## Is there a "partial sorting" command in ...

Maple 2023

In short, I'd like to obtain n largest/smallest elements in a huge list of (probably non-numeric) data. Of cource I can `sort` it and then extract the desired part, yet isn't there a dedicated procedure that do a partial sort of the input data in Maple?

Edit. In a MatLab weblog, the blogger gave:

So I believe that a dedicated one is not useless. But what is the Maple equivalent to MatLab's maxk, mink, and topkrows?

## What is a more efficient way to generate...

Maple 2023

The sequence A161786 consists of “primes with at least one digit appearing exactly four times in the decimal expansion”. Below is the Maple program given in that OEIS page:

The code above picks out primes having exactly four identical digits (determined by ) from the first 10,000 prime numbers. However, it's easy to check that this program is rather slow (It takes about 2.6s to execute it!).
Actually, I would like to select such primes from pn, pn+1, pn+2, …, pn+m-1 (typically, n＝1,000,000 and m＝1,000,000), where pk denotes the k-th prime number, yet the original program failes to do so in twenty minutes. Part of the reason is that for long sequences, the efficiency can be critical. Therefore I make a slight modification to the original code:

```A161786__0 := proc(m::nonnegint, n::posint := 1, ` \$`)::'Vector'(prime):
#(*
kernelopts(opaquemodules = false):
# *)
local p := ifelse(n = 1, 1, ithprime(n - 1)), vec := Vector('datatype' = prime);
to m do
if ormap(`=`, MultiSet(`convert/base`:-MakeSplit(length((p := nextprime(p))), 1, 10)(p)):-hash, 4) then
vec ,= p
fi
od;
vec
end:```

Nevertheless, this version is still inefficient:

```time[real](A161786__0(10**6, 10**6));
=
182.414

```

Another choice is converting each of integers into a string:

```A161786__1 := proc(m::nonnegint, n::posint := 1, ` \$`)::'Vector'(prime):
options no_options:
local p := ifelse(n = 1, 1, ithprime(n - 1)), vec := DEQueue();
to m do
if member(4, rhs~({StringTools['CharacterFrequencies'](nprintf("%d", (p := nextprime(p))), 'digit')})) then
vec ,= p
fi
od;
Vector([vec[]], 'datatype' = prime)
end:```

This time the elapsed time is reduced to nearly two minutes:

```time[real](A161786__1(10**6, 10**6));
=
118.409

```

But can this task be accomplished within (a quarter of) a minute in modern Maple? In other words, is there a way to make further improvement on the performance? (Note that the reference time is mesured using a adjusted version (i.e., ) of the Mma code provided in that OEIS page.)

## Is StringTools['StringBuffer'] outdated ...

Maple 2023

Since strings are not mutable objects in Maple, the package provides two procedures, `StringTools:-OldStringBuffer` and `StringTools:-StringBuffer`, which appear heavily correlated with Java's  and .

The help page of StringBuffer claims that use of a is much more efficient than the naive approach:

```(*
`G` and `F` are taken from the link above.
*)
G := proc()
description "extremely inefficient string concatenator";
local   r;
r := proc()
if nargs = 0 then
""
elif nargs = 1 then
args[ 1 ]
else
cat( args[ 1 ], procname( args[ 2 .. -1 ] ) )
end if
end proc;
r( args )
end proc:
# # This can be transformed into an O(1) algorithm by passing a string buffer to the recursive calls.
F := proc()
description "efficient version of G";
local    b, r;
b := StringTools:-StringBuffer();
r := proc()
if nargs = 1 then
b:-append( args[ 1 ] )
else
b:-append( args[ 1 ] );
procname( args[ 2 .. -1 ] )
end if
end proc;
r( args ):-value()
end proc:
s := 'StringTools:-Random(10, print)' \$ 1e4:
NULL;
time(G(s));
5.375

time(F(s));
1.125

```

But why not use the built-in `cat` directly?

```time(cat(s));
0.

time(StringTools:-Join([s], ""));
0.

```

Clearly, this is even more efficient

Here is the last example in that link.

```FilterFile := proc( fname::string, filter )
local   b, line;
b := StringTools:-StringBuffer();
do
if line = 0 then break end if;
b:-append( filter( line ) )
end do;
b:-value()
end proc: # verbatim
filename__0 := FileTools:-JoinPath(["example", "odyssey.txt"], 'base' = 'datadir'):
/2600.txt.utf-8", "War-and-Peace.txt"):

fclose(filename__0):
time[real]((rawRes0 := FilterFile(filename__0, StringTools:-Unique)));
0.223

fclose(filename__1):
time[real]((rawRes1 := FilterFile(filename__1, StringTools:-Unique)));
1.097
```

Nevertheless,

```close(filename__0):
use StringTools, FileTools:-Text in
time[real]((newRes0 := String(Support~(fscanf(filename__0, Repeat("%[^\n]%*c", CountLines(filename__0))))[])))
end;
0.118

close(filename__1):
use StringTools, FileTools:-Text in
time[real]((newRes1 := String(Support~(fscanf(filename__1, Repeat("%[^\n]%*c", CountLines(filename__1))))[])))
end;
0.580

evalb(newRes0 = rawRes0 and newRes1 = rawRes1);
true

```

As you can see, these experiments just tell an opposite story. Isn't the so-called "StringBuffer" obsolete today

## Unable to accurately solve an ODE BVP wi...

Maple 2023

Delay differential equations in Chebfun lists 15 examples "taken from the literature". Many of them can be (numerically) solved in Maple without difficulty, yet when I attempt to solve the  in the above link, Maple's internal solver ``dsolve/numeric`` just halts with an error.

```plots:-odeplot(dsolve({D(u)(t) + u(t)**2 + 2*u(1/2*t) = 1/2*exp(t), u(0) = u(1/3)}, type = numeric, range = 0 .. 1/3), size = ["default", "golden"]);
Error, (in dsolve/numeric) delay equations are not supported for bvp solvers
```

Even if I guess an initial (or final) value artificially, the solution is still less reliable (For instance, what is the approximate endpoint value? 0.26344 or 0.2668?):

```restart;
dde := D(u)(t) + u(t)**2 + u(t/2)*2 = exp(t)/2:
x__0 := 2668/10000:
sol0 := dsolve([dde, u(0) = x__0], type = numeric, 'delaymax' = 1/6, range = 0 .. 1/3):
plots['odeplot'](sol0, [[t, u(t)], [t, x__0]], 'size' = ["default", "golden"]);

x__1 := 26344/100000:
sol1 := dsolve([dde, u(1/3) = x__1], type = numeric, 'delaymax' = 1/6, range = 0 .. 1/3):
plots['odeplot'](sol1, [[t, u(t)], [t, x__1]], size = ["default", "golden"]);

```

Compare:  (Note that the reference numerical solution implies that its minimum should be no less than 0.258 (Is this incorrect?).).

And actually, the only known constraint is simply u(0)＝u(⅓) (so neither value is known beforehand). Can Maple process this boundary condition automatically (that is, without the need for manual preprocessing and in absence of any other prior information)?
I have read the help page How to | Numeric Delay Differential Equations and Numerical Solution of Difficult ODE Boundary Value Problems, but it appears that those techniques are more or less ineffective here. So, how do I solve such a "first order nonlinear 'BVP' with pantograph delay" in Maple?

## Determine if a nested list is completely...

Maple 2023

For instance, “[1, 2, 3]”, “[``([1, 2]), uneval([3])]”, and “[[1, 2], [3, 'NULL']]” are fully rectangular. “[1, 2, [3]]”, “[`[]`(1, 2), [3]]”, and “[[1, 2], [3, NULL]]” are considered nonrectangular, but if we temporarily freeze the "ragged" parts or regard them as a depth-1 container, the corresponding expressions will seem rectangular. `type(…, list(Non(list)))` and `type(…, listlist(Non(list)))` check these, but they do not work for general cases.
To be specific, the desired output should be something like

```IsRectangular([[[l, 2], [3, 4]], [[5, 6], [7, 8]]]);
=
true, 3

IsRectangular([[[O, l, 2], [3, 4]], [[5, 6], [7, 8]]]);
=
false, 2

IsRectangular([[[[l], 2], [3, 4]], [[5, 6], [7, 8]]], 3);
=
true, 3

IsRectangular([[O, [l, 2], [3, 4]], [[5, 6], [7, 8]]], 2);
=
false, 1

```

The results above can be obtained by some observations. However, if the input has deeper levels, evaluating this will be a punishing work:
