I'm new using maple and I trying to solve this equation:

u*(diff(u*(diff(R(u), u)), u))-(-m^2+u^2+fu)*R(u) = 0

Maple give this solution:

R(u) = _C1*BesselI(sqrt(-m^2+fu), u)+_C2*BesselK(sqrt(-m^2+fu), u)

But I don't know how I can find de constant C1 and C2.

Thanks in advance.


I am practicing with some diff equations. I am having problem solving for one of the constants. I am having a pproblem assigning a value to derivatives or 2nd derivatives. What is a good general technique is this type of situation?




omega^2 = g/l

omega^2 = g/l


Eq1 := diff(Theta(t), t, t) = -omega^2*Theta(t)

diff(diff(Theta(t), t), t) = -omega^2*Theta(t)


ics := Theta(0) = 0, (diff(Theta(t), t))(0) = Vmax, (diff(Theta(t), t, t))(0) = 0

Theta(0) = 0, (diff(Theta(t), t))(0) = Vmax, (diff(diff(Theta(t), t), t))(0) = 0


SHM := dsolve({Eq1, ics})


SHM := dsolve({Eq1})

{Theta(t) = _C1*sin(omega*t)+_C2*cos(omega*t)}


SHM := dsolve({Eq1, Theta(0) = 0})

Theta(t) = _C1*sin(omega*t)



diffSHM := diff(SHM, t)

diff(Theta(t), t) = _C1*omega*cos(omega*t)



(Theta(t))(0) = 0, (diff(Theta(t), t))(0) = V

(Theta(t))(0) = 0, (diff(Theta(t), t))(0) = V











I am performing the int operation on an experssion but it does not consider constants to be constants. For example, maple is considering this constant namely, f'(-1) or eval(diff(f(x), x), x=-1) as a function and henceforth does not give the desired output. Please tell me how to make eval(diff(f(x), x), x=-1) as a constant function or to say, how to convert any given function in to a constant function.

Thank you for your time and help!

Hello guys ...

I used a numerically method to solve couple differential equation that it has some boundary conditions. My problem is that some range of answers has 50% error . Do you know things for improving our answers in maple ?

my problem is :



suggestion method by preben Alsholm:

a,b,c,d,e,j,h are constants.suppose some numbers for these constants . I used this code:



I used digits for my code at the first of writting.

please help me ... what should i do?

How do I find the constants in a solution containing whittaker functions?

the boundary conditions are:







Hello everybody,

While doing a document about quantum mechanics, I stumble on this strange behaviour.


Error message:

Error, (in ScientificConstants:-GetValue) `a[0]` is not a scientific constant object

But in the Assistant Scientific Constant, the value is there: 5.291772e-11m

Why is it not directly available like I did the first time?

Thank you in advance for your help.

Let d be the Feigenbaum delta constant 4.66920160910299067185320382046620161..., a be the Feigenbaum alpha constant 2.50290787509589282228390287321821578... and m be the MRB constant 0.18785964246206712024851793405427323....

d*m - 2 (600 a - 2537)/(5 a - 2373) = 9.232940534412995...*10^-19

or you could write

1/10*(d*m + 564446/(2373 - 5 a)) - 24 = 9.232940534412995...*10^-20

On May 17, 2013 I finished a 2,000,000 or more digit computation of the MRB constant, using only around 10GB of RAM. It took 37 days 5 hours 6 minutes 47.1870579 seconds. You can write for the digits.
The program I used was based on Richard E. Crandall's work:

Hello, I have a problem with plotting graphs with a constant.. I have one system of equations and one another equation:






I need to compare theit curves.

k and C are constants. I thought it is alright if I would remove constants, BUT there is one in the power, so I have no idea what to do.. 

I just tried to plot the system, but it doesn't work either:

I have a model with 3 parameter blocks containing a lot of constants. I would like to know how can i print those lists to papper, .pdf, word or something like that.



I'm solving a system of 3 second order ODE's for 3 unknown functions, using dsolve. But in the output, I receive various sets of solutions which contain only 3 constants of integration. A friend solved the same system but in Mathematica, and received more constants of integration. 

I guess this has to do with the issue that Maple omits additive constants of integration almost everywhere. 

Is there some solution? i.e. some way of using...

The MRB constant can be computed in Maple by evalf(sum((-1)^n*(n^(1/n)-1),n=1..infinity)).

On my laptop restart; st := time(); evalf(sum((-1)^n*(n^(1/n)-1), n = 1 .. infinity), 500); time()-st gives a timming of 37.908 seconds.

Using the procedure posted at the bottom of this message st := time(); A037077(500); time()-st gives a much faster timing of 1.903 seconds.

My fastest timing for 500 digits of MRB comes from my...

A better approximation gives more digits of accuracy in the result per digit of precision used in the computation than a good approximation does.  I was wondering if anyone could come up with a better approximation to the MRB constant than 31/165,
