Arithmetic

• 

This is a list of the arithmetic operations available on numbers in Maple.  The `.` (dot) operator is used for non-commutative multiplication, for example for matrix multiplication.  The operations iquo, irem, isqrt, igcd, and ilcm are integer operations only.  Note that there is further help available for each operation.

a + b

addition

iquo(a,b)

quotient

a - b

subtraction

irem(a,b)

remainder

a * b

multiplication

a . b

non-commutative multiplication

isqrt(n)

square root

 

 

a / b

division

igcd(a,b)

greatest common divisor

a ^ b

exponentiation

ilcm(a,b)

least common multiple

signum(n)

sign of a number

n !

factorial

abs(n)

absolute value

min(a,b)

minimum

max(a,b)

maximum

See also the mod, modp, and mods commands. The mod operator evaluates the expression e over the integers modulo m.  It incorporates facilities for doing finite field arithmetic and polynomial and matrix arithmetic over finite fields, including factorization.
