Special characters like æ,ø,å are causing some troubles when used in Maple Code attachments in workbooks.

I've managed to get around the problem by using HTML equivalents in the first run, but then this will cause problems when exporting the same strings to Excel.

Funnily this problem just arises in Workbooks, not when using the same code in a code edit region.

I have two functions u(x,y,t) and p(x,y,t).

I want to find the total derivative of D_x( p*u) (where * is the multiplication)

where D_x is as given in the attached file formula_of_D_x.pdf 

Also, it is given in the following link but it's not clear to me. I think it somehow resembles my query, but not clear about the syntax so that I should implement it on mine.

Often times I run into calculations like these:

Where d denotes the exterior derivative. Now I know that it is possible to compute the exterior derivative of a function (using the DifferentialGeometry package). But is there a way to compute and simplify them with tensor products as above?

What kind of options do I have regarding printing a document to pdf?

Even though the document I have looks nice on the screen, it doesn't fit to a A4 pdf page.

Are there any scaling options, or fit to page anywhere which I did miss?

Any idea of how to import necessary libraries for use in Maple Player?

Dear all,

I have 3 ODE's that I solved with the use of a for loop that cycles through different IC's. The purpose of this is so that I can compare the solutions with different IC's. I have three dependent variables (h1(z), h2(z), h3(z)), and one independent variable (z). The loop that I created looks like this:

_Omega_r := 10^(-5);
n := 10;
for i from 0 to n do:
    h10[i] := 1-0.16666667e-1*i;
    h20[i] := 1-(.7*0.16666667e-1)*i;
    h30[i]:= 3-h10[i]-h20[i];
    ans := dsolve([eq2, eq3, eq4, h1(0) = h10[i], h2(0) = h20[i], h3(0) = h30[i]], {h1(z), h2(z), h3(z)}, numeric, output = listprocedure);
    h1_sol[i] := rhs(ans[2]);
    h2_sol[i] := rhs(ans[3]);
    h3_sol[i] := rhs(ans[4]);
end do

Here, h10[i], h20[i] and h30[i] are my initial conditions. I use h1_sol[i], h2_sol[i] and h3_sol[i] to make plots of the solutions:

I make two different types of plots - one type has only the different solutions for h1(z) with all initial conditions:

h1plot := plot([seq(h1_sol[i](z), i = 0 .. 10)], legend = [h1(0) = h10[0], h1(0) = h10[1], h1(0) = h10[2], h1(0) = h10[3], h1(0) = h10[4], h1(0) = h10[5], h1(0) = h10[6], h1(0) = h10[7], h1(0) = h10[8], h1(0) = h10[9], h1(0) = h10[10]], title = "z versus h1(z) for different initial conditions", labels = ["z", "h1(z)"]);

And the other uses one set of initial conditions, but all three h1(z), h2(z), h3(z):

allplot1 := plot([seq(h1_sol[i](z), i = 2), seq(h2_sol[i](z), i = 2), seq(h3_sol[i](z), i = 2)], title = [typeset(h(z), " versus ", z, " (case 2)")], labels = [z, h(z)], legend = [typeset(h[1](z), " with ", h1__0 = h10[2]), typeset(h[2](z), " with ", h2__0 = h20[2]), typeset(h[3](z), " with ", h3__0 = h30[2])]);

Now, all of this works wonderfully. I managed to do everything I wanted. Except that I have been struggling figuring out how to extract the data from the plots into a .dat file into different columns. With the code that I did write, if I use it on the first plot, I end up getting 2 columns, one for z and one for h1(z) (for example), but there should be 11 columns (one for z and 10 for h1(z) with different initial conditions). How would I go about to extract the data of multiple plots into one .dat (or .xls, or .csv or whatever) file? What I did:

write := proc (plotname, filename)
    local fd; fd := fopen(filename, WRITE, TEXT);
    writedata(fd, convert(op([1, 1], plotname), matrix));

write(h1plot, `zvsh1GR.dat`)

Alternatively, if there is a way to use the solution in Maple directly without extracting first (I need to use the solutions for h1(z), h2(z), h3(z) to plot different equations that are dependent on these variables), that would be great. For example, I would like to use these three variables in an equation that uses both the derivatives of all three the variables and the variables themselves as is. For example:

q (z)= (diff(h1(z),z)+diff(h2(z),z)+diff(h3(z),z))/(h1(z)+h2(z)+h3(z))

And then I want to plot q(z) vs z.

I'm sorry if this is a lengthy question (or one with a simple solution) - I am still learning Maple.

My Maple file:

Maple worksheet: Solving_GR_f(R)

Is possible to operate Grid Computing Toolbox together with Maple on one local multicore machine?

If yes, what is the proper instalation/configuration procedure on Windows or Linux?

I want to write two different numbered lists in the same document like:

  1. Item one list one
  2. Item two list one

And the second list:

  1. Item one list two
  2. Item two list two

The problem is that whenever I use the "Set the paragraph to be a numered list item" button, the item becomes a part of the same list as every other list item in the document. How can i separate two lists?

Why 3D .eps figures produced by Maple 2020 are often excessively large?

So, it´s a little heavy to the viewer and to compile to PDF.

  • How could we reduce the size without losing any quality? 

helle to your all


as i can see there are functions to show steps of a calculation

such as ExpandSteps() and ShowSolution()

but would it not be possible to use these or some other function to show steps of the function called isolate()

it should be trivial since most online calculators are able to do this. and so does maple in the back - we just don't see the steps only the result


thanks regards mikkel



I'm having some difficulty solving a set of equations. For example

dn/dt = Const*(phi - n)

ds/dt= Const*(phi-n)

s = d2 phi/dx2 + d2 phi/dy2

How do you solve a system like this? It is 2 equations with 2 unknowns, but it is the s variable that is evolved, i.e. ds/dt, instead of phi.

Anyone know of some code that could do this? (periodic boundary conditions)

Better yet, how do you formulate this as a regular ODE for n and phi?


Dear Users!

Hope everyone fine here. I have following three quires that need to be fix.

1. I want to collocate Vector IntXYZ1 and IntXYZ2 present in file Q1 in such a way that the first M1M2 + 2(M3-1)M2 + 2(M3-1)(M1-2) rows are zero and other rows are collocated at x=(i-1)/(M1-1), y=(j-1)/(M2-1), t=(k-1)/(M3-1) for i = 2,3,…,M1-1, j = 2,3,…,M2-1, k = 2,3,…,M3 as given as XX (of order 27 by 27 with first 25 rows are zero) for M1=M2=M3=3


2. Next, in file Q2 we have a Vector b with some entries which are actually the values of chi[1, 1, 1], chi[1, 1, 2],...,chi[2, 2, 2] in such a following way

(Vector(8, {(1) = chi[1, 1, 1], (2) = chi[1, 1, 2], (3) = chi[1, 2, 1], (4) = chi[1, 2, 2], (5) = chi[2, 1, 1], (6) = chi[2, 1, 2], (7) = chi[2, 2, 1], (8) = chi[2, 2, 2]})) = (Matrix(8, 1, {(1, 1) = 0, (2, 1) = 0, (3, 1) = 0, (4, 1) = 0, (5, 1) = 1.000000000, (6, 1) = 1.000000000, (7, 1) = 1.000000000, (8, 1) = .3678794412}))

Matrix B given in file Q2 have entires which are the linear cobiniation of chi[1, 1, 1], chi[1, 1, 2],...,chi[2, 2, 2]. I want to evaluate matrix B at the values of chi[1, 1, 1], chi[1, 1, 2],...,chi[2, 2, 2] which are obtained in vector b.

3. I want to recall a vector B in file Q3 at highlighted portion and B matrix is present in Q4. Which is the command to recall or export a matrix which contain in some other file like in file Q4.

I shall be very grateful for your support.

 Let d an integer ">=5 " and 
                    "lambda  in ]-(1)/(2),-(1)/(d+1)[. "
> gamma[s+1,d]=((s+1)[d]((d+1)lambda+s))/(2^(d+1)(lambda+s)[d+1]).;
We need to show that
> gamma[s+1,d]>=-(1)/(2^(s+1)),;
> s=1,...,[(d+1)/(2)].;
 a[k] designates the pochhammer symbol.

Thanks a lot 

If you could assist; I am trying to set something like an asymptote or upper limit such that my plot below approaches asymptotically (below y =1 ) from negative infinity:


command completion (when hitting the ESC key) in Maple could be made more useful. It does not seem to support type names for example.

What shows up on the command completion window are  possible commands that start with that partial text.

It does not list other known names by Maple, such as type names and other options.

This makes it hard to use in many places, where one have to remember type names exactly instead of the system helping them by listing all possible type names that start with that string.

Is there a way around this? Will Maple next version support smarter and more complete command completion menu?
