Thanks acer for all these precisions, particularly for the trick on your point (2).

@Carl Love 

Well seen.
I always try to be very careful with these Hfloats, which are automatically switched on with some (all) of the functions in the Statistics package (the function to plot is a scaled PDF of a ChiSquare(N)^2 random variable with large N).

UseHardwareFloats:= false:  works perfectly well.



Thanks Tom, that's great news.
Although I'm using Maple 2015, I'm not requesting any corrective action on this older version and will continue to manage by finding a loophole.

Several points

  1. I understand that k1, omega11, omega12, omega21 and omega22 are the five "primary" parameters.

    But your expression doesn't contain any of these omegas parameters.

  2. all other coefficients would be calculated based on k values and corresponding omegas: what are these "other coefficients" (k2, q12, h, mu[s], ... ? What are their expresions wrt the five "primary" parameters.
    If you do not tell us all the relations, or provide us a cristal ball, I sincerely doubt that someone can provide you an answer.

  3. At last you want to plot something for different  5-tuples of values of k1, omega11, omega12, omega21 and omega22  (see point (1) above.
    Did you realized that this represe, 5^5 = 3125 plots?
    Are you sure uou want them all on the same figure?
    Maybe you want to do an "Explore type plot" (look to explore in the help page) ? Please be more pecise.

  4. Last point: do you thing people here are going to spent time to code in Maple the LaTeX expression you present?
    Can't you code yourself this expression (and all the auxiliary expressions, see point (2) above) and download this code in your question?


but I perfered not to use it.

Same for me.
After the first warning message, I dug around and got this (in french, sorry)  


You shot faster than me :-)

@C_R  @yangtheary

Let's be honest: @C_R gave the answer, albeit incomplete. 
I'm only correcting @C_R here, so please do not convert this reply into an answer.



`Maple 2015.2, APPLE UNIVERSAL OSX, Dec 20 2015, Build ID 1097895`


_EnvHorizontalName := 'x':
_EnvVerticalName := 'y':

point(F1, [-1, -1]):
point(F2, [1, 1]):

ellipse(p, ['foci' = [F1, F2], 'MinorAxis' = 2*sqrt(14)]);




240*x^2-32*x*y+240*y^2-3584 = 0




(with copy to @Carl Love)

You're absolutely right.
It was just after reading Carl's reply that I reread yours more carefully and noticed the last sentence.
I don't understand why I missed it on the first reading.
My apologies.

It's likely that I went to the special evaluation rules  help page and, having seen no mention of piecewise, inferred that the problem I observed using piecewise was of a completely different order... and skipped the end of your answer.

Thank you both for your clarifications.

@Carl Love @sursumCorda @acer 

Thank you all for your contributions.
First of all, I voted up for all of you.
Next comes the dubious matter of selecting the best answer, if any.  Please don't blame me if none of you have been my chosen one, even if @acer has lifted the corner of the curtain in front of `if`.

Thanks again.

By the way, does any of you have an explanation about the a priori strange behaviour of piecewise that I mentioned at the end of my attached file?


Thank you acer for your analysis... and for the workaroung (of course).


Good to know the issue has been fixed, bad to know I have to use plots:-display.

By the way: you're right about the syntax ( InsertContent(Worksheet(Group(Input(TT)))) ) which has been significantly simplified since Maple 2015)


Thanks for having clarified this discussion and for perfectly described the differences in perception of the term "non-dimensionalization".


What about functions f[1](theta) and f[2](theta) whose dimensions should be homogeneous to a surface?

@dharr @ijuptilk

I started from @dharr code but did slightly different operations on the equations.
My point is to finder under chich conditions each term in the final dimensionless equation are indeed dimensionless, and check that these conditions ar mutually compatible.

Doing this I find that f, for instance, x is a length, so is z, and if t is a time, then u and v are velocities
More of this gamma[1] and gamma[2] are frequencies and kappa is surfave (look inside the attached code to see what kappa is).
But there is a problem, already underlined by @dharr, concerning f[1] and f[2].

Ultimately a true dimensionless equation should contain "Dimensionless Numbers" (such as Reynolds, Mach, ...) build from some combinations of the elementary dimensions present in the initial equation (2 in the present case).

I believe this require some clarifications.
