Only one light source allowed...

I tried to use multiple light sources with transparency for 3D plots and could not get it to work.  There are indications in the plot,structure help that this is supposed to be possible.  I have attached a worksheet that demonstrates some of the problems with the "light" and "LIGHT" options for 3D plotting.  Much of the output has been removed since the graphics take so much space.  The same plots are generated in both Windows and Linux.

Does anyone...

When using "plotsetup(png,...)" the third rotational angle is ignored.  Attached are a worksheet and the corresponding three plots that demonstrate this bug.

Bug in PolynomialIdeals

by: Maple 16

Hello,

I am experiencing wrong results using the PolynomialIdeals package in Maple 16 (see radical_error.mw). Creating the same ideal with different generators, the radicals computed differ which of course is wrong:

with(PolynomialIdeals);
J := <t*(a+A), A*(b+B+t), b*(a+A), B*a-A*(b+t), (variables = {A, B, a, b, t})>:
J2 := <t*(a+A), A*(b+B+t), b*(a+A), B*(a+A...

Inappropriate printing of images and plots in...

Dear Maple Users

I have been testing Maple 16 for some time now, and I am overall very pleased with it. There is however one issue, which is really annoying. In previous version of Maple, images inserted into Maple and plots were printed much bigger than they looked like in the Worksheet. Then me and other users have requested to have the printed output look more like it does in the Worksheet on the computerscreen. Maple has adressed those user complaints in the new...

Postscript 3D Plot Export SCR : Maple 16.01 Update...

by: Maple

Maple 16 introduced dramatic changes to the postscript export facility of 3d plots. This is great news, but some bugs remain. Let me report here about my experience. (Note: Maple 15's 3d ps export was something like an encapsulated bmp, while Maple 16 is a genuine level3 postscript export tool)

The initial release in Maple 16.00 was buggy. In my experience, the export would hang most of the time. An improved release came with Maple 16.01. I have not experienced any...

can't find hflogb...

Which library is this hflogb implemented in? I could not find it in either libc or libm.

What is the exact name of the function that has been changed in 64bit distributions?

(Knowing this, there would be an easy fix. Even now, one can run older maple on newer linuxen: simply copy the old system libs (from /lib/x86_64-linux-gnu and /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu to a library under the maple install dir and tweak LD_LIBRARY_PATH in the maple wrapper script), but identifying...

a plot3d bug in maple?...

plot3d(sin(sqrt(x^2+y^2))/sqrt(x^2+y^2),x=-3..3,y=-3..3);

the command above makes a figure which has a hole(means discontinuity) at the (0,0).

is it a bug?

Unbelievable Maple 15.00 bug ???...

I think I have come across with what it looks like a very basic bug using the member function. I get the error message: "Error, cannot determine if this expression is true or false: (3) < 100"  after the execution of the last line to the next code:

>Test:=Array(1..3,[1,2,3]);
>member(3,Test,'l');
>if l<100 then print("yes"); end if;

am I doing something wrong ?? I even checked the type of the variable 'l' and it is indeed an integer...

Hi! I'm running Maple 15.01 64Bit on my Xubuntu 12.04.

I also got Maple 15 installed on my Windows7 64Bit computer to verify the results.

So let's see what is going wrong:

What does work?

Domain problems in plot for Maple 16

by: Maple 16

The basic plot routine in Maple 16 has a serious problem with the domain.  The following is an example.

The domain is correct in Maple 15.  This failure occurs in both Windows 7 and Linux.

PS driver in Maple 16 for Windows

by: Maple 16

I have been generating graphics in Maple 16 using the plotsetup(ps,...) command under Windows 7 and Linux.  Maple tech support has a fix for Linux and has confirmed that there is a bug in the Windows version.  These are a Windows eps (converted to png for uploading) and png of the same figure.  The eps conversion should not do this.

The Export function in ExcelTools completely overwrites Excel 2010 ".xlsx" files with no errors or messages.  The same command works properly for Excel 2003 ".xls" files.  It looks like a bug to me.
