Unformatted text preview: Data Analysis Modelling and Simulation MATH1711 Epiphany Term Practical 0 Aim: To introduce basic required tools from Maple which will be used in the course of Practicals. You can access Maple on the ITS Networked PC service. You will find Maple on the Start menu, at: Programs | Programming Languages | MAPLE | MAPLE 10. Run the Classic Worksheet version. See http://www.dur.ac.uk/its/software/installed/npcs/ , where a basic guide can be downloaded. Maple is a symbolic calculator which can : exponentiate ( ^ ), divide ( / ), multiply ( * ), add ( + ) and sub- tract(- ). It probably knows more standard functions than you! sin(x), cos(x), tan(x), arcsin(x), arccos(x) arctan(x), sinh(x), cosh(x), tanh(x), exp(x) sqrt(x), log(x), abs(x), log(x), log10(x), n! 1 If you want to know about cos( x ) then type help(cos); 2 To define a function f ( x ), write f:=x->sin(x)+cos(2*x); 1 arcsin( x ) = sin- 1 x , arccos( x ) = cos- 1 x , arctan( x ) = tan- 1 x , sinh = (e x- e- x ) / 2, cosh = (e x +...
