I received my Ph.D. from the University of Pennsylvania in 1998 and I have been teaching since then at SUNY Oneonta for 1 year, at Shepherd University for 5 years, at Tennessee Tech for 2 years, at Lane College for 1 year, and this year I taught at the University of Massachusetts Lowell. My research interests include Representation Theory and Combinatorics.

How come that I don't have a commenter badge?

I'm pretty sure that I left more than 10 comments on this site.

Could comment 10 times to this question if necessary.

How come that I don't have a Maple Questioner Badge? 2886 people question Maple and I trust it unquestionably?

Even adiban who didn't post anything on this site, has it (as well as 10 other badges and a reputation of 1000).

I have a Pupil badge, which I couldn't get without asking a question - so I've asked at least 1 question.

Let's see if I get it after asking this question.



Originally x, renamed x~:
  Involved in the following expressions with properties
    -LambertW(_Z12,abs(x)) assumed RealRange(-infinity,Open(0))
    -LambertW(_Z18,-abs(x)) assumed RealRange(Open(0),infinity)
    -LambertW(_Z20,-abs(x)) assumed RealRange(Open(0),infinity)
    -LambertW(_Z22,abs(x)) assumed RealRange(-infinity,Open(0))
    -LambertW(_Z24,abs(x)) assumed RealRange(-infinity,Open(0...

I didn't use Maple TA myself, but I used a similar program, MyMathLab (from Pearson), and the main problem (and a question) that I have is following - entering any problem in MyMathLab (and Maple TA, I guess) verbatim in Wolfram Alpha produces the correct answer. So what is the point?

Test students' copying and pasting skills?



In 90's Maple was cool. Such things as fi, od, op, nops etc. were cool. They attracted many geeks.

LinearAlgebra:-LA_Main:-ReducedRowEchelonForm, end if, end do, and even ArrayNumElems  are not cool. That may be the reason, together with new Java interface (extremely not cool) why Maple stopped being cool in 2000's.
