MA 460/561 Howell Notes on Constructing Periodic Functions in Maple and Mathcad (With Addendums) First of all, read any introductory tutorials that come with the product. In both Maple and Mathcad, introductory tutorials are easily found under (also, Mathcad Help users can look at at the website). Intro to Mathcad Many of our functions will be piecewise defined. Consider, for example, defining the function we would write as 0!ÐBÑ œ B ! Ÿ B l # ! Ú Û Ü È if otherwise In Mathcad you can define this function either using the “if” function, f0 x ( ) if 0 x 2 < x , 0 , or using the features on the “programing palette” (this is something you just have to play around with), f0 x ( ) x 0 x 2 < if 0 otherwise In Maple, try using the function, piecewise f0 := x -> piecewise( 0<=x and x<2 , x^(1/2) , 0 ); If your function is to be periodic with period , you can still start by using the 0 : above methods to define a “proto- ” (call it ) having the correct formula for over 0 0! 0ÐBÑ
