Is there a way to specify different colors for different output variables? For example, if x,y, and z appear in the entire document as variables, I want x to be red, y to be blue, and z to be green whenever an output is displayed.


will give me

which is indeed a solution of the PDE1

will give me

which is not a solution of the PDE2

However, both differential equations are equal, only the arguments are swapped around. Am I doing something wrong, or is this a bug?


I'm trying project a plane onto a surface. Is there a direct command to do this?. There is a command to project a surface onto a plane but i need the oposite. Thanks!

I would like to publish a technical paper about a renewable energy with you. I use Maple 2016. What i need?. Thanks!

plot3d of procedure Sievert correctly displays the constant curvature Sievert surface, but the procedure uses the deprecated command evalm.

What Maple 2016 statement(s) would create the same value of X in Sievert?

Sievert := proc (B)

local a, b, denom, m, X;

a := sinh(B)*u; b := cosh(B)*v;

denom := sinh(B)*((cosh(2*a)-cos(2*b))*cosh(2*B)+2+cosh(2*a)+cos(2*b));

m := cosh(B)*[sinh(a), sin(b)*cos(v), sin(b)*sin(v)]+[0, -cos(b)*sin(v), cos(b)*cos(v)];

X := evalm([u, 0, 0]-8*cosh(B)*cosh(a)*m/denom);

end proc:

plot3d(Sievert(.75), u = -2.5 .. 2.5, v = -10.5 .. 10.5, scaling = constrained, grid = [30, 100], style = patch, shading = xy, lightmodel = light3, orientation = [-3, 140], title = "Sievert's surface", titlefont = [Courier, bold, 14]);

How can I ask Maple to plot intersection of two implicitplot3d? It is explained how to draw the union in the Maple help by simply entering a list to combine plots, but I didn't see anything about intersection.

Maple 2016 worked fine on July 27.

On July 28 Microsoft insisted on applying a patch to Windows 10 (they called it a "significant upgrade"). After that, Maple 2016 no longer works - it loads, presents the default worksheet, allows you to load a previous worksheet, but as soon as you go to do anything, it quits.

Any suggestions, other than downgrading to the previous version of Windows 10, which I have already done, (and turned off MS windows update services)?

I have a problem with calculations. I have a worksheet and it calculated on some computer but on another i have an error after each equation. I dont have any idea why. When i click on error i see "Sorry, we do not have specific information about your error. " What can i doo with this?

Hello people in mapleprimes,

I want to single out omega^epsilon from and modify the rhs of the following expression
to the expression where the  the part without omega^epsilon and  another part of  omega^epsilon
are multiplied.

Y = -L*epsilon^epsilon*(1-epsilon)^(1-epsilon)*(-omega^(-1+epsilon)*k*theta+(1-theta)*omega^epsilon)/(1-epsilon-theta)

I am glad if you teach me this.



Hello people in maple primes,

I have an expression,


, which I want to put in order as 


Isn't there any ways to do the modification above?

 I am very glad if you answer to my question.


Trying to solve:

solve (arctan((2*x^2-1)/(2*x^2+1)) = 0, x);

The answer I get is the original function:



This example is from the Maple book by Keck, and he shows the Maple V answer as

1/2 sqrt(2) -1/2 sqrt(2)     


Suppose that I have an expression of the form  eq:=a*x^2+b*y^2+c*x*y, where x,y are real numbers, a>0, b<0, and c>0. Is there a relatively simple way to separate the positive, negative, and indeterminate terms from such an expression. In other words, I want to get  





Dear Community,

I try to solve the following very simple ODE symbolically with the ODE Analyzer assistant, yet Maple says "unble to obtain solution". :-/

If I try to slove it with dsolve, nothing happens. Is it really so difficult?

diff(p(h),h)=A/(B+C*p(h)), p(h0)=p1

A, B, C, h0 and p1 are constants. I use Maple 2016.

Tx in advance,

best egards


Hi everyone,

I have a strange problem with the LSSolve function. I get an error when specifying an optimality tolerance as an option for LSSolve function : "unexpected parameters: optimalitytolerance = 1/1000" (see attached). When I remove the option, the LSSolve function works and returns something. Why ?

This is a problem for me because in my program I automatically generate lots of equations and I need to solve them using the same parameters.  "list1" is an example of a list that makes LSSolve to return an error and therefore it makes my program stop.
Is it possible, when LSSolve returns an Error, to re-run the function without the optimalitytolerance option ?
