How can I generate some n-tuple random list of integers s.t. any component is between -30 and 50? For example if n=5 then four random of such 5-tuple are

[-1,2,8,7,9] , [0,-9,2,-3,-5] , [4,5,3,-8,-1] , [12, -5, 0, 6,8]

Let x and y be 4-digit integers such that the last digit of x is 7 and the last digit of y is 1. That is, x = abc7 and y = rst1, where a,b,c,r,s,t all run from 0 to 9. There are 1000 possibilities for x and  1000 for y. What are all possible products x*y? I would like all possible products listed in increasing order. The first element of the list should be 7*1 = 7 (since 0007*0001 = 7). The last should be 9997*9991 = 99880027. Thank you! 

How to find the maximum natural number n s. t. the sum of its cubed digits is greater than or equal to n? Of course, with Maple. The same question for the sum of the  digits to k-th power. Here are my unsuccessful attempts:
1.Optimization:-Maximize(n, {n <= convert(map(c ->c^3, convert(n, base, 10)), `+`)}, assume = integer);

Error, invalid input: `convert/base` expects its 1st argument, n, to be of type {integer, list(integer)}, but received n

2. for n while n <= convert(map(c ->c^3, convert(n, base, 10)), `+`) do print(n) end do;


Let M and K be given positive integers.

I struggle with how to write efficiently this formula in Maple,mainly because it sums over *pairs* of integers K1 and K2, with the given property that "K1+2*K2=K":




sum { M!/(M-K1-K2)! * K!/(K1! * K2)! * 1/M^K * 1/2^K2 : such that K1 + 2*K2 = K}

The "!" means factorial.

I currently have a function quadsum(n) that determines the [x,y] solutions of the above equation for an integer n. :

quadsum:= proc(n::nonnegint)
k:= 0, mylist:= table(),
x:= isqrt(iquo(n,2)), y:= x, x2:= x^2, y2:= y^2;
if 2*x2 <> n then x:= x+1; x2:= x2+2*x-1; y:= x; y2:= x2; end if;
while x2 <= n do
y:= isqrt(n-x2); y2:= y^2;
if x2+y2 = n then k:= k+1; mylist[k]:= [x,y] end if;
x:= x+1; x2:= x2+2*x-1;
end do;
convert(mylist, list)
end proc:

How would I alter this so that I get [x,y] for n= (5^a).(13^b).(17^c)(29^d) for non-negative integers a,b,c,d?

1.  a procedure quadsumstats whose input is an integer n. This procedure should return a list of length 

n whose kth  entry is the number of solutions to
x^2 + y^2 = k 
1 <= k and k <= n

I am sort of confused as to how to construct that list of length n and how to obtain integer solutions to the equation in maple.


a procedure firstCount(k) that finds the first integer
representations as
"x^2+y^2= n." What does it mean for an integer to have k representations?





The procedure  Partition  significantly generalizes the standard procedure  combinat[partition]  in several ways. The user specifies the number of parts of the partition, and can also set different limitations on parts partition.

Required parameters:  n - a nonnegative integer, - a positive integer or a range (k  specifies the number of parts of the partition). The parameter  res  is the optional parameter (by default  res is  ). If  res  is a number, all elements of  k-tuples must be greater than or equal  res .  If  res  is a range  a .. b ,   all elements of  k-tuples must be greater than or equal  a  and  less than or equal  b . The optional parameter  S  - set, which includes elements of the partition. By default  S = {$ 0.. n} .

The code of the procedure:

Partition:=proc(n::nonnegint, k::{posint,range}, res::{range, nonnegint} := 1, S::set:={$0..n})  # Generates a list of all partitions of an integer n into k parts

local k_Partition, n1, k1, L;


k_Partition := proc (n, k::posint, res, S)

local m, M, a, b, S1, It, L0;

m:=S[1]; M:=S[-1];

if res::nonnegint then a := max(res,m); b := min(n-(k-1)*a,M)  else a := max(lhs(res),m); b := min(rhs(res),M) fi;

S1:={$a..b} intersect S;

if b < a or b*k < n or a*k > n  then return [ ] fi;

It := proc (L)

local m, j, P, R, i, N;

m := nops(L[1]); j := k-m; N := 0;

for i to nops(L) do

R := n-`+`(op(L[i]));

if R <= b*j and a*j <= R then N := N+1;

P[N] := [seq([op(L[i]), s], s = {$ max(a, R-b*(j-1)) .. min(R, b)} intersect select(t->t>=L[i,-1],S1) )] fi;


[seq(op(P[s]), s = 1 .. N)];

end proc;

if k=1 then [[b]] else (It@@(k-1))(map(t->[t],S1))  fi;

end proc;


if k::posint then return k_Partition(n,k,res,S) else n1:=0;

for k1 from lhs(k) to rhs(k) do

n1:=n1+1; L[n1]:=k_Partition(n,k1,res,S)



[seq(op(L[i]), i=1..n1)] fi;


end proc:


Examples of use:

Partition(15, 3);



Partition(15, 3..5, 1..5);  # The number of parts from 3 to 5, and each summand from 1 to 5



Partition(15, 5, {seq(2*n-1, n=1..8)});  # 5 summands and all are odd numbers 



A more interesting example.
There are  k banknotes in possible denominations of 5, 10, 20, 50, 100 dollars. At what number of banknotes  k  the number of variants of exchange  $140  will be maximum?


for k from 3 to 28 do

n:=n+1: V[n]:=[k, nops(Partition(140, k, {5,10,20,50,100}))];


V:=convert(V, list);

max(seq(V[i,2], i=1..nops(V)));

select(t->t[2]=8, V);


Here are these variants:

Partition(140, 10, {5,10,20,50,100});

Partition(140, 13, {5,10,20,50,100});






According to this site,"It is known that every even number can be written as a sum of at most six primes".

i wanted to test this using maple.

> PF := proc (a::integer)

> local cst,obj,res;
> cst := add(x[i], i = 1 .. numtheory:-pi(prevprime(a))) <= 6;
> obj := add(x[i]*ithprime(i), i = 1 .. numtheory:-pi(prevprime(a)))-a;
> res := Optimization:-LPSolve(obj, {cst ,obj>=0}, assume={nonnegative,integer}); end proc:
> PF(30);
[0, [x[1] = 0, x[2] = 0, x[3] = 6, x[4] = 0, x[5] = 0, x[6] = 0,x[7] = 0, x[8] = 0, x[9] = 0, x[10] = 0]]

the third prime is 5 and 6 of them make 30. as an aside, it would be nice to know how to get maple to output "30 = 6x5".

this is obviously pretty limited, because 30 can be written as the sum of two primes (7+23 and 11+19) [GOLDBACH], but using DS's GlobalSearch for all solutions takes a long time to compute. also I have to nominate the highest prime.

any suggestions?

I'm interested in doing some experimental mathematics using the PSLQ integer relation algorithm.  The only third-party program for doing PSLQ problems I've been able to find is a GNU C++ program with a less-than-user-friendly command-line interface.  I've heard that Maple implements PSLQ and I like the symbolic input and presentation it offers as a CAS, but I can't find any information on which alternative types of Maple 18 make the PSLQ algorithm available.

I don't know how to start.

In geom3d. I want to find the vertices A(x1,y1,z1), B(x2,y2,z2), where x1, y1, z1, x2, y2, z2 are integer numbers so that the triangle OAB  (O is origin) and perimeter and area are integer numbers. I tried

But my computer runs too long. I can not receive the result. How to get the answer?

If I the length of the side are 6, 25, 29. I tried 

DirectSearch:-SolveEquations([(x2-x1)^2+(y2-y1)^2+(z2-z1)^2 = 6^2, (x3-x2)^2+(y3-y2)^2+(z3-z2)^2 = 25^2,  (x3-x1)^2+(y3-y1)^2+(z3-z1)^2 = 29^2], {abs(x1) <= 30, abs(x2) <= 20, abs(x3) <= 20, abs(y1) <= 20, abs(y2) <= 20, abs(y3) <= 20, abs(z1) <= 20,abs(z2) <= 20, abs(z3) <= 20}, assume = integer, AllSolutions, solutions = 1);



Since it is not possible for me to reply directly in that new Maple Primes:
I branched. Feel free to re-join for a reasonable structure. What a mess.


I am rusty on such (may be it is 'obvious' via Lie theory). Your group is just the
group of invertible matrices over the integers (this follows from algebra). And as

   Let GL(2,Z) be the  group of all the matrices of dimension 2 over the integers with the determinant equal to +/-1.
   A matrix M in GL(2,Z) is called primitive if M is not equal to K^n for any K in GL(2,Z) and any positive integer n >= 2.
   Is the matrix M:= Matrix([[27,5],[11,2]]) primitive? How to determine it in Maple?

Edit. GL(2,Z) instead of UL(2,Z).

Dear friends,

I am reporting with a brief comment concerning the integral int(1/(1+x^a), x=0..infinity) with a>=2 a real number. This was evaluated here.

Now Maple 15 (X86 64 LINUX) will quite happily compute this in its most simple form involving the sine when a is not a positive integer or a rational number. If it is, however, a beta function term results,...

Dear friends,

this is to share with you what a joy it was to work with Maple on the problem of enumerating non-isomorphic graphs. This problem goes back to Polya and Harary and it is a beautiful example of Polya counting, while also being of notable simplicity, so that a high school student or an undergraduate can follow it easily.

I have worked on this problem over the years, adapting my solutions in Cocoa and Lisp as I gained insights. My first attempt used...
