MaplePrimes Suggestions

Have a problem with MaplePrimes? Want to suggest a possible improvement to the site? Please post it here.

i noticed members use such tags in their post very rarely in mapleprimes

and i am confused whether ?

there is a list of special html tags that are supported in "HTML Source Editor" of mapleprimes

that are compatible with it ? or all tags described in html5 or html4 are compatible ?

i just tested a few of those tags and they work excellent ...

Comments to posts should also have the option to up vote.

Last week we added a new feature to MaplePrimes that provides the ability to sort the answers to a question by votes (default setting), or by date. Based on a few of your suggestions to that post, we have enhanced this feature today.

First, you now will notice that there are three options for sorting:

  • Sort by votes
  • Sort by date (oldest first)
  • Sort by date (newest first)

Consider a signal which is a real sine series, f(x)=2*sin(2*Pi*x) + 5*sin(2*Pi*6*x) + 9*sin(2*Pi*11*x).

Let F(w) be its Fourier transform. Answer F(w) is purely complex and expressed in terms of symbol Dirac.

Maple "plot" fails.

Plots of impulse trains like F(w)=sqrt(Pi)*I*(2*Dirac(w-Pi)+4*Dirac(w-4*Pi)) involve user intervention. Maple won't plot such expressions, because they are DISTRIBUTIONS (not FUNCTIONS).

Try plotting F(w) to see the engine's uninformative error message....

I made this new thread because I cannot make replies in the original thread.

The new option added to MaplePrimes about two hours ago----to show Answers by date----only shows the Answers in reverse chronologocal order. That's ridiculous! Even more so with the comments still being in forward chronological order. The reason that people have requested date order so vehemently is to preserve the continuity of conversation. With the reverse chronological order, the continuity is worse than before.

Earlier this afternoon we made an update to MaplePrimes to introduce some new features and to squash a few bugs.

The primary purpose of the update was to improve the context around how replies and answers are entered on MaplePrimes. The most significant change you will notice here is that submission/edit boxes now appear inline  under the specific message you are replying to, instead of at the bottom of each page.

Other improvements include:

Dear friends,

I have recently been calculating a sum from this link.

The problem here is to calculate the sum sum_{n>=1} (-1)^(n+1)/(n^2+a) with a some positive real number. You probably all agree that it is preferable to express it using elementary functions from basic calculus as opposed to the Gamma, Zeta and Digamma...

I just posted and then clicked 'logout' (upper right on the page).

After going back I recognize I am still logged in. Strange. Does
the page not clear the data (= cookies?) for that demand?

Hello all,

I recently helped someone with a contour integration problem, you may find my calculation at the following link. It occurred to me to test this integral with Maple and Mathematica.

For example,

int(1/x^(1/3)/(x^2+2*x*cos(Pi/7)+1), x=0..infinity);

produces an unusable output from Mathematica. Maple is a little better,...

Stop ordering posts by votes! ... For two reasons.

1 - Someone who comes up with the idea first should be ordered as such.

2 - Conversations can get mixed up

**edit change** I have changed the title from Stop ordering posts by votes to Mapleprimes wish list. 

A lot of spam coming in is from the same users.  It seems automated.  These are some repeating offenders

Hello. It World be greate if you could ad a maple file viewer to the Maple Player for the IPad and similar products. It is a greate tool when you are on the move and do not have you pc with you to do the calculations on. I use Maple a lot at my studies at the university of southern denmark, at when I talk to my study mates about a problem, it would be greate to be able to open maple files from you pc on the ipad. I save my documents to my Dropbox, so I always have then nearby....

Saying 'logout' through the menu bar does not log me out.

I am still logged in (even after leaving the pages).

And I guess, that the according cookie is not properly cleared.
But it should.
