These are questions asked by sursumCorda

There exists a new (?) checkbox  in the Interface tab of the Options dialog: 

But I cannot find any find any explanation about it in the corresponding help page. What is the purpose of this feature? 

If I understand correctly, both of 

int(RETURN(is(y::positive)), y = 0 .. x) assuming 0 <= x, x < 1;
int(RETURN(coulditbe(y = 1)), y = 0 .. x) assuming 0 < x, x < 1;

should output `not`(true). However, Maple simply returns true for the second one. 
Isn't this result incorrect? Or am I missing something?

OEIS A034828 and OEIS A000292 (which give the Wiener index for the cycle graph and the path graph respectively) mention that 

the Wiener index of the cycle of length 19 is 855 and 
the Wiener index of the path with 19 edges is 1330




So what happened here? 

Consider the following exact algebraic number expr




expr := Physics:-`*`(2-(1/2)/(1-(RootOf(16*_Z*(_Z*(2*_Z*(_Z*(8*_Z*(_Z*(_Z*(_Z*(32*_Z*(8*_Z-33)+1513)-812)-13)+267)-1469)-330)+811)+279)+345, index = 2)-1/2)^2), sqrt(1-(1-(1/2)/(1-(RootOf(16*_Z*(_Z*(2*_Z*(_Z*(8*_Z*(_Z*(_Z*(_Z*(32*_Z*(8*_Z-33)+1513)-812)-13)+267)-1469)-330)+811)+279)+345, index = 2)-1/2)^2))^2))+Physics:-`*`(Physics:-`*`(3+Physics:-`*`(4, 1-(1/2)/(1-(RootOf(16*_Z*(_Z*(2*_Z*(_Z*(8*_Z*(_Z*(_Z*(_Z*(32*_Z*(8*_Z-33)+1513)-812)-13)+267)-1469)-330)+811)+279)+345, index = 2)-1/2)^2)), 1/12), sqrt(3-Physics:-`*`(4, (1-(1/2)/(1-(RootOf(16*_Z*(_Z*(2*_Z*(_Z*(8*_Z*(_Z*(_Z*(_Z*(32*_Z*(8*_Z-33)+1513)-812)-13)+267)-1469)-330)+811)+279)+345, index = 2)-1/2)^2))^2)))+Physics:-`*`(Physics:-`*`(2, Physics:-`*`(2-(1/2)/(1-(RootOf(16*_Z*(_Z*(2*_Z*(_Z*(8*_Z*(_Z*(_Z*(_Z*(32*_Z*(8*_Z-33)+1513)-812)-13)+267)-1469)-330)+811)+279)+345, index = 2)-1/2)^2), 1/3)), sqrt(Physics:-`*`(Physics:-`*`(2, 2-(1/2)/(1-(RootOf(16*_Z*(_Z*(2*_Z*(_Z*(8*_Z*(_Z*(_Z*(_Z*(32*_Z*(8*_Z-33)+1513)-812)-13)+267)-1469)-330)+811)+279)+345, index = 2)-1/2)^2)), 1-Physics:-`*`(2, 1-(1/2)/(1-(RootOf(16*_Z*(_Z*(2*_Z*(_Z*(8*_Z*(_Z*(_Z*(_Z*(32*_Z*(8*_Z-33)+1513)-812)-13)+267)-1469)-330)+811)+279)+345, index = 2)-1/2)^2)))))+Physics:-`*`(Physics:-`*`(1+Physics:-`*`(2, 1-(1/2)/(1-(RootOf(16*_Z*(_Z*(2*_Z*(_Z*(8*_Z*(_Z*(_Z*(_Z*(32*_Z*(8*_Z-33)+1513)-812)-13)+267)-1469)-330)+811)+279)+345, index = 2)-1/2)^2)), 1/6), sqrt(Physics:-`*`(2, (1/4)/(1-(RootOf(16*_Z*(_Z*(2*_Z*(_Z*(8*_Z*(_Z*(_Z*(_Z*(32*_Z*(8*_Z-33)+1513)-812)-13)+267)-1469)-330)+811)+279)+345, index = 2)-1/2)^2)^2-Physics:-`*`(3, (1-(1/2)/(1-(RootOf(16*_Z*(_Z*(2*_Z*(_Z*(8*_Z*(_Z*(_Z*(_Z*(32*_Z*(8*_Z-33)+1513)-812)-13)+267)-1469)-330)+811)+279)+345, index = 2)-1/2)^2))^2)))):

type(mp, polynom(rational, _X))




I would like to find its minimal polynomial (without a priori knowledge). 

According to the documentation, 

if is an exact algebraic number, and and are not given, then PolynomialTools:-MinimalPolynomial(expr) will call  to compute an exact minimal polynomial of . If a name is not specified for the variable , then  will be used.

Regretfully, it is easy to see that the minimal polynomial of expr cannot be the returned 27*_X^2 + 70*_X - 433. And when I invoke  directly, the result is still not correct (and this evaluation takes a rather long time). 
Another help page mentions that 

the call mp := evala(Minpoly(expr, _X)) computes the monic minimal polynomial of  in the variable  over the field of rational numbers (or multivariate rational functions); the resulting polynomial will not contain any algebraic numbers or functions.

However, as type(mp, polynom(rational, _X)) gives , we know that cannot be the desired minimal polynomial of expr either. 
So, what is the proper way to compute the minimal polynomial of expr in Maple? 


use alpha=1-(1/2)/(1-(RootOf(16*_Z*(_Z*(2*_Z*(_Z*(8*_Z*(_Z*(_Z*(_Z*(32*_Z*(8*_Z-33)+1513)-812)-13)+267)-1469)-330)+811)+279)+345,index=2)-1/2)**2) in 

Of note, the minimal polynomial of an algebraic number zeta is the unique irreducible monic polynomial of smallest degree p(x) with rational coefficients such that p(zeta)=0 and whose leading coefficient is 1

As the following worksheet shows,

the underlined part is evidently not the simplest. (For instance, shouldn't RealDomain:-simplify(x2^2 - 2*x2*x3 + x3^2 + (y2 - y3)^2, 'size') and RealDomain:-simplify((x2-x3)*x1-x2*x4+x3*x4+(y2-y3)*(y1-y4), 'size') be converted into RealDomain:-simplify((x2 - x3)^2 + (y2 - y3)^2, 'size') and RealDomain:-simplify((x2 - x3)*(x1 - x4) + (y2 - y3)*(y1 - y4), 'size')?) 
If I understand correctly, , by default, should try combining every part of an expression with every other to apply a vast range of potential transformations to look at many different forms of it and make progress in picking out the simplest possible one. So, why is simplify unable to touch certain sub-expressions when they are encountered at intermediate stages in a computation?
