Assumed variables get new names, using the old name beta doesn't change the new name I guess.

work-around:

assign(beta,1);

Writing e^x for the exponential function is your error. It is very common among beginners with Maple, and still is found occasionally among experienced users of Maple.

Instead of all those "assumes" I prefer to do it more directly...

p := x^4-4*x^3+2*x^2+3*x;

p := x^4-4*x^3+2*x^2+3*x

solve(p,x);

0, 3, 1/2+(1/2)*5^(1/2), 1/2-(1/2)*5^(1/2)

%[3];

1/2+(1/2)*5^(1/2)

Did you mean matrices as opposed to Matrices?
As I recall, you can use evalm(A+B) if you don't want to look up the syntax

To see what is going on, start with something simpler and look at the answers. Say:
k := n+p;
j:=subs({p=mu/n},k);
m1:=subs({n=-((sigma)^(2))/(p*(p-1))},j);
v :=subs({n=-((sigma)^(2))/(p*(p-1))},k);
m2 := subs({p=mu/n},v);

In your code, if there is a string 7777 then it counts as only one triple. That is one way to count them...
But does it work right for 777555 or does it miss the second triple?

What he said. Look up "chain rule" in your calculus text. The required conditions should be spelled out.

Formulas: f := sqrt(x) and g := -sqrt(x+4)-18
What next?
Can you plot just one?

For example (x-3)/(x-6)/(x+2)

This bug occurs in the MacOS version of Maple 13.02, too. (Or at least some bug: the dialog flashed on the screen too fast to read, so maybe it wasn't losing connection to kernel.)

The general solution of the Bessel equation is
f(x) = A*BesselJ(v,x)+B*BesselY(v,x)
where A and B are arbitrary constants.
So perhaps the particular f you need has some additional information to let you determine A and B for your case.
For example, if you know that f is continuous at 0, then B=0. (I assumed v is an integer.)

Perhaps with lprint() ? Of course it depends on what you want to get.
