I m a beginner with maple, so please, be patient with me! I m trying to use some complex algebra in maple. In particular, I want to define a function f(r,z) and I want to impose it to be REAL.
So I thought, let's first impose the variables to be real(I'm using Maple 10, so I write everything as if I was in a document, ok?):
after I have done this, I define the function, using the appropriate f(x,y) button in the toolbar:
and I impose it to be real:
but for some reason this does not work. Anyone knows why? The reason why I need to impose the function to be real is that F will be later multiplied by exp(Iz) to form a complex number.
