## Does Maple offer facilities to devise a ...

Maple

Hi everybody,

I face the following problem :
I develop a Maple simulation code with its own maplets-based interface, and I would like to draw up an "execution report" that presents many informations in a smart and synthetic way :

1. a summary of the data the user provided through the interface (numerical values, files, ...)
2. the results of some preliminary operations (ie. the construction of the equations to solve)
3. some plots of the numerical solution (typically of an ode system)

This execution report should mix texts, plots, charts, ...
At least, I would like the report to be written in LaTeX.

I use to use the software R which provides some facilities to build reports of this kind  (packages knitr or Sweave for those who would know) , and I am wondering if there exists something comparable in Maple ?
Could the DocumentTools package (I know by name only) help me ?

More generally, if you were faced with such a problem, how would you deal with it?

As always any suggestion or advice will be greatly appreciated

## I'd like to have some advice to solve a ...

Maple

Hi everybody,

I have to solve a system  of 3 equations in 3 unknowns.
One equation is linear while the others are not because of some  sinh(cste*unknown) term.
More of this the unknowns must verify some constraints of inequality type (but always very simple ; for instance “unknown <= value”).

solve fails because of the sinh terms
fsolve fails due to the inequalities

What Maple procedure do you advise me to use to solve this system ?
(at this stage I think advices could be sufficient ; if I keep coming up against the problem I will submit you a more detailed question)

## How to prove a quadratic expression is p...

Maple 2016

Hi everybody,

Here is a very simple question :
I have two strictly positive reals r and s and the expression
a := r^2 – r*s + s^2
Obviously a is strictly positive too

But I’m not capable to prove this with Maple (2016, Windows 7), even after having declared r and s both positive which, I thought, would have prevent Maple to consider them as potentially complex.
I failed in using "is", "coulditbe", "use RealDomain ..." and so on

Totally distressed I tried to do something simpler ... which ultimately appeared still more upsetting

restart:
assume(r, ‘positive’):
coulditbe(r, ‘complex’) ;    # the answer is (surprising ?) true

I'm probably doing some mistake bigger than I but I don't find it !

Could you be compassionate enough to enlight me !!!

## How to color a copy of a Graph without a...

Maple 2015

Hi,

This question concerns the package GraphTheory
( Maple 2015 on a Windows 7 PC )

Let G1 be some graph and V a list of vertices in G1
The default colors DrawGraph uses for the vertices is yellow

I define the graph G2 this way :
G2 := copy(G1):
HighlightVertex(G2, V, red);
DrawGraph(G2);
Obviously the result is a graph where vertices in V are red while the remaining ones are still yellow

Question 1 :  Why does the command DrawGraph(G1) returns exactly the same picture ?
I have thought that defining G2 as a copy of G1 would have preserved the default colouring of the vertices.
Note that the same undesired (at least for me) thing occurs with the  HighlightEdges command.

Question 2 : Is it possible to retrieve the original colouring of G1 without using HighlightVertex(G1, V, yellow)  ?

## How to avoid the "no solution found" war...

Maple 2015

Morning all,

I repeatedly solve (command solve) a collection of systems of inequalies. Some of them can have no solution, but I am able to check if a solution has been found or not, and then take some decision about the system in question.

I have placed a few print commands at different critical locations within the loop where those systems are constructed and possibly solved.
Every time solve fails finding a solution it returns me a "no solution found" warning.
In order to keep my printings readable, could it be possible to avoid those warnings ?
Is there some "try & catch" like mechanism to manage warnings ?
