I'm trying to find the largest prime number in consecutive digits of e but maple seems to have problems with large integers. Does anyone know a way to make this work better?
for i from 0 to 100 do
a := floor(e*10^i); #e is the natural base e
if isprime(a) then print(a);
end if
end do
it finds the first 3, then gives the error:
Error, cannot determine if this expression is true or false: isprime(floor(100000000*exp(1)))
I believe it is due to precision of integer values.

PROBLEM: Construct and display the first 10 elements of the Fibonacci sequence F_n, defined such that F_1 = F_2 = 1, and F_n = F_(n-1) + F_(n-2) for n > 2. This is how I approached this: Any suggestions or criticisms about my approach would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

I noticed that commands work when I use with(student) and fail to work when I use caps as in with(Student) Am i entering the wrong syntax? Maple help says Student supercedes student package.

I enter the following and I get the "unable to load module 'rightbox'" message. Student[Calculus1][rightbox](sin(x),x=0..Pi,20) Please let me know how to fix this

I would like to know if it is possible, how to plot a function that is stepwise, something like: for x< -1, y=2-x; for -1<= x <= 1, y=x; for x>1, y=2x+1;

Is it possible to do this all on one plot? I'm extremely new to Maple, so I apologize if the answer is quite obvious! Thanks!

PROBLEM: Do not use the functions nextprime, prevprime, or ithprime in this exercise. Use some kind of do-loop or nested do-loops and conditional statements to compute and display an expression sequence, assigned to the variable P, consisting of the 10 smallest positive prime numbers. This is what I came up with. I reached the value of the counter "n", (for lack of a better name) by trial and error, and that just happened to give me the correct number (10) of primes in the sequence P.

can you animate implicitplots? if so, how?

Hello,
I need to find a limit function of recurent progression:
y0 = a; yn = a + int(x * y(n-1), x) for n=infinity.
Thank you very much for any solution

Is it possible to use Sketch and draw a straight line? I want to use document mode to retype my class notes so I want to include graphs and illustartions. I am taking PHY-2048 where we are studing vectors, dot product, cross product etc.

Hi!
I have a Maple worksheet comprising of TEXT + MATH, mainly for loops and if statements, using matrices. Can someone please let me know how I can turn this sheet into Fortran code (very detailed instructions necessary!)
Thanks for your help! :)

I need to generate pimitive polynomials of degree 17 over GF(2^32) for use in an LFSR working over 32-bit words.
Does anyone know how it can be done?

I'm trying to solve a partial differential equation with two boundary conditions below. The general solution contains arbitrary functions of the non-differentiated variable. These functions are solved for and assigned but do not appear in the final solution return. Can anybody help me with this?

Hi, I want to draw the contourplot of this two family of lines x*y and x*y^2. with(plots): contourplot( {x*y, x*y^2}, x=0..10, y=0..20); I would like that the first function (x*y) is colored in red ad the secod (x*y^2) in blue. How could I do it? I tried with "colouring= [red, blue]" but the coloring is not what I want. Thanks in advance for the help. JJ (By the way..I wish you the best to all of you during 2006!!)

This is the simple code that I came up with (after some frustration) to solve the problem of separating the sequence of positive integers from 1 to 20 into one sequence of primes and one sequence of nonprimes, and eventually displaying those sequences. I'm just curious to see what other ways this same question could have been solved.

Hi. I'm a very new Maple user, but I don't think that this qualifies as a Newbie question. Has anybody had problems when trying to write directly to a PS file from within the Maple GUI on OS 10.4.3 for Mac? Consider the following:
currentdir(kernelopts(homedir)):
plotsetup(ps,plotoutput="testplot.ps"):
plot(sin(x),x=0..2*Pi);
Running this code from the command-line works as expected, but running this from the GUI interface usually returns:
Error, Error in device driver: plot terminated
The strange thing is that about 10% of the time, the above code actually will work from the GUI. I cannot produce failure or success consistently in the GUI. I have tried this on both a G4 and a G5. Am I the only user who has had this problem?
