Hi,

Maple 2017.3 has these problems which hamper my work with it. I shown three examples.

Example 1: Maple cannot recognize automatically that two complex numbers are equal:

[>eq1:=9*exp((1/9)*(5*I)*Pi)-9*exp((1/9)*(2*I)*Pi) = -8*exp((1/9)*(2*I)*Pi)+7*exp((1/9)*(5*I)*Pi)+exp((1/18)*(13*I)*Pi)*sqrt(3);

Here, lhs(eq1) and rhs(eq1) are in fact equal. Yes, evela(simplify(lhs(eq1)-rhs(eq1)) reduces to zero but not when solving equations (see Example 2).

Example 2:

[>sys1:=[_xx[1]+lhs(eq1),_xx[1]+rhs(eq1)];
[>solve(sys1,[_xx[1],_xx[2]]);

yields no answer.

Example 3:

[>alias(omega=RootOf(_Z^2+_Z+1));
[>rt:=(-1+I*sqrt(3))/2;

Maple fails to substitute the alias and recognize that rt=omega.

Any suggestion on a work-around problems 2 and 3 would be helpful.

Thanks,
