Im a tax student and tring to figure out Maple. I plotted the following graph with the code:

implicitplot([Vth = Vps, V1 = 25000, V1 = 50000, V1 = 75000, V1 = 100000], E = 0 .. 1000000, T = 0 .. 15, color = [black], labels = ["E in (EUR)", "T (in Jahren)"], labelfont = [times, bold, 12], view = [0 .. 1000000, 0 .. 15])

I would like to color the intermediate areas and attach a legend. A colleague has plotted this for me, but unfortunately has not provided me with the source code and has now lost the file. Can someone help me to re-plot the last shown chart?

Thanks so so much in advance!! Best regards Rebekka


Im a tax student trying to use Maple for my studies. I plotted two surfaces in a 3D coordinate system, the surfaces intersect = indifference area.

The current formula is like this:

plot3d([Vth/E, Vps/E], E = 0 .. 1000000, T = 0 .. 15, labels = ["E", "T", ""], color = [gray, white], labels = ["E (in EUR)", "T (in Jahren)", ""], labelfont = [times, bold, 12])
It looks like this:

I would like to draw in the same graph, the indifference area (Vth/E = Vth/E), it looks like this:

A colleague has plotted this for me, but unfortunately has not provided me with the source code and has now lost the file. Can someone help me to re-plot the last shown chart?

Thanks a lot in advance!!


I want to explore multivariable function approximations using truncated Taylor series.

Mathematically, for a function f(x,y) and using operator notation for the partial derivatives, where e.g. Dx2 f(x,y) denotes the second partial derivative of f wrt evaluated at (x,y), we can write the N'th order truncated Taylor series for f around (x0,y0) as

I want to make a Maple-function for this expression, and try

P := (x,y,x0,y0,N) -> sum(1/factorial(n)*sum(binomial(n,k)*
D[1$(n-k), 2$k](f)(x0,y0)*(x-x0)^(n-k)*(y-y0)^k, k=0..n), n=0..N):

where f(x,y) is a previosly defined Maple-function.

My P function fails, and the reason why it fails is related to the "D" operator in the "sum".

Please take a look at the following code-snippet:

Output (9) is as expected, but output (8) is not !!
I would expect output (8) to be equal to the sum of output (9), i.e. to be equal to (-1/2).

Please illuminate why I don't get the sum of the sequence (9) as my output (8).

I can get a group like this:

g := SmallGroup(48, 8)

But I want to get the PermutationGroup form like PermutationGroup({[[...]], [[...], [...]]}). Can we change it into this form?

As we know, since the order about the element Perm([[1, 2], [3, 4, 5]]) of S5 is 6. Then  the C6 is a subgroup of S5, but why IsSubgroup(CyclicGroup(6), SymmetricGroup(5)) return false? Is it a bug?

Of course, we know the A5 of 60 order is an unsolvable group, but as the wiki here, There are also some solvable groups in the same 60 order. Similarly, although map(IsSolubleNumber, [60, 120, 168, 180]) will give false, there are some solvable groups in orders 60, 120, order 168, and order 180. But how to find these corresponding solvable polynomials by maple? I tried to generate them using random polynomials like this:

    do poly := randpoly(x, degree = rand(6 .. 8)()); until irreduc(poly);
    G := GaloisGroup(poly, x);
until IsSoluble(G) and is(GroupOrder(G) in {60, 120, 168, 180});
galois(poly, x);

But I didn't get any result even after one night..

Anyone experience a delay in typing as the screen fills with text/math etc.?

I'm using Maple 2021 and as the space is filled typing slows. I can finish typing and watch the last 4 keys enter on the screen.

Since approximately a week ago, probably after some Ubuntu update, the xmaple 2021.2 interface started to crash after some simple commands, without any error message or log. I tried to run with java (open-jdk) 11 and 8, and I had the same problem. I still have an old 2017.3 version, and it works perfectly. The problem only affects the new Maple release. 

Is there some bug report? What can I do?

I'm a newbie to maple, I want to get a group that meeting the criteria with this code:

G := SymmetricGroup(6);


H := Subgroup({RandomElement(G),RandomElement(G)}, G);

C := Core(H, G);

until is(GroupOrder(C) <> 1) and is(GroupOrder(C) <> GroupOrder(H));

But it's seem I cannot construct subgroup. so I adjust it into:

G := SymmetricGroup(6);


H := Subgroup({[[rand(1 .. 6)]], [[rand(1 .. 6), rand(1 .. 6)], [rand(1 .. 6), rand(1 .. 6)]]}, G);

C := Core(H, G);

until is(GroupOrder(C) <> 1) and is(GroupOrder(C) <> GroupOrder(H));

However, it is clear that random numbers do not always satisfy the rules of permutation. So how can I use the loop to generate a random subgroup that satisfies the condition?

How to adapt this program C to Maple ? Thank you.

I'd like to sort variables which are non-commutative and obey certain commuting rules in a preferred order. Here is a minimal example


Setup(mathematicalnotation = true):Setup(noncommutativeprefix = {q, w}, algebrarule = {%Commutator(q, w) = A})

If I want to rewrite q*w as A+w*q since I prefer the order w>q, what should I do? I tried sort(Simplify(q*w, algebrarules), [w, q]) but it doesn't work.

Thank you in advance.

The long form of ScientificConstants[GetValue] is not working in at least Maple 2021 and Maple 2022



This is causing issues for MapleFlow, not being able to call on a constant. 

**edit some of the long forms work - specifically the GetValue does not.  I modified the title to reflect that.**

G := GaloisGroup(x^5 + 20*x + 32, x);

I just can get a result like:

GroupTheory:-GaloisGroup(x^5 + 20*x + 32, x)

But how do I know exactly what group it is? Actually I know the galois group is D5, But can we use maple to get this information?

ds := DerivedSeries(PermutationGroup({[[2, 3, 5, 4]], [[1, 2, 3, 4, 5]]}))

will get a series group like:

How to get the group by the red line point out? Then I can use GroupOrder to get the order of it. I note GroupOrder[ds[2]] don't work

I have a student who then she uses tools/assistent/import data and then the file then Maple claims the Excel file is empty? She uses Maple 2021.2. File works on other my and other student computers.
