The Mathematica GuideBook for Graphics
Michael Trott, 2004, Springer-Verlag, 1340 pp., hardcover, includes DVD-ROM
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.
This book is available in the Wolfram Research bookstore.
