## I'm sorry...

I didn't mean to be rude to anyone. It's just a very packed afternoon in a very bad day. Sorry if anyone felt offended.

## further clarification...

I have here a little piece of my code which illustrates the problem. I probably forgot to say that f(z,r) will be used as a dummy function, which will be specified later in the program... > restart > assume(r, real) > assume(z, real) assume(delta, real) > F := f(r, z) >assume(F, real) >G := F exp(-I delta z) > print(); f(r, z) exp(-I delta z) >conjugate(G) > print(); _______________________ f(r, z) exp(-I delta z) >

## maybe I didn't explain it well.....

I m doing some symbolic calculation, so I have no explicit form for f(r,z), this means that I have no way of telling Maple that I want F:=f(r,z) to be real... As a matter of fact, in the following step I'm multiplying F:=f(r,z) by a complex exponential: G:=F*exp(-I*delta*x) then, I take the complex conjugate. At this point the program takes the complex conjugate of F, even if F should be real...(unless there is a way to spevify the f(x,y) must be REAL)!!! THANK YOU FOR REPLYING!!!!!

## DO NOT IGNORE...

PLEASE, IM REALLY STUCK WITH THIS..I KNOW IT'S STUPID BUT... YOUR HELP HERE IS REALLY NEEDED AND APPRECIATED ..PLEASE DO NOT IGNORE THE POST ABOVE...!!! HAVE PITY!!!
