex, how to simplify these equations?


Equation#1 is:

Equation#2 is:

From Equation#1, i find "y"


Now i put y in Equation#2

and from that euation, i can get x

but these equations are very complex..

I simply want to find the equations of x and y..
How to simplify it?




I define a func

f(x,y):=piecewise(x=0 and y=0,139 ,x=1 and y=0,144,x=2 and y=0,149,x=3 and y=0,155,x=4 and y=0,155,x=5 and y=0,155,x=6 and y=0,155,x=7 and y=0,155,x=0 and y=1,144,x=1 and y=1,151,x=2 and y=1,153,x=3 and y=1,156,x=4 and y=1,159,x=5 and y=1,159,x=6 and y=1,159,x=7 and y=1,159,x=0 and y=2,150,x=1 and y=2,155,x=2 and y=2,160,x=3 and y=2,163,x=4 and y=2,158,x=5 and y=2,156,x=6 and y=2,156,x=7 and y=2,156,x=0 and y=3,159,x=1 and y=3,161,x=2 and y=3,162,x=3 and y=3,160,x=4 and y=3,160,x=5 and y=3,159,x=6 and y=3,159,x=7 and y=3,159,x=0 and y=4,159,x=1 and y=4,160,x=2 and y=4,161,x=3 and y=4,162,x=4 and y=4,162,x=5 and y=4,155,x=6 and y=4,155,x=7 and y=4,155,x=0 and y=5,161,x=1 and y=5,161,x=2 and y=5,161,x=3 and y=5,161,x=4 and y=5,160,x=5 and y=5,157,x=6 and y=5,157,x=7 and y=5,157,x=0 and y=6,162,x=1 and y=6,162,x=2 and y=6,161,x=3 and y=6,163,x=4 and y=6,162,x=5 and y=6,157,x=6 and y=6,157,x=7 and y=6,157,x=0 and y=7,162,x=1 and y=7,162,x=2 and y=7,161,x=3 and y=7,161,x=4 and y=7,163,x=5 and y=7,158,x=6 and y=7,158,x=7 and y=7,158)

It is really a chore . By the way , is there more concise way to definition of the same effet as this ? 

then I type:

sum(f(0, y), y = 0 .. 7) 

Maple just respond me a 0 

why ?

How can I expand the mutivariate taylor series of the functions below about the point (x,y)

f(h*a[2]+x, h*a[2]*k[1]+y);


f(h*a[3]+x, y+h(a[3]-b[32])*k[1]+h*b[32]*k[2]);

Hello, everyone. I'm sorry for bed view. Can i solve the system of equations in maple which above this text. I had inputted the system in Maple, but there is mistake:

What program (Maple,Matlab,mathcad...) can solve, if Maple can't.


Hello everyone

Here is my problem: I have a procedure depending on a variable and a parameter, let's say F(x,a). I have another procedure that gives me a specific value for x depending on the parameter a, let's say X1(a). I would like to make a list of values of F(X1(a),a) for different values of a. So the list would go F(X1(a1),a1), F(X1(a2),a2), and so on. Here is what I tried



but it doesn't work.

Another thing I tried was


Also doesn't work. Not with evalhf either. I can do it for specific values of xlist by choosing xlist[i] inside F, but that's it. If I leave i unspecified it can't do it.


Thanks for the help



Dear All,


I would like to perform a numerical integration of the following. Please let me know the method.


The integration consits of one variable essentially. Since the symbolic integration is not possibl and hence I have to do it numerically.

Appreciate you reply. Thanks


Here is the question:Prior to this question I was given f(z)=z^2+1, N(z)=(z^2-1)/(2z), T(z)=z-I/z+I such that T(N^k (z))=(T(z))^2^k. And L is a set of number on the real axis. Now the question is that given we have two regions of the complext plane as follow:

R+ = {z : Nk{z) -> i as k -> ∞}; R- = {z : Nk(z) -> -i as k -> ∞}.

Draw a diagram to illustrate these regions, the line L and the roots i and -i. We call R+ the basin of attractionfor the root +i, and similarly R-is the basin of attraction for the root -i.

 Show that if z is on the set L (the common boundary of the two regions R+ and R_, then Nk(z) stays on L for all values of k. (This is easy once you identify what L is.) So in this case iteration does not produce a root at all.

So basically my problem is that the fact I'm not very familar with the commands to draw such diagram, and I don't know much about Newton's method to compute complex roots. It would be appreciated if anyone can help me how to get start with the question. Thanks.


I have a diff equation in cartesian coordinates I need to transform to a certain cylindrical system. The de looks like this:

I define my new system with addcoords like this:

addcoords('AccCylinder',[r,theta,y],[r*cos(theta),y,r*sin(theta)]); # Note: y is the longitudinal axis here!

and also do

VectorCalculus:-AddCoordinates('AccCylinder'[r,theta,y],[r*cos(theta),y,r*sin(theta)],overwrite) assuming r >= 0;

and note that I had to overwrite as my system was already known, so maybe addcoords is reduncant(?)

I then do the transformation ("(7)" is the label of my above de):


and get

This may be correct, but it has the expressions in the differentials, which diff does not know how to handle. I need to convert things like diff(xpr,r*cos(theta)) = diff(xpr,x)*diff(x,r) where x would be r*cos(theta). I can do this "by hand", but that seems overly tedious and error-prone. Somehow I'd expect the coordinate transforms to be able to do this but I can't figure out how.

Any idea?


Mac Dude,

Given the following system of first order ODE,

dx/dt=0.2x(1-0.5 x)-(1.5 xy)/(1+0.116 x),

dy/dt=(1.3 xy)/(1+0.1x)-0.8y.


Draw a DEplot (for t from 0 to 50) and indicate the particular

trajectory with the initial conditions x(0)=1,y(0)=2. If I

switched to forward Euler method,what would the DE plot look

like then? Is it possible to make the plot made by the

forward Euler method look close to the one which used the

default method?

Hello !

I installed Maple 14 on my windows8 computer (with compatibility windows7). My program worked the 2 first times, and suddently it bugged on the third, though I changed NOTHING.

It puts me an "Error: recursive assignment". The concerned line is: 

if a < 2 then broSet := broSet union {[param[1, j], param[2, i]]} fi:

There should be no problem.

Does anyone have any idea ?




i have problems with surfdata command. I want to see beautifull surface, but see only few black lines.

and i dont know why, because i do all like in example.


Thank you vwry much for answers)

Hi everybody,

When doing calculations, I often run in the following problem.  I have the final solution wich I simplify symbolically so many terms are cancelling.  But I get this:


While I would like to regroup all the terms into the square root.  But look, even in this forum, Maple get sqrt(2) automatically out of the square root.


I know that it is the simple form.  But in some instances, I need the square root to stay together so I can show a property.  But is there a way to be able, sometimes, to tell Maple to leave all the terms under the square root?

Thank you in advance for your help.

when a user liked a particular photo for the first launch of a mobile app, and the time different where by the event started and stoped was k seconds which is at constant (does not change). At this constant thus triggered the like application operation or function that was connected to the application server. Then later the user unlike the photo and the same event and operation was carried out at of (k + 2) seconds. The time variation that was carried out during the sequential or running loop event carried out by 2 seconds.

check if this derived equation is correct first f(Xn) = en(Xn + Xn+ 1) . if its correct do the second question.

what is the rate at which the operation will be finish given an equation f(Xn) = en(Xn + Xn+ 1) 


I have a simple Maple application with two TextArea components (TextArea0 and TextArea1) inside.

The start up code is following:

Actions := module()
export DoNothing;
    DoNothing := proc()
    end proc;
end module; #Actions

the action when cotents change for both TextArea components is

use Actions in
end use;

The problem:
When I change the focus from one TextArea component to another and press Restart maple server then an error appears:

Error in Component TextArea1 with caption "TextArea": `Actions` is not a module or member.
Haw can it be fixed? Thank you.
