Two-Dimensional Graphics | Three-Dimensional Graphics | Contour and Density Plots

This book provides a comprehensive step-by-step development of how to use Mathematica to visualize functions and data, manipulate graphics, and optimize their appearance. Two-dimensional graphics, contour plots, plots of surfaces, free-form three-dimensional surfaces, and animations are the core topics. Hundreds of detailed examples and programs show a large variety of visualization techniques, algorithms, methods, and tricks. These tools allow the reader to create virtually any possible graphic, from simple curves to scientific visualizations and artistic images and logos. Mathematica graphics functions are discussed in detail, explained in numerous examples, and put to work in programs that are all contained on the accompanying DVD.

Unique features:
  • Step-by-step introductions to all of Mathematica's graphics capabilities
  • Comprehensive presentation of two- and three-dimensional graphics primitives and directives, as well as plotting capabilities for functions and data
  • Hundreds of unique and innovative scientific visualizations and artistic images
  • Website for book with additional materials and updates: http://www.MathematicaGuideBooks.org
  • Accompanying DVD containing all material as an electronic book with complete and executable Mathematica code and programs, rendered color graphics, and animations
