## You probably should say what...

You probably should say what OS you are using and what Maple interface you are talking about. --- G A Edgar

## I have some old versions of...

I have some old versions of Maple installed (along with the current version). Sometimes I use them when trying to answer someone's question about Maple...Especially if the problem does not occur in Maple 13. --- G A Edgar

## That's zero inside the...

That's zero inside the signum, so it's doing infinity times zero... Of course THAT is undefined. Interesting. --- G A Edgar

## I guess we have...

I guess we have understanding. According to Maple, z and conjugate(z) are NOT two independent variables, otherwise this result would be zero: > diff(conjugate(z),z); -conjugate(z)/z+2*abs(1, z)/signum(z) --- G A Edgar

## It's really what I said...

It's really what I said before. Mathematicians write differentiation with respect to z bar when they think of a function of two independent variables called z and z bar. This is not the same thing as physicists mean when they do differentiation with respect to a function of z. --- G A Edgar

## best job...

Look here... http://online.wsj.com/article/SB123119236117055127.html Best and worst jobs. the best is... mathematiclan. The worst is... lumberjack. --- G A Edgar

## yes and no...

In fact, replacing abs(x) with sqrt(x^2) is **wrong** for complex x, so should not be done. int(sqrt(x^2),x) evaluated to x^2/s is **right** (subject to choice of branch) for complex x. --- G A Edgar

## Maple 13...

Maple 13 on Mac has the problem, too. --- G A Edgar

## yes...

I tried it in Maple 12 and got the loss of kernel connection. This error (in my experience) normally means Maple has used all possible memory, but that does not seem to be the case here. Note that c(3/2) works fine. The error can be obtained using this: solve(-3.75+x^1.333333333); Also note "fsolve" works fine, but not "solve". --- G A Edgar

## 2D input...

I guess this is a problem of the mysterious 2D input ... I tried, but failed, to get the same problem in 1D input. I got the same result, the one you want to get, using each of these: Rx R_x R[x] Since I never use 2D input, someone else will have to diagnose the problem... --- G A Edgar

## probably...

probably you need to hire someone who knows both languages to do the translation --- G A Edgar

## backslash...

So in ASCII, the backslash character \ has octal code 134 that is what you are seeing .... so it seems that \n isn't a code for a newline ... --- G A Edgar
