I use Maple worksheet mode (not document mode). When I have a long line of code, or when I display some Maple source code, and if the line do not fit the current window size, the line will wrap to the next line, and make it hard to read the code.

Is there a way to configure the setting do that Maple keeps long line on same line and then I can use the horizontal scroll bar if I want to see the full line. This way the code is easier to read for me.

I looked at OPTIONS->DISPLAY and no see no such option. I also looked at few other options.

Here is a screen shot of what  I mean. Line 165 is too long and it wraps for example

p1:=plot( x^3,x=-1..1,thickness=20,color=red):
p3:=display(rectangle([0.5, 1],[0.75,-1],color=green)):

display(p1,p2,p3,p4); # order = 4312


#  display(p3,p4,p1,p2); # order = 4312 (the same)

It seems that the rectangles are plotted first, in reversed order, and then the curves, in direct order.
Has someone an explanation?


    I'm doing a little experimenting on Maple and I want to display 3 Matrixes side by side with text explaining what is what. I have a for cycle in which 5 sets of 3 matrixes are made. And my goal is to display each of the 5 sets.
How would I go about doing that? I've tried the following:

display(Array(print(cat("Matriz A", k, AA[k])), print(cat("Matriz B", k, BB[k])), print(cat("Matriz D", k, DD[k]))))

But with this I end up getting this instead of what I want:

Any ideas are welcome, thanks in advance.


I want to have a display() function that plots a certain expression that I already have defined, but then I also want to include a variable number of pointplots into the same graph. I basically want the user to define a set of x and y coordinates into two different arrays in the start of the Maple Worksheet, then later down the worksheet, I want to plot these x,y coordinates as a pointplot, for each point.

But for example, if there are 5 points, I would define the pointplots as p1,p2,p3,p4,p5, which I already have a loop to do automatically depending on however many points that has been defined in the previous arrays. But when I want to plot these in a display() function, I have to write display(p1,p2,p3,p4,p5) individually, and I can't therefore seem to find a way to make it like display(p1,...,pn). I want the display to add more pointplots depending on how many points are defined in the arrays.

Can anyone help me? Sorry if it was difficult to understand, I can explain further if you didn't understand.

is there a possibility to display the partial derivative of f(x,y) wrt. y as

and second order / cross-partials accordingly?







I want to join two animations, but displayed subsequently, not simultaniously, As far as I got, I have:

plot2 := plots[animate](plot, [tau[1], z = -(1/2)*J .. (1/2)*J, color = red, legend = shear*stress], h = 1 .. 1+1/sqrt(3));
plot3 := plots[animate](plot, [tau[2], z = -(1/2)*h .. (1/2)*h, color = red, legend = shear*stress], h = 0 .. 1);
display([plot2, plot3], insequence = true);

my functions are difined as

tau[1] := h-1+(4/3)*(1/sqrt(3)-h+1)*sqrt(3)*(sqrt(3)*((1/4)*J^2-z^2)/(J^2*b))
tau[2] := (4/3)*sqrt(3)*((1/4)*h^2-z^2)/(h^2*b)

Both plots work individually, however, they have successive ranges. I wondered if I could make 1 plot, with an if statement wether to plot tau[1] or tau[2] depending on where the animation is in the range h. Does anyone know about a solution?

I'm displaying a series of point plots as an animation, and would like to update a displayed parameter as well.  I have a nested list L[t] where there's a set of points for each t, and for each t there's also a numerical value M that I'd like to display.  (In my real problem, L[t] is the number of particles in each of several states, and M is the rms deviation from am algebraic probability distribution.)  

The closest I've gotten (for a simple L and M) is the following, but it displays all of the M values in the legend at once:

with(plots); with(Statistics);

L := [[1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6], [2, 4, 6, 8, 10, 12]];

M := [1, 2];

display([seq(PointPlot(L[t], legend = M[t]), t = 1 .. 2)], insequence = true)


I don't need this to be in the legend.  Is there a way to display only the current value of M for each t?  Thanks very much.

I did not understand fully some of the notation used in 2D when I had the tools->options->Display->Output display->2D. So I thought if I change it to Maple notation. I might see what the symbol actually mean.  But when I did so, the result was even more confusing. Full of typesetting:-mrow commands and hard to read.

Here is the output in 2D

int(1/( (x-a)*(x-b)),x=-infinity..infinity  );

And here is the output when I switched to Maple output:

I was expecting to see "normal" looking Maple commands, which I can understand. Even the Latex is easier to read than the above mumple jumple code:


Does this mean one should forget about using Maple notation for output from now on? Why is it the output so complicated?

It seems as if arrays can only be displayed in 2-D form when the array dimensions start at 1.

Sometimes I want to construct arrays where an index starts from 0 (or other values). This is purely for my convenience in some problems. However such arrays do not display in 2-D form. Consider the displayed form of



Why doesn't the latter 'display' in 2-D form?

hello everybody, 

Is there some trick to bypass the limiited scope of the semicolon statement operator ?

More specifically, is it possible to force Maple to display (apart from the explicit use of the 'print' command) the results of the commands within two nested loops or within a loop and and a conditional statement ?

From the help page concerning statement operators it seems that it is truly impossible ...

"Note: This rule does not apply to statements enclosed in the body of another statement such as an if statement, loop, procedure, module, use statement, or try statement. In these cases, all enclosed statements must be separated by a semicolon or colon."

While not blocking it is a rather irritating limitation :-)



I'm new to the physics package - wondering if i can tweak it a bit to look like things i'm used to:


is there a way to make Christoffel symbols print as upper case gamma, instead of  'G'?

KroneckerDelta print as lower case delta, instead of 'd'?


can i make the Schwarzschild metric look like it does in Hartle, Carroll, and others:


-(1 - 2M/r)dt^2 + (1-2M/r)^-1 + r^2(dtheta^2 + sin(theta)^2 dphi^2)


i know about setting the signature in Setup.

i have tried the 'Coordinates' command, but when i give it X=[t,r,theta,phi] i always seem to get back



i am running maple 2016


many thanks,

I am having trouble to display a 3d and a 2d plots in a same figure. I tried with the display command but no luck.







To combine both I used display


I ends up with a structure error

The second question is how to plot f(x,y,z)=exp(x+y+z)?


I can draw a triangle using the geomtry package:

point(A, 0, 0), point(B, 2, 1), point(C, 2, 0); triangle(T, [A, B, C])
d := draw(T, axes = none, color = black); t := textplot([[.227, 0.60e-1, typeset(theta)], [1.1, 0, typeset(k__2)]])

The result is as below.


I would like to place the label k2 below the line but negative numbers do not work. I would like to put a label k1 to the right of
the opposite side but there is no room,  and finally I would like to put sqrt(k1^2+k2^2) above the hypotenuse slanted to be
parallel with the hypotenuse if possible.

I am using a stoiciometric matrix to generate a system of differential equations (this makes them easier to check). There are 13 chemical species and 16 reactions so I need to make and display vectors of length 13 and 16; as well as a 13x16 matrix.

When I make Vectors of this size they don't get displayed; I just get information about the vector (Fortran order etc) and this is the same for the matrix.

How do i make/edit/display Matrixes nd Vectors of this size?
