How Does Maple Actually Solve an Identit...

Maple 13

Since I am a mathematician, I am wondering how Maple goes about solving an identity for 3 functions.
Let's say we have af1(t)+bf_2(t)+cf_3(t) = 0 for all t. How does maple actually find a triplet a,b,c that works for all real t?
It does with solve(identity( ),[a,b,c]). But what is the theory behind it?
We know, of course, a priori, that such a triplet exists.

Thank you!

How do we use on the axes Pi, Pi/2, ...,  in Maple 13 plots without evaluating Pi? When I just put enter Pi, Maple gives me 3.1415... . "piticks" is not available for Maple 13. I do have access to the university ocmputer's Maple 18, but, recently, it has decided that Citrix iwill not serve Windows 7.

Thank you.

How do I place parentheses around an aut...

Maple 13

There are some answers up here, but they are for given known functions.
I need to place parentheses around functions that are automatically created.
For example, the function \$f(x)\$ takes many polynomial values during the execution
of a procedure. For examplle, it takes the values, 2x-1, x^2+3x+2, x^3-2x-3, etc.
How do I automatically place parentheses around these polynomials?
Thank you!

Maple 13

I am using an integal sign using Int. If there is a minus sign in front of it, then

I get the expression -(Int ... dx). Why is the parenthesis there? Can we avoind it?

Thank you!
