Maple Maple help

  1. Apr 7, 2007 #1
    hello, I am plotting the fresnel integral equations in maple. I was able to plot them, but I also need to tabulate various x and y values of the function between x=-8.5 and x-8.5 in 0.1 increments. Is maple able to do this? I searched for "table" in the help file with no real solution. Can someone give me a hint, or a pointer? Thanks.

    anyone know how I might go about doing this?

    and when I try to evaluate the fresnel equation using maple at individual values of x, for instance x=2, using FresnelC(2) it just spits out "FresnelC(2)".

    meh. Maple had no trouble plotting the Fresnel equations though.

    use evalf(FresnelC(2)) :smile:

    For a "table," you can use the seq command

    <seq(<<evalf(i/10)>|<evalf(FresnelC(i/10))>>, i=-85..85)>;

    will output a 171x2 matrix with columns for x and FresnelC(x) (Maple will, of course, not display the whole matrix without you instructing it to do so!).

    I ended up using the maple spreadsheet feature. :) It worked nicely.

    Thanks for your input.

    All of these newfangled features make it hard to keep up! :tongue:
