Hi I am looking for eigenvectors of a messy jacobian matrix, maple is taking its sweet time with this (but still probably faster than me ;)) I have access to a 250 node(dual and quad opteron) cluster, is there anyway to run maple in parallel? If not will maple see a speed up when run on a dual proc or dual core workstation?

Hi I have the following command:
> LinearSolve(E0,Z,free=R) assuming real;
when I execute this I get:
Error, (in assuming) when calling 'LinearAlgebra:-LinearSolve'. Received: 'unexpected argument(s): free = R, LinearAlgebra:-LinearSolve'
I am not sure why? can anyone explain? Without free=R it works fine...

I have used Maple 7 under Windows 2000. Now I want to port it to Windows Vista. It seems to work well, but only when instructions are introduced onto the Maple screen by drag and drop from an external text file. When I try to type numbers or literals nothing appears on the screen. This peculiar behaviour is not observed with other programs, Mathematica (4.2), for example. Additionally, when I try to save a file, the Maple screen disappears immediately. There must be a simple solution of these problems, but I have not yet found it. Any help will be welcome.
Thanks!

It appears that Maple uses N as the denominator and not N-1 in calculating a covariance matrix in the Statistics package. Why?

To read data from file and fit it to a known equation,for example y a*x+b I used the commands:
fs := ImportMatrix("C:\\Fit\\test.dat"):
with(Statistics):eq:=Fit(BesselK(a*x+b,fs[1....200,1],fs[1...200,2],x);
but I do not know how to let Maple calclate the values of y for each x after I knew the parameters a and b from the fitting.and how I can plot the fitting equation to compare it with the plot of the data to know is the fitting is good or know.

I want to find the real part of the following expression, but I keep having difficulty:
simplify(evalc((zks/(alphas+I*vs)*(exp(-I*times*vs)-exp(-I*times1*vs-alphas*tds))))) assuming real;
Maple refused to do it... what can I do?
Thanks!

Maple folks,
I am a Maple newbie. I am trying to figure out how to graph an inequality:
x + y

Hi all,
I am just playing around with Maple, with curiosity, to see how smart it is and how much can I rely on it for work...
Here is a probably difficult integral, I couldn't get Maple to do it:
assume(b>0, T>0, a>0, w>0);
int(exp(-b*sqrt(w))/sqrt(a^2+w^2), w = T .. infinity);
Is there a way to get it work? I tried a few numerical values, this integral should converge... right?

Hello,
I have a problem with a system of ODEs. The three differential equations are as follows:
diff(c(t),t) = 2*(c(t))^2 + 21/50*c(t) - 1/100*(h(t))^2 - 1/5*c(t)*h(t) - (9/2000)*h(t) + 49/4000;
diff(h(t),t) = h(t)*(c(t) - 1/5*(h(t)-1));
diff(k(t),t) = 8/100*k(t) - h(t) - 1/5*k(t)*h(t);
`diff(c(t),t) = 2*(c(t))^2 + 21/50*c(t) - 1/100*(h(t))^2 - 1/5*c(t)*h(t) - (9/2000)*h(t) + 49/4000;`

`diff(h(t),t) = h(t)*(c(t) - 1/5*(h(t)-1));`

`diff(k(t),t) = 8/100*k(t) - h(t) - 1/5*k(t)*h(t);`

As t goes to infinity the three variables c(t), h(t), k(t), respectively, approach certain values -in this setting `1/50`

, `11/10`

, `55/3`

, respectively- with the values of the derivatives converging to 0. (The point is saddle path-stable.)

Hi all,
I am just curious about this problem, which has been in my mind for long time.
I have seen some complex-valued functions, which are not in closed-form. For example, the complex-valued functions are defined by ODE:
y'(t)=a+b*y(t)+c*(y(t))^2 + ...
where the numbers in above ODE are complex-valued and the complex-valued functions are defined by functions of y(t), such as exp(y(t)), etc. Such ODEs can only be solved numerically. Sometimes even a closed-form solution is available, we would rather choose to solve it numerically because the closed-form solution often involves hyper functions and super complicated expressions.

I have the following:

> / / 2 \\
> 1 | 2 2 |/ 2 2\ 2 2||
> eqn := - +\b + a , sqrt\\b + a / - 4 a c // - c
> 2
(1/2)
1 2 1 2 1 / 4 2 2 4 2 2\
eqn := - b + - a + - \b + 2 b a + a - 4 a c / - c
2 2 2
> solve(eqn, c)
2 2

Here are some possible bugs or limitations that I have come across while working with Tensors in the new physics package. I have done best of my efforts looking into the documentation, but it is still possible that the bugs I am listing are not bugs at all but outcome of lack of my knowledge in using Maple. My intention of creating this blog is to not to criticize but to help the Physics package development team in making updates. I appreciate their efforts for developing a much needed package for areas like fluid mechanics, continuum mechanics, theory relativity etc.
Platform I am using: Maple Ver 11.01 on Mac OS X 10.4.10

Here's a question I was asked very recently: "When creating a plot, is it possible to specify the points at which the input expression should be evaluated?" The answer is "yes" for 2-D plots, and this is done with the 'sample' option.
Use the command plot(f(x), x=a..b, sample=[x1, x2, ..., xn]) to have f(x) evaluated at points x1, x2, ..., xn. Note this produces a plot that *includes* points with x-values x1, x2, ..., xn. To produce a plot that contains *only* these points, you need to add the adaptive=false option as well.

I want to solve the following task efficiently.
I need to read data from S files (in my case S = 50000).
Each file has T rows of 5 floats each. Here T=1000 is
a time index and 5 is the dimension of a dynamical system.
From each file I want to read the j coordinate and to assign
its T values to a column in a matrix X. At the end of
this process I'll have an X array or matrix of dimension
T x S. How can I do this efficiently?
When I use 'readdata'
in order to read the Tx5 matrix from a single file into a
list D, this is a fast process. But assigning, naively,
the j column from this matrix to my matrix X, using a for loop,
