Let's say you make a tabulate of plots (using tabulate, because you don't want equal space for your plots as in array-plot etc). Then how should one save or export the final result as one eps or pdf file? When I right click and choose export, it only save one cell of the tabulate alone.



Does it exist a command in the LieAlgebras package to find the list of normal subalgbras of a given finite dimensional Lie algebra?





I used the command "Decompose" for the following trivial 2 dimensional abelian Lie algebra:

This command returns an error:



Error, (in print/_DG) final value in for loop must be numeric or character



Why this issue?





I have the first and second fundamental forms of a surface. The Bonnet theorem tells me that this is enough to determine a surface in Euclidean space. Has this theorem been implemented in Maple?

1. Write a procedure that enables to compute the volume of a cone. Remember that a cone volume can be calculated using the following equation:

𝑉𝑜𝑙𝑐𝑜𝑛𝑒 =1/3𝜋𝑟2ℎ
with r and h generated randomly, both in the range from -100 to 100.

If Maple returns negative figures for r and h, ask it to replace these values with their absolute values.

If Maple returns 0 for r and h, Maple asks directly the user to input desired values.

2) With reference to point 2, you have the following matrix:

−65 1 32
1 −12 3

12 −2 2
Write a procedure that chooses randomly two numbers from the above matrix and assigns them to r and h. Then, it compares the two cone volumes and returns the largest value.

I was plotting some 3d stuff and wanted to animate it. I used orientation in the plot3d to get the orientation I wanted. When trying to animate them the orientation is ignored.

Specifically though I'm suing Pk = plot3d(...);
then animate(display, [P1, ..., Pn]);

(more or less, my real code is more complex but that is the idea).

Where can I tell animate to use a specific orientation? I tried adding it to the options of display but it didn't work either. Seems animate and display completely ignore orientation.




I am trying to solve a differential equation numerically. But I am facing some difficulties. It is saying that ODE system has a removable singularity at r = 0. How can I remove the singularity?  Please check the attached figure and try to help.

Version: Maple 2020.1

When i set the color for the gridlines it only seems to be applied for the major-tick gridlines as the following trivial example shows:

plot(sin(t), t = 0 .. Pi, axes = frame, background = "#303030", color = "Orange", axis = [gridlines = [color = "#707070", linestyle = dot]])

I assume it must also be possible to also specify the color for the minor tick-marks gridlines?

The obvious (?) variant "axis=[gridlines = [color = ["#707070", "#707070"] , ... " just seems to crash maple (nothing happens when the plot() expression is evaluated).

I'm unable to find anything in the documentation regarding this and it only seems to imply that the color should be applied to both major & minor gridlines which is not the case.






Hi everyone! Currently I'm studying magnetism, and I was thinking that maybe seeing represented the helix movement of an atom with a vector v parallel to the Magnetic Field B subject to the Force of Lorentz and the Hysteresis cycle created in the magnetazation of a ferromagnetic material could help me understand it more. I tried to create the plots in Maple 2015 but I couldn't.. anyone can help me by creating those two plots?

I notice that when I enter ?convert or ?convertininto the maple prompt, the help window opens once and then ceases to function.

Update. It seems that the problem is not restricted to a specific command, this occurs for any command. To replicate, open help using F1, exit maple help, then open help again using F1. Maple help won't open again. I have to do a hard exit to get it to work again.

Platform details:

I want to plot some oscillating function (function involve sin and cos) as a function to time (t). And when I try a large interval like t=0..1000, it is going to take forever to plot the graph and the system becomes a little laggy. Is there any way I can do to make it compute quickly?

Thank you all

I am currently trying to solve the following ODE using numerical methods:

diff(U(x), x$2) + [(z+ I*y)2/k12 -k22 + ((z+I*y)/k3)*sech(x)^2U(x)

Where the complex value (in this case, omega, has been written as z+Iy). I believe dsolve has capabilities for solving this as an initial value problem with complex values and thus to solve this as a boundary value problem I aim to use fsolve to find a zero other a function which is the (IVP solution) - (the non-initial boundary). This has worked very well for the case where y=0 however does not work for values of y>0, and it seems the problem is with fsolve. Any advice on how to deal with this problem, perhaps alternatives to fsolve? 

One of the known issues with Maple GUI (written in Java) is that it is slow.

When I run a long script, which prints few lines to the screen for each step (to help tell where it is during a long run), and if there are 20,000 steps to run which takes 2 days to finish), then the worksheet and I think all of Maple seem to slow down. May be due to GUI trying to flush output to worksheet which now has lots of output. 

I noticed when I terminate the loop in the middle and then clear the worksheet from the output and start it again from where it stopped, then it runs/scrolls much faster initially untill the worksheet starts to fill up. 

The problem is that one can no longer do Evaluate->Remove output from worksheet as worksheet is busy. This option becomes grayed out.

Is there a trick to bypass this limitation? It will be really nice to be able to clear output from worksheet while it is running.  I do not understand why a user can not do this now even if worksheet is running. In Mathematica for example, this is possible to clear the output while notebook is busy running. Not in Maple.

ps. I want to try to change my program to print output to external file instead to the worksheet and then can monitor the output progress using that file outside of Maple to see if this helps with performance.

This is until Maplesoft adds support to allow one to clear worksheet while it is busy.

Using Maple 2020.1 on windows. Using worksheet mode, not document mode.

Hello friends

I am a PhD student at the University of Miskolc (Hungary). I am writing to asking for help.

considering that my matrix is correct (based on Article 1) and I have all the values needed:

-  From Article 2, How can I plot the graph of Figure 2 and Figure 3 in a logarithmic scale (X-axis) and linear scale (Y-axis). Also, how can I plot the mode shapes of Figure 7 and Figure 8?

I tried to do it (below) but I am not sure it is correct.
