i want to solve this equation,

y''(x)=5*exp(-10/y'(x)) on ]0,15[ with y(0)=0,y(15)=2 

can any one help me ? thank you


I have question. How can I rotate this 2-D plot and create 3-D plot?


Thank you.

Respected member!

Please help me in finding the solution of this problem....










r := .2:

k := 5;



BCSforNum1 := u(0) = 0, (D(u))(0) = 1+beta*(((D@@2)(u))(0)-(D(u))(0)*RealDomain:-`^`(k, -1)), (D(u))(m) = 0, ((D@@2)(u))(m) = 0;

u(0) = 0, (D(u))(0) = 1+.2*((D@@2)(u))(0)-0.4000000000e-1*(D(u))(0), (D(u))(6) = 0, ((D@@2)(u))(6) = 0


v(0) = 1, v(6) = 0


numsol1 := dsolve({BCSforNum1, BCSforNum2, ODEforNum1, ODEforNum2}, numeric, output = listprocedure)

Error, (in dsolve/numeric/bvp) initial Newton iteration is not converging





Dear community, 

I'm new to maple and was wondering if you could help me out.

I have this curve where I want to make a line that goes from x=0.5 up to its value on the curve in this case 1.60 and then all the way to the y-axis so there is an area under the curve which I can color if that's even possible?

I have the following in maple:

k := 2.5;
Ca0 := 1;
v := 20;
Ca := Ca0*(1-x);
                             1 - x
Fa0 := Ca0*v;
Cb := Ca0*x;
ra := k*Ca*Cb;
                         2.5 (1 - x) x
plot(1/ra, x = 0 .. 1);

thank you for your help

Best Regards


I recently encontered a very strange result.

Lets define the procedure:

Fg := proc(x0,y0)
if (x0>=0)and(x0<=3) and (y0<=x0+2) and (y0>=x0-1) and (y0>=0) and (y0 <=3) then
return y0*(3-y0)*x0*(3-x0)*(x0+2-y0)*(y0-x0+1);
return 0;
end if:
end proc:

The plot looks like needed:

plot3d('Fg'(x,y), x=0..3, y=0..3);

But integration returns weird result:

evalf(Int('Fg'(x,y), [x=0..1, y=0..2.1]));


evalf(Int('Fg'(x,y), [x=0..1, y=0..2.2]));

Error, (in evalf/int) when calling 'Fg'. Received: 'cannot determine if this expression is true or false: 0 <= x and x <= 3 and y <= x+2 and x-1 <= y and 0 <= y and y <= 3'

hi...i have a problem with pdsolve this equations?

please help me.


Maple Worksheet - Error

Failed to load the worksheet /maplenet/convert/ .



Consider substutition with use of a function:

subs(F(x,y)=f(x)+g(y), F(x,y));

As expected, Maple returns the proper answer:



subs(F(x,y)=f(x)+g(y), F(x,x));



How to force Maple recognize F as a function, in order to obtain


in return?

The functions algsubs, applyrule work in the same way.

Hi, I try to create quizes in Maple 2016, but I don't know how to hide the Maple commands. Is it possible?


I'd like my students to see only 


when they access the quiz. Any help will be highly appreciated. Thank you.


I'm trying to solve a Truck Routing Problem. I set in up in Maple and Excel, but I get a smaller minimum in the spreadsheet, than in Maple. Its like as if I havn't generated enough possible routes, even though i feel i've done an exaustive search. I realise the distance matrix violates the triangle inequality.  Any suggestions....

A very big data was imported by me through

data := Import("");


I need to convert it to Vector/Array. Now its type is "string":


Here is my unsuccessful attempt:

Error, invalid input: `convert/Vector` expects its 1st argument, V, to be of type {Array, Matrix, Vector, array, sequential}, but received 3.0994584798345

I am new user of Maple, couldn’t find solution for my problem in the last two days therefore I would like to turn to your community with my question. I am trying to replicate the calculations from a study to be sure about my understanding of the topic.


I cannot simplify the final equation even though the variables with their values are given. A screenshot and the file are attached, that might make easier to understand my problem.

I know what the solution should be. I cannot simplify/replace the values in the equation to get a simpler form; [(D0 - d1c - R)/ 2d1)]+c


Thank you if you have the time to help.



How do I check if there are any solutions to this equation:
where both u and v are real numbers larger than 0.


How can I remove a subset containing a number from a partition?

eg S := [seq(2..5)]

P:=combinat:-setpartition(S, 2);

[[[2, 3], [4, 5]], [[2, 4], [3, 5]], [[2, 5], [3, 4]]]

I want to remove any partition involving 5


[[[2, 3]], [[2, 4]], [[3, 4]]]

i tried




I'm studying for an exam and earlier today I was working in my Maple sheet. I saved it as usual and no .bak file was in the directory afterwards. When I now later in the day tried to open it, I got the pop up message:
"There were problems during the loading process. your worksheet may be incomplete" and half of the content is missing.

I've searched on google and tried to solve it myself, unfortunately without any luck.

I would really appreciate any help.

Best regards

Hi everybody,

I am used to using  the DocumentTools :-RunWorksheet command and I am confronted with the following problem :

  • My worksheet is deemed to generate a plot in a png file
    > plotsetup(png, plotoutput=MyFile, …)
    > plot( …)

    But MyFile is not created
  • Thinking that the mw file launched by  DocumentTools :-RunWorksheet is seen as a procedure, I have thought that print(plot(…)) would fix the issue.
    Unfortunately the png file is still not created (same behavior with a jpeg file)

I know that  DocumentTools :-RunWorksheet is “experimental” but I wonder if I am doing something wrong or if DocumentTools :-RunWorksheet simply does not support plots ?

Thanks in advance
