A way of cutting holes on an implicit plot. This is from the field of numerical parameterization of surfaces. On the example of the surface  x3 = 0.01*exp (x1) / (0.01 + x1^4 + x2^4 + x3^4)  consider the approach to producing holes. The surface is locally parameterized in some suitable way and the place for the hole and its size are selected. In the first example, the parametrization is performed on the basis of the section of the initial surface by perpendicular planes. In the second example, "round"  parametrization. It is made on the basis of the cylinder and the planes passing through its axis. Holes can be of any size and any shape. In the figures, the cut out surface sections are colored green and are located above their own holes at an equidistant to the original surface.

Hey guys, I'm a new Maple user and I've been struggling to figure the collect command out.

I made a smaller example to show what I am looking for

I want to find out a way to use collect command and go from "c" output to "d", choosing the terms I want to be collected as common factors.

I'm also uploading the files if it's of any help, The one called question is the example in the picture above and final objeticve is the big expression that I`m trying to factor.

In the final objective file I'm looking for a way to make the "i" output be factored like this as:

Wi δ Wi (...) + Wi δ Wf (...) + Wi δ θi (...) + Wi δ θf (...) + Wf δ Wf (...) + Wf δ Wi (...) + Wf δ θi (...) + Wf δ θf (...) + ...


Thanks in advance





Assume that we have, in the cube C:=[-1,1]^N, for a fixed integer N>=2, a point X1  and   cosider the (closed) ball centered at X1 and radius R1:=0.6. Fixed an integer m>2, Somebody can indicate me how to compute the centers (belonging to C) and the radius of m disjoint balls with the above ball?

That is to say, compute points X2,...,Xm (in C) and positive numbers R2,...,Rm such that the intersection of the (closed) balls B(Xj,Rj) for j=1,...,m be empty. 

Some suggestion?

Many thanks in advance for your comments.

Dear Users,

I have a set of linear equations which can be presented as A(alpha,n) x(alpha)=b(alpha,n), where 'n' is the dimension of the square matric A.

For a particular value of "n" and "alpha", I can solve the unknown vector x. Further, I can differentiate Ax=b with respect to alpha to find out the rate of change of variable x with respect to alpha.

The above exercise reads, Ax'=b'-xA', which gives the unknown vector x', for a given value of alpha and n.

If I chose different values of n while fixing alpha=alpha0, the rate of change of x with alpha ( x' ) does not converge with 'n'. I noticed that x (alpha=alpha0) converges with n, also x(alpha=alpha0+ delta alpha) also converges with 'n'. I am interested in the query why x' does not converge, in spite of the fact that x converges? Any comments regarding the same are highly appreciated.




Hi MaplePrimes,

I'm trying to explore the polynomial r = n^2+n+39.  where n is an integer

I want restrictions on n such that r will factor into two trinomials.

Here is how far I got -

The 'has' function may be helpful.

Any help is appreciated.




I believe this is a bug:

subsindets(%, anything^rational, proc(x) if type(x, specfunc(anything, Q)^rational) then 'Q(x)' else 'x' fi end)<>
subsindets(%, specfunc(anything, Q)^rational, Q);
