Maple Syntax

 As much as possible, Maple conforms to standard linear expression notation and precedence rules. The syntactic expression operators in Maple are shown below in order of precedence (lowest to highest), where all the operators in a given group have the same precedence.

 a || b :- :: % a &name b &name a a ! a ^ b a @@ b a * b / c... a intersect b a @ b a . b a + b - c... + a - a a union b a minus b a mod b subset a .. b a < b a <= b a = b a <> b a > b a >= b in a \$ b not a a and b a or b xor implies a -> b a, b assuming := ( a ) ' a ' { a, b, ... } [ a, b, ... ] %1 a [ b ] f ( a )

 • An operator or function can be applied element-wise by using the element-wise syntax--a tilde (~) after the operator or function name. The precedence of element-wise operators matches that of the operator being applied element-wise.
 Note: The exponentiation operators are defined to be nonassociative. Therefore, a^b^c is invalid in Maple--parentheses must be used. The other operators are left-associative, except logical NOT, which is right-associative.
