I put libgsl.dll in the same directory as 143_acer-method-win.mws and it works.  Where is a better place to put the GSL library?  I tried c:/binw but that didn't work for me.  I got a message that said I should reinstall...

Also, why is all of Acer's Maple red?

And, why do I get a dialog box that says "The worksheet may contain features which are not compatible with the chosen format.  Continue?" when I save Acer's and your Maple after I twiddle with it?

Acer,

You did it.  I think you did it.  I'm not quite sure since even though I can run a Windows XP version of your Maple/GSL I don't quite know what all that fancy stuff is about.

So far, I have never seen a problem that can not be solved using Maple.  Not that I can solve them all.  Please, everybody, do not feel obligated to show me one.

Thank you and all the wizards that gather here.  You make this place so amazingly magical and entertaining.

Thanks, I got it running.  I think that

-2.00775e-7 + I*4.27539e-8     should be

-2.00775e-7 + I*4.27539e-7

Acer seems to be getting the correct answer.  Does any body but Acer have any doubts?

Is there any place I can read about NAG?  I'm not sure I want to read about it but I might.

Thank you but I seem to be missing a library.  I don't have libgsl.dll.  I searched for it and didn't find it.  I got the following message:

"Error, external linking: error loading external library c:/binw/libgsl.dll: The specified module could not be found."

What, everybody's not using Windows XP!  So Bill Gates isn't Hegeman yet.  I've got an OLPC on order.

It looks like Google can help me find and get libgsl.dll.

Wow, what an effort.  I'd like to study that Maple closely.  Can you upload a file that I can download or is that not the fasion?  I suppose that there are some folks that don't want to take the time to download.  They'd rather have it right in front of them.  I want to run it and to do so I'll have to cut it, past it and edit it and I'm sure to make mistakes.  I'm new around here.  I don't know the way that gets results.

Ya, chaotic and off topic but interesting.

Acer,

I put that fancy Maple in my Airy disc file where power was defined as you show it and nothing seemed to happen.

Did you see this in the Maple file in the subject Unapply post?

powerfunction := unapply(power, theta)

I found it in Introduction to Maple, Third Edition by Andre Heck page 208.  His book is based on Maple 8.

Would you please look at the A Real Life Test post.  All you have to do is look at his graph down near the bottom of the post or his BitWise article and to me it just doesn't seem to answer the question.  The width of the spacial pulse could be 35% or 42%.

On the other hand, don't bother.  The only thing that matters is that there is a very nasty integral that Mathematica will evaluate numerically and Maple will not.

Acer,

I find that what surprised you is disappointing to me but not surprising.  That may be because Maple has surprised me many times recently.  In your case, I suspect that Maple doesn't surprise you much any more.
