Arithmetic

 • This is a list of the arithmetic operations available on numbers in Maple.  The . (dot) operator is used for non-commutative multiplication, for example for matrix multiplication.  The operations iquo, irem, isqrt, igcd, and ilcm are integer operations only.  Note that there is further help available for each operation.

 a + b addition iquo(a,b) quotient a - b subtraction irem(a,b) remainder a * b multiplication a . b non-commutative multiplication isqrt(n) square root a / b division igcd(a,b) greatest common divisor a ^ b exponentiation ilcm(a,b) least common multiple signum(n) sign of a number n ! factorial abs(n) absolute value min(a,b) minimum max(a,b) maximum

 • See also the mod, modp, and mods commands. The mod operator evaluates the expression e over the integers modulo m.  It incorporates facilities for doing finite field arithmetic and polynomial and matrix arithmetic over finite fields, including factorization.
