eq1 := T - M*g = 0;
eq2 := T1*sin(theta1) + T2*sin(theta2) - T = 0;
eq3 := -T1*cos(theta1) + T2*cos(theta2) = 0;
soln := solve({eq1,eq2,eq3},{T,T1,T2});


This returns a limit -> ... expression.  Since there is a sin(theta1) in the denominator, this should be undefined or infinity.

I don't know where to ask this.  Sorry if this is the wrong forum.

I use maplev-mode

I am attempting to modify it so
  f1 invokes maplev-cmaple-send-line
  f2 invokes maplev-cmaple-send-region
  f3 invokes maplev-cmaple-send-buffer

tried adding
(define-key map [(control c) (control c) ?l] 'maplev-cmaple-send-line)
(define-key map [(f1)]  'maplev-cmaple-send-line)

but, emacs seems to not recognize this.  I can change the global keymap to get this behavior.
Is there a way to do this in maplev.el?

I use maple 2016 on linux with X.  When minimized, the maple icon is very small.  Also, the help icon is very small.

Are larger icons available?

The maple icon is ./bin/Maple2016.png.  I can not find the help icon.  Any ideas?

I have a PDE with boundary conditions, from a NASA paper.  I always seem to have problems expressing the bc.

PDE := diff(u(x, t), t) = (1/4)*exp(2)*exp(-u(x, t))*(diff(diff(u(x, t), x), x))/(x^2+2);

The initial/boundary conditions are

@t=0, u(x, t) = 2-2*ln(-x^2+2)

@x=0, diff(u(x,t),x)=0  ## this is the bc I have problem expressing

@x=1, u(x,t) = 2+ln(1+t)

The exact solution given in the paper:

2 + ln(1+t) - 2*ln(2-x^2)

I tried

ics := u(x, 0) = 2*(1-ln(2-x^2));

bcs := D[1](u(0,t))=0, u(1,t)=2+ln(1+t);

PDEtools[Solve]([PDE,ics,bcs]); ## no solution

How do I do this?

I have several maple worksheets (from the web) that have discussion blocks mixed within executable blocks.

All the executable blocks are delineated with a single '[' at the left while the discussion blocks do not.

How do I do this?
