## Simplification using a polylog(2,*) iden...

Maple 2019

Why doesn't

f:=ln(s + 2)^2 + 2*polylog(2, -1 - s) + 2*polylog(2, (1 + s)/(s + 2))

simplify to zero assuming s>0?

## Factorizing simple expression...

Maple 2019

How do I get Maple to factorize this simple expression without too much effort?

f:=3/2 + sqrt(8*k + 2) + 2*k

## Maple can't simplify a simple expression...

Maple 2015

So I have this expression

f:=(coth(x)^(1/3)-tanh(x)^(1/3))*(coth(x)^(2/3)+tanh(x)^(2/3)+1)

which Maple can not simplify?

I need to do it like this

Is this actually true or what is happening here?

## Combining Text and Math...

Maple

restart;
The integral int(x, x);
Error, missing operator or `;`

So from this

https://www.maplesoft.com/support/help/maple/view.aspx?path=MaplePortal%2FTutorial2#bkmrk1

I tried to switch between both modes, but I get the error above. Why does it not work? Do I need to consider something else? I'm switching with F5. The text is red and math is 2d math black.

Also the [CTRL]+[=] doesn't work in this german version, since I would need to press

[CTRL]+[SHIFT]+[=] which doesn't work.

## Using series/asympt for RootOf...

Maple 2015

Hello,

How do I tell maple which branch to choose when calculating an asymptotic series of a RootOf expression. e.g.

restart;

sol:=RootOf((8*n-8)*_Z^6+(n^4+36*n^2-68*n+56)*_Z^5+(n^5+10*n^4+80*n^3-200*n^2+224*n-152)*_Z^4+(n^6+28*n^5+69*n^4-268*n^3+468*n^2-356*n+200)*_Z^3+(3*n^7+32*n^6+7*n^5-204*n^4+380*n^3-544*n^2+272*n-128)*_Z^2+(3*n^8+14*n^7-20*n^6-32*n^5+252*n^4-240*n^3+304*n^2-80*n+32)*_Z-n^9-12*n^8-44*n^7-40*n^6-4*n^5-128*n^4+48*n^3-64*n^2);

asympt(sol,n,2);

Now the series contains RootOf(_Z^6-_Z^5) which occurs in the denominator to order 1/n and thus blows up if 0 is chosen. I know that the solution must be greater zero and smaller than n/2.
