 VFPDO
 construct a VFPDO object Calling Sequence VFPDO( trivial, V) VFPDO( p, V ) VFPDO( L) Parameters

 V - an VectorField object L - an LAVF object p - a list or set of linear homogeneous differential expressions or a LHPDE object whose dependent variables are the components of the VectorField V. Description

 • The command VFPDO(...) is for constructing a VFPDO object. It returns a VFPDO object if successful. A valid VFPDO object has access to various methods which allow it to be manipulated and its contents queried. For more detail, see Overview of the VFPDO object.
 • The VFPDO constructor command works by taking a list of linear homogeneous differential expressions and return essentially the same thing, but as a differential operator on the vector field V.
 • In the first calling sequence VFPDO("trivial", V) returns the zero VFPDO operator on the vector field V.
 • In the second calling sequence, the first input argument is a list or set of scalar expressions or equations, or alternatively a table as returned by DEtools[rifsimp] or a LHPDE object, and their dependant variables must be components of the vector field V.
 • In the third sequence, it builds a VFPDO from LAVF L. Note here if the L is integrated, the VFPDO will be built from the implicit form of L.
 • This command is part of the LieAlgebrasOfVectorFields package. For more detail, see Overview of the LieAlgebrasOfVectorFields package.
 • This command can be used in the form VFPDO(...) only after executing the command with(LieAlgebrasOfVectorFields), but can always be used in the form LieAlgebrasOfVectorFields:-VFPDO(...). Examples

First we build a trivial VFPDO

 > $\mathrm{VFPDO}\left("trivial",X\right)$
 ${X}{↦}\left[{X}{}\left({x}\right){,}{X}{}\left({y}\right)\right]$ (4)

or we can build a VFPDO directly from a LAVF..

 > $\mathrm{VFPDO}\left(L\right)$
 ${X}{→}\left[\frac{{\partial }}{{\partial }{y}}{}\left(\frac{{\partial }}{{\partial }{y}}{}{X}{}\left({x}\right)\right){,}\frac{{ⅆ}}{{ⅆ}{x}}{}{X}{}\left({x}\right){,}\frac{{\partial }}{{\partial }{x}}{}{X}{}\left({y}\right){+}\frac{{\partial }}{{\partial }{y}}{}{X}{}\left({x}\right){,}\frac{{ⅆ}}{{ⅆ}{y}}{}{X}{}\left({y}\right)\right]$ (5) Compatibility

 • The LieAlgebrasOfVectorFields[VFPDO] command was introduced in Maple 2020.
