Two little list utilities for MATLAB-like array indexing

I grew up with MATLAB, where extracting a subset of a vector V was easy as feeding a vector of indices into a vector.  For example entries i thru j could be had with… 61 more words

A maxima function to replicate MATLAB diff() and an efficiency comparison

I needed a function to compute a list containing the difference between adjacent entries in another list, as diff() does for an array in MATLAB. 27 more words

Path Integrals in the Plane, Double Integrals, and Greens Theorem in Maxima

In an earlier post I described the Maxima package MATH214 for use in my multivariable calculus class.  I’ve posted examples with applications to Gauss’s  Theorem… 103 more words

Surface Integrals and Stokes Theorem in Maxima

In an earlier post I detailed the Maxima functions contained  the MATH214 package for use in my multivariable calculus class.  The package at that link has now been updated with some further integration utilities:  281 more words
