Give the following functions find Domain, Range, Possible Asymptotes, Intercepts, Critical Points, Intervals of Increase, Decrease, Relative and Absolute Extrema, and Concavity.

A) f(x)=x(x^2-6x+8)

B) f(x) =x^3/4 -3x

After two days of trying to take the Jacobian of a multi-variable mapping in Maple, I'm still finding no way. Here is an example of what I mean by "multi-variable mapping":

(x,y) -> x^2-y^2

Every AP high-school student knows how to take the partial derivatives of that, but Maple's "Jacobian" feature doesn't work on mappings. It only works on expressions.

So I spent today trying to leverage off the "D" feature, only to find it rendered useless by bugs:

It took me less than two days to do it in Mathematica, by way of comparison.

On the website, they show a photo of a man elated to be doing math in Maple, but that's not how it's gone for me. I'm cursing outloud, and my blood pressure is high. I'm angry that I lost money on a product that can't take the Jacobian of a mapping, and I'm angry that I lost two days of my life doing tedious debugging while paying money instead of getting paid for my work.

Maple pays math PhD's to release a commercial CAS that can't take the Jacobian of a mapping. So much for the value of a PhD.

I need to find the intersection of 3 planes.


I managed to get the intersection using LinearSolve but I keep getting an error when I try to plot out the planes using plot3d. What can I change in the commands for it to work?

What if a person needs to have these lines:

> with(VectorCalculus):
> assume(x, 'real');
> assume(y, 'real');

and then he wants to take partial derivatives? Not possible? Once you load VectorCalculus and declare x and y real, Maple stops doing partial derivatives? Why.


I have been away from Maple for a year.
Then, when I used op command, I am puzzed to notice the results were different from those I know.

      _EXPSEQ((x+5)^2, x+y)

Result I know is 

        (x+5)^2, x+y

Has a modifire such as _EXPSEQ   automatically come to be attatched?
Or, can I have maple express it  in the form I know:  (x+5)^2, x+y?

Thank you in advance.








Given the following functions and respective intervals graph them and determine all values of in the interval (a,b) such that

f'(c) =f(b)-f(a)/b-a (apply the Mean Value Theorem) 

 Question 1: f(x)=x^3-2*x      [0,2]

 Question 2 : g(x)= cuberoot(x-3)^2     [-3,4]


Please HELP!!! 


how I can write a program code for newmark method.

in this method time has 3 order derivation

 We know the following facts: 

The SequenceGraph command returns a graph with the specified degree sequence given as input, if such a graph exists. It raises an exception otherwise. 
 But  If I  want to get more graphs  that satisfy this condition of degree sequence ? (If graphs are not many ,I want get all graphs better)
what should I do.?
For example: DrawGraph(SequenceGraph([3, 2, 2, 1, 1, 1]));  It returns the first graph below, but it is obvious that the second graph also fits the condition.

Hello Dear,

I have the following equation

 This equation is satisfied if the coefficients are zero.

So I need an order in Maple to write that



Good morning everyone, 

I have a problem, when I try to evaluate the definite integral below, Maple can not provide a result. What can I do so that the Maple can calculate this integral?

This is the Maple code with the result:

  I want list all  diameter-2  Nonisomorphismgraphs  of order n . I use the following code, but its running speed  is slow with  order of graph gradually increasing . (for example,n=10)
 Are there other ways to Improve it? 
Graphs_data:=[NonIsomorphicGraphs(4,restrictto =[connected], output = graphs, outputform =graph)]:

  By the way,  Why doesn't size=[50,50] work ?


    As a first step to my question, let  G be  a graph and  I'd like to know  whether it contains a C4 (cycle of 4) as its subgraph.
     For example: .   it contains C4.  So  program may be return true.  
    I'm most concerned about the following thing ( it is important problem for me, since in graphtheory, we usually consider some class graphs contain no sepecific graph ) :
   1 Further , I want to  get all connected graphs of order less than 6  which  contains no C4 .
   2 More generally, I want  to konw  a graph  whether contains some graph as its subgraph.For example : does it contain K4CompleteGraph(4)K32  CompleteGraph(3, 2)  and so on ?
    I read the  function subgaph.  But  It didn't solve my problem. Many thanks for your help or advise.
   # I  just know there is a function  IsTriangleFree which test if graph is triangle-free ( graph comtains no C3 in Maple 2019. I think my question and how to program may be  meaningful.


Versions concerned:  [ Maple 2015 ... Maple 2018 ]

I use DocumentTools:-Tabulate to display a matrix of numbers while coloring them according to some condition.
(line DocumentTools:-Tabulate(M, color=((M,i,j)->`if`(M[i,j]>3,....) below ... please note the output is not loaded for some unknown reason).
The fact is that the matrix appears with black characters meaning 'color' doesn't work.

In a second attempt I convert matrix M into a matrix of strings and use now
DocumentTools:-Tabulate(S, color=((S,i,j)->`if`(parse(S[i,j])>3,...)
I get now the desired result with some blue and red numbers.

So converting to strings could be a workaround.
But think to matrices where elements would be algebraic expressions, for instance 
M := Matrix(2, 2, (i,j)->exp(x^i)+cos(x*j))
and that we use the coloring scheme is color=((M,i,j)->`if`(i+j>3, "Red", "Blue")
Converting M to a string matrix will display the element [2, 2] in red and the others in blue, but what you get then is a no longer a 2D pretty output but, literally, things like exp(x^2)+cos(x*2) 

The "convert to string" workaround is thus far from perfect.
Is the fact that 'color' only acts on strings a "normal and known" behaviour?
Is it possible to change the color of the font for non "string type matrices" ?


M :=Matrix(2, 2, (i,j)->i+j)

M := Matrix(2, 2, {(1, 1) = 2, (1, 2) = 3, (2, 1) = 3, (2, 2) = 4})


DocumentTools:-Tabulate(M, color=((M,i,j)->`if`(M[i,j]>3, "Red", "Blue")), width=30)

S :=convert~(M, string):
DocumentTools:-Tabulate(S, color=((S,i,j)->`if`(parse(S[i,j])>3, "Red", "Blue")), width=30)




Dear friends~

Recently I wanted to create some funny gif with Maple based on other interesting pictures but I met some problems:(1)I read many commands in ImageTools but few can aid me.(2)If I use “plot(,background=file_address)”,then the whole background will be filled with pictures but I just want it to be a part of my gif.I finally noticed that “plot3d(,image=file_address)”can realize my idea to some extents if I adjust orientation’s value  suitably.

However,I still think my operations can be improved(for example,my code consumes a fair amount of  memory) and there maybe one better approach to be good too. Hence I upload my code and sincerely look forward your suggestions and help~
