Hello!

I got the Quaternions package (version 2007) from MapleSoft:

Now I type in the following statements:

Hello!
How can I solve a linear equation which depends on two parameters (a,b) for which the assumption a^2 + b^2 = 1 shall hold.
This does not work by writing assume or assuming.
The problem has the following form:
tau := f(a,b) -> eigenvalues of a matrix U = U(a,b)
M := U - tau*Id = M(tau,a,b) = M(a,b)
find the kernel of M (eigenvectors of U) and simplify using a^2 + b^2 = 1.
I do not want to write down the exact matrix and hope that this information is enough. If not, I will take some time to write it down.

Hello!
I have the following PDE:
PDE := {
diff(alpha[1](u, v), u) = -I*exp(I*u)*beta[1](u, v),
diff(alpha[1](u, v), v) = -I*exp(-I*v)*beta[2](u, v),
diff(alpha[2](u, v), u) = I*exp(-I*u)*beta[2](u, v),
diff(alpha[2](u, v), v) = -I*exp(I*v)*beta[1](u, v),
diff(beta[1](u, v), u) = (1/8*(I*exp(-I*v)*alpha[2](u, v)+(2*I)*beta[1](u, v)+(2*I)*exp(-I*(v+u))*beta[2](u, v)))*(a-1)-(1/8*(-I*exp(-I*u)*alpha[1](u, v)-(2*I)*beta[1](u, v)+(2*I)*exp(-I*(v+u))*beta[2](u, v)))*b,
diff(beta[1](u, v), v) = (1/8*(I*exp(-I*u)*alpha[1](u, v)+(2*I)*beta[1](u, v)-(2*I)*exp(-I*(v+u))*beta[2](u, v)))*(a-1)-(1/8*(I*exp(-I*v)*alpha[2](u, v)+(2*I)*beta[1](u, v)+(2*I)*exp(-I*(v+u))*beta[2](u, v)))*b,

Hello!
I have a quasilinear first-order PDE system and Maple gives me only the trivial zero-solution after some seconds of computations. I know from theory that there are nontrivial solutions to the PDE, too. Can I get them somehow (from for example Maple)?
This is the PDE:
PDE := {diff(alpha[1](u, v), u) = -I*exp(I*u)*beta[1](u, v),
diff(alpha[1](u, v), v) = -I*exp(-I*v)*beta[2](u, v),
diff(alpha[2](u, v), u) = I*exp(-I*u)*beta[2](u, v),
diff(beta[2](u, v), v) = 1/4*I*exp(I*u)*alpha[2](u, v)+1/2*I*exp(I*(v+u))*beta[1](u, v)+1/2*I*(beta[2])(u, v),
diff(alpha[2](u, v), v) = -I*exp(I*v)*beta[1](u, v),

Hello!
I have some trouble with getting an explicit solution to a PDE:
f=f(u,v) in IC^4 (IC=complex numbers)
So i have a system of 8 equations, first order, integrable (i.e. solution exists by theory).
I'm getting the following, when calling pdsolve(PDE, fcns), where PDE is the set of the PDEs and fcns are the 4 complex functions f[i], i=1,2,3,4:
"Error, (in pdsolve/sys) duplicated elements (ranking)"
What could it be?
Thx,
yadaddy.
