These are questions asked by Adam Ledger

I couldnt find this command in the number theory package, as far as what i am thinking of doing it should be straight forward but very long winded, so if I have missed this command throughout the packages up to Maple 2016 I would appreciate someone telling me otherwise I suppose it's what i am doing for the next few hours

Basically it spits out the subset of values for which a division by zero error will occur for the function you specify on  range you specify for each of it's arguments, but I get an ambigous error when ever exponentiation features in the function I specify, which of course dramatically reduces the application of the calculator. Division,addition,substraction and multiplication are currently the only available arithmetic operators availble for the function window that I know the error will not occur.

If some one can help it is much appriciated

Is there something I should be doing whenever I use simplify to avoid things like this, or should I stop using the "is" function all together?


interface(showassumed = 0):


sum(binomial(k+j, k), j = 0 .. n-k) = binomial(n+1, k+1)

(n-k+1)*binomial(n+1, k)/(k+1) = binomial(n+1, k+1)


#And we have:
is(sum(binomial(k+j, k), j = 0 .. n-k) = binomial(n+1, k+1))



#And since:
is(simplify(convert(sum(binomial(k+j, k), j = 0 .. n-k) = binomial(n+1, k+1), 'factorial')))



is(sum(binomial(k+j, k), j = 0 .. n-k) = binomial(n+1, k+1)) = is(simplify(convert(sum(binomial(k+j, k), j = 0 .. n-k) = binomial(n+1, k+1), 'factorial')))



Why is lamba protected as something it traditionally isnt for this package?




lambda(n) = (-1)^Omega(n)




lambda(n) = (-1)^Omega(n)
