## How can I export an animated 3D plot as ...

Maple 2021

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?

## How do I plot a function of two variable...

Maple 2018

Good day!

I would welcome any help to explain how to plot a simple function, z, of two variables, (x, y) so that I can show the relationships between variables.

Basically, I need to plot a family of z-curves for varying x and y values and also would like to understand how to display the z-y and z-x plots.

## How do I assign a letter to the lhs of e...

Maple 2018

Good day all.

If I generate a list containing (say) 100 elements or more, and each element is an ordered pair - is it possible to assign a letter to each element? The first 26 elements will have equal A to Z, the next 26 will take A1 to Z1, and so on.

For example if the list is [ [5,3], [2,5], ..., [3,1]], how do I construct it to become [A=[5,3], B=[2,5], ..., V3=[3,1]]?

Thank's a lot for your time.

## How do I determine the minimum distance ...

Maple

Good day.

I am wrestling a simple network (maze-type) problem and I hope someone can assist.

Given a standard x-y framework with several nodes whose locations are known, I would like to visit each node by starting from the origin, (0,0), and returning to that same point, A. (see attached)

However, I am permitted only to move horizontally and vertically within the maze.

Given that restriction, is there a routine that allows me to visit all locations, B, C, D, and E, such that the rectilinear distance is a minimum?

If there is a solution to this problem, can the distance also be given and order of visits specified?

## How do I extract the value of the smooth...

Maple

Good day.

I am interested in forecasting using the (trend-adjusted) exponential smoothing process and I have found Maple's Time Series Analysis function helpful.

However, can anyone tell me how to extract the values of the smoothing factors, alpha and beta, used in the computations?

Please see the attached example using 8 data points; the forecast value for the 9th period is computed by Maple.
