## Combining Text and Math...

Maple

restart;
The integral int(x, x);
Error, missing operator or `;`

So from this

https://www.maplesoft.com/support/help/maple/view.aspx?path=MaplePortal%2FTutorial2#bkmrk1

I tried to switch between both modes, but I get the error above. Why does it not work? Do I need to consider something else? I'm switching with F5. The text is red and math is 2d math black.

Also the [CTRL]+[=] doesn't work in this german version, since I would need to press

[CTRL]+[SHIFT]+[=] which doesn't work.

## Using series/asympt for RootOf...

Maple 2015

Hello,

How do I tell maple which branch to choose when calculating an asymptotic series of a RootOf expression. e.g.

restart;

sol:=RootOf((8*n-8)*_Z^6+(n^4+36*n^2-68*n+56)*_Z^5+(n^5+10*n^4+80*n^3-200*n^2+224*n-152)*_Z^4+(n^6+28*n^5+69*n^4-268*n^3+468*n^2-356*n+200)*_Z^3+(3*n^7+32*n^6+7*n^5-204*n^4+380*n^3-544*n^2+272*n-128)*_Z^2+(3*n^8+14*n^7-20*n^6-32*n^5+252*n^4-240*n^3+304*n^2-80*n+32)*_Z-n^9-12*n^8-44*n^7-40*n^6-4*n^5-128*n^4+48*n^3-64*n^2);

asympt(sol,n,2);

Now the series contains RootOf(_Z^6-_Z^5) which occurs in the denominator to order 1/n and thus blows up if 0 is chosen. I know that the solution must be greater zero and smaller than n/2.

## simplification of arguments...

Maple 2018

If I have an expression like this

f:=ln((1-x)^2*(x+1)^2/((-I*x-I+sqrt(-x^2+1))^2*(I*x+I+sqrt(-x^2+1))^2))

maple has trouble to simplify the argument.

In particular is it possible to apply expand() only to the denominator?

This is meant in general, so if I have many terms with expressions like this (possibly of products with other functions in each term), I want this simplification to be done termwise for the arguments of the functions.

Expanding the fraction doesn't work as in frontend(expand, [f]).

## polylog vs. dilog...

Maple 2018

This is not a problem per se, but more to understand the background.

restart;

f := polylog(2, -x);

int(f/(x+1), x);

convert(f, dilog);

int(%/(x+1), x)

The integration of the polylog maple is not capable of doing, but after converting to dilog it finds an anti derivative.

That leads to the question, why is dilog as a separate to polylog(2,*) implemented anyway? Why couldn't it all be done with the more general polylog function?

I'm also wondering why maple has difficulties to integrate

int(dilog(x+1)/(x+a),x)

for general a.

## combine/polylog error...

Maple 2018

Hello,

I have this error I'm not sure how to solve

restart;

`assuming`([simplify(int(ln(1+x)^3/(x+a), x = 0 .. 1))], [a > 0]);

combine(expand((eval(%, a = I)+eval(%, a = -I))*(1/2)))

What is the precise problem here?
