Maple is to me difficult. The first version I bought was Maple9, and it was more than 15 years ago. But, I couldn't use it, feeling it too difficult. But, three years ago, I thought Maple might be helpful to my study, and since then, I have continued to learn Maple. As I got able to read the Maple help, I think that I could get to use maple better now than before. But, I feel that I am a beginner yet.

Hello people in MaplePrimes,

I can't understand a code with PLOT3D using GRID in it.
I hope you will give me explanation about it.


I cannot understand the correspondence between points in the graph and lists in the code such as [1,2,10], [1,1,8].

 As two ranges in GRID augments in the code are 1..2 and 1..3, x takes value from 1 to 2, and
y from 1 to 3 in the picture.
And, as k is k:=[[1,2,10],[1,1,8],[0,1,5],[0,0,6]], which means this list of lists are 4 X 3, so in the picture
as for x the interval of 1 to 2 is divided to three sections with the points of value of 0, 1/3, 2/3 and 3/3, which total number is 4.
And, as for y the interval of 1 to 3 is devided to two sections with the points of value of 1, 2 and 3, which total number is 3.

And, I cannot understand why from the grid of [1,1,8] in the code, which I think is the coodinate of (1, 1) on x-y plane, does not mean that the value of z on that point on the graph is not 8, but 1.


Hello people in Mapleprimes,
I haven't written in this site for a long time.

I have a question in the below program, which is to write ribbons.
For the implementation of this program, 
I wrote this.
ribbonplot5([cos, sin, cos + sin], -Pi .. Pi,numpoints=20);

In the part of pattern matching, as -Pi .. Pi above is a range, so it is OK.
But, when I changed this part to x=-Pi..Pi, an error message appears.

ribbonplot5([cos, sin, cos + sin],x=-Pi .. Pi,numpoints=20);

brings error messages:
"Warning, unable to evaluate the function to numeric values in the region; see the plotting command's help page to ensure the calling sequence is correct"

In the code of ribbonplot5,  x=-Pi..Pi which is the type of name=range shoud satisfy the pattern matching, as I wrote in the first part of the program as 
ribbonplot5 := proc(Flist, r1::{range,name=range})

I cannot know why the part of the program:
" else
       newFlist := map(unapply, Flist, lhs(r1));
     opts := ['labels'=[lhs(r1), " "," "],
                 args[3 .. nargs]];

wouldn't work well.

I wish I could get an answer to this. 

Thanks in advance.

This is a program in maple9 Advanced Programming Gude p. 253


extend := proc(f)
     local x, y;
     unapply(f(x), x, y);
end proc:

ribbonplot5 := proc(Flist, r1::{range,name=range})
     local i, m, p, n, opts,newFlist;
     opts := [args[3 .. nargs]];
     if type(r1, range) then
         if not hasoption(opts, 'numpoints', 'n', 'opts')
         then n := 25
         end if; 
         m := nops(Flist);
         p := seq(plot3d(extend(Flist[i]), r1, (i-1) .. i,
                                  grid=[n, 2], op(opts)),
                       i = 1 .. m):
       newFlist := map(unapply, Flist, lhs(r1));
     opts := ['labels'=[lhs(r1), " "," "],
                 args[3 .. nargs]];
   end if:
end proc:
ribbonplot5([cos, sin, cos + sin], -Pi .. Pi,numpoints=20);

Dear people in mapleprims,

I haven't used maple for a long time.
By the way, I tried to modify a denominator part in an fractional expression, but I couldn't.

Original expression is 


#And, I want to change this to the form


How can I do this?

Thank you in advance.

Hello people in mapleprimes,

I could modify an expression e_n_1b to simpler e_n_1e as is in attached file.
Is there any other way to change e_n_1b into e_n_1e?


Thank you in advance.



Hello people in Mapleprimes,

A long time has passed since I came here before.
I have forgotten a lot of what I remembered about maple.

I want to incert gamma from e_nsp1 and (1-gamma) from e_nsp2 into set_3, so deleting gamma and (1-gamma) from set_3.
How can I do this?

Thank you in advance.

Take care.
