Dear Class,
The maple 2017 instructions apply to maple 2015, 2016, V9, V9.5,
V10, V11, V12, V13 with obvious changes to command lines, e.g.,
change "maple2017" to "maple2015" or "mapleV11".
In late 2017 and 2018, there is no maple V14, V5, V16, V18. These
versions have been removed.
To use maple 2017 on the local unix systems with GUI interface, invoke it by command line
xmaple2017 &
To use maple 9.5 with the classic window interface [no java], invoke it
by the command line
xmapleV9.5 -cw &
After starting xmaple2017 or xmapleV12, 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 xmaple2017, 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 2017. 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): # Deprecated, still in maple 2017.
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 2017 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 2017 installation in Program Files.
The bare-bones terminal interface maple 2017 is launched on a unix
system as follows:
