Maple Implementation of Transport Encoding and Transport Encrypting with the Secret Key of Length 1980 bits Using John Walker's Base 64 Encoding Scheme
http://www.maplesoft.com/applications/view.aspx?SID=153721&ref=Feed
<p>The application uses John Walker's very useful and accessible in the Internet implementation of a fast Base 64 encoding and decoding scheme. Presented worksheet allows to perform fast transport encoding and encrypting of files of an arbitrary format. The secret key in the application is embedded. It can easily be generated using the `keygen` procedure and an arbitrary `password` string. Evidently, many procedures for key generation may be implemented. The user can also himself directly construct the global variables `b2o`, `o2b`, `f2o` and `o2f` used in the encryption/decryption procedures. The code of the application in the startup code region and in the combobox `select action` is stored.</p>
<P><B>Note:</B> For proper functioning of this application, this application must be saved in a location with no spaces in the path name, e.g. C:\transport.</p><img src="/applications/images/app_image_blank_lg.jpg" alt="Maple Implementation of Transport Encoding and Transport Encrypting with the Secret Key of Length 1980 bits Using John Walker's Base 64 Encoding Scheme" align="left"/><p>The application uses John Walker's very useful and accessible in the Internet implementation of a fast Base 64 encoding and decoding scheme.

The elementary functions include the six trigonometric and hyperbolic functions and their inverses. For all but five of these 24 functions, Maple's derivative (correct on the complex plane) agrees with the real-variable form found in the standard calculus text. For these five exceptions, this article explores two issues: (1) Does Maple's derivative, restricted to the real domain, agree with the real-variable form; and (2), to what extent do both forms agree on the complex plane.<img src="/view.aspx?si=153726/thumb.jpg" alt="Classroom Tips and Techniques: Real and Complex Derivatives of Some Elementary Functions" align="left"/>The elementary functions include the six trigonometric and hyperbolic functions and their inverses.

<p>Riemannian geometry is customarily developed by tensor methods, which is not necessarily the most computationally efficient approach. Using the language of differential forms, Elie Cartan's formulation of the Riemannian geometry can be elegantly summarized in two structural equations. Essentially, the local curvature of the manifold is a measure of how the connection varies from point to point. This Maple worksheet uses the <strong>DifferentialGeometry</strong> package to solves three problems in Harley Flanders' book on differential forms to demonstrate the implementation of Cartan's method. </p><img src="/view.aspx?si=153720/c119c404932805fdc4af274016b48a13.gif" alt="Calculating Gaussian Curvature Using Differential Forms" align="left"/><p>Riemannian geometry is customarily developed by tensor methods, which is not necessarily the most computationally efficient approach.

Naive simplification of f(z) = sqrt(z - 1) sqrt(z + 1) to F(z) = sqrt(z<sup>2</sup> - 1) results in a pair of functions that agree on only part of the complex plane. The enhanced ability of Maple 18 to find and display branch cuts of composite functions is used in this article to explore the branch cuts and regions of agreement/disagreement of f and F.<img src="/view.aspx?si=153697/thumb.jpg" alt="Classroom Tips and Techniques: Branch Cuts for a Product of Two Square-Roots" align="left"/>Naive simplification of f(z) = sqrt(z - 1) sqrt(z + 1) to F(z) = sqrt(z<sup>2</sup> - 1) results in a pair of functions that agree on only part of the complex plane.

Generating (pseudo-)random values is a frequent task in simulations and other programs. For some situations, you want to generate some combinatorial or algebraic values, such as a list or a polynomial; in other situations, you need random numbers, from a distribution that is uniform or more complicated. In this article I'll talk about all of these situations.<img src="/view.aspx?si=153662/thumb.jpg" alt="Generating random numbers efficiently" align="left"/>Generating (pseudo-)random values is a frequent task in simulations and other programs.

http://www.maplesoft.com/applications/view.aspx?SID=153659&ref=Feed
<p>Pipework is a large part of the cost of a process plant. Plant designers need to minimize the total cost of this pipework across the lifetime of the plant. The total overall cost is a combination of individual costs related to the:</p>
<ul>
<li>pipe material,</li>
<li>installation, </li>
<li>maintenance, </li>
<li>depreciation, </li>
<li>energy costs for pumping, </li>
<li>liquid parameters, </li>
<li>required flowrate,</li>
<li>pumping efficiencies,</li>
<li>taxes,</li>
<li>and more.</li>
</ul>
<p>The total cost is not a simple linear sum of the individual costs; a more complex relationship is needed.</p>
<p>This application uses the approach described in [1] to find the pipe diameter that minimizes the total lifetime cost. The method involves the iterative solution of an empirical equation using <a href="/support/help/Maple/view.aspx?path=fsolve">Maple’s fsolve function</a> (the code for the application is in the Startup code region).</p>
<p>Users can choose the pipe material (carbon steel, stainless steel, aluminum or brass), and specify the desired fluid flowrate, fluid viscosity and density. The application then solves the empirical equation (using Maple’s fsolve() function) and returns the economically optimal pipe diameter.</p>
<p>Bear in mind that the empirical parameters used in the application vary as economic conditions change. Those used in this application are correct for 1998 and 2008.</p>
