<p>In this worksheet a collision detection performed to determine the minimum safety distance between a tool holder and ball nut on grinding manufacturing. A nonlinear quartic equation system have to be solved by <em>Newton's</em> and <em>Broyden's</em> methods and results are compared with <em>Maple fsolve()</em> command.

http://www.maplesoft.com/applications/view.aspx?SID=126623&ref=Feed
Several identities in vector calculus involve the operator A . (VectorCalculus[Nabla]) acting on a vector B. The resulting expression (A . (VectorCalculus[Nabla]))B is interpreted as the directional derivative of the vector B in the direction of the vector A. This is not easy to implement in Maple's VectorCalculus packages. However, this functionality exists in the Physics:-Vectors package, and in the DifferentialGeometry package where it is properly called the DirectionalCovariantDerivative.
This article examines how to obtain (A . (VectorCalculus[Nabla]))B in Maple.<img src="/view.aspx?si=126623/thumb.jpg" alt="Classroom Tips and Techniques: Directional Derivatives in Maple" align="left"/>Several identities in vector calculus involve the operator A .

http://www.maplesoft.com/applications/view.aspx?SID=19187&ref=Feed
The vector treatment of Kepler's first law presented in most calculus textbooks is based on the existence of a constant vector that is associated with the exact inverse square force law. Such a treatment is not a general substitute for the methods based on the differential equations of motion. This worksheet demonstrates how to use Maple to solve the differential equations governing planetary motion, and how to visualize the Laplace-Runge-Lenz vector which is peculiar to the force law of the form k/r^2.<img src="/view.aspx?si=19187/thumb.gif" alt="Visualizing the Laplace-Runge-Lenz Vector" align="left"/>The vector treatment of Kepler's first law presented in most calculus textbooks is based on the existence of a constant vector that is associated with the exact inverse square force law.
