Maple 2021.
I expect after exporting to pdf view of page with plot like on fig. 1.

It means with font=[TIMES, ROMAN, 12] as in maine text.
But I obtaned this view of page on pdf (fig. 2) with smaller font-size.

In previouse versions there are no the problem like this.
Dear community, how to fix this annoying inconvenience?

 fig. 1.  fig. 2.

Consider the following integral, shown below in this image.

Why does Maple provide erroneous results? Is there a bug in the software? I use Maple 2021.

Hi.  I am using the linux version of Maple.  I seem to experience more bombs in Maple/Linux vs MathCad/Windows.  The program just froze as I was entering text.  Just text.  It is not a disaster since I make very frequent saves.  But it is very annoying.  I was a heavy user of MathCad from about 2005 to 2019.  In the early days, it bombed a lot.  But I do not recall that it ever bombed when I was entering text.  Any suggestions?  Would there be a limition on the number of text characters?  Is it Linux?  Other than this problem, it is a great program.

eq := a*x^3 + b*x^2 + c*x + d;
 s := x1 + x2 + x3 = -b/a;
 sp := x1*x2 + x1*x3 + x2*x3 = c/a;
 p := x1*x2*x3 = -d/a;
sol:=solve({eq, p, s, sp}, {x1, x2, x3},explicit);                       
 a := 1;
b := -5;
c := 6;
d := -1;

why is not successfull ?   Thank you.                 

I have a problem in plotting bellow function. actually because my main program is not working so I decided to do it in simple way. I found that my program in maple can't plot the function I introduced it as a procudure and is an implicit function. can you help me please?

>EQ := proc(x, t) local y, m, func;
                 m := 3;
                 func := m*x^2 + t*y^2 = 4;
          end proc;

>eq := EQ(x, 10);                              
                     eq := 3*x^2  + 10*y^2  = 4

>implicitplot(eq, x = -1 .. 1, y = 0 .. 2)
 Error, (in plots/implicitplot) invalid input: the following extra unknowns were found in the input expression: {y}


What is the [explict] relation between Maple's WeierstrassP and Weierstrass' P-function (e.g. ?

The worksheet here shows a couple of failed attempts at coaxing Maple to calculate the general solution of a pretty simple second order ODE.  I have also included the expected solution which I  have calculated by hand.  Perhaps I am missing a key trick.  Any ideas?

The ODE that I am actually interested in is significantly more complex. The one in the worksheet is a much simplified "bare bones" specimen that exhibits the issue that I am facing.

Attempt to solve with Heaviside


de := diff(u(x),x$2) = Heaviside(x - a)*u(x);

diff(diff(u(x), x), x) = Heaviside(x-a)*u(x)

dsolve fails:


u(x) = DESol({diff(diff(_Y(x), x), x)-Heaviside(x-a)*_Y(x)}, {_Y(x)})

Attempt to solve with piecewise


de := diff(u(x),x$2) = piecewise(x < a, 0, 1)*u(x);

de := diff(u(x), x, x) = piecewise(x < a, 0, 1)*u(x)


Error, (in dsolve) give the main variable as a second argument

dsolve(de, u(x));

Error, (in dsolve) give the main variable as a second argument



The solution is easy to calculate by hand

We just solve the (quite trivial) DE over the intervals x < a and x>a

separately, and patch the two solutions by requiring the continuity

of u(x) and diff(u(x), x) at x = a.  We get

sol := piecewise(x < a,
        x*c[1] + c[2],
        ((a*c[1] + c[1] + c[2])*exp(x))/(2*exp(a)) + ((a*c[1] - c[1] + c[2])*exp(-x))/(2*exp(-a)));

sol := piecewise(x < a, x*c[1]+c[2], (a*c[1]+c[1]+c[2])*exp(x)/(2*exp(a))+(a*c[1]-c[1]+c[2])*exp(-x)/(2*exp(-a)))


Vdot := proc (U, V)local i: add(U[i]*V[i], i = 1 .. 2) end proc:
dist := proc (M, N) sqrt(Vdot(expand(M-N), expand(M-N))) end proc:
ngon := n -> local i; [seq([cos(2*Pi*i/n), sin(2*Pi*i/n)], i = 1 .. n)]:
theta := (2*Pi)/5;
poly := [seq([cos(k*theta), sin(k*theta)], k = 1 .. 5), datatype = float];
Ii := [0, 1/2]:
H := [-1/4, 0]:
r := dist(Ii, H):
theta := (2*Pi)/5:
p1 := pointplot([seq([cos(k*theta), sin(k*theta)], k = 0 .. 5)], symbol = solidcircle, color = red, symbolsize = 10):
p2 := textplot([seq([cos(k*theta), sin(k*theta), cat("M", k)], k = 0 .. 4)], align = ["above", "right"]):
cir1 := circle([0, 0], 1/2, color = green,dashdot:):
cir2 := circle([-1/4, 0], r, color = black):
display([p1, p2, cir1, cir2, cir3,polygonplot(poly, thickness = 5, color = blue, transparency = 0.95)], axes = normal);
Why this error , Thank you.

 y = ax^3 + bx^2 + cx + d this is curve and is passing through the points (−1,−4),(1,0),(2,0),(3,−4).
1) Find the values of 𝑎,𝑏,𝑐 and 𝑑.
2) Plot the curve and the points given on the same axis.

I tried solving with derivative of the curve but i didnt find the exact values.

Why this error message ?
vartheta := (2*Pi)/17;
x || k := cos(k*theta);
y || k := sin(k*theta);
 xk := cos(k theta): yk := sin(k theta)
Points := pointplot([seq(M || k, k = 1 .. 16)], symbol = solidcircle, color = red, symbolsize = 10):
Error, (in plots:-pointplot) cannot convert data to an Array of datatype float[8]; Thank you for your answer..

Hello, I have a question.

The exercise consists of defining the image in relation to a chosen base. For example, I choose {x^4,x^3*y,x^2*y^2,x*y^3,y^4} as a base. Then I want to calculate T(x^4), T(x^3*y),T(x^2*y^2),T(x*y^3),T(y^4) through maple but but maple won't calculate it.

Do you know what I'm doing wrong?
Thanks in advance


Hi MaplePrimes. 

I have a cubic with some parameters that I would like to solve and recieve 3 real solutions, however I cannot seem to find a way to get that to work while using assumptions. I always recieve 1 real and two complex conjugate answers. I have tried assuming the discrimant to be greater then zero but nothing seems to be working, and I have looked through a few posts on here but I cant seem to find anything out. In particular solve({f,conditions},{variable}) 

If I solve with a known set of paramters(which i determine graphically) that gives three solutions everything works fine. Also if I solve the cubic generally and recieve the two complex solutions and one real then substitute the paramters in I get the same correct answers, so I am slightly baffled. If I have missed something simple my apologies. 

Any help would be greatly appreciated. File attached.

This is the default style about the group of DrawSubgroupLattice:


But I hope to label the DrawSubgroupLattice with the order of the subgroup but not the default index, is it possible? I can get the order with this code:

GroupOrder~(SubgroupLattice(SymmetricGroup(4), output = list))

But I don't know how to label it into the node...

How to plot F(R) for R=0..100 ?

Maple 2021 sheet attached.

restart; i := I``


E := 100



"Z(R):=((5+5 i)*(R-10 i))/((5+5 i)+(R-10 i))"

proc (R) options operator, arrow, function_assign; (5+5*i)*(R-10*i)/(5-5*i+R) end proc



proc (R) options operator, arrow, function_assign; E/Z(R) end proc



proc (R) options operator, arrow, function_assign; abs(I__R(R)) end proc






plot(F(R), R = 0 .. 100)

I don't know how to use the group produced with DirectProduct. such as

G := DirectProduct(QuaternionGroup(), CyclicGroup(3)):


IsNormal(CyclicGroup(2), DirectProduct(CyclicGroup(2), CyclicGroup(2)))

They all will get error information. It looks like the format is different, do I need to convert it somehow? Or is this a bug in maple?
