@Carl Love I'm happy to see that the post now appears under questions.

@xavier I turned your post into a question. Initially after that it appeared to have disappeared, but I found by searching you (xavier) under Users.

This morning I read the post "décomposition d'un entier en somme d'entiers et partage d'un ensemble non vide en u parties non vides" by the user xavier. There was also a comment on that post by xavier.
It seemed to me that the post was really a question. So I turned it into a question. Initially on my screen it said  Question: ---title---.
But it now seems to be gone. At this time it still appears as the last post in the menu.

Added about an hour later: I found the post, now as a question by searching the user xavier.

@Christopher2222 Are you sure that sursumcorda didn't delete his own comment?

Yesterday I saw under "Active Conversations" the following:

Initially I didn't check the date, but just wrote a comment, which stated that there was no tilde problem in Maple 2023.
When I later returned to the link I saw that the question was posed in January 2006, i.e. 17 years ago, and that no responses were added later than that time. Thus my comment was totally irrelevant, so I deleted it.

I'm not suggesting that sursumcorda's comment was irrelevant. Clearly it was very relevant.

Had anybody responded to my comment on these old tilde problems I wouldn't have deleted my comment.

@Christopher2222 Thanks for reminding me of Map.

In your case you could use it like this:

a := [[1.2, 4.3], [3.2, 5.3]];

I prefer, however, the way given in my answer.

@felixiao I couldn't find out what was wrong; everything looked fine.
Therefore I copied the whole code and put it in a text editor (actually Notepad++).
In there I couldn't see any problem either, but I copied the code planted there and put it in a new worksheet in Maple.

Save it as the .mw file:

### Note added later: I did this in Maple2023.1, but I also tried in the much older Maple 12. The problem was the same there. For the remedy this time I used the Notepad that comes with Windows.


The plot looks like this:

@vv PolynomialSystem and solve both work with V as a list in Maple 12, but not in Maple 2021.

@Carl Love The matrices that are being inverted resulting in H5 and H7 and their determinants:

H51:=Matrix([[G11, G12], [G21, G22]]); ## ~H5
LinearAlgebra:-Determinant(H51);  ## 0. + (9.2517792695382088910002830954*10^(-32))*I
H71:=Matrix([[Z11, Z12], [Z21, Z22]]);   ## ~H7
LinearAlgebra:-Determinant(H71);  ## 0. - (1.89398211168871707929210978553*10^(-30))*I

Inverting the first matrix H51 results in the error. For the second we get in shortened form:

## Result:
## [[1.1548*10^16 - (1.3826*10^16)*I, -6.7969*10^15 + (8.1376*10^15)*I], [0. - (1.8014*10^16)*I, 0.15598 + (1.0603*10^16)*I]]

@felixiao I copied the code and removed evalm.

I got this:

@felixiao Could you please upload a worksheet: Use the fat green up-arrow in the editor.

You seem to have given us all the code in your question, but I tried copying that and run it (without any evalm).
There were several errors; maybe do the copying and pasting.
So please upload the worksheet.

@Tamour_Zubair It is understandable to me that you want to know about the basics of the numerical methods used to solve odes. But I would leave the rest to the expert(s), who wrote the code for (in this case) Maple's dsolve/numeric. The implementation is superb.
If you see going further as a challenge then OK. Go ahead.

@Carl Love and @Tamour_Zubair

Using the corrections mentioned by Carl I adjusted the code in the worksheet attached.
I made tolerance an optional keyword parameter. The result is returned as a Matrix whose first and second columns consist  of the t and y values, respectively.

### Since the first version I added another version, which in my view is better.
The old one remains and is at the bottom.
the new version doesn't  use lists and allows for use with odeplot.

@Tamour_Zubair The formal parameters used in a procedure cannot be changed inside a procedure:
Let us take a very simple example:

p:=proc(h) h:=h/2 end proc;

The formal parameter in the procedure p is h. When you apply p to 8 as in p(8), the first that happens is that h is replaced all over the body of the procedure by the number  8. So you have the nonsens assignment 8:=4.
Thus the error message that fortunately reveals the error.
The solution could be this revised version:

p:=proc(h1) local h;
end proc;
p(8); # 4

This you can do in RKF45 where the same happens.

RKF45 := proc(f, y0, t0, tn, h1) local k1, k2, k3, k4, k5, k6, y, t, Ynext, h_new, tol, ttt1,h; 
##The rest unchanged
end proc;

You now have a new problem, however. The computation appears to take forever.

Who wrote the code?

@Tamour_Zubair rkf45 works with error toler ances and with no fixed stepsize. The algorithm seeks to assure that the tolerances are satisfied. If it is impossible an error occurs. It is much more complicated than rk4.
Your rk4 code doesn't just need updating: It has to be rewritten.
You can search the internet for code. What you find might very well differ from Maple's implementation.
An illustration using the simple ode from above where we actually have the exact solution for comparison:

res_rk4:=dsolve({ode,y(0)=1},numeric,method=classical[rk4],stepsize=0.01,output=listprocedure); # stepsize=0.01
res_rkf45:=dsolve({ode,y(0)=1},numeric,method=rkf45,output=listprocedure, abserr=1e-15, relerr=1e-12);  
max(abs(Error_rk4)); #2.73097100489395*10^(-10)
max(abs(Error_rkf45)); #5.52891066263328*10^(-13)

@Tamour_Zubair Your code appears quite correct. Maple uses a version where the k's are defined directly as the f-values, but that the result is the same, as is seen here, where only symbols are used:

## First your version
rk4_k := proc(f, t, y, h) local k1, k2, k3, k4, ynew; 
  k1 := f(t, y)*h; 
  k2 := f(t + 1/2*h, y + 1/2*k1)*h; 
  k3 := f(t + 1/2*h, y + 1/2*k2)*h; 
  k4 := f(t + h, y + k3)*h; 
  ynew := y + 1/6*k1 + 1/3*k2 + 1/3*k3 + 1/6*k4; 
  return ynew; 
end proc;
## New version with Maple's k's (here called K):
rk4_K := proc(f, t, y, h) local K1,K2,K3,K4, ynew; 
K1 := f(t, y); 
K2 := f(t + 1/2*h, y + 1/2*K1*h); 
K3 := f(t + 1/2*h, y + 1/2*K2*h); 
K4 := f(t + h, y + K3*h); 
ynew := y + 1/6*h*(K1 + 2*K2 + 2*K3 + K4); 
  return ynew; 
end proc;
simplify(%%-%); # 0

A simple example will illustrate the algorithm:

dsolve({ode,y(0)=1}); # The exponential function as it should be.
# The numerical result from Maple
### The procedure f in this case (NOTE: f  in the algorithm is a function of 2 variables t and y).
### Now go 10 steps and write the results to a Vector:
Y:=Vector(11,datatype=float); # Maple uses that datatype in dsolve/numeric
Y[1]:=1; # The initial y0 = 1 (t=0)
for n from 1 to 10 do
end do;
Y[11]; # 2.71827974413517
resM(1); # Perfect agreement
