Maple 10 question



Hi,
I am trying to use Maple for some linear algebra computation and I have
a silly problem that drives me crazy. Here's the math input I use:
M:= linalg[matrix](2,2, [c, I*c, I*c, c]);
So, I pretty much define a 2x2 matrix. Here's the result of the
execution of this string in text format:
[ c Ic]
M := [ ]
[Ic c]
Somewhere along the way matrix element m_{2,1} lost its sign. What???
Is there anything wrong in what I am doing?

That's strange, because I am getting the expected answer:
Quote:  restart;
M:= linalg[matrix](2,2, [c, I*c, I*c, c]);
[ c I c] 
M := [ ]
[I c c ]

Is your version 10.04? If not, try to upgrade it.
Aside: The linalg package have been superseded by the LinearAlgebra
package. Try the new syntax:
Quote:  M := <<c  I*c>, <I*c  c>>;
[ c I c] 
M := [ ]
[I c c ]
Do ?LinearAlgebra and ?Matrix for more information.

Re: Maple 10 question



Hi,
My version was
Maple 10
as of May 13, 2005
I downloaded an upgrade and my new version,
Maple 10.04
as of May 30, 2006,
does not have this error!!! Now, all calculations seem to work the way
they are supposed to. Thanks a lot!
For those of you who cannot believe me this problem has happenedfeel
free to ask me for the Maple 10 version (as of May 13, 2005) which I
still have on a CD.
Dmitri
PS I tried the new syntax before which worked out the same way on the
old verson, meaning with the same exact error. I tried to trick Maple
by multiplying m_{2,1} by sin(Pi/2), and it did not work either I
guess it knew what it was doing...
