Editor-in-Chief of Maple Transactions (www.mapletransactions.org), longtime Maple user (1st use 1981, before Maple was even released). Most obscure piece of the library that I wrote? Probably `convert/MatrixPolynomialObject` which is called by LinearAlgebra[CompanionMatrix] to compute linearizations of matrix polynomials in several different bases. Do not look at the code. Seriously. Do not look. You have been warned.

This is my second try---my previous post about the Maple Conference  https://www.maplesoft.com/mapleconference/2021/ seems to have vanished into thin electrons.

Anyway!  The conference opens tomorrow!  There are many really interesting prerecorded talks, three live plenaries, two excellent panels, and registration is free!  See the above link.

I look forward to "seeing" you tomorrow.

Rob Corless, co-Chair of the Program Committee

on behalf of the organizers

Dear all,

The November issue of Maple Transactions is now up (we will be adding a few more items to that issue over the course of the month).  See https://mapletransactions.org/index.php/maple/index for the articles.

More importantly, Maple Primes seems to have a great many interesting posts, some of which could well be worked up into a paper (or a video).  Maple Transactions accepts worksheets (documents, workbooks) for publication, as well, although we want a high standard of readability for that.  I invite you to contribute.

The next issue of Maple Transactions will be the Special Issue that is the Proceedings of the Maple Conference 2021 (see my previous post :)

From a tweet by Tamás Görbe : plotting Chebyshev polynomials in polar coordinates leads to some interesting pictures.  Screenshot here, link to the worksheet (and some perhaps interesting puzzles) at the end.

Dear all,

Reversion of series---computing a series for the functional inverse of a function---has been in Maple since forever, but many people are not aware of how easy it is.  Here's an example, where we are looking for "self-reverting" series---which I called "ambiverts".  Anyway have fun.

PS There looks to be some "code rot" in the branch point series for Lambert W in Maple, which we encounter in that worksheet.  Or, I may simply have not coded it very well in the first place (yeah, that was mine, once upon a time).  Checking now.  But there is a workaround (albeit an ugly one) shown in that worksheet.

 

Dear all,

Recently I discovered the noncommuting variables in the Physics package due to Edgardo Cheb-Terrab; doubtless there are many posts here on Maple Primes describing them.  Here is one more, which shows how to use this package to prove the Schur complement formula.

I guess I have a newbie's question: how well-integrated are Maple Primes and the Maple Cloud?  Anyway that seemed the easiest way to share this.
