What kind of options do I have regarding printing a document to pdf?

Even though the document I have looks nice on the screen, it doesn't fit to a A4 pdf page.

Are there any scaling options, or fit to page anywhere which I did miss?

Any idea of how to import necessary libraries for use in Maple Player?

How I can show function w, on the 3d surface?

I want to show w (a function that shows mode shape or shows boundary condition) on the surface of the following plot3d?

This function changes the coordinates of some points and creates a different shape. this behavior occurs when geometry experiences some vibrational behavior.



Dear administration, I hope you all are good, why my question have been deleted? Even my important question on legends was deleted.

Two questions posted by AHSAN have just been deleted.
They were somewhat redundant with a previous one, which probably justifies their deletion.
Nevertheless, some had given AHSAN answers or replies: in this case, could the answers not be kept in some place? Perhaps in the question that the "eraser" thought was the original question?

Dear all,

I have 3 ODE's that I solved with the use of a for loop that cycles through different IC's. The purpose of this is so that I can compare the solutions with different IC's. I have three dependent variables (h1(z), h2(z), h3(z)), and one independent variable (z). The loop that I created looks like this:

_Omega_r := 10^(-5);
n := 10;
for i from 0 to n do:
    h10[i] := 1-0.16666667e-1*i;
    h20[i] := 1-(.7*0.16666667e-1)*i;
    h30[i]:= 3-h10[i]-h20[i];
    ans := dsolve([eq2, eq3, eq4, h1(0) = h10[i], h2(0) = h20[i], h3(0) = h30[i]], {h1(z), h2(z), h3(z)}, numeric, output = listprocedure);
    h1_sol[i] := rhs(ans[2]);
    h2_sol[i] := rhs(ans[3]);
    h3_sol[i] := rhs(ans[4]);
end do

Here, h10[i], h20[i] and h30[i] are my initial conditions. I use h1_sol[i], h2_sol[i] and h3_sol[i] to make plots of the solutions:

I make two different types of plots - one type has only the different solutions for h1(z) with all initial conditions:

h1plot := plot([seq(h1_sol[i](z), i = 0 .. 10)], legend = [h1(0) = h10[0], h1(0) = h10[1], h1(0) = h10[2], h1(0) = h10[3], h1(0) = h10[4], h1(0) = h10[5], h1(0) = h10[6], h1(0) = h10[7], h1(0) = h10[8], h1(0) = h10[9], h1(0) = h10[10]], title = "z versus h1(z) for different initial conditions", labels = ["z", "h1(z)"]);

And the other uses one set of initial conditions, but all three h1(z), h2(z), h3(z):

allplot1 := plot([seq(h1_sol[i](z), i = 2), seq(h2_sol[i](z), i = 2), seq(h3_sol[i](z), i = 2)], title = [typeset(h(z), " versus ", z, " (case 2)")], labels = [z, h(z)], legend = [typeset(h[1](z), " with ", h1__0 = h10[2]), typeset(h[2](z), " with ", h2__0 = h20[2]), typeset(h[3](z), " with ", h3__0 = h30[2])]);

Now, all of this works wonderfully. I managed to do everything I wanted. Except that I have been struggling figuring out how to extract the data from the plots into a .dat file into different columns. With the code that I did write, if I use it on the first plot, I end up getting 2 columns, one for z and one for h1(z) (for example), but there should be 11 columns (one for z and 10 for h1(z) with different initial conditions). How would I go about to extract the data of multiple plots into one .dat (or .xls, or .csv or whatever) file? What I did:

write := proc (plotname, filename)
    local fd; fd := fopen(filename, WRITE, TEXT);
    writedata(fd, convert(op([1, 1], plotname), matrix));

write(h1plot, `zvsh1GR.dat`)

Alternatively, if there is a way to use the solution in Maple directly without extracting first (I need to use the solutions for h1(z), h2(z), h3(z) to plot different equations that are dependent on these variables), that would be great. For example, I would like to use these three variables in an equation that uses both the derivatives of all three the variables and the variables themselves as is. For example:

q (z)= (diff(h1(z),z)+diff(h2(z),z)+diff(h3(z),z))/(h1(z)+h2(z)+h3(z))

And then I want to plot q(z) vs z.

I'm sorry if this is a lengthy question (or one with a simple solution) - I am still learning Maple.

My Maple file:

Maple worksheet: Solving_GR_f(R)_ne_2.mw

Is possible to operate Grid Computing Toolbox together with Maple on one local multicore machine?

If yes, what is the proper instalation/configuration procedure on Windows or Linux?


Acer, sometime ago I believe you used a program called DeleteBadCharacters in repairing a Maple file.
Can you tell me how to use that prgram? How do I call the procedure?
I try CeleteBadCharacters(atha.mw), where atha.mw is name of a file, and it doesn't work.
I would appreciate your help.

Thank you!


I want to write two different numbered lists in the same document like:

  1. Item one list one
  2. Item two list one

And the second list:

  1. Item one list two
  2. Item two list two

The problem is that whenever I use the "Set the paragraph to be a numered list item" button, the item becomes a part of the same list as every other list item in the document. How can i separate two lists?

Why 3D .eps figures produced by Maple 2020 are often excessively large?

So, it´s a little heavy to the viewer and to compile to PDF.

  • How could we reduce the size without losing any quality? 

helle to your all


as i can see there are functions to show steps of a calculation

such as ExpandSteps() and ShowSolution()

but would it not be possible to use these or some other function to show steps of the function called isolate()

it should be trivial since most online calculators are able to do this. and so does maple in the back - we just don't see the steps only the result


thanks regards mikkel



I'm having some difficulty solving a set of equations. For example

dn/dt = Const*(phi - n)

ds/dt= Const*(phi-n)

s = d2 phi/dx2 + d2 phi/dy2

How do you solve a system like this? It is 2 equations with 2 unknowns, but it is the s variable that is evolved, i.e. ds/dt, instead of phi.

Anyone know of some code that could do this? (periodic boundary conditions)

Better yet, how do you formulate this as a regular ODE for n and phi?


Dear Users!

Hope everyone fine here. I have following three quires that need to be fix.

1. I want to collocate Vector IntXYZ1 and IntXYZ2 present in file Q1 in such a way that the first M1M2 + 2(M3-1)M2 + 2(M3-1)(M1-2) rows are zero and other rows are collocated at x=(i-1)/(M1-1), y=(j-1)/(M2-1), t=(k-1)/(M3-1) for i = 2,3,…,M1-1, j = 2,3,…,M2-1, k = 2,3,…,M3 as given as XX (of order 27 by 27 with first 25 rows are zero) for M1=M2=M3=3


2. Next, in file Q2 we have a Vector b with some entries which are actually the values of chi[1, 1, 1], chi[1, 1, 2],...,chi[2, 2, 2] in such a following way

(Vector(8, {(1) = chi[1, 1, 1], (2) = chi[1, 1, 2], (3) = chi[1, 2, 1], (4) = chi[1, 2, 2], (5) = chi[2, 1, 1], (6) = chi[2, 1, 2], (7) = chi[2, 2, 1], (8) = chi[2, 2, 2]})) = (Matrix(8, 1, {(1, 1) = 0, (2, 1) = 0, (3, 1) = 0, (4, 1) = 0, (5, 1) = 1.000000000, (6, 1) = 1.000000000, (7, 1) = 1.000000000, (8, 1) = .3678794412}))

Matrix B given in file Q2 have entires which are the linear cobiniation of chi[1, 1, 1], chi[1, 1, 2],...,chi[2, 2, 2]. I want to evaluate matrix B at the values of chi[1, 1, 1], chi[1, 1, 2],...,chi[2, 2, 2] which are obtained in vector b.

3. I want to recall a vector B in file Q3 at highlighted portion and B matrix is present in Q4. Which is the command to recall or export a matrix which contain in some other file like in file Q4.

I shall be very grateful for your support.


 Let d an integer ">=5 " and 
                    "lambda  in ]-(1)/(2),-(1)/(d+1)[. "
> gamma[s+1,d]=((s+1)[d]((d+1)lambda+s))/(2^(d+1)(lambda+s)[d+1]).;
We need to show that
> gamma[s+1,d]>=-(1)/(2^(s+1)),;
> s=1,...,[(d+1)/(2)].;
 a[k] designates the pochhammer symbol.

Thanks a lot 

If you could assist; I am trying to set something like an asymptote or upper limit such that my plot below approaches asymptotically (below y =1 ) from negative infinity:
