Maple Questions and Posts

These are Posts and Questions associated with the product, Maple


I am fairly new to using the Maple software, so I apologize if my question is completely idiotic. Apologies, also, because I could not manage to enter my code as code. When I pressed the button it made the whole text as a code. 

I run the following code to seek -if there are any- analytic solutions for the following differential equation.

odeplus := (r^2+L^2)^(5/2)*(diff(f(r), `$`(r, 2)))+((15/4)*r*(r^2+L^2)^(1/2)+3*(r^2+L^2)^(5/2)/r)*(diff(f(r), r))+M^2*f(r)/(r^2+L^2)^(5/2)-((5/2)*((r^2+L^2)^(1/2))(l-1)+(55/64)*r^2/(r^2+L^2)^(3/2)+(r^2+L^2)^(5/2)*(l^2+3*l+3/2)/r^2)*f(r)+(((r^2+L^2)^(1/2))(5+(5/2)*l)+(5/8)*r^2/(r^2+L^2)^(3/2)-(r^2+L^2)^(5/2)*(3/2+l)/r^2)*f(r) = 0

and then I do 

dsolve(odeplus, f(r))

The solutions that Maple returns is given in terms of DESol. Could anyone try and break it down for me? What is this telling me and if I can indeed from the output obtain analytic solutions? Is this some sort of operator acting on something? 

Thank you in advance. 


According to the fhgure attaceh how i can gain the equation (2-27) . I write the equation (2-26) in maple but I couldnot to gain that result.

If possible to reach equation via maple?



FC := (1/2)*W_m^2*(c1*x^2+c2*y^2)+(E.(h^2))*W_m^2*(sum(An*((sinh(n*Pi/lambda)+n*Pi*cosh(n*Pi/lambda)/lambda)*cosh(2*n*Pi*y/a)-2*n*Pi*y*sinh(n*Pi/lambda)*sinh(2*n*Pi*y/a)/a)*cos(2*n*Pi*x/a)/(n^2*(sinh(n*Pi/lambda)*cosh(n*Pi/lambda)+n*Pi/lambda))+Bn*((sinh(n*Pi*lambda)+n*Pi*lambda*cosh(n*Pi*lambda))*cosh(2*n*Pi*x/b)-2*n*Pi*x*sinh(n*Pi*lambda)*sinh(2*n*Pi*x/b)/b)*cos(2*n*Pi*y/b)/(lambda^2*n^2*(sinh(n*Pi*lambda)*cosh(n*Pi*lambda)+n*Pi*lambda)), n = 1 .. n))

I tried the example in BodePlot help.

sys := TransferFunction( 1/(s-10) ):

That works OK. But, if I invoke Syrup, the example no longer works.

ckt := [V, Rsrc(50), C1(15e-9), L1(15e-6), C2(22e-9), L2(15e-6), C3(22e-9), L3(15e-6), C4(15e-9), 1, Rload(50)];

TF := subs(other, V=1, v[Rload]);
sys := TransferFunction(TF);

I get a message "not a valid plot structure".  OK, try the example, again.

sys := TransferFunction( 1/(s-10) ):
I also get the "not a valid plot structure" message.

What am I doing wrong?

Respected sir,

I have attached a file that contain integration . Sir I am unable to solve please give me some hint.

PLease note followings 

1. I want to get final expression , want to get the value of constant from boundary condition.

2.I want to get the final expression (.......+c1)

3.I will put boundary condition to determine the value of c1

Can somebody please help me with this assignment?

The Riemann-Liouville fractional derivatives is expressed in "inert" form using the FracSym routine Rfracdiff.
The explicit formula for the form of these fractional derivatives may be found in I. Podlubny, Fractional differential equations: An introduction to fractional derivatives, fractional differential equations, some methods of their solution and some of their applications, San Diego, 1999.)

Rfracdiff(u(x, t),t,alpha);
                             D[t     ](u(x, t))

If the fractional derivative is taken for a product, the generalised Leibnitz rule is used to express the result (the product operator used is &* and is non-commutative). 
Rfracdiff(u(x, t)&*v(x,t),t,alpha);
        )                          (alpha - n)              n          
       /     binomial(alpha, n) D[t           ](u(x, t)) D[t ](v(x, t))
      n = 0                                                            
Rfracdiff(v(x, t)&*u(x,t),t,alpha);
        )                          (alpha - n)              n          
       /     binomial(alpha, n) D[t           ](v(x, t)) D[t ](u(x, t))
      n = 0                                                            

Fractional derivatives of integer order revert to the MAPLE diff routine.

Rfracdiff(u(x, t)&*v(x,t),t,2);
         / d  / d         \\             / d         \ / d         \
         |--- |--- u(x, t)|| v(x, t) + 2 |--- u(x, t)| |--- v(x, t)|
         \ dt \ dt        //             \ dt        / \ dt        /

                      / d  / d         \\
            + u(x, t) |--- |--- v(x, t)||
                      \ dt \ dt        //

The FracSym rouine TotalD may also be used to find total derivatives. evalTotalD is then used to evaluate the result (in jet notation). For example, 

TotalD(xi[x](x, y),x,2);
                             D[x ](xi[x](x, y))
        [     / d             \      2 / d  / d             \\
        [y_xx |--- xi[x](x, y)| + y_x  |--- |--- xi[x](x, y)||
        [     \ dy            /        \ dy \ dy            //

               / d  / d             \\       / d  / d             \\]
           + 2 |--- |--- xi[x](x, y)|| y_x + |--- |--- xi[x](x, y)||]
               \ dy \ dx            //       \ dx \ dx            //]


Consider the fractional PDE from: R. Sahadevan, T. Bakkyaraj, Invariant analysis of time fractional generalized Burgers and Korteweg-de Vries equations, J. Math. Anal. Appl. 393 (2012) 341-347.

We use the Rfracdiff routine to express the 
 fractional derivative with respect to t:
fde1:=Rfracdiff(u(x, t),t,alpha) = (diff(u(x, t), x,x))+n*(u(x, t))^p*(diff(u(x, t),  x));
        alpha             / d  / d         \\            p / d         \
     D[t     ](u(x, t)) = |--- |--- u(x, t)|| + n u(x, t)  |--- u(x, t)|
                          \ dx \ dx        //              \ dx        /

sys1:=[Rfracdiff(u(x, t),t,alpha) = (diff(v(x, t), x)), Rfracdiff(v(x, t),t,alpha) = -u(x, t)*diff(u(x, t),x)];
[   alpha              d              alpha                      / d         \]
[D[t     ](u(x, t)) = --- v(x, t), D[t     ](v(x, t)) = -u(x, t) |--- u(x, t)|]
[                      dx                                        \ dx        /]

We use the the FracSym routine fracDet to find the determining equations for the symmetry for fde1. 
NOTE: The fourth argument (some integer at least 1) corresponds to the number of terms to be "peeled off" from the sums which occur in the extended infintesimal function for the fractional derivative. A value of 2 provides a good balance between information for solution of determining equations and speed.

deteqs:=fracDet([sys1], [u, v],[x, t], 2, alpha=(0.1)..1);
Error, (in desolv/PickLHSDerivative) Cannot pick out the left hand side derivatives

Please suggest what problem it may be?

would like to point to graph then it highlight graph with virtical line

and mark 1 in one of row in one of column in table like data 

just like define feature manually for machine learning but using graph

why pdsolve does not work?

Q and alpha are constant. I want to find f(x,y).


"restart: w(x,y) :=Q*sin^(2)(Pi*x)*sin^(2)(Pi*y)"

proc (x, y) options operator, arrow, function_assign; Q*sin(Pi*x)^2*sin(Pi*y)^2 end proc


PDE := diff(f(x, y), x, x, x, x)+2*(diff(f(x, y), x, x, y, y))/alpha^2+(diff(f(x, y), y, y, y, y))/alpha^4+((diff(w(x, y), y, y))*(diff(w(x, y), x, x))-(diff(w(x, y), x, y))^2)/alpha^2

diff(diff(diff(diff(f(x, y), x), x), x), x)+2*(diff(diff(diff(diff(f(x, y), x), x), y), y))/alpha^2+(diff(diff(diff(diff(f(x, y), y), y), y), y))/alpha^4+((2*Q*sin(Pi*x)^2*Pi^2*cos(Pi*y)^2-2*Q*sin(Pi*x)^2*sin(Pi*y)^2*Pi^2)*(2*Q*Pi^2*cos(Pi*x)^2*sin(Pi*y)^2-2*Q*sin(Pi*x)^2*sin(Pi*y)^2*Pi^2)-16*Q^2*sin(Pi*x)^2*sin(Pi*y)^2*Pi^4*cos(Pi*x)^2*cos(Pi*y)^2)/alpha^2











no matter what e is , expect to output the same 0.733333



I have a set of nonlinear equations (transcendental) containing variables and one free parameter. I want to solve this system for variables while varying parameter's value. I have tried with fsolve and solve commands keeping fixed the parameter value, but they are not solving yet. Is there any way to solve this system for a range of parameter's value.
The systmem is like this, x,y,z are the variables and 'a' is the parameter:

Many thanks in advance.


I submit you this strange result:
for somenumerical  values of a, b, c  (a, b, c real and b > a), Maple 2018 is not able to compute the mean of
c*U where U is a Uniform random variable with support [a, b].





`Standard Worksheet Interface, Maple 2018.0, Windows 7, March 10 2018 Build ID 1298750`


z := .4070716688*RandomVariable(Uniform(0.12-0.02*0.12, 0.12+0.02*0.12));



Error, (in Statistics:-Mean) the expression does not have a taylor expansion at t = 0


z := .4070716688*RandomVariable(Uniform(a, b));
subs({a=0.12-0.02*0.12, b=0.12+0.02*0.12}, %);










PLEASE: Maple still fails if I replace  a = 0.12 -0.02*0.12 by its value 0.1174
                                                                       and b = 0.12+0.02*0.12 by its value 0.1224

This is incomprehensible and could hide a more profound problem.

Hello everyone, i've a problem working with Maple because i have a really big system of equations and for everything that i have to do with them, for example, collect terms, coefficients, take a lot of time from me. The problem it is when, for example, i wait 30 minutes to take the coefficients from a equation and in the next command Maple might stop, then i have to close and start all over again... My question it is if have anyway to save my file in a way that if i close and re open i dont have to compile all again. Maybe this is pretty obvious but i really dont know how to do it, because if i close my work and open again, i have to compile everything again.

I have a eigenvalue problem like:

[FF1]* {w}=N^2 *[FF2] *{w}

[FF1] and [FF2] are a*b matrices (non square matrix) , {w} are vectors(eigenvectors) and the values of N are eigenvalues.

I want to obtain eigenvalues and eigenvectors by computing Moore-Penrose pseudo-inverse of [FF2] and do the procedures below :

[FF2]^-1 * [FF1] *{w} =N^2 *{w}            ,        (assume  [FF2]^-1   is Moore-Penrose pseudo-inverse of [FF2]   )

[FF2]^-1 * [FF1] = [FF3]  ,  ( [FF3] is a b*b matrix- squre matrix) 

so  [FF3] *{w}=N^2 *{w}

then I can use LinearAlgebra[Eigenvectors](FF3) to get eigenvalues and eigenvectors. 

I know that Moore-Penrose pseudo-inverse of [FF2] * [FF1] isn't equal to Identity matrix. [FF2]^-1 * [FF1] <> [ I ] . But assume it can be. ( I have a solution for this problem) . 

My biggest problem is [FF2] and [FF1] are large-scale sparse matrix and it takes hours or several days that maple can compute Moore-Penrose pseudo-inverse of [FF2]  and also LinearAlgebra[Eigenvectors](FF3). 

Main question : can I compute Moore-Penrose pseudo-inverse and LinearAlgebra[Eigenvectors]  by using Parallel Programming?  if the answer is yes , how? give me an example please.

if the answer is No , is there any way (any algorithm) to find the inverse of a large non-sqaure matrix or eigenvalues of a large matrix faster?

please introduce some books for parallel programming in maple or general.



From the attached code, you can see that I have a Matrix, A, that I am trying to output into Fortran code so that I can simply copy and paste this long matrix into fortran. The output does not look correct. Doesa anyone have an idea on how to put this matrix A into a form that can be easily copy and pasted into Fortran? You can see that I tried to do each line individually in the attatched code but I am really looking for a way to do the entire Matrix. Thanks for any help or suggestions.
