"A map that tried to pin down a sheep trail was just credible,

but it was an optimistic map that tried to fix a the path made by the wind,

or a path made across the grass by the shadow of flying birds."

## simplification example...

Maple 15

How can I most succinctly and straightforwardly get Maple to simplify f below to g below?

```> f:=(6*x^2-6*x+6)^(1/2)*(2*x^2-2*x+2)^(1/2);

(1/2)                 (1/2)
/   2          \      /   2          \
\6 x  - 6 x + 6/      \2 x  - 2 x + 2/

> g:=simplify(f) assuming x::real;

(1/2) / 2        \
2 3      \x  - x + 1/

> simplify(g-f...```

## Missing Optimization methods comparison...

Maple

Does anyone know of a working link to the worksheet for this Application Center item?

This is entitled, "Comparison of Multivariate Optimization Methods" and according to the html version it was authored by Sergey Moiseev (who I believe uses the handle mois here on Mapleprimes).

The link to the .mw is broken at that App Center page. And...

## MapleCloud has an open API?...

Maple

What's the API for the MapleCloud?

Would it be possible to upload/download/otherwise-talk to the MapleCloud without using the Standard GUI's palette? If so, how? In particular, could it be done using the Sockets package?

## spacecurve...

In 13.01 (Linux) I see this.

```> # works ok
> plots:-spacecurve([sin(t),t,1],t=0..1,thickness=5);

> # expect missing argument error, but loses kernel connection
> plots:-spacecurve([sin(t),t,1],thickness=5);
```

Is it the same in 13.02, and on Windows, can anyone say?

## corporate news article...

There is some interesting news in the Business section of today's Kitchener-Waterloo Record newspaper.

Cross-referencing, there is a press release.
