Dear Class,
The maple 2015 instructions apply to maple 9.5, 11, 12, 13, 14, 15, 16, 17, 18 with obvious
changes to command lines, e.g., change "maple2015" to "mapleV12" or "mapleV18".
To use maple 2015 on the local unix systems, invoke it by command line
xmaple2015 &
To use maple 2015 with the classic window interface [no java], invoke it
by the command line
xmaple2015 -cw &
After starting maple 2015, set the OPTIONS on the tool menu as follows:
Display --> Input display --> Maple Notation
Display --> Output display --> 2D-Math Notation
Interface --> Default format for new worksheets --> Worksheet
Apply Globally
When working with maple 2015, you should see red text on input and blue
text on output. If your typing is black, then exit Maple, start it
again, and look for a change. If no change, then repeat the steps above,
assuming a typo.
The linalg package is supposed to work in maple 2015. Loading of package
LinearAlgebra and then loading package linalg should make the commands
of both available.
Example 1: A:=<<1,0> | <2,3>>; # Enter cols of matrix A
b:=<-1,1>;
A.b; # multiply matrix A against column vector b.
det(A); # No answer, needs linalg package
Determinant(A); # No answer, needs LinearAlgebra package
linalg[det](A); # works
LinearAlgebra[Determinant](a); # also works
Example 2: with(linalg): # Depreciated, still in maple 17.
C:=matrix([[1,2],[0,3]]);# In textbooks. Enter C by rows.
eigenvects(C);
Eigenvectors(C); # No answer, error message
Example 3: with(LinearAlgebra):
F:=Matrix([[1,2],[0,3]]);# Enter F by rows.
Eigenvectors(F);
Example 4: with(LinearAlgebra):with(linalg):
A:=<<1,0> | <2,3>>; # Enter A by cols.
Eigenvectors(A);Determinant(A);
eigenvects(A);det(A);
To set up maple 2015 on linux, windows and Mac OS/X systems, follow the
advice above. To run the classic window interface under 32-bit windows,
launch the application "cwmaple" located in the win.bin subdirectory of
the maple 2015 installation in Program Files.
The bare-bones terminal interface maple 2015 is launched on a unix
system as follows:
