The Mathematica GuideBook for Graphics provides a comprehensive step-by-step development on 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 artistic images and logos. Mathematica graphics functions are discussed in detail, explained in numerous examples and put to work in programs which are all contained on the accompanying DVD.
