BCMB/CHEM 8190 Lab Exercise Using Maple for NMR Data Processing and Pulse Sequence Design March 2010 Introduction Maple is a powerful collection of routines to aid in the solution of mathematical problems and the analysis of data. It is similar to MATLAB and Mathematica, some other tools frequently used in the sciences. Like these relatives, it is capable of doing both symbolic manipulations (solving equations written in terms of variables like x, y, and z) and numeric calculations. It will often default to symbolic calculations, but numeric evaluation can easily be added. Maple 13, the current version distributed at UGA, has a versatile interactive interface that allows you to write equations easily (document mode). Note that there are many modes for entry (Text, 2D Math, etc.) By default the program will come up in document mode with 2D Math entry. You can type from the keyboard as well as insert a variety of special characters by selecting them from the pallet at the left. Use of this interactive interface is well illustrated by the ten minute tutorial found under the help menu. This is an easy way to get familiar with some of the capabilities and conventions. You can also use the search function in the Maple Help window opened using the Help tab on to the right of the top menu bar. Type any function name you might expect and activate search. To see a list of functions type ‘index[function]’ in the window and activate search. Maple also operates in a worksheet mode in which commands are easily grouped in execution groups so that they can be easily repeated, strung together in more complex sequences, and saved for future reference. You can tell you are in this mode by the “>” prompt at the beginning of a line. We are going to work in this mode. To get into this mode select “New” and then “Worksheet Mode” from under the “File” menu in the upper left corner. We will go through some applications illustrating plotting of data and matrix manipulations on the first day. On the second day we will use Maple to do some algebra using product operators (the operators we use to describe NMR pulse sequences and their effect on spin systems). Some Simple Maple Operations Using Matrices: There are five basic rules to Maple V syntax according to one book: Maple V by Example, Abell and Braselton, Academic Press, 1994. 1.
