what is the order of the group?

do maple 17 have this group? how to show?

guys ,

in a differential equation i want to expand its variable, but i  have some problem with it for exponential term

How to find the determining equation for a system of fractional differential equation using Maple 15?

How do i proceed to solve two differential equations?

Two equations two unknowns is easy to solve in polynomial algebraic equations. Example: x+y=5; x-y=3; The solution is x=4; y=1 by adding the equations we arrive at.

The two equations are second order differential equations with two variables say temperature T (x,y) and velocity c(x,y). Assume any simple equation (one dimensional as well i.e. T(x) and c(x) which you can demonstrate with ease, I have not formulated the exact equations and boundary conditions yet for SI Engine simulation.

Thanks for comments, suggestions and answers expected eagerly.



I am trying to realize the following calculation in Maple.

  \left[\sum_{i=0}^n y_i(x) \partial_x^i , \sum_{j=0}^m z_j(x) \partial_x^j \right]  \\
=   \sum_{i=0}^n \sum_{j=0}^m \sum_{l=0}^i  \binom il y_i(x) \left( \partial_x^{i-l} z_j(x)\right) \partial_x^{l+j} \\
- \sum_{j=0}^m \sum_{i=0}^n \sum_{l=0}^j  \binom jl z_j(x) \left( \partial_x^{j-l} z_i(x)\right) \partial_x^{l+i} \ .



Is there a way to make maple understand d/dx as a differential opperator and calculate with it? When i for example try to calculate diff(d/dx, x) it should give me d^2/dx^2 as a result. Unfortunately i don't know how to realize this.

Basic problem is i don't know how to realize operator expressions in maple like for example:

f(x) d/dx      ( f(x) is a smooth function of x here )

where when applied to a function h(x) it should result in f(x) d/dx h(x) .


Is that possible?


Thank you very much in advance.

In this section, we will consider several linear dynamical systems in which each mathematical model is a differential equation of second order with constant coefficients with initial conditions specifi ed in a time that we take as t = t0.

All in maple.

Hi everybody!

It's nice to join in this forum.

I'm trying to get the analytic solution of the Bernouilli-Euler beam equation, with the next boundary conditions:

w(x,t) = displacements.

w(0,t) = 0   -> It's a cantilever beam. At the x=0 it's clamped.

diff(w(x,t),x) = 0.   -> the gyro in the clamp is zero.

E*I*diff(w(L,t),x,x) = 0  -> the moment at the end of the beam (x=L) is zero.

E*I*diff(w(L,t),x,x,x) = 0  -> the shear at the end of the beam (x=L) is zero too.

I'm not able to introduce the second and the third derivatives as boundary conditions in the pdsolve equation. I post the hole code:

ode := I*E*(diff(w(x, t), x, x, x, x))+m*(diff(w(x, t), t, t)) = 0;

s := pdsolve(ode, w(x, t));

ode1 := op([2, 1, 1], s);

ode2 := op([2, 1, 2], s);

f1 := op(4, rhs(ode1));

f2 := op(2, rhs(ode2));

sol1 := dsolve(ode1, f1);

sol2 := dsolve(ode2, f2);

sol := rhs(sol1)*rhs(sol2);

conds := [w(0, t) = 0, (D[1](w))(0, t) = 0, eval(I*E*(D[1, 1](w))(x, t), x = L) = 0, eval(I*E*(D[1, 1, 1](w))(x, t), x = L) = 0];

pde := [ode, conds];

pdsolve(pde, w(u, t));

And I get this error:

"Error, (in PDEtools/pdsolve) invalid input: `pdsolve/sys` expects its 1st argument, SYS, to be of type {list({`<>`, `=`, algebraic}), set({`<>`, `=`, algebraic})}, but received [I*E*(diff(diff(diff(diff(w(x, t), x), x), x), x))+m*(diff(diff(w(x, t), t), t)) = 0, [w(0, t) = 0, (D[1](w))(0, t) = 0, I*E*(D[1, 1](w))(L, t) = 0, I*E*(D[1, 1, 1](w))(L, t) = 0]]"

It's seems I'm introducing the Boundary conditions of the second and third derivatives in a wrong way, but I can't discover how to do it.

Thanks very much in advance to everybody!!


P.D. - I have use this "tutorial" to write the code ( ). Thanks very much again. 


Hello there, could someone tell me how to input this differential equation?

d2x/dt2 - (3)dx/dt + 2x = 2t -3 

x=2, t=0, dx/dt=4

Hi there,

I'm trying to get the values from the output of a dsolve command.

I have a system of differential equations:

de1 := diff(V(t), t) = V(t)-(1/3)*V(t)^3-W(t)+Ie;
de2 := diff(W(t), t) = 0.8e-1*(V(t)+.7-.8*W(t))

For a range of the independent variable t and for some given values of the parameter Ie, I would like to get the value of the dependent variable V, as well as its minimum/maximum values for each Ie.

Can anybody suggest a solution please?

Hi there,

I've got the following differential equation system:,

dU/dt = delta·dotD -lambda·U - kappa·U^2
dL/dt = (1-phi)·lambda·U + 1/4 ·kappa·U^2

being phi, delta, kappa, lambda, kappa some fixed parameters of the system, and where dotD (the derivative wrt time of a function D), which is defined a piecewise funtion:

dotD(t)=1/(3·T1)·DT for t in [0,T1]

dotD(t)=2/(3·(T2-T1-T))·DT for t in [T1+T,T2]

where T and DT are also known, and T1 approaches 0, and T2 approaches T1+T.

Setting the equation system in Maple and trying to solve it, gives a NULL result. However, trying to solve each piece separately seems to work fine.

Why is this?


Furthermore, taking limits for the [T1+T,T2] part (having solved each piece separately) yields an invalid limits point error. Ain't the possibility to take limits for both parameters at the same time?

Any ideas?


This is the Maple worksheet:

Thank you.

Hi there,
I have a set of differential equations whose solution, Jacobian matrix and its eigenvalues, direction field, phase portrait and nullclines, need to be computed.

Each of the equations has a varying parameter.

I know how to get the above for a single parameter value, but when I set a range of values for the parameters, Maple is not able to handle all cases as I would expect: solving the differential equation system:

eq1 := x*(1.6*(1-(1/100)*x)-phi*y)
eq2 := (x/(15+x)-0.3e-1*x-.4)*y+.6+theta
desys := [eq1, eq2];
vars := [x, y];
steadyStates := map2(eval, vars, [solve(desys)])

already yields an error:
Error, (in unknown) invalid input: Utilities:-SetEquations expects its 2nd argument, equations, to be of type set({boolean, algebraic, relation}), but received {-600*y+(Array(1..2, {(1) = 8400, (2) = 15900})), Array(1..5, {(1) = 0, (2) = 0, (3) = 0, (4) = 0, (5) = 0})}

The equations are the following:
de1 := diff(x(t), t) = x(t)*(1.6*(1-(1/100)*x(t))-phi*y(t));
de2 := diff(y(t), t) = (x(t)/(15+x(t))-0.3e-1*x(t)-.4)*y(t)+.6+theta

the parameters being:
phi:=[0 0.5 1 1.5 2]
theta:=[5. 10.]

How can I handle the situation so that Maple computes each of the above for each combination of the parameters?

I would like to avoid using two for loops and having to store all results in increasingly bigger and complicated arrays.

The worksheet at issue is this:


Hi all,

I am trying to solve the following differential equation numerically using dsolve,


y * abs (y''') = -1

y(0) =1, y'(0) = 0, y''(0)=0


it works fine when tthe absolute function is not there, i.e. yy''' = -1. 

Do you have any suggestion?

Hi there,

I would like to compute and display the nullclines of a set of ordinary differential equations.

AFAIK, I can compute the nullclines in Maple by defining the equations and solving the system


# Define the equations
eq1 := u(t)*(1-u(t)/kappa)-u(t)*v(t) = 0;
eq2 := g*(u(t)-1)*v(t) = 0;

# Solve the system (i.e. compute the nullclines)
sol := solve({eq1, eq2}, {u(t), v(t)});

However, I am not quite able to imagine how to display them over a dfieldplot or a phaseportrait.

Attached is an example with some differential equations, and their vector field and trajectories:

It can be use to illustrate how to (compute and) display the nullclines.


Thank you,
