I would like to have my calculus results in its simplified form; below are some of the scenarios that can explain this.



As you can see the results are much simplified and in reduced form compared to what Maple gives. This has been tested for all integrals with roots and integrals with trigonometry functions. Is there any workaround in Maple that I would use to get it like the textbook result.



I am not unfamiliar with the Wolfram syntax but also not very good with it, and there is a particular element in a Mathematica code I have been given which I do not entirely understand how to efficiently write in Maple. The basic idea is to read in a list of expressions from an external file (LIST) and process the non zero elements and assign them to a function (COEF) which can be called later on. Here is the Mathematica exert:

k = 0;
i = 0;
a = b = \[Theta];
Do[k = k + 1; KK = LIST[[k]]; 
  If[KK =!= 0, i = i + 1; ff = Factor[KK]; 
   COEF[x,y, z, l_, m_, n_] = ff], {z, -2, 
   2}, {y, -2, 2}, {x, -2, 2}];

The LIST has the following form and only contains l, m and n and another factor E which is left undefined for now. It does not contain x, y or z. The LIST can contain any number of terms depending on the problem. Here is an example:

LIST={0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, a^2 b m (-1 + n) n (a^2 + b^2 - 2 E), ... ,0,0, a^3 n(l+1+m) ... }

So the Do loop cycles through the LIST and extracts out the non zero terms. What I am unsure about is how it is looping over x,y and z when they do not appear in the LIST at all. I assume it is attaching a x,y,z combination to each COEF and they can be called like this:


For the instance of when x=0, y=1, z=1, l=0, m=2 n=3. Is this correct? What would be the best way to replicate this in Maple?

Ì am trying to convert this [APOh.txt] originally coded for mathematica to maple. In mathematica i ran into severa problems in ploting the function etc.. Anyhow so far failed. The code calls inputs from the followin text document [APO-48-10.txt] I am new to maple and its still unfamiliar. Is this possible to convert to maple?


Maple can't translate this valid Mathematica expression, it gives error

eq:=FromMma(`x^2(a+y[x])^2 y'[x]==(1+x^2)(a^2+y[x]^2)`);

Error, (in MmaTranslator:-FromMma) The form, a^b^c, is found in the expression. It means either (a^b)^c or a^(b^c). Please use parentheses to clarify the meaning

But there is nothing wrong with the above expression. It is valid Mathematica expression. I found why Maple is confused. It needed a SPACE after the first x^2. So the following works in Maple

eq:=FromMma(`x^2 (a+y[x])^2 y'[x]==(1+x^2)(a^2+y[x]^2)`);

And now the error went away.  But a space not needed in Mathematica. It works either way.

Is this a bug?

hypergeom([1, -1, 1/2], [-12,-3], 1);
Error, (in hypergeom/check_parameters) function doesn't exist: missing appropriate negative integers in the first list of parameters to compensate the negatives integer(s): [-3], found in the second list.

Yet this hypergeometric series terminates and Maple should be able to handle it, at least according to the Maple help page (the second rule below applies, yet the numerator has a smaller absolute value, so the first rule below applies).

If some   n[i] is a non-positive integer, the series is finite (that is,   F(n, d, z)  is a polynomial in    z).
If some  d[j]  is a non-positive integer, the function is undefined for all non-zero  z, unless there is also a negative upper parameter of smaller absolute value, in which case the previous rule applies.


Interestingly, the Wolfram Mathematica app can evaluate this to 311/312.



The following three commands 

plots:-implicitplot(3*cos(x) = tan(y)^3, x = -Pi .. Pi, y = -(1/2)*Pi-1 .. (1/2)*Pi+1, thickness = 3, crossingrefine = 1, rational = true, signchange = true, resolution = 1000, gridrefine = 2);
plots:-implicitplot(3*cos(x) = tan(y)^3, x = -Pi .. Pi, y = -(1/2)*Pi-1 .. (1/2)*Pi+1, thickness = 3, crossingrefine = 1, rational = true, signchange = false, resolution = 1000, gridrefine = 2);
plots:-implicitplot(3*cos(x) = tan(y)^3, x = -Pi .. Pi, y = -(1/2)*Pi-1 .. (1/2)*Pi+1, thickness = 3, crossingrefine = 1, rational = true, resolution = 1000, gridrefine = 2);

produce the same incorrect plot 

It is clear the sraight lines given by y=Pi/2 and y=-Pi/2 are superfluous. It should be noticed that the Mmma's ContourPlot command without any options produces a correct plot.

Up to


If the solve command does not find any solutions, then if the second argument is a name or set of names, then the empty sequence (NULL) is returned; if the second argument is a list, then the empty list is returned. This means that there are no solutions, or the solve command cannot find the solutions. In the second case, a warning is issued, and the global variable_SolutionsMayBeLost is set to true.

 Let us consider 

solve({x > -Pi, (tan(x)-tan(x)^2)^2-cos(x+4*tan(x)) = -1, x < Pi}, [x]);

We see the command omits the solution x=0 without any warning. It should be noticed that Mathematica solves it, outputting

{{x -> 0}, {x -> 0}}

and the warning

Solve::incs: Warning: Solve was unable to prove that the solution set found is complete.

One may draw a conclusion on her/his own.


As a new user of Maple (Maple 2015), I defined the function:


As x->infinity, f(x) increases monotonically to e, as is known.

In financial applications, this function and related functions are often used to show that periodic compounding converges to continuous compounding as the number of compounding periods grows larger.

However, for certain large values of x, f(x) evaluates to functional values larger than e.  For example:

f(x)|x=31536000. evaluates to 2.74327....

which is greater than e=2.71828...

Also notice that is(f(31536000.)>e) returns true.

This incorrect evaluation makes it difficult to demonstrate to students the principles of and relationship between periodic compounding and continuous compounding.

Some other CAS (Mathematica and HP Prime) evaluate the function correctly while TI Nspire also evaluates the function incorrectly.

The following file demonstrates this behavior of Maple 2015:

Can anyone share any insight to this issue or any errors that I am making.


i have a problem with convert mathematica code in to maple one

i attached maple file .some line have error.please help me for remove error

I resolve the surface flat grinding of a metal pieces in Mathematica, but I would like convert this program in Maple syntaxis. 

Thanks in advance!



I would like to start using maple workbook to manage my projects but i can't figure out the paths. suppose i have a workbook named: WorkBookTest.maple

and inside this i have a folder containing Data in which i have an excel workbook DataTest.xlsx

and also i have a folder containing Documents in which i have a maple worksheet

and also i have a folder containing Code in which i have a mathematica notebook Code.nb


Now inside the maple worksheet, to import the excel data i use the command: Import("this:///Data/DataTest.xlsx")

and it works

Now inside the mathematica workbook, to import the excel data i use the command: Import["this:///Data//DataTest.xlsx"]

and it fails


so if i have other program like mathematica notebook inside maple workbook that wants to call a file with data, how should i define the path?

Hello All,

What is the Maple equivalent command for $MaxNumber/$MinNumber and $MaxMachineNumber/$MinMachineNumber (these should be 10^308/10^-308) found in Mathematica.

I never asked this question before because I do *not* like comparisons between Maple and Mathematica, as I said in a post some months ago.

Best :)



I have the mathematica code given below. I am using Wolfram Mathematica Online.
I am very new to Mathematica. When I put this code, I do not get any output.
It just does not show me anything.

\[Alpha] = 3; F[s_] := Exp[-A*s^(2/\[Alpha])]; integral = Re[Assuming[{A > 0, t > 0, {t, A} \[Element] Reals}, Integrate[F[s]*Exp[s*t] /. s -> I*y, {y, 0, Infinity}]/Pi]]

Can some help me?
