convert procedures into their algebraic form
any Maple procedure
The convert(procedure, algebraic) command converts a given procedure into its algebraic form, if possible. For example, the procedure z -> sin(z) + 1 is converted into sin + 1. Remember that in Maple 1(z) = 1.
When the conversion to the algebraic form is not possible, the received procedure itself is returned. For a conversion to be possible, the given procedure is expected to have a calling sequence, that is, be a procedure of some arguments, and return an algebraic expression of its arguments containing only constants or functions of the given arguments.
Sometimes, when applying an algebraic expression, to simplify any constant "applied to some variables", use simplify/constants.
Applying the algebraic form generates π⁡a,z.
Procedures where the calling sequence is not given are not converted
In other cases, the conversion is not possible: objects which are not constant and not functions of the procedure's arguments are present:
It cannot be expressed in terms of only f.
z in the procedure body prevents the conversion.
Without z the conversion is feasible.
