Excellent, Thanks...

Thanks a lot for pointing out that example...my problem is cleared up. Keenan

METAPOST...

METAPOST is a high-level graphics programming language for creating extremely high-quality postscript and encapsulated postscript graphics for use in things like Latex documents. Granted, it's not particularly quick or easy, and requires some practice, but in my opinion, it's the way to go if you want to create publishable graphics in Latex documents. You can do just about anything, plots of curves and surfaces, addition of any annotations you want, circuit diagrams, Riemman sums, direction/vector fields,integral curves, flow lines, and many others. A really nice guide with lots of exercises and full solutions can be found here.

Problem Resolved...

I was able to download the new MapleCast today. It's clear you guys improved the audio, as I don't have to turn my speakers up to max just to hear. Thanks a lot; keep up the great work!

Podcast Available on iTunes?...

I have checked iTunes numerous times since the 8th episode of MapleCast was announced and it still has not shown up with the other MapleCasts...is anyone else having this problem? Thanks.

Simplify Works (Also Uses Pythagorean Id...

For your expression: y:=12/b/(b^s)*s/sin(Pi*b)^2*Pi^2 The simplify command returns: -12*s*Pi^2*b^(-1-s)/(-1+cos(Pi*b)^2) So it combines the powers of b, brings them to the numerator, and changes the denominator uses a pythagorean identity. I know this isn't exactly what you wanted, but at least Maple does combine the exponents. I would also like to know when (b^u)*(b^v) is ever not equal to b^(u+v). Maple performs this simplification with the simplify command without making any assumptions about u and v being real or complex.

You're Right...

I went back an reviewed the help page for the laplace command, and you're correct, I did misunderstand the mention of initial values. Thank you for pointing this out for me.

Here's one way to do it...

Define a function that sends a variable x to the subscript of a table (a table data structure can have non-integer indices), like this: >f:=x->table([a=.4,b=.2,c=.7])[x]: >f(a) .04 Another, more versatile way to do this would be to use a table with a name, so that you could edit it and add other indices and items, like this: >t:=table([a=.4,b=.2,c=.7]); >f:=x->t[x]; Then if you want to add an item to the table >t[newIndex]:=15; >f(newIndex); 15 I hope this is helpful.

That solved it...

That technique solved my problem; thanks a lot for your help!

The Problem Persists...

I began the block with the various package loading statements (ended by colons), then I added the the printf statement and did not supress the output. Unfortunately I still have the problem. This is how the inside of the block looks: > with(VectorCalculus): > with(plots): > printf("Initialization Complete"); Then when I collapse the block, I get this: with(VectorCalculus):with(plots): Initialization Complete Thanks a lot for your help.
