Good Day.

I have attached a worksheet for a time series that comprises 45 data points. I would like to investigate the overall demand (for forecasting purposes) and to isolate the underlying demand components; that is, trend, level, seasonal, and residual. However, I have difficulty in distinguishing each component in the plot as the colors appear to be similar and some may have relatively small values.

Does anyone know how to recolor these components so they appear to be more obvious? It would be also beneficial to isolate and plot each individual component - can that be done?

Thanks for your interest!


Good day.

Several years ago, I obtained access to a clustering package that was useful to my studies using Maple 17.

In the meantime, I switched to another computer and now, I  cannot access the file, ClusterAnalysis.mla.

Unfortunately, I do not recall how I was able to access this library file.

Can anybody please advise me on the exact steps that are necessary to initialize and execute this file?

Thanks for reading ...

Good day.

I am working on a network flow problem that uses a linear programming (simplex) technique.The flow is directed across 3 regions (a, b, and c) and there are 2 nodes within region a, 4 nodes in region b, and 5 nodes in region c.

I wish to determine the minimum cost from regions a to c and from regions b to c that satisfies the requirement of each of the 5 nodes in region c. The objective and constraints are constructed and Maple produces the minimum solution (see attached). While the output is useful when the number of nodes is small, I would like to extend this to a larger-scale case and so the output would need to be more user-friendly / graphic.

I have 2 questions - 

1. Does anyone know a way to attach labels for each region and each node to these solution matrices?
    For instance -  the first matrix, x, specifies a quantity of 2,000 that flows from node #1 in region a to node #2 in region b
2. Is it possible to produce a network graph showing the directed flow from each region and from node to node?

Thanks to all for reading this!


Good day all.

My particular question concerns a Traveling Salesman-type problem.

Suppose I wish to move along the x-y plane and visit specific nodes (see the attached worksheet).

Starting at the origin, A, I intend to visit four locations, B to E, and finally return to the origin point. These nodes may be visited in any order - but, my total distance travelled must be a minimum.
However, my direction of travel is restricted; namely:

1. Movement is limited to the x and y-directions only (up and down as well as left and right)
2. Horizontal (left or right) movement is permitten only at y=1 and y=10

This second rule restricts me from turning left or right in between y= 1 and 10.
The Traveling Salesman routine (attached) is constructed to select a tour that is confined to orthogonal movement but it does not observe the second restriction (i.e. move left or right when you reach y=1 or y=10).

Is there any way in which I can build this condition into the routine so that the movement along the circuit observes the restrictions? 

If so - is it possible to graphically illustrate the order of travel (using arrows from point-to-point) on a point plot?

I appreciate you taking the time to read this.


Good day.

When I export an animated 3D (surface contour) plot to a gif format, the image is incomplete (please see attached file).

Can anyone suggest a way to reformulate the expressions so the animated plot can be exported to Powerpoint intact?

Thanks for reading!
