Re: Maple equivalent of the Maxima function "rat"



There is no exact equivalent, but I suggest you read about Maple's
normal() function. It is, I think, more like Maxima's ratsimp(),
but with partiallyfactored form enabled  ratfac:true.
Maxima's rat() keeps rational expressions in a very compact form compared
to Maxima's usual representation. I suspect that Maple normal() still uses
that
one representation  which is usually pretty compact/efficient  but
probably sacrifices something in convenience and/or expressibility
compared to Maxima's general form.
Perhaps a Maple expert will have more info.
