These are questions asked by Harry Garst

How can I display in Maple T.A. the content of a matrix as pure text?

Thus instead of

matrix([[1, 2], [3, 4]])

1 2

3 4

Is there a solution without using Mathml and hopefully without using StringTools?

And can I assign the rectangular text display to a variable (including line feeds)?





Does Maple TA work in Windows 10?

My first attempt in Edge and Chrome was not promising.

Maple responds with FALSE, but for which real number is the statement false?

restart; assume(x, 'real');

verify(abs(x), sqrt(x^2), {'equal'});


kind regards,

is it possible to use an animated zoom on a pointplot?

I used the view option (view = [-t .. t, -t .. t]) and animated the t value in a sequence, but it did not work.

kind regards,

Dear Maple experts,

I would like to generate population data that is the best possible approximation of a multivariate normal distribution with a specified covariance matrix and vector of means. I do not want to draw a sample from a multivariate distribution, but I want the population values itself which are approximately multivariate normal distributed. The size of the datamatrix should be limited, otherwise I could draw a huge sample from a multivariate normal distribution. For instance, I would like to generate a 200 by 6 data matrix that is the best (or at least good enough) approximation of a MVN distribution. For a bivariate normal distribution one could calculate the probalities of a grid by integrating the density, but for six variables that seems undoable. 

Before trying the invent the wheel again, I think I will ask this question to experts, because it is unlikely that there is no already existing algorithm that does the job pretty well.

Thanks in advance,

Harry Garst
