## Wrong integral result...

Maple 2019

Hello, There seems to be a bug in the int() routine when CPV is being used i.e.

restart;
f1 := (int(t^(2*a - 1)/(-t^2 + 1), t = 0 .. infinity, CPV = true) assuming (0 < a, a < 1));

the result given is

f1 := Pi/(2*sin(Pi*a)*(-1)^(1 - a))

but the correct result is

f1 := Pi/2*cot(Pi*a).

## convert(cos(Pi/2^n),radical)...

Maple 2019

Hello, I was wondering about the following.

cos(Pi/2^n) can be converted to a radical for each integer n, because cos(Pi/2)=0 is known and successively

cos(x)=sqrt( (1+cos(2x))/2 )

so in principle radical expressions should exist for all integers n. But maple only converts cos(Pi/8) to a radical, but not cos(Pi/16) and higher powers. Is there a simple way without writing an own program to obtain these radical expressions using convert(*,radical)?

## Physics Commutator does not sum over rep...

I have the following issue.

The way it is set at the moment, works kinda in that the final result is 0, which I tried to check.

However, the expression L2L2X[1] is not fully Simplified, since the term

-(4*X[a])*X[b]^2*P[a]*P[k] + (4*X[b]^2)*X[f]*P[f]*P[k]

is actually zero. I suppose that he doesn't manage because of the different indices "a" and "f" here. How can this be fixed?

When I comment out "Define" and use "Coordinates(X,P)" instead, it doesn't work. Seems to give the wrong result (Difference is not zero).

## How to do a nested collect...

Maple 2019

Second Try:

f:= c/(c - 1) - c*(Pi^2 - 12*ln(c))*(1 + c)/(12*(c - 1)^3*n) + (((144*c^3 + 1584*c^2 + 1584*c + 144)*ln(c)^2 - 24*Pi^2*(1 + c)*(c^2 + 10*c + 1)*ln(c) + (-96*c^3 - 288*c^2 + 288*c + 96)*Zeta(3) + Pi^2*((Pi^2 + 24)*c^3 + (11*Pi^2 + 72)*c^2 + (11*Pi^2 - 72)*c + Pi^2 - 24))*c)/(288*(c - 1)^5*n^2)

This expression is already arranged with respect to n. However, the nominator of each term is not collected with respect to c. So naturally I thought

collect(f,[n,c]) or collect(f,[n,c],simplify)

would work. But now he messes up the nominator i.e. he can not factor and simplify. Note that the single variable case collect(f,n,simplify) works in not messing up, but this is not what I want, since the nominator of each n-term is not in c-collected form.

collect(f,[n],u->collect(u,[c],...))

also does not work, since he messes up again.

By c-collected form I mean the following:

The n^0 and n^{-1} term are actually fine. The factorization in the second term is ok. But for the third term

f2:=(144*c^3 + 1584*c^2 + 1584*c + 144)*ln(c)^2 - 24*Pi^2*(1 + c)*(c^2 + 10*c + 1)*ln(c) + (-96*c^3 - 288*c^2 + 288*c + 96)*Zeta(3) + Pi^2*((Pi^2 + 24)*c^3 + (11*Pi^2 + 72)*c^2 + (11*Pi^2 - 72)*c + Pi^2 - 24)

what I mean by c-collected is

collect(f2,c,simplify)

This is the nominator of the n^{-2} term.

I sort of managed by the following to procedings:

of:=[op(f)];
add(`~`[`/`](collect~(numer~(of), c, factor), ` \$`, denom(of)));
add(collect~(of, c, simplify));

but the first one seems cumbersome for such a trivial thing that should be handled by collect. It also does not factor out the e.g. 12*ln(c)-Pi^2. This seems to be a general behaviour

g:=a*x*(x+1);
collect(g,x) does not factor out the a as in a*(x^2+x).

With the second method I'm more or less happy, but I didn't manage to completely collect the c terms i.e. the n^{-1} term is still c*(c+1) and not c^2+c.

## simple random number construction...

Maple 2019

Hello, Probably there is a way to do this easily but I do not quickly find it within the help.

I want

rand(0..1)

to give a true! random number and not always the same number; otherwise it should be called

predefinedlist()

Seed is deprecated, not sure it would help though. So how do I go abouts?
