Why does 'multiplying both sides by the denominator' make rsolve work?

Also I am curious about what the effect of appending "makeproc" does.


I tried to replicate the action using a function.

Without makeproc:

SP:=n->rsolve({S(n)-S(n-1) = 2*S(n)^2/(2*S(n)-1), S(1)=1}, {S(n)}):
>Error, (in rsolve/single) argument 10 in function S(10) is not a name

With makeproc, it works, but then SP(n) doesnt work.

SP:=rsolve({S(n)-S(n-1) = 2*S(n)^2/(2*S(n)-1), S(1)=1}, {S(n)},makeproc):

>Error, (in SP) input must be an integer

Why doesn't SP(n) work?


I simplified S(n)-S(n-1))*(2*S(n)-1)=2*S(n)^2 and solved for S(n).

but strangely

restart: A:=rsolve({S(n)= S(n-1)/(1+2*S(n-1)),S(1)=1}, {S(n)});

restart: A:=rsolve({S(n)*(1+2*S(n-1)) = S(n-1),S(1)=1}, {S(n)});

This appears to be the multiplying by denominator approach.


Thanks guys, very clever solution.

These are great suggestions.

Useful program.
I would love to learn how to make applets like this for statistical hypothesis testing.

It may be that r_i and theta_j were previously defined.

Check r_i or r__i and theta__j  , seperately on a new line.

Setting Digits:=20 is sufficient hopefully.


Maple int(int(int ( ) ) ) versus int( ) . The latter evaluates the outermost bounds, the former does not.

@Kitonum Thanks.

I was able to integrate it with cylindrical and spherical

@Fabio92 I changed the code so we don't evaluate a non-integer subscript. How is this?

medianmean:= proc(x) local a,b,c,d,g;
if (b mod 2 = 0) then
    evalf([a,(a[c]+a[c+1])/2,g]) ;
end if;
end proc:


Alternatively i can put the m inside the 'if then' body.

medianmean:= proc(x) local a,b,c,d,g,m;
if (b mod 2 = 0) then
    m:=  (a[c]+a[c+1])/2;
    evalf([a,m,g]) ;
end if;
end proc:



Thanks for the reply. So by setting y(x) = y in your subs statement, that tells maple to treat y(x) like a regular variable.

Question. When you say ' the explicit dependence of  y(x)  is unknown ' you mean maple doesn't know in what way y depends on x. For example y(x) could equal to x^2

Your help is very much appreciated.

Hi. I am a little confused by your command. I would never have thought of using it.

soln:= {solve({seq(gr)}, {V[]})};

Interesting i never used [ ] after an expression. It looks like V[ ]  returns just the arguments of the list V.

seq(eval([H,HD], s), s in soln)

I'm not sure how the s works here, since there is no s in H or HD.

@vv The fsolve did the trick, and the ceil adds a nice touch.

Maple just hangs if i enter

solve(1/(n+1)!* exp(0.1)=0.00001)

I think I see why, if we enter a smaller decimal. Maybe there is an option to assume it is an integer.

Is it possible to translate your worksheets into English. They look very useful.

@acer Thanks! I will try that.

@rlopez Thanks for replying. Interesting fact about the variation of parameters and integrals.
