MaplePrimes Questions

I have a fairly simple worksheet with a 56x2 matrix M1 which I am trying to export to Excel with the following 

ExcelTools:-Export( M1, "C:/Temp/M1.xlsx", 1, "B2")

This causes the following message to appear

After that the program is frozen and totally unresponsive.  The only way to proceed is end the task in Task Manager..

I am trying to upload the worksheet but am not sure if I have succeeded


I'm wondering if there is an equivalent implementation of the Mathematica Cases.

Usually, if I want to find all the occurrences of a specific pattern at any level in my expression I would use 

For example, if I have 
expr = {sin[x]/(sin[2-x]+1)-12,sin[x/2]^2}
will return 

Is there a way to achieve the same with Maple?

How can we put a z-axis label on the top as in the attached picture?

I am solving a very simple first-order IVP whose solution can be expressed as v(t) = (10/(3*t+1250))^(1/3). I've tried multiple simplify( ) and combine( ) but I cannot get Maple to simplify the solution to this form. Some of my attempts are in the attached worksheet.

Any thoughts on how to accomplish this?

Dear Sir or Madam,

I cannot get a solution from this equation. Can someone show me how to find (a) solution(s) for it?

This is what I look for: The 'height' of a parabola expressed in terms of its arc length and its radius.

Hence, I would love to solve one of these two (equal) expressions:

solve(L = sqrt(a^2 + 4*h^2) + a^2/(2*h)*arcsinh(2*h/a), h)

solve(L = a^2*(h*sqrt(1 + 4*h^2/a^2)/a + 1/2*ln(2*h/a + sqrt(1 + 4*h^2/a^2)))/h, h)

Thank you for trying out !

I created a Github repository with files to reproduce the example that my question is based on.

I am using Grid:-Run to compute a 10000x3 matrix in each of 100 parallel runs. I then average the 100 matrices to obtain a final 10000x3 matrix, which I saved to an .m file.

It contains a variable called with the matrix.

Each row of the matrix is a 3d point, and the entire matrix represents a trajectory on a sphere. I'd like to display an animation of this trajectory. Now, my question is not about how to do this, but rather about the memory requirements necessary to do so.

I can plot trajectories with, say, 1000 points, but apparently 10000 requires too much memory.

The Github repository I linked to contains an example of all of this.

The worksheet reads the matrix from the .m file and reads some procedures defined in the .mpl file that are used for creating the animation data.

Then, a call to the procedure animateMatrices basically calls plots:-display to display the matrix as an animation.

I've been able to display the first 5000 rows of the matrix.

What type of memory is running out when I try to display the animation of the full 10000 rows?

Here is a screenshot of my Activity Monitor right before I get the

Error, out of memory error while processing result

I try to find the value of the highest peak by using Optimization. But Maple returns an error with the comment "Error, (in Optimization:-NLPSolve) abs is not differentiable at non-real arguments". How to remove it?

Hi! I need to simplify a polynomial over an arbitrary field F on a radical variable ν, such that for some power j, ν is in F.

the polynomial takes the form:


but, since νj is in F, this divides every element νi/j into a cotient group of order j, so this can be rewritten as a radical extension of F, in the form: 


where ki, ai are in F. I feel like this is a very straightforward technique for handwritten algebra, but i can't see a command for this on Maple 18. Nor the simplify(..., radicals) Or the combine(...,radicals) seems to help here. Maybe there's an special command for this? Must i do it myself? Please, any help is aprecciated.

This question is based on the following worksheet I created specifically to show my question:

Unfortunately, MaplePrimes gives me an error when I try to insert the contents here directly.

Basically my question is about the syntax of plots:-display.

I have a sphere

sphereDisplay := plottools:-sphere([0, 0, 0], 1, transparency = 0.9);

and something which is the result of calling plots:display on a sequence of two other other plots:-display.

arrowAndTrailDisplay := plots:-display(seq(plots:-display(computeArrowPlotFrame(m, t, red), computeTrailPlotFrame(m, t, windowSize, red)), t = times), insequence = true)

You can see in the attached worksheet what computeArrowPlotFrame and computeTrailPlotFrame are, but they are basically lists of plot structures. arrowAndTrailDisplay is thus an animation containing two different sequences of frames.

I wish to have Maple plot the sphere and the animation together. This works as expected (a static sphere and the animation of an arrow and a trail of the path of the tip of the arrow)

plots:-display([sphereDisplay, arrowAndTrailDisplay]):

but the following does not work as expected (instead it plots each frame separately)


adding insequence=true to the latter makes it work. But my question is why do I have to add that? I can't understand, from syntax standpoint why the former plots arrowAndTrailDisplay as an animation but the latter does not.

I would have thought the arcsin(sin(x)) = sin(arcsin(x)).

Good Day to all of you.

I am using the function NLPSolve to optimize a function and get its independent variable mínimum value. The problem is that is imposible to plot that Numbers because of the output way. Is like [5.02, [x=0.02]] and is imposible for my to graph. 
The file is attached and also the code of someone tha did it in matlab, is exacly the same result i want to obtain.

I would be really thanks if someone can help me.

Best regards


Hello everyone,

I am trying to solve a system of six equations through a matrix and a vector. The matrix is 6x6, so the function "LinearSolve" should find a solution 

The matrix is

Matrix(6, 6, [[1., -1., 1., -1., 1., -1.], [1., 1., 1., 1., 1., 1.], [-2., 1.618033989, 30.94427190, -153.8246851, 371.1559479, -572.9674774], [-2., 0.6180339876, 22.94427191, -41.15905356, -37.04759741, 149.3606798], [-2., -0.6180339876, 13.05572810, 22.82468509, -20.15594802, -81.03252254], [-2., -1.618033989, 5.055728096, 28.15905368, 68.04759752, 104.6393203]])

and the vector associated with the system is

Vector[column](6, [-1/3, -1, 0, 0, 0, 0])

I am trying to solve this system with

a := LinearSolve(M3, v);

but it stays evaluating.

I have solved a similar system (5x5) with this function (LinearSolve) and it took less than a second, so I dont understand why it takes so long in this case.

Thank you in advance.


I'm a Master student and for my thesis I need to get the following function in Maple with the if then commando (or onother one that will get the same result):

But I didn't find the solution yet.

Can anyone help me out?

Thank you in advance.

Why the expression of lambda[1] is too large? One of the possible values of lambda[1] should be "sqrt(1/(4*omega^2 - 4))*a[-1]".
