hi.i have problem for dsolve equation.please help me again


I am trying to use Maple 18 to do some computations with matrices over a ring of polynomials in one variable over the integers $\mathbb{Z}[x]$, or the corresponding field of fractions $\mathbb{Q}(x)$.


The matrices in question are of dimension approximately 5000 and are sparse. The algorithm requires at least as many matrix multiplications as the dimension of the space.

Doing some small examples, of dimension 674, with a laptop (i7-3520 M CPU @2.9GHz with 8GB of Ram) gave the following disappointing result:




When a colleague with access to a Mathematica license performed an identical calculation using sparse matrices in Mathematica, we found that Mathematica performed the calcuation in fractions of a second.


In small dimensional examples, constructing the matrices over the field of fractions as sparse in Maple 18 resulted in a four fold decrease in the already disappointing performance of the LinearAlgebra package in Maple 18.


Is there any way to improve the computational performance of Maple 18 for symbolic linear algebra? Alternatively, is the performance of Maple 2015 for symbolic linear algebra noticably better than Maple 18?


Thanks in advance.




Hi everyone,

I would like to create an eBook with the pakage "eBookTools", but I have got several errors if in my mw document there is a table. The same error came out if I try to compile a book with the sample documents (""). Anyone knows a solution?

Thank you for your time








hi.may  help me for solve this nonlinear equations by numeric solver maple39.d39.pdfocx39.pdf

thanks alot

file format is pdf and word type


I'm writing an algorithm that takes a while and I'd like to print status messages periodically. I typically use the command line interface, and this is no problem. I just do a printf whenever I need.

However, some people who will use this code prefer to use the GUI, and I've found that the GUI tends to buffer the output from printf, printing 20-30 printf statements in clumps instead of as they're called. Is there any remedy for this?

Trying to get this function to work in Maple 18 


I am trying to creat a way to solve matrix differential equations step by step.


I have started to use Maple 18 and I have found that my scale starts at 2.*10^16 for all functions I graph no matter if its 3D or 2D. Is there a way to change this scale?

Dears, When I run calculation in Maple I found an error in matrices. See the file


how to get maple to do linear algebra in Z_2 (integers modulo 2)

I don't want it to solve and then reduce mod 2 I want it to work over Z_2 so basis([ [1,1,1], [1,-1,1 ]) = [1,1,1]  etc

Hi, I know this has been asked ( and answered before) but when I installed this package and pressed ?globalsearch the help page is do I get it?

y'(t)=1-y'(t-y(t)^2 /4),      t>=0

with initial function

y(t)=1+t,   0<=t<=1

please solve

The model of fixed-bed adsorption column

Fluid phase:

PDE:= diff(U(x, tau),tau)+ psi*Theta*diff(U(x, tau),x)-(1/Pe)*psi*Theta*diff(U(x, tau),$(x, 2))=-3*psi*xi*(U(x, tau)-Q/K);


IBC:={U(x, 0) = 0,U(0, tau) = 1+(1/Pe)*(D[1](U))(0, tau),(D[1](U))(1, tau)=0};


PDE:= diff(Q(r, tau), tau) = diff(Q(r, tau), $(r, 2))+(2/r)*diff(Q(r, tau),r);

IBC:={Q(r, 0) = 0,(D[1](Q))(0, tau) = 0,(1/K)*(D[1](Q))(1, tau)=xi*(U-Q(1, tau)/K)};





I will really appreciate your help. Thanks in anticipation.

I can;t seem to get DSOLVE working.  Will some kindly soul please send me a complete example, starting with an f(x) & clearly documented?   Many thanks.
