Also from the back cover: “MATHEMATICA is today’s most advanced technical computing system. It features a rich programming environment, two- and three-dimensional graphics capabilities and hundreds of sophisticated, powerful programming and mathematical functions using state-of-the-art algorithms. Combined with a user-friendly interface, and a complete mathematical typesetting system, Mathematica offers an intuitive, easy-to-handle environment of great power and utility.
“… 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.
- Step-by-step introductions to all of Mathematica graphics capabilities
- Comprehensive presentation of two- and three-dimensional graphics primitives and directives, as well as potting capabilities for functions and data
- Hundreds of unique and innovative scientific visualizations and artistic images
- can be edited and manipulated; striking color graphics and animations are included on the DVD.”
- Website for book with additional materials and updates …
- Accompanying DVD contains all material as an electronic book with complete, executable Mathematica versions 4 and 5 compatible code and programs, rendered color graphics, and animations.”
