Usually I work with classical interface, but the java interface has some
nice features which I want to use for printing.
Thus I open my *.mws worksheet as a *.mw and want to do just that. However
I have some problems, may be I am just too awkward here:
1. My mws output is 2 D and always non-italic, however in mw it tasteless
shows up as italic. I tried to change that, but there exists no way just
to say it to the character (one only can activate a check box to *make* it
italic, not conversely). The only way was to select all the sheet and then
de-activate italic through the menu bar.

I solve recursively a series of linear systems of ever increasing number of unknowns, proven to have a unique solution, each of which is expressed as a function of all the previous unknowns. So Y[i]=sum(c[i][j]*X[i][j],j=1..nops(X[i])), and most c[i][j]'s are nonzero.
I successfully used solve(Y[i],X[i]) and SolveTools[Linear](Y[i],X[i]) to get each Y[i] solution but, as i increases, the solution time increases exponentially.
For example, in my system (P4 2.66GHz, 2GB RAM) solving a system of 15 variables takes about 6 seconds, while one of 21 variables needs about 250 seconds!
Is this to be expected? I need to solve to about 40 variables this way but it doesn't seem possible with solution time increasing at this rate.

Sorry, I guess that less-than, greater than are not allowed
directly in posts.
In Maple10/11 there is the new statistics package,
which is pretty cool.
And there are lots of examples on how to create
a custom continuous distribution,
but not on creating custom discrete distributions.
for example:
U := Distribution(PDF = (t -> piecewise(t < 0, 0, t < 3, 1/3, 0)));
Is a great example of creating a continuous distribution,
but how can I create something similiar that is discrete?
Any examples are appreciated!!
Thx

I have a matrix for which the elements have imaginary components which are quite small. For purposes of readabililty I removed the imaginary components as follows:
A:=map(x->Re(x),A);
However, I was wondering - Is there any I could have displayed the matrix showing just the real components without actually getting rid of the imaginary ones?
Also, the components are displaying to 10 decimal digits which is awkward. I know if I set Digits:=5 for example, the diaplay would be more readable but I don't want the calculations to be done with that level of precision. Is there any way I ca

How do I use maple 11 to solve the following problem?
I am trying to upload my graph however the system is not allowing me to do so. Any pointers?
The question is:
Use Prim's algorithm to find a minimal spanning tree for the weighted graph. Give the weight of the minimal spanning tree found

How do I use Maple 11 to determine if my graph is a rooted tree, as well as draw the rooted tree with the root at the top without the arrow heads.

How do I use Maple 11 to determine reverse Polish notation or postfix form?
I can't find a example worksheet in order to plug-in my problem.

Maple needs commands to interpolate and plot large data sets. Consider the following:

# generate data
data := convert(LinearAlgebra[RandomMatrix](10000,2,generator=-100000..100000),listlist):
data := sort(map([op], [op(op(table(map(`=`@op, data))))]), (a,b)->evalb(a[1] < b[1])):
data := Matrix(map(proc(a) [a[1],a[2]/200.] end,data), datatype=float[8]):
# now suppose I take this data and...
f := CurveFitting[BSplineCurve](data, x);
plot(f, 0..100);

Someone trying to do this with real data (and 10000 points is small) will experience the following problems:

Maple needs proper sparse linear algebra. That means a data structure where row or column operations (good luck getting both) can be done in linear time and algorithms such as structured Gaussian elimination or iterative methods run in O(A) time, where A is the number of non-zero elements in the matrix.

Maple 11's implcitplot command contains a cool option to reduce the line count of a plot. I would like a separate command for this, along with the corresponding generalization (level of detail) to 3d plots. I think it would be good to apply this sort of thing automatically to make plots faster and also to make larger more detailed plots possible. I also think that the 3d plot facility is far too limited in terms of the number of polygons it can handle. It should be replaced with something capable of "millions of triangles per second", because that's what any $10 integrated graphics chip ca

A colleague has asked me this: The integral
int(exp(-x)/sqrt(x^2-1),x=1..infinity)
is equal to BesselK(0,1).
Is it possible to get Maple to make this evaluation?
I (or he) would be grateful for any ideas.

How do I use Maple to apply depth-first search to a graph to obtain a depth-first search of numbering of the verticies.
Once again I need to input my graph in order to retrieve this information. How does Maple provide this info based off my graph?

In exercise is Trees-- How do I use the breadth-first search algorithm to find a spanning tree for a connected graph. (Start with A, and use alphabetical order whrn there is a choice for a predecessor).
So the bottom line is I have a graph and listed in the text and I want to import it in maple in order to figure out the above info. I have used the command prompt but none seem to have what I am looking for. I am a new user, I have tried to modify preset graphs, however I need to have the ability to determine data from my graphs. Please provide help.
I am also trying to use the (ISTREE) function but it still does not provide me with the data I am looking for.

I got a set of instructions that i need to compute but i cannot put it all to work like one program or algorithm. i can only put it in bits. I have figured out how to put in Bessel function of a first kind, then how to derive it and few other things. But I am having trouble putting it all together. It isnt connecting for some reason. I assign name and then sub. I guess I don’t know how to do the algorithm. Maybe some other stuff is wrong. Im not sure. I hope someone here can help me perform these computations. I am at a beginner lever and hope you guys can help me out here. At the moment I have access to Maple7. Somebody from the department may help me get Maple11.

I want to use Compiler:-Compile for a function with a numerical vector v:= [1.0,2.0,3.0,4.0];
as initialized variable. The help refers to CodeGeneration/Details where it says:
"The CodeGeneration functions can analyze some rtable type declarations and constructors within procedures. Data types, dimensions and ranges are recognized, but most options are ignored. The only initializer accepted is a list. Dimensions and ranges must have integer values ..."
I did:

foo:=proc(x::float)
local v::Vector(1..4,datatype=float[8], order= Fortran_order);
v:= [1.0,2.0,3.0,4.0];
return x*v[1];
