Here is the code I used to generate the image:


Then, I exported the image in a eps format. When the file is displayed, white lines appear as a grid. The problem comes from Maple and not from the softwares used to visualize the image. I tried so many things to solve that but...


How to solve the problem?


Thank you.



I wish to calculate connection, curvature, Ricci curvature etc. for a

Riemannian metric given as follows: there is an orthogonal frame of vector

fields with stipulated Lie bracket relations between them. The frame is

orthogonal but not orthonormal, and the lengths of its vector fields are functions

of a single function on the manifold. Given these metric values on the frame and the

Lie bracket relations, the covariant derivatives are in principle computable from the

Koszul formula, hence connection and curvature are all determined.

When I try to define the metric using a dual coframe in ATLAS's Metric

routine, it allows me to define it but claims there is not actual curvature.

From the help it seems the coframes used in this routine are always given

as differentials of coordinates. Is there a way to get the metric via the data

given above without putting in by hand all the different Koszul formulas etc.?

If I input 3^665 the whole number is displayed. How to display only last few digits?

When I make the input 2*pi*440 the output is pi880.

How to come to the result 2764,6 radians?


How to turn the above row into complex exponential Fourier series?

For example how to input the mixed fraction 3 1/7? What are keys for super- and subscript?

How to make Maple determine whether the following is a sequence with a rule behind it or just random fractions:

3^893/2^1415, 3^1040/2^1648, 3^2192/2^3474, 3^3776/2^5984, 3^3910/2^6197, 3^5514/2^8739

How should I proceed to convert 2ln(3) -3ln(2)  to trigonometric form in Maple?

Is it possible to construct in Maple the following sequence of ascending fifths?:

3/2, 3^2/2^3, 3^3/2^4, 3^4/2^6, 3^5/2^7, 3^6/2^9, 3^7/2^11, 3^8/2^12 and so on. The result always more than 1 and less than 2.

Given a sequence for example: 8, 32,128,512,2048 and so on. Suppose we do not know it is 2^(2n +1). How to make Maple to find the principle?

In the fraction 3^665/2^x=y, where y is more than 1 and less than 2, I want to know the value of x. What input should I write, please?

As part of the class I am teaching in biofluid mechanics, the students are learning about the Buckingham Pi theory for finding dimensionless groups (pi-groups).  The process involves the dimensions of parameters in terms of their basic units of measure: mass, M, length, L, and time, T.  Fore example, fluid density is M/L3 .  A typical step is to represent a product of parameters in terms of these measures raised to exponents.  Here is an example


where the exponents a,b,c are to be determined. What command(s) will massage this form to look like

Ma+b  L2c-3b-a T-a  ?


I am teaching a course in biofluid mechanics and am looking to help the students get more use out of Maple. Often it is advantageous to scale a differential equation (and initial conditions) using dimensionless variables to reduce the number of free parameters in a problem. For example, the simple linear oscillator differential equation:

Eq(1)         m*d2x(t)/dt2 + k*x(t)=0

where k and m are parameters.  If we define a dimensionless time, s=t/T, and a dimensionless position, X=x/L, where T and L are constants, , Eq(1) becomes

Eq(2)         (mL/T2 ) *d2X(s)/ds2 +  kL*X(s)=0

Then choosing T=sqrt(m/k) we arrive at

Eq(3)         d2X(s)/ds2 +  X(s)=0

which has no parameters.  Can this sequence be done in Maple for a differential equation...i.e. change of variables?


I am writing a textbook in biomedical engineering and using Maple 14 for generating figures.  In many of the graphs, my axis labels have subscripts or superscripts.  For example in a 2D plot statement I type   labels=[x,f[0](x)] which gives a subscript 0.   However, both x and f0(x) appear in italics.  How can I have them appear as normal...i.e. without italics? The labelfont command does not seem to have an instruction to remove the italics.  Can you assist me?


Here below is the code I got problems:


Dens := proc(v)
local theta, r;
        , theta = 0. .. 2*Pi)
    , r = 0. .. v)
) assuming v>=0
end proc;


FitFinalDens := NonlinearFit(
, depth
, veloc
, [u]
, initialvalues = [a = 1.4, b = 0.13]
, parameternames = [a, b]
, output = [leastsquaresfunction, residuals, parametervector]
, parameterranges=[a=1.1..3.0,b=0.02..0.8]


Then, I obtain two sort of errors:

First error message:

Error, (in Statistics:-NonlinearFit) invalid input: no implementation of NonlinearFit matches the arguments in call, 'NonlinearFit(0.13*(1.+1.4*u)*(int(int(4*r/..........



Second error message:

Error, (in Statistics:-NonlinearFit) complex value encountered


So, really I don't known how to correct the code.

I tried a lot  of things such as using  "value" command,  "Re" command, etc.

Do you have a solution?

Sincerely yours.
