Symbolic Programming and Large Objects

I am designing a perfect reconstruction filter bank that is
adaptable to multiwavelets. The project involves writing symbolic code
that produces several transfer functions with three given structures:
Space Design, Cascade Design, Roesser's Design.
For the Cascade Design, the symbolic code involves constructing
a general 4x4 orthogonal matrix, R, using Givens rotation matrices,
reindexing its entries 35 times to produce 35 general orthogonal
matrices, Ri, and multiplying all of these matrices together to produce
a single matrix, PolyH. Then, the entrees of PolyH will be combined to
form a 4x2 matrix, H. Each entree of H will be integrated over one of two
intervals to form the objective functions that will be minimized using
the optimization package CFSQP.
I am runing the maple code on a HP K200 with 1Gb of RAM. When I
run cascadeNP1L.txt I get normal results; however, when I run
cascadeNP2L.txt or cascadeNP35L.txt I get the following error message:

Error, (in expand/bigprod) object too large

1, 2 and 35 represent the largest value the iteration index, deg,
achieves in each of the programs, and deg is the McMillan degree of the
I have corresponded with a maple technical
supporter and his response is that my programs generate objects that have
more than 2^16 terms. I have tried to partition the code to get around
this technicality. The problem is that even without the integration
section(cascade2LNOINT.txt, cascade35LNOINT.txt), which is the only part
of the code that can be partitioned, I still get the error message:

Error, (in expand/bigprod) object too large

I have set up a web site at which contains the maple code
for the Cascade Design. Any suggestion on how to get around these
technicalitys or knowledge of a different language that would solve
this problem will be much appreciated.
Thank you for your time.

PS. I will summarize and post all suggestions.
