The attached worksheet performs two functions:

(1) It lets me print 4 × 6 Index Cards for the short entries in each table.

(2) It allows for easy storage and retrieval of syntax (code).

The worksheet has many tables, each separated by a Page Break.


(a) Is there a way to sort all the different tables so they will be arranged in alphebetical order?

(b) When I select one table to print and open the Print Dialog, the "Selection" option is grayed out. (see graphic below).  (1) Is there a way to enable the selection option?  (2) Is there a way to determine what page I am on so I can use the "Pages from...to" option?  If I need to number the pages, will the page numbers reset to parallel a new alphabetic sort order.

Many thanks in advance.  See WC29_4_BY_6_NOTE_CARDS_UNSORTED.mw attached. And see image of Print Dialog below.


I need help me, i need find maximum value,this form is false LL := proc (x, y) option inline; abs(wr(x, y)-w3(x, y)) end proc; CodeTools:-Usage(evalhf(maximize(LL(DD*i, DD*j), i = 0 .. N, j = 0 .. N))); Error, (in CodeTools:-Usage) cannot handle unevaluated name `i` in evalhf


How can i solve this integro-PDE(partial diffrential equation)??


eq := (1+6*(l/h)^2/(1+nu))*(diff(u(xi, tau), xi, xi, xi, xi)+int(-B*lambda*exp(-lambda(tau-s))*(diff(u(xi, s), xi, xi, xi, xi)), s = 0 .. tau))+diff(u(xi, tau), tau, tau) = alpha*(int((diff(u(xi, tau), xi))^2, xi = 0 .. 1)+int(-B*lambda*exp(-lambda(tau-s))*(int((diff(u(xi, tau), xi))^2, xi = 0 .. 1)), s = 0 .. tau))*(diff(u(xi, tau), xi, xi))+V^2*(sum(j*u(xi, tau)^(j-1), j = 1 .. 8))


The program below is a high school problem, related to the area a horse can graze, given it is tethered to a rectangular barn.  The level of difficulty is related to the length of rope.  

   I wanted to display some graphics of the field, barn and tethered horse - this latter being the most difficult.  I experimented with a .png picture of a plain silouhette of a horse, imported this into Photoshop, then saved it as a .pdf file, importing this into Maple,  I managed to import this into the worksheet, but I wanted a scaled down version of the horse in the program plots[display] section.  I was unsuccessful in this.  Undeterred, I decided to try and draw a version of a horse using the plots/plottools packages.  The resulting "horse" looks more like a cat, warthog,  mouse or chameleon! 

   I understand later versions of Maple are able to import graphic images.   I'd appreciate some feedback as to how easy this is, and the quality of the resulting images in Maple output.

How can in maple 2015? Help me?

Dear bright people of MaplePrimes, 

I'm stuck in a problem with dsolve.

I have a ODE system that I would like to solve numerically (because it's huge) in vars: var1(t), var2(t), var3(t), etc... Inside the ODE there are procedures with arguments like proc(f(x,y), a, b, c, etc...) where f(x,y) is a function for a curve (so x and y are variables) and a,b,c are numeric. 
Procedures have been written as indicated in the help page, i.e. differentiating whether the procedures are called with symbolic arguments or numeric arguments. So I call dsolve specifying the "known" procedures and a numeric method. Maple sets the problem correctly. However, when it tries to solve the equations numerically it points out that in the ODE ys there are some undefined parameters. Specifically, those parameters are x, y. But, again, x and y are not parameters but variables that are used in the procedures within the ODEs. 

I tried to include x and y as parameters and solve the system. However, before retrieving the solution, a numerical value must be given to all the parameters. 

What should I do if I need to keep f(x,y) symbolic in my procedures but I want to solve my ODE numerically? 

Thank you for supporting me. 
Thank you so much. 





I am trying to get Maple to display sin2(x)  rather than (sin(x))2.  In particular I am trying to have it output the latex for the prior using latex(sin^2(x) , output=string), or similar.

Any ideas would be greatly appreciated.





To determine whether or not equilibrium points of a nonlinear ordinary differential equation is globally stable, a Lyapunov function is often employed. Since there are no general methods for constructing Lyapunov functions, May I know if there are methods in MAPLE that can be used to determine these Lyapunov functions? Thanks

Just want some input if anyone thinks this is a bug or not

Hiding the contents of equation labels in one table (table -> properties -> uncheck show equation labels) removes all reference to the labels within that table.  Is that supposed to occur?

The table below has show equation labels checked.  If I uncheck the show equation labels in the first table I would expect the reference labels (1) and (2) to disappear and (3) and (4) references in the next table to remain unchanged.

However unchecking show equation labels in the first table relabels the two equations in the second table to (1) and (2) as shown below.  Is this a bug?

However this doesn't disrupt further content in the worksheet if references were made to equation label (1). After unchecking show equation labels in the first table, all original references to label (1) are replaced with the actual value (sin(x))

I'm a new Maple user so there may be a better way to do this, but Maple is not handling units the way I would expect.

Here is an example document (inline graphical below, also here: Plots_With_Units.mw) showing the impedance of a parallel resistor, inductor, and capacitor.  The plot is correct and it shows kHz along the abscissa like I want.  In order to get this I used kHz in the range fr, which is fine, but I had to also use kHz in the basic definition functions for Zl and Zc.

Now in order to get correct results from any of the Z functions I must use them with a kHz argument for f.  If I want to use them where other unit multipliers are more appropriate they won't work right, and many times I don't know what the appropriate multiplier should be until I'm into the design.  Then I need to go back and change the multipliers in the functions.  Or maybe in a single design I'll want to show Hz and kHz for the same function.

This seems like confusing units and dimensions.  The dimensions of inductive impedance (Zl), for example, can be expressed as frequency times inductance.  Whether the frequency is in units of Hz, kHz, or uHz doesn't matter and should simply scale the results.  I should be able to specify functions in dimensions and use units elsewhere as I want for convenient plotting and result formatting.

Is there a better way to do this, or is it a limitation in Maple?  The overall goal is to define functions with units but be able to use them and to format plots in whatever other units I like.

I'm a brand-new Maple user, so be gentle!

I was fooling around with a document and manually changed some fonts on various items, by just highlighting them and setting a new font.  I even selected everything and changed the font but not the size.  I didn't actually change any styles. 

I want to reset to the Maple default now, but can't seem to do it.  Format / Manage Style Sets... / Default Maple Style Set / OK doesn't do it, neither does Format / Manage Style Sets... / Load Style Set... navigating to the default stylesets\WorksheetDefault.mw and OK / OK.  Nothing seems to change.  I've been through Help:worksheet/documenting/styles and the verbiage doesn't match the dialog box screen shots there.  I'm not really sure what to do with that "help".

I can't seem to switch to a customized style set either.  If you manually change fonts, does that supercede the style?  Is there any way to revert?

Thanks for any help!

diff(r(t), t)-(diff(a[3](t), t))*r(t)/a[3](t)+a[1](t)*p[3](t)-3*r(t)*r(t) = 0;
dsolve(diff(r(t), t)-(diff(a[3](t), t))*r(t)/a[3](t)+a[1](t)*p[3](t)-3*r(t)^2 = 0, r(t));

 it does not give any solution ,please help.

how to solve optimal system of vector   fields in lie theory in maple?

What is a suitable replacement for eliminate?

Here is my code:


A := {x[5] = x[2]/x[1], x[6] = x[3]/x[2], x[7] = x[1]/x[4], x[8] = (2*x[2]+x[4])/(2*x[1]+x[3]+x[4])};
B := {x[1], x[2], x[3], x[4], x[8]};

([eliminate])(A, B);
([eliminate])(A, B minus {x[1]});
([solve])(A, B);

In the older versions of Maple the first example of eliminate would return same result as the solve example, but with current version I need to resort to the second example.

Hi, I need to calculate some discrete variational problems, but it's a hard work just by hand.

Is there any toolboxes about the discrete variational computation? Or how to design a program to do that?

In particular, I need to realize the functions:

1. the linearized operator and the adjoint operator of some expressions.

       For example:

       the linearized operator of u(n,m+1)u(n+1,m) is u(n+1,m)Tm+u(n,m+1)Tn

       the adjoint operator is u(n+1,m-1)T^(-1)m+u(n-1,m+1)T^(-1)n,

       (The latter is just the discrete Euler operator.)

      Tm, Tn is the shift operator, T^(-1) is the inverse operator of T.

2. discrete Euler-Lagrange equation.

I am not familar with the maple, please help!
