This zipfile contains the following packages:
  • Date.m contains some simple date-formatting commands
  • EISFormat.m formats integer sequences in the native format expected by Neil Sloane's online encyclopedia of integer sequences. Written by Olivier Gerard and Eric W. Weisstein.
  • GIF.m is a packagelet for setting some useful default settings for GIF exporting.
  • LiveGraphics3D.m implements routines for creating and doing useful manipulations on graphics for creating LiveGraphics3D objects for viewing with Martin Kraus's LiveGraphics3D applet (MathSource item 947). By Martin Kraus and Eric W. Weisstein.
  • Plot.m implements some additional types of 1- and 2-D plots that are useful for creating MathWorld/ScienceWorld figures.
  • POVRay.m implements translation of Mathematica Graphics3D objects to the format used by the ray-tracing program POVRay. Original package written by Roman Maeder; some small functionality added by Eric W. Weisstein for algebraic surfaces.
  • Simplify.m implements some additional simplification routines that can be useful. ToExact can be very useful for converting numerical values that are known to be algebraic into Root objects by suitable calls to NumberTheory`Recognize`Recognize`.
  • Typesetting.m modifies Mathematica's default TraditionalForm typesetting rules to correspond to traditional mathematics notation as practiced in classic textbooks published over the last 100 years or so. Also adds a number of TraditionalForms that are lacking in built-in and package functions.
  • Version.m is a small package for printing out all available useful version-related information for the installed copy of Mathematica. Original version by Kurt Gimbel.
