The representation of the tangent plane in the form of a square with a given length of the side at any point on the surface.

The equation of the tangent plane to the surface at a given point is obtained from the condition that the tangent plane is perpendicular to the normal vector. With the aid of any auxiliary point not lying on this normal to the surface, we define the direction on the tangent plane. From the given point in this direction, we lay off segments equal to half the length of the side of our square and with the help of these segments we construct the square itself, lying on the tangent plane with the center at a given point.

An examples of constructing tangent planes at points of the same intersection line for two surfaces.

i am trying to write the differential equation 

u_{t}=u_{xx}+2u^{2}(1-u) in my maple 15. 

but it shows error,

Error, empty number and  1 additional error.


I need to solve system of 6 non linear equations. 

Down here you can see the code I wrote and at the end used to fsolve function, and it is not running. I get an error about the const 'V': Error, (in fsolve) V is in the equation, and is not solved for.

What is the right way to solve this system?

Thank you very much!



omega1 := 1.562;
omega2 := 2.449;
omega3 := 3.325;
y1 := c1*sin(omega1*t+phi1)+c2*sin(omega2*t+phi2)+c3*sin(omega3*t+phi3);



y2 := .1019*c1*sin(omega1*t+phi1)+.75*c2*sin(omega2*t+phi2)+.4608*c3*sin(omega3*t+phi3);



y3 := .407*c1*sin(omega1*t+phi1)+(0*c2)*sin(omega2*t+phi2)+1.844*c3*sin(omega3*t+phi3);
eq1 := subs(t = 0, y1) = 0;
eq2 := subs(t = 0, y2) = 0;
eq3 := subs(t = 0, y3) = 0;
eq4 := subs(t = 0, diff(y1, t)) = V;
eq5 := subs(t = 0, diff(y2, t)) = 0;
eq6 := subs(t = 0, diff(y3, t)) = 0;



eqs := [eq1, eq2, eq3, eq4, eq5, eq6];
vars := [c1, c2, c3, phi1, phi2, phi3];
fsolve({eq1, eq2, eq3, eq4, eq5, eq6}, {c1, c2, c3, phi1, phi2, phi3});


Dear, I am facing the problem for solvin the attached file. Solution obtained for L=1 successfully but i need the solution for large value of L e.g., L =10. Please find the attachement and fix the problem. I am waiting positive response. Thanks in advance.


Dear I want to solve the system of ODEs in attached file for different values of m1 i.e., 3,4,5 how I will use the value of m1 in dsolve. I am waiting your positive response thanks in advance.



Hope you would be fine. I want to solve the following PDEs by numerically for v[nf]=alpha[nf]=Ec=mu[nf]=C=1 and Pr=6.2

Eq1 := diff(u(x, t), t) = v[nf]*(diff(u(x, t), x, x));

Eq2 := diff(u(x, t), t) = alpha[nf]*(diff(theta(x, t), x, x))/Pr+Ec*mu[nf]*C*(diff(u(x, t), x))^2;

ICs := u(x, 0) = 0, theta(x, 0);

BCs := u(0, t) = 1, theta(0, t) = 1, u(10, t) = 0, theta(10, t) = 0;

and find the values of (diff(u(0, t), x))/(1-phi)^2.5 for different values of phi. Thanks in advace 

With my best regards and sincerely.

any idea for my problem?


> k1 := sum(X[h, t], t = 1 .. 23) >= 9;
9 <= X[h, 1] + X[h, 2] + X[h, 3] + X[h, 4] + X[h, 5] + X[h, 6]

   + X[h, 7] + X[h, 8] + X[h, 9] + X[h, 10] + X[h, 11] + X[h, 12]

   + X[h, 13] + X[h, 14] + X[h, 15] + X[h, 16] + X[h, 17]

   + X[h, 18] + X[h, 19] + X[h, 20] + X[h, 21] + X[h, 22]

   + X[h, 23], h = 1 .. 6

why 'h' still 'h'. from my textbooks the formula must be like this :

how will i go about solving this problem, i want to return somthing like this (this anwser is from another function that did not contain sin, and therefor did not gave me problems).

thx in advance

I've made a system of two equations:

eq1:= x^2+y^2=0.314

eq2:= y=0.05180967688x

The first is a circle while the second is a line. I use the command fsolve in order to get the intersection and i get:


I need to use these results as the coordinates of a pointplot, how can i do it? Is there a way to isolate x and y?


yVal := 0.01

xVal := 0.01

p8 := plot([fdiff(('rhs')((pds:-value(f(x, y)))(x, yVal)[3]), [y, y], x = z)], z = 0 .. 20, color = [red])

I cant seem to plot the graph for yVal, but if I were to switch it around to (xVal,y), the graph works perfectly. How should I input the code such that I can obtain the f''(x,0) graph. 

Any help will be greatly appreciated :) thanks


Given f(x)=2x^2-4x, how do I define and plot the functions f(x), 2f(x), 4f(x), -f(x) and -4f(x) in maple 15?

Thank You.


The distance from the point to the surface easily calculated using the NLPSolve of Optimization package. If the point is not special, we will find for it a point on the surface, the distance between these two points is the shortest between the selected point and the surface.
Two examples:  the implicit surface and the parametric surface.
To test, we restore the normals from the  calculated  points (red) by using analytical equations.

I can't seem to plot the second derivative graph for f'' versus y. Is it possible to use the fdiff command twice in a line?

Open to all opinions. Any help would be greatly appreciated :)

Hi everyone.

I'm using Maple 15 to try to give random values to a matrix with some columns fixed, the problem is that it has to be unitary, so I managed to create a system of equations (with 36 linear equations and 24 variables) which should give me the information i require.

I have been trying with fsolve, etc. but i haven't been able to solve it yet, as I usually get the error: "Error, (in fsolve) number of equations, 36, does not match number of variables, 24"

Is there any way to find out which equations are neccesary and get rid of the rest of them? Or can Maple give ramdon values to some of the variables and calculate the others?

Thanks in advantage!
