## Clarification on Plot Builder input...

Asked by:
Just a quick question again: if I create a function by way of, say: f := x->2x; then I can't use the plot builder by right-clicking the result. However, defining an expression as f := 2x; works fine. I realize that the plot builder pulls in the function literally and it doesn't like the format of x->2x. However, I'm just finishing up a student manual, and since it is a tad bit confusing, I just wanted to make sure that this is the intended behaviour, and that I'm not missing anything. Thanks again, /Ivan

## Plotting Polyhedra

by: Maple
Well, that last blog entry sure generated a lot of discussion! I'm going to move on to something a bit more fun and less controversial: how to generate a 3-D plot of a polyhedron. There are different ways to do this in Maple, depending on how complicated the polyhedron is and what else you want to do with it. I've uploaded a worksheet with a few simple examples.

## Error Bars...

Can Maple produce plots of data with error bars ?

## Points...

Asked by:
When I post a question, at the top of the screen it says I get one point. What is that for?

## Precision...

Asked by:
I am trying to do some calculations using very small numbers. For example evaluating (sqrt(x^2+9)-3)/x^2 for x=.1, .01, .001, .0001, .00001, .000001 and .0000001 which should result in values closer and closer to 1/6, but the calculations seem to break down for any x value smaller than .001 which surprizes me. Does Maple offer some sort of double or triple precision option that I can use to accurately do calculations with the smaller numbers?

## Help with plotting...

Asked by:
Hi. I'm currently running Maple 10 for my project. So far I have successfully plotted 2d graphs of Re(A) vs d and Im(A) vs d. Both Re(A) and Im(A) are dependent on d. Now what I want to do is to plot a 3d graph with Re(A) in the x-axis and Im(A) in the y-axis with an independent variable of d. I can't seem to figure out how to do this with the Interactive Plot Builder and I wish I could try solving the problem by posting in this forum. I just started using Maple so any tip would be very much appreciated.

## Avoiding evaluation with 2-D math

by: Maple
I've been asked: how do I include a mathematical expression in a plot caption without having it evaluate? An example is displaying 2(x+y) in the caption without having it appear as 2x+2y. The easiest way to do this is to create an atomic identifier from the expression in the input line. In the 2-D input line, you'll have plot(..., caption=2(x+y)). Select 2(x+y) and right-click to bring up the context menu. Then go to 2-D Math -> Convert To -> Atomic Identifier. This turns the expression into a single name. Note that it is no longer equivalent to the expression 2(x+y), even though it looks exactly like it.

## "Add an initial condition" menu in Maple 10...

Asked by:
Even though dsolve is great, I'm just curious as to how the "Add an initial condition" menu choice works in the Standard Mode. If I enter a simple equation like this: diff(y(x),x)=0; I would like to create the initial condition that y(0)=6. I right-click, add an initial condition and blue "reply" text comes up that looks like the IC I would enter for dsolve. However, I can't edit that IC, and it just generally does nothing. How would I go about this? Thanks, /Ivan

## Using a lowess filter...

Asked by:
I have some 2-dimensional data to which I would like to fit a curve. The data is not functional, i.e. there can be multiple values of y for a given x. The curve should be continuous, but otherwise I have little idea about what form it should take. Maple provides a really nice way to plot one such curve: Statistics[ScatterPlot] with the lowess option. But I do not want to just plot the curve. I would also like to do computations with the curve. For example, I would like to compute the sum of squared residuals. What is the best way to get the curve (as a procedure, say)?

## slightly strange strange plot behaviour

by: Maple

Does anyone else see the following strange behaviour in the Maple 11 plot engine?

I was acting in a Std GUI Worksheet, not a Document. (I use Maple for 64bit Linux, which may or may not matter.)

1) In this next plot below, a (superfluous?) solid triangle appears. It lies in a xz-parallel plane at y=-1, with vertices (0.0,0.0,0.0), (1.0,-1.0,0.4), and (1.0,-1.0,0.0).

plot3d(sqrt(1-y^2),x=1..2,y=-1..1,colour=red,filled=true,view=[-0..2,-1..1,0..1]);

## I can´t get any output; I just get the instruction...

Asked by:
I´ve just programed some procedures. Those procedures don´t have any syntax errors. But after the execution I don´t obtain any result, I get only the instruction to execute. Where´s the problem?

## Smoothing a curve...

I am trying to plot a graph of 3sin(3x) that is being displayed as choppy lines. How do I get it to display smoother? Thanks, glenn

## Rotate curves around axis to make a solid?...

Asked by:
Can anyone point me to a tutorial or something to show me how to take 2 curves and rotate them around an axis to form a 3D solid? thanks, glenn

## Defaulting Fonts...

Asked by:
I'm trying to set my default font and type set for my documents and worksheets but can't find where to do so. Using Mac OS and Maple 11. If I turn off bold for example and hit return it turns it back on. Even tried selecting entire document content and turning bold off but still when I hit enter it goes back to bold. What gives? thanks, glenn
