Both of these issues, namely that it is not possible to enter a '}' in 2d math in Windows, as well as the issue with needing to press characters such as `, ^, ~, ´ twice are bugs that were introduced in 17.01 and are strictly present on international keyboards. 

We are currently working on a fix for these issues as we speak.  For the moment, workarounds include reverting back to 17.00 or using 1D math. Another workaround for the } issue in 2D is to press and hold ALT and enter the ascii code 125 using the keypad.

If anyone experiences any other strange keyboard issues with international keyboards, please let us know at support (at) maplesoft.com

Maple is not available on any mobile platforms at this time, however, you can access Maple worksheets through the Maple cloud on tablets: http://maplecloud.maplesoft.com .

Your worksheet might be corrupted.  Depending on the degree of corruption, this problem may be fixable using the advice provided here: http://www.mapleprimes.com/questions/129377-There-Were-Problems-During-The-Loading

Make sure to create a backup before you try though.

As is noted in the post here, Maplesoft is working with the team at DigiArea, Inc. to further develop and enhance their Integrated Development Environment (IDE) for Maple. Once this work is finished, there will hopefully be more detailed testing reports available.


Have a look at the steps on the following FAQ:

You can use the explore command to see how the shape of the curve is affected by the parameters a & b.

Type in:

Explore( plot3d( b*exp(a*x^2)+y^2 , x = -10 .. 10, y = -10 .. 10) );

Choose 'skip' for x & y in the subsequent dialog box and change a & b to whatever range you'd like. 

For example, try a from 0 to 0.1 and b from 0 to 100.  You can then explore the plot of the expression using the sliders.

Hope this helps.

There are no official plans to test Maple 16 in 12.04 at this time, and as such, Maple 16 isn't officially supported in Ubuntu 12.04, but it should still work as expected. 

So far, many users are running with this configuration, and there has only been a few reported issues on some machines:

Hope this helps.

I tried running your code in Maple 16 and did get a different result, see below. Is this the result you were expecting? If not, which part of the solution is wrong?


sum(binomial(r,c) * binomial(2*k+1-r, a-c) * binomial(2*k+1-r, b-c), c=0..r);

binomial(2 k + 1 - r, a) binomial(2 k + 1 - r, b) hypergeom([-r, -a, -b], [2 k + 2 - r - a, 2 k + 2 - r - b], -1) -- binomial(r, r + 1) binomial(2 k + 1 - r, a - r - 1) binomial(2 k + 1 - r, b - r - 1) hypergeom([1, 1, -a + 1 + r, -b + 1 + r], [r + 2, 2 k + 3 - b, 2 k + 3 - a], -1)

The OpenWatcom C Compileris often installed with Maple and is used as the default code compiler for native C code.  for more information, see http://www.maplesoft.com/support/help/Maple/view.aspx?path=Compiler/Compile

It doesn't hurt to install the Watcom compiler even if you are not going to use it, but it is necessary to have the compiler installed if you intend on compiling any code.

For a general comparison, you can have a look at the following: http://www.maplesoft.com/products/maple/compare/

The latest version of Maple is 16 and the latest version of Matlab is 2012a.

MapleToolbox_Windows.exe is the installation package for the Matlab link.  This allows you to use Maple as the symbolic engine for Matlab.

By default, if you have Matlab installed, this link is configured automatically when Maple is installed. If you do not have Matlab installed, then it is not run and you won't have much use for it.

We have no plans to release a collection of the applications available on the app centre.  We haven't seen a lot of demand for any collection as most users just search for and download the applications that they are interested in. We do ship example .mw files with Maple, so it may be conceivable that some applications from the app centre might find their way into the shipped product and if we find that there is a significant demand for a collection of apps, it is certainly something we could revisit.

The 32-bit version of Excel only supports interaction with other 32-bit programs.

One fix would be for you to also install the 32-bit version of Maple.  Note that you can have both the 32-bit and 64-bit versions of Maple installed on the same computer. This way, Excel calls the 32-bit version, while you can continue to use the 64-bit version for your day to day work.

Firstly, your version of Maple is not supported in Fedora 17.  Maple 13 was released several years before Fedora 17 and there are several issues that may cause it not to run.  To summarize a some of these:

Maple has historically been supported in Red Hat, Suse and Ubuntu and is supported in Red Hat 6.0 (Fedora 14).  However, in RHEL 6.1 and above or Fedora 15 or above, Red hat has implemented a new consistent network naming structure to name their network cards.  With this new convention, Maple can no longer be activated and as such, will not run.

There is a workaround for this though, if you don't mind renaming your network drive from em1 to eth0.  If you don't mind renaming this drive, then Maple should run just fine.  This drive rename is a lot easier than it sounds and can be done using the following steps: http://www.maplesoft.com/support/faqs/detail.aspx?sid=32610

Now the unrelated 32/64 bit license manager issue that you mention is another sticking point, which can usually be remedied by installing the 32-bit libraries for your OS.

However more importantly, even if you do succeed in getting Maple 13 up and running in Fedora 17, there is a much bigger issue, which has been covered in a few Primes posts including: http://www.mapleprimes.com/questions/130220-Maple-15-X86-64-LINUX-Fedora-16-Log2

Long story short, unfortunately, either upgrading to a later version of Maple, or downgrading your OS may be your only options. Sorry that we couldn't be of more assistance.
