## Do you know any antiderivative that maple can't fi...

I need to find an example of a function of one variable that has an antiderivative that can be expressed very simply in terms of fuctions that a 1st-year calculus student would know, but int (command name in maple) can't find an antiderivative.

Hint: Start with the antiderivative F(x), and get f(x) by differentiating it and simplifying. You might try something involving a few square roots and logarithms or exponentials or trigonometric functions.

I am trying to do a "radial" polar plot.  Yes, I know Maple can do polar plots, but their axes are always in the x-y direction.  I am looking for a polar plot that is round with the angle (theta)  labeled around the circle in degrees., and the value 'R' as the length from the center of the circle.  There should also be concentric circles marked with the distance from the center point so as to provide a scale for the R value.  So the grid looks like a round spiderweb.  Can Maple do this easily?  I looked all over the docum

## pdsolve - boundary condition issues...

Hi - I'm trying to solve a PDE using pdsolve() for the Graetz problem (heat transfer in a pipe). I can solve the PDE and get a general solution, but when I try to solve the equation with the boundary conditions, Maple thinks that the boundary conditions are new functions with the same name. Here is how I am doing it now: > heat := (1-z^2)*(diff(T(y, z), y)) = (diff(z*(diff(T(y, z), z)), z))/z; > cond := T(0, z) = 0, T(y, 1) = 1, diff(T(y, 0), z) = 0; > PDE := [heat, cond]; > sol := pdsolve(PDE, T(y, z)); This throws the error:

## Square root of large number...

I need to find the square root of a large number, x (about 70 digits long).  If I use x^0.5, the answer is displayed in scientific notation and  is rounded.  How can I find this number exactly?

## Area under the curves...

I have 2 functions, f(x) and g(x) both continous on [a,b] (a known interval). For which value of C ε [a,b] the area under f(x) and g(x) is minimal?

I know f(x) and g(x).

## numpoints vs grid...

In implicitplot, to insure the accuracy  of a curve, I usually increase the number of points (numpoints=*** ) or increase the number of grids ( grid=[***,***] ). Both can improve the quality of the curve. And sometimes one works better than the other. But I don't quite understand the relationship between the two options , and which is more effective and more economical. Thanks.

## Implicitplot problem...

I want to plot  the astroid by the following code, but only the part in the first quadrant appears. I don't know that is wrong and how to solve the problem. Thanks.

with(plots):
a:=1:
implicitplot(x^(2/3)+y^(2/3)=a^(2/3),x=-a..a,y=-a..a);

## Error in statement breaks the loop - change this b...

Hello

I am running NLPSolve within a loop over some values of parameters. For one of the parameter values, the NLPSolve gives me

Error, (in Optimization:-NLPSolve) no improved point could be found

and exits the loop. How do I change this behaviour? I would like the loop to continue for other parameters.

I have tried interface(errorbreak=0) interface(errorcursor=false) but this didn't work.

Thank you, Best Regards

In Maple 11 I need to write define_external procedure with 23 arguments.

For example:

## 5th ncrunch math program review

by: Maple

A few weeks ago I mentioned the ncrunch comparison of "mathematical programs for data analysis" in a comment in another thread.  There is now a new, 5th release of that review. The systems reviewed are:

• GAUSS
• Maple
• Mathematica
• Matlab
• O-Matrix
• Ox
• SciLab

The review is skewed towards statistical computation and data manipulation, but it includes several interesting comparisons of the major computer algebra systems (CAS).

There is a comparative performance section, and the worksheets used for that benchmarking are available for download. Here is the Maple worksheet, which was used with Maple 11.

## if statements...

Hi

how can i do this in maple

if(a>b>c) then 4

or maybe if(a>b) and if(b>c) then 4

## A case of trivial misunderstanding...

All:

This should be simple but I am clearly missing some of the nuances - can you please help me see what I am doing wrong?  I would like to solve 2 eqns in 2 unknowns:

eq15 := Kzeff15 = (Kvr*Kz15)/(Kvr+Kz15);

eq33 := Kzeff33 = (Kvr*Kz33)/(Kvr+Kz33);

Kz33 := (3.3/1.5)*Kz15;

Kzeff15 := 150612;

Kzeff33 := 253629;

soln_z15 := fsolve ({eq15,eq33},{Kvr,Kz15});

Greetings all

I would like to show the x y values next to the point on the plot does maple have a command to do this?

data := [[0, 0], [.5, -1], [1, 0], [2, 2], [3, 0], [5, -4], [7, 0], [11, 8], [15, 0], [18.5, -7], [22, 0], [24.5, 5], [27, 0]];
with(CurveFitting);
cubfit := BSplineCurve(data, x, order = 3);
plots[display](plot(data, style = point, color = black, symbol = BOX),
plot(cubfit, x = 0 .. 27, thickness = 2))
