It would be nice if Maple had a procedure which could turn a procedurelist into a listprocedure.
I use these words in the sense they are used in dsolve/numeric.
Thus by a procedurelist I mean a procedure returning lists (of numbers).
By a listprocedure I mean a list of procedures all having the same formal parameters and each returning one number.
Thus a `convert/listprocedure`should accept a procedurelist p as input and give as output the corresponding listprocedure [p1,p2, ... pN] where N is the number of elements in the output from p.

I tried making a `convert/listprocedure` myself and in doing so found that it was not totally trivial.
I had lots of problems but did end up with something that seems to work.

But my main point is that Maple ought to have some such facility either as described available to the user or by changing fsolve, complexplot or what have you, so that procedurelists are accepted.

I really very much like this package since it works just perfectly converting units and also supports CGS for people doing calculations in theoretical physics. I have just a suggestion concerning the formattig: As is explained in many physics books and also at the units standard website http://physics.nist.gov/, units shouldn't be placed in square brackets since these brackets are defined such that [m] = kg means: unit of m is kg. To write is m = 3 [kg] is a very common and unharmful mistake, also used very often when labelling axes in figures, e.g. m [kg] instead of the correct m/kg or m (kg). Another issue is that units shouldn't be printed italic but upright and any physics journal requests its authors to consider this rule. Again, this is not a "mistake" but on the other hand the Maple pretty-print output is already so nice that considering such rules would even make it perfect.

I am fully aware that omitting the brackets could be considered harmful if someone has an algebraic expression in front of the unit where symbols and units could be mixed. On the other hand having the usual interspace between unit and expression, the unit being upright and maybe even coloured (analogously to e.g. operators in the physics package) units and symbols could be easily held apart.

Bug in type(HFloat(-infinity),  pos_infinity). Negative infinity is incorrectly recognized as positive one:

s:=HFloat(-infinity);

type(s, neg_infinity);
type(s, pos_infinity); # bug

Greetings to all.

I have been using the numtheory package for quite some time now and it has helped me advance on a number of problems. Recently an issue came to my attention that I have known about for a long time but somehow never realized that it can be fixed. This is the fact that the numtheory package does not know about Dirichlet series, finite and infinite. Here are two links:

Greetings to all. I will keep this brief and to the point. I would like to point out a certain deficit in the integral transform package. I have recently been calculating some Mellin transforms at this link and the base functions are of the following type.

g := (p, q) -> 1/(x+p)/(x+(p*q-1)/q);

Now to see the deficit here are some Mellin transforms that...

I am pretty new to programming in Maple and trying to learn the language. One thing I needed was how to handle lists in a specific way. I have used many hours on this issue now and even asked questions in the Questions section. Other users helped me with clever tricks and I am grateful for that. What is left is however a feeling that one need to know a lot of rather Ad Hoc commands to accomplish your tasks. I looked for operations in the ListTools package, going through all...

the seperate physics package update is a great welcome.  i wonder if the scientific constants paxkage could incorporate the same idea.  i can see why the elements properties were put there but it might have made more sense in the physics package.  anyways, the element proprties are continually being updated so it would make sense for small updates to occurr.  any thoughts.

Dear Development Team,

obviously this is an acient topic, but I can only repeat the wish to be able to specify the size of a plot in a Document by adding a parameter like "size = [640, 480]" to the plot command or to plots[display]. This would allow to specify plot size and easily create plots having the same size withouzt having to manually drag the plot window.

I do not understand why this feature was never implemented, as this was asked very, very often and it should not be soooo difficult....

Dear Maple Developers,

Maple offers OpenMaple, which is nice and sufficient for driving Maple from extermal applications.

On the other hand Maple offers only very limited support for calling Java methods from maple (static emthods only, no objects).

So it is only possible with programming some extra static Java adapter classes to work with Java objects and their methods. This is a very cimbersome and clumsy workaround only.

Compared to applications...

Recently I was presented with some code that had a seq command that used i as the index variable. While this code had been used in a number of applicaitons, it was now giving trouble.

seq( i^2, i=1..10 );
Error, illegal use of an object as a name

After a stroke of fortune it was discovered that the problem was that Maple's imaginary unit had been changed from I to i. Given that this change was made, the error message now made sense.

I will post here the output of two commands that has me a bit worried. Of course it is entirely possible that I am overlooking something very simple, which is why I am writing to your site.

Dear Maple Users

I am mainly in favor of the new rules concerning subscripts. Using Ctrl+-- (double underscore) it is pretty straight forward to get a literal subscript and it displays much better in the palette Variables than was the case i Maple 16. Also the purple coloring of a variable containing a literal subscript makes sense, because it can be distinguished from the usual subscript (now Ctrl+shift+-). Good that you can remove the coloring in the View Menu (Atomic Variables...

Dear friends,

I am reporting with a brief comment concerning the integral int(1/(1+x^a), x=0..infinity) with a>=2 a real number. This was evaluated here.

Now Maple 15 (X86 64 LINUX) will quite happily compute this in its most simple form involving the sine when a is not a positive integer or a rational number. If it is, however, a beta function term results,...

Dear friends,

this is to share with you what a joy it was to work with Maple on the problem of enumerating non-isomorphic graphs. This problem goes back to Polya and Harary and it is a beautiful example of Polya counting, while also being of notable simplicity, so that a high school student or an undergraduate can follow it easily.

I have worked on this problem over the years, adapting my solutions in Cocoa and Lisp as I gained insights. My first attempt used...

I was thinking about the area problem, yet again, and found myself asking the question: why must we go through such elaborate means to get Maple to generate a plot of the region between two (or more curves)? I use the word elaborate to describe any process that would might become overwhelming, for, say a student, to go through to accomplish a task. Anyone with the most basic of backgrounds can understand the area problem, but yet, such an individual might not find it a trivial...
