I have been bothered lately by the number format for axis labels in Maple. My problem existed before, but it apparently didn't bother me before. I have spent many hours trying to find an answer in the program help, in MaplePrimes, and in general online searches. I am not having any luck at all (good luck, that is).

I want to change the format of the axis numbering. Maple seems to default to 2 decimal places in my graph, and I really need more. Oddly, when I export the graph to PDF, I get another decimal place (even though I didn't explicitly ask for one). 

How do I change the axis-label format? Any idea what I might get when I export the graph?

Thanks for your help,



Hi MaplePrimes, 

I am interested in obtaining some gravitational field equations from an action using the FunDiff command. I have been able to write what I think is a pretty short and quick worksheet(with an arbitrary metric) and I am easily able to obtain the Einstein Field Equations. However, when I introduce some new more complicated terms into the action and apply the Simplify command maple does not appear to be able to evaluate and I end up halting the computation. When I specify a metric Maple, for example Schwarzschild, Maple will easily be able to Simplify my expression but it will use metric components during the process. Where what I am interested in is just the Tensor expression with respective indices. 

I was wondering if anyone had any thoughts on how I could resolve this. 

I have attached the worksheet that I am working with. I look forward to your thoughts/comments.

Thank you.  


Help, have no idea what to do.

Obtain a finite topological space from a dynamical system specified as a system of ODEs, by writing Maple code for following steps (use Maple packages DynamicSytems and GraphTheory, preferablly):

  1. Visualize the phase space of the system by plotting solution curves for different initial conditions.

  2. Consider a finite region of the phase space.

  3. Define a finite grid of points in the region.

  4. Define a topology on the grid points based on their connectivity.

  5. Give some useful information regarding the dynamical system in terms of topological properties.

Article https://mapleprimes.com/posts/208409-Downloading-Historical-Stock-Quotes has worked well for the last few years.

Somewhere in the last 6 months Yahoo has changed the method. Crumbstore no longer exists within the page source.

Does anyone have a method that currently works.

Problem is also verified at: https://www.solveforum.com/forums/threads/solved-yahoo-finance-cookie-and-crumb-not-working.2316600/ ,however they do not have a solution.

Dear all,

consider two lists of complex values :

list1 := [l1,l2,l3,l4,l5]

list2 := [s1,s2,s3,s4,s5].

There is a set of second order differential equation


where A is sum of elements of list1 and list2 and B is multiplication of their element. Therefore,






How can I create a set of differential equations and initial conditions based on nops(list1), then solve this system of differential equations numerically in Maple.

since u[i] are function of k, next step is to transforme them to real space by inverse fourier transform.

finally save the results and plot them.

Note that for simplisity I wrote a linear equation but it is not. so, because of nonlinear terms it is not possible to use superposition of the solution. I have to take them as coupled system of equations.


for example

list1 := [ [0., -5.496799068*10^(-15)-0.*I], [.1, 5.201897725*10^(-16)-1.188994754*I], [.2, 6.924043163*10^(-17)-4.747763855*I], [.3, 2.297497722*10^(-17)-10.66272177*I], [.4, 1.159126178*10^(-17)-18.96299588*I] ] 

list2 :=[ [0., -8.634351786*10^(-7)-67.81404036*I], [.1, -0.7387644021e-5-67.76491234*I], [.2, -0.1433025271e-4-67.59922295*I], [.3, -0.2231598645e-4-67.25152449*I], [.4, -0.3280855430e-4-66.56357035*I] ]

where first element is k and the second value is l_i and s_i

the differential equation is

ode_u[i]:= diff(u[i](t),t$2)+I*(list1[i][2]+list2[i][2])*diff(u[i](t),t)-list1[1][2]*list2[2][2]*u[i](t)=0;

eta is in fourier space where k values are in list1[i][1].

We laso know that f(-k)= - f*(k) where f=list[i][2]

and u[i] as function of k, initially has a Gaussian shape at t=0 in fourier space..

Thanks in advance for your help

Anyone out there converted the  nyqlog at MATLAB/nyqlog.m at master · nielsSkov/MATLAB · GitHub  to Maple or Maple Flow? For Nyquist plots...

Bonjour, petite question simple que je me pose la MapleSim permet de tout réaliser ?

I get about 3-4 of these each day when I run my long script. Maple 2022.2 on windows 10

They happen much more for me in Maple 2022 than before. I am on windows 10 pro with 128 GB ram, new PC, very fast PC.

googling, I see others having same problem. 


"Ever since I upgraded to Maple 2022, relatively intensive symbolic calculations and plots frequently kill the kernel and throw the error message “Kernel Connection has been lost”. This never happened on Maple 2021."

It happens for me whenever I run something that takes long time and it is always random when and where it happens.

This is really disappointing as one expects software quality of a product to improve over time but for me, I find Maple's becoming less robust and its quality becoming worst not better.  This is too bad, because Maple is a good language and I like programming in it, but it is the software build quality of the overall software which needs to be improved. 

I see many hangs also where I have to kill mserver.exe may be 10 times a day just to get the script to complete. (this is besides this kernel lost connection problem). Those also happen at random places in the script. Restarting the script from same place, it runs OK now.

Is there something one can do to find why this lost connection happens?  Crash dump somewhere? Log file somewhere?

I do not have firewall. I use default windows 10 settings for security. Do not have any other special anti-virus software.  No other app I use on this PC crash like this. It is only Maple.


I want to import a numeric 2800*1 matrix from matlab to maple by following command, but faced error as bellow:

X := ImportMatrix("E:/.../Omega.mat", source = MATLAB);
 ImportMatrix:-ModuleApply called with arguments: E:/.../Omega.mat, datatype = auto, delimiter = (), format = (), mode = (), output = all, ragged = true, skiplines = 0, source = MATLAB, sourceid = all, transpose = false
 #(ImportMatrix:-ModuleApply,36): error
Error, (in ImportMatrix) Array index out of range
 locals defined as: file = E:/.../Omega.mat, src = Matlab, ext = ext, res = res, x = x, isv7 = isv7, del = false

Where is the problem?

How to import?

Hello guys
I'm having trouble solving a PDE using pdsolve-numerical. Here's a notebook attached.

I'm grateful if anyone can help.




I would appreciate any help to solve the following Partial Differential Equation, which is a mix of partial and regular derivatives as coefficients.

How to solve it with/without initial conditions?

Well, I'd like to prove (through the use of Maple): 

transform((x1, x2, x3, x4, x5) -> [x1 - x3, x2 - x4, x5])(inequal(And((x || (1 .. 5)) >=~ 0, norm([x || (1 .. 5)], 1) = 1))) # not Maple syntax

is equivalent to a filled pyramid

ImplicitRegion((X, Y, Z), 0 <= Z <= 1 - abs(X) - abs(Y)) # not SymPy syntax

transform((x1, x2, x3, x4, x5) -> [x1 - x3, x2 - x4, x5])(inequal(And((x || (1 .. 5)) >=~ 0, norm([x || (1 .. 5)], 2) = 1))) # not Maple syntax

is equivalent to a hemi-ball

ImplicitRegion((X, Y, Z), 0 <= Z <= sqrt(1 - X**2 - Y**2)) # not SymPy syntax

, and 

transform((x1, x2, x3, x4, x5) -> [x1 - x3, x2 - x4, x5])(inequal(And((x || (1 .. 5)) >=~ 0, norm([x || (1 .. 5)], 'infinity') = 1))) # not Maple syntax

is equivalent to a solid cuboid

ImplicitRegion((X, Y, Z), -1 <= X <= 1 & -1 <= Y <= 1 & 0 <= Z <= 1) # not SymPy syntax

. (Here, for the convenience of the descriptions, I utilize some non-standard notation from .) 
Note that ”two regions are equal" is a two-way property, which means the following proof 

is(Z >= 0) and is(Z <= 1 - abs(X) - abs(Y)) assuming (X, Y, Z) =~ (x1 - x3, x2 - x4, x5), x || (1 .. 5) >=~ 0, add(x || (1 .. 5)) = 1;
(*Accordingly, the latter region is a subset of the former one.*) 

is incomplete (because it's hard to determine whether the is routine always performs equivalent transformations in internal evaluation). 

So, can I execute such eliminations in Maple?

As the code:

poly := x^4 + 8*x + 12:
galois(poly, x)

"4T4", {"A(4)"}, "+", 12, {"(1 2 4)", "(2 3 4)"}

 Then I know it's Galois group has to be (isomorphic to) A4. And I can draw its Subgroup Lattice:

DrawSubgroupLattice(GaloisGroup(poly, x), 'indices')

But according to Galois's theory, each subgroup represents an intermediate field. As far as I know, ⑤⑥⑦⑧ are Q(r1),Q(r2),Q(r3) and Q(r4), respectively, where ri is the root of equation x^4+8x+12. But I have no idea what fields ②③④⑨ means. How do you calculate out those intermediate fields with maple?

Dear researchers,

Greetings, I have unable to apply Nonlinear Least-Squares Methods  for an SIR parameter estimation. May you share me your Maple code model as a  sample parameter estimation ?

Thank you in advance!!!

Dear people,

I have resolved the primitives of the equation of the odometric model.

I have plotted them to the Maple interface and I was thinking that it can have been done by the solver.

Nevertheless it has not been possible to do it.

Can you tell me if a package of Maple can resolve it ?

Best regards,

Edern Ollivier.
