Hello there,

I have, of late, experienced some funny output when using the DifferentialGeometry package.

The command DGsetup retuns vector fields and 1-forms with stars enclosed in back primes attached to them. The same predicament occurs as a result of an operation (evalDG) but only when the vector or the form is not multiplied by a scalar.

This phenomenon does not occur with Maple 17!

Has anyone experienced such a phenomenon and how has they fixed the issue (providing it is an issue).

Many thanks in advance.

Kind regards,

Freddy Baudine

Hello there!

There seems to be an issue with indexed variables and the instruction "DGsetup" of the differential geometry package when used with Maple 17. An error is returned to the effect that DGsetup is expecting independent variables to be unassigned names. This phenomenon does not occur with Maple 16!

Here is what I get:

> restart;
> with(DifferentialGeometry); with(Tools); with(Tensor); with(LinearAlgebra);

Executing the following command, I get an error with Maple 17 which does not occur with Maple 16!

> DGsetup([seq(x[i], i = 1 .. 4)], M, verbose);
Error, (in DifferentialGeometry:-DGsetup) expected 1st independent variable to be an unassigned name, received: x[1]

Is there any fix for this problem?

Kind regards
Freddy Baudine
