Please I will like to know if there exists any command to isolate the known regular mathematical functions from an expression. For example, given the equation 

I need a means of isolating (ex & sin(v)) from the above expression


How can we export image with minimum size? I plot the solution and then export the image as an .eps file. But when I try to generate the generate the pdf file on Latex, the file size is too large. But when I plot the solutions on Matlab and export the images as .eps file, then Latex generate pdf file with samll size. Why Maple generate images of large sizes?

I am using the Calculus Study Guide and the mathematical notation is half Maple notation and then half typeset notation. I have tried to tweak with Tools>Options>Display settings but it stays the same

For example:

{a[n]}[n = n[0]]^infinity;, where 

 is the general term for the sequence, and 

 is the starting index.
The notation is often shortened to {a[n]}; to save printing costs.

...and the math notation past the word "where" is in typeset notation but changed to Maple Notation when I cut and pasted.

Thank You in advance.

Please how can I define two sequences in a procedure with two arguments?

  ans:= Array([seq( [j, doCalc(j, u)], j=-2..0, 0.006, u=1..334)]):

The procedure is doCalc(j,u)  and I received this error: invalid input: seq expects between 1 and 3 arguments, but received 4

How to replace 7th-row(second last) of the matrix H116 (see eq. (14)) with the 1st-row of the matrix H16 (see eq. (15)) and create a new matrix of size same as H116?

Hi! Can anyone show me a quick example of a procedure with local and global variables?!? It seems that i'm not getting the hang of it, because i keep receiving "unable to parse" messages. 

During evaluating psi0 (see eq, (7))why we need two values of f (i.e., f,0 and f,3)? I asked one of my seniors and according to him these values are arbitrary. Can anyone explain why we need two values and why f,0 and f,3?  

Hi, Maple users 

I hope you are doing well.
Here I solved one of the ode problems by dsolve.
But I am getting  "Error, invalid subscript selector" error.
Kindly do the needful to find a solution.
Thank you.

 I want to plot phase portrait but i get some errors. I didn't understand errors? Can anyone help me?

I have been studying the solutions of the equation below using Maple and Mathematica. 

Here, I want to express the solutions for k. In Maple, the solution is imaginary. As one may see below.

On the other hand, if one solves that  exact equation with Mathematica, then one has real solutions. That is,

Based on the above, I have a few questions:

1. What is the correct solution for the first equation above? That is, are the solutions real or complex?

2. How may I obtain the real solutions, k_{1,2}, above using Maple?

Attached below you may find my mwfile with my doubts.

Thanks in advance.

Hi! I'm having doubts about the "automatic spacing" in maple. I would like to know two things:

1-can incorrect spacing ruin my code? (Ex by typing "spacebar" too many times )

2- i know that to type spacebar is obligatory after: proc()" "...end proc;    Is there any other situation in wich to use spacebar isn't optional? Thanks for your answers

I want to reverse a catenated expression (eg. xxtt ->x,x,t,t). I don't know the command to achieve this. Anyone with an idea please help


Hi! I've got a set of subsets S with Abeing the i-subset. I need to sum up all the x's in all the Ai's. How can this be achieved?


sum( { {a, b, c}, {a, b, d} } )= 2a+2b+c+d


I am writing an arrow procedure and will like to know if there is a way to implement the following 

bj := (G, y) ->  (`@`(seq((t -> u -> v -> G(u, t) - v)(args[1 + nargs - i]), i = 1 .. nargs - 2)))(y)
bj(F, y, a, b, c, d);
v:=[p, q, r, s]
the output

My question is, how can I replace the v with each element of the list to get the following as output

Aany suggestion will be highly appreciated


Hi! I'm new to Maplesoft. I would like to use it for my research. However, in order to do so, i have to construct an n-dimensional vector space, with vectors of the form A_1*B, A_2*B, ..., A_k*B, where A_i is a set of  n components from a Field (or ring) and B is the basis for the vector space.

It would REALLY help if you could give some ideas for me to bring this up, or else i will be forced to typset every one of the vectors i'll use in a matrix-multiplication form and will make considerably harder my work.
