## incompatible \$-char...

I was trying to generate a derivative of randomized order in Maple T.A.
It seems impossible to me since the \$ in the Maple syntax of
diff(function,x\$n)
and the \$ in the Maple T.A./brownstone syntax needed to denote a variable are incompatible.

Coding, for instance,
\$n = range(2,5,1);
\$function = maple("diff(x^5,x\$(\$n))");
or
\$n = range(2,5,1);
\$function = maple("diff(x^5,x\$\$n)");
in the algorithm section makes Maple T.A. complain about a syntax error immediately

Coding
\$n = range(2,5,1);
\$function = maple("diff(x^5,x\$n)");
jvm 1 | To Maple --> diff(x^5,x2)
being passed to Maple (taken from wrapper output).

## Locking Subsections...

Hi everyone! I would like to create a worksheet witb multiple worksheets, and I would like to use sections and subsections. Can anyone please tell me how to lock certain sections/subsections closed so users cannot open then? Thanks :)

## Simplify...

Hi everyone! Does anyone know how to get Maple to automatically evaluate expressions to a decimal approximation, instead of printing the value with square roots, and 'pi'? Thanks!

Hi! Could someone please tell me how to : Use hyperlinks to refer to other sections with the same worksheet? Thanks :)

## How to create this list?...

Hi dear members of this Forum,

I want to generate a list which depend on "n";
for n=2 I would like to generate the following list

>[[p1>q1, p2>q2],
>[p1>q1, p2<q2],
>[p1<q1, p2>q2],
>[p1<q1, p2<q2]]

for n = 3 I would like to generate the list:

>[ [p1+p2>q1, p1+p3>q2, p2+p3>q3],
[p1+p2>q1, p1+p3>q2, p2+p3<q3],
[p1+p2>q1, p1+p3<q2, p2+p3>q3],
[p1+p2>q1, p1+p3<q2, p2+p3<q3],
[p1+p2<q1, p1+p3>q2, p2+p3>q3],
[p1+p2<q1, p1+p3>q2, p2+p3<q3],
[p1+p2<q1, p1+p3<q2, p2+p3>q3],
[p1+p2<q1, p1+p3<q2, p2+p3<q3]]

for n=4

[ [p1+p2+p3>q1, p1+p2+p4>q2, p1+p3+p4>q3, p2+p3+p4>q4],..

If I have the X and Y variable all done up and I am trying to find a way to figure out if their is a way to make up a quadratic equation with maple. and can maple find the inflextion point of this curve ? Any help would be appreciated. Thanks Jp

## automatic generation of package documentation...

is it possible to implement a package so that the documentation and the help files will be automatically extracted from the sources?

## Formal matricial calculus...

Hi everybody ! I'm trying to sort a matricial expression : J=u'*Q*v (the ' is for the transposition, and * the matrix product) where u=A*x+a and v=B*x+b (Q,A and B are (3,3) matrices ; u,v,x,a and b are (3,1) vectors ; so J is a scalar) I want to stay in the formal field ,i.e I give no numerical values to my matrices an vectors. What i would like to do is to write J like : J=x'*K*x + Lx + M where (that's the result I found by hands) : K=A'*Q*B L=b'*Q'*A+a'*Q*B M=a'*Q*b And of course I would prefer Maple doing it for me ! :) As I really don't know how to take the problem, I tried very easy things :

## save/F5/colours......

Hi dear Maple's experts, 1.- If I have a variable r0 := x^3, Then, I can save r0 in a file: save r0, "myFile.txt"; Now, if I have some additional variables r1:= y^2+ 10; Is it possible to add r1 to the previous already created "MyFile.txt" (without overwriting the initial file)? 2.- When I work in Maple 10 (worksheet mode).. I woult like not to have to press "F5" to switch from "C 2D Input" to "C Maple Input" . Is it possible to set up "C Maple Input" as default option to write the comands? 3. When I write usually the commands appear in red.. and output appears in blue..It is possible change this colours?.

## finding maximum under constraint...

As a newbie to maple, I was wondering how do I find the maximum of a equation under contraint. i can find some but for this one I can't ... and it's getting to me f=1000*x+7500*y under constraint: g=10000000-(20000*x^0.8)*y^1.2 and for f=(20000*x^0.8)*y^1.2 under constraint: g=125000-1000*x-7500*y Who do I find the maximum using MAple 10 !!!???? Tx for the help

## Labeling graphs...

Hi All, I have the following graph: plot([(x/(2*sqrt(x)-3)),(-x+5)],x=-10..10,y=-4..6,discont=true, color=[red,navy], thickness=2); how do I a) label the two functions so that they are visible in the graph i.e. L=-x+5 beside the blue line and f(x)=x/(2*sqrt(x)-3)) in pretty text beside the upper red function? b) I wish for a dashed blue line (-x+5) instead of constant. Thanks in advance for any help :-) Robert

## Maple 10.02 update for 64-bit...

Does anybody know how to install the 10.02 update on a 64-bit version of Maple? -- Regards, Franky.
