My text book on Curves and Surfaces is available as a PDF file that has hyperlinks to some 80 Mathematica notebook illustrating concepts and performing computations:

Matthias:

Wow!

I had a great time playing around with the MMA notebooks, and I really like the way you've kept them clutter-free.

The PDF is beautifully done. Can you PLEASE explain a bit about your workflow and how you produced the final document? I'm assuming LaTeX, correct? And post-editing diagrams in Adobe Illustrator? (The more details you can provide, the better. :mrgreen: )

Anyways, awesome job and thanks for sharing! (And please, if you have time, give us some details on your workflow!)

PS - You also might want to check out the following link: http://touchpress.com/ Touch Press is a spin-off company which released the 'Elements' iPad app, by Theodore Gray. Maybe you should contact them and show them what you've done so far?
