pick say x=-1, then your function becomes   (-1)^(1/3). But -1=exp(I*Pi). Hence (-1)^(1/3) is the same as exp(I*Pi/3). Using Euler's formula, this is the same as  cos(Pi/3)+I*sin(Pi/3) = 0.5 + 0.8660254037*I   which is complex. 

That is why Maple does not plot for for negative x. 

may ways to do this. One is to use zip. But they have to be lists not sets. You can convert them

s1:=[a, b, c];
s2:=[a, b, d];

         2*a + 2*b + c + d

Or use shorthand


      2*a + 2*b + c + d

Under Options->General. Uncheck it


try expanding it first so both sides have same structure?    evalb(a-a*b=expand(a*(1-b)))  now gives true.

Help says

The evalb command does not simplify expressions. It may return false for a relation that is true. In such a case, apply a simplification to the relation before using evalb.

In this case simplify() did not make it give true.

or you could just use is(a-a*b=a*(1-b)) gives true without the need to expand or simplify.

You can try adding some assumptions? for example





simplify(expr) assuming x::real,y::real


simplify(expr) assuming x::real,y::real,y>0

This works for me. 


f := 9*x^3 - 7*x^2*y + 8*x*y^2 - 6*y^3 + 3*x^2 - 3*x*y + 4*y^2 - 3*x + 9*y - 7;
fy:= diff(f,y);

ctpts:= solve({fx=0,fy=0},{x,y});


{x = 0.04295586238 + 0.2689937615*I, y = 0.9924517251 + 0.1221355623*I}, {x = -0.1196978953, y = -0.5678259706}, {x = -0.2777747003, y = -0.6265224321}, {x = 0.04295586238 - 0.2689937615*I, y = 0.9924517251 - 0.1221355623*I}


I do not know how to add rules to the build in simplify command in Maple (It is possible to do this in Mathematica easily). May there is a way to do it in Maple in order to teach it a new "rule".  The standard simplify(expr,ln) did not do it.

For now you can do

expr:=(ln(-z*I + b) - ln(z*I + b));

I calculated 6 critical points :how to show them in the plot? 

cp:=  solve( {diff(f(x,y),x)=0,diff(f(x,y),y)=0}, {x,y});
cp:=  evalf(allvalues(cp));
pts:= map(X->eval([x,y],X),[cp]);


Using the view point used by others, we get

plots:-display([plot3d(f(x,y),x=-2..2,y=-2..2, view=-6..6),plots:-pointplot3d(pts,'color'='red','symbol'='solidcircle','symbolsize'=15)])

How to make table out of this list.CriticalPoints. for easy reading.?



would it not be better to just use collect? Then the result is automatically sorted by L[n], but it is also collected, which is easier to read also.

result:= expand(((673*L[13] - 485*L[14] - 176*L[15])*h^2 - 90*(L[13] - (13*L[14])/15 - (2*L[14])/15)*x*h)/(12*h^3));


Alternatively, a way to factorize 6*x^2+a*x-10 into (a+6*x)*x-10 could do the trick.


I am not sure if is possible to write Q3 = gamma*Q1 + (1-gamma)*Q2 

Maple says it is not possible. You can try simplify with side relations


Q3 := 1/(v)*(    v*pi-  (   (1-alpha*gamma) *pi * r[0]  - (1-pi)*B*alpha  + (gamma*pi + (1-pi)*h)    )   );
eqs:={ 1/v *(  v*pi    -  (   h - (1-pi)*B   )      )=Q2,1/v*(   v*pi     - (   pi*r[0]+ (1-pi)*h  )   )=Q1};


I have not used this command before myself in Maple, but may this is what you want

plots:-conformal(exp(2*z), z=0..1+I);

may be you can use the definition of concave function. From Wiki

 differentiable function f is (strictly) concave on an interval if and only if its derivative function f ′ is (strictly) monotonically decreasing on that interval, that is, a concave function has a non-increasing (decreasing) slope.[3][4]

So just need one counter example. This is your g(x) function which is increasing and concave function g:=x-exp(-x). 

If you plot the derivative of   (2*x+5)*g(x), you will see is not concave.


Why would you load LinearAlgebra and then at same time make call to linalg:- ?

    Important: The linalg package has been deprecated. Use the superseding packages, LinearAlgebra

if you remove that then it works. It might have to do with how linalg works. I do dot know for sure, but this works.

To multiply these matrices/vectors, just use the dot. So intead of what you had

          linalg:-multiply(Ts_sksul, XCin)

you can just do





diff(x^n,x) does not equal n*x^(n-1), but rather 0 if n=1

you probably meant rather 1, and not rather 0..

This seems like a bug to me

it is not a bug. all CAS systems work on a general expressions, not specific values. 




To get derivative for specific you need to give specific value for n.
