Diatomic anharmonic oscillator
http://www.maplesoft.com/applications/view.aspx?SID=3878&ref=Feed
The calculation undertaken here employs perturbation theory of multiple orders; the extent of the calculation, according to the order, is adjustable by a user within limitations of machine capacity and acceptable duration of calculation.<img src="/view.aspx?si=3878//applications/images/app_image_blank_lg.jpg" alt="Diatomic anharmonic oscillator" align="left"/>The calculation undertaken here employs perturbation theory of multiple orders; the extent of the calculation, according to the order, is adjustable by a user within limitations of machine capacity and acceptable duration of calculation.3878Wed, 20 Jun 2001 00:00:00 ZMichael MonaganMichael MonaganFORTRAN code generation with a linear algebra application
http://www.maplesoft.com/applications/view.aspx?SID=3888&ref=Feed
A discussion of the consequences that can arise from naive usage of symbolic computation when generating Fortran code. Given the following 3 by 3 symmetric matrix M (perhaps created in a symbolic computation system like Maple), and we want to evaluate numerically the inverse of M at particular values of the parameters q2, q3, p, m10, m30, j10y, j30x, j30y, j30z in a Fortran program. It is tempting to compute the inverse of the matrix M symbolically then use Maple's fortran function to generate the Fortran code. Does this produce the most efficient code? Let's see. <img src="/view.aspx?si=3888//applications/images/app_image_blank_lg.jpg" alt="FORTRAN code generation with a linear algebra application" align="left"/>A discussion of the consequences that can arise from naive usage of symbolic computation when generating Fortran code.

http://www.maplesoft.com/applications/view.aspx?SID=3907&ref=Feed
This routine is intended to show how one can program one's own plotting routines using the PLOT3D structure in Maple. The example we have chosen is to plot a subgroup lattice in 3-dimensions. But this code can serve as an example for how to plot an arbitrary graph G = V,E

http://www.maplesoft.com/applications/view.aspx?SID=3644&ref=Feed
The 3n+1 sequence has probably consumed more CPU time than any other number theoretic conjecture. The reason being that its statement is so simple, that most amateurs will feel compelled to write programs to test it. This sequence, attributed to Lothar Collatz, has bee given various names, including Ulam's conjecture, Syracuse problem, Kakutani's problem and Hasse's algorithm. The conjecture is based on the iteration defined by:
n[i+1] = if n[i] is even then n[i]/2 else 3*n[i]+1 .

This worksheet is an application of Maple to doing some simple calculations over finite fields GF(p^k). The application is from error correcting codes and was brought to us by Nicolas Sendrier, INRIA, France, in May/90.

This worksheet considers the problem of a ball or bullet thrown (shot) straight up into the air, with air resistance taken into account. We describe the trajectory of the ball / bullet as an ODE, plot the motion of the ball / bullet and solve for when the ball lands on the ground.<img src="/view.aspx?si=3494//applications/images/app_image_blank_lg.jpg" alt="Motion of a bullet under air resistance" align="left"/>This worksheet considers the problem of a ball or bullet thrown (shot) straight up into the air, with air resistance taken into account.
