This book provides a comprehensive collection of nearly 1,000 illustrations of curves and surfaces often used or encountered in mathematics, science, and engineering fields. The accompanying CD-ROM includes Mathematica notebooks of code to construct plots of all the functions presented in the book.
Incorporating more complex curves and surfaces as well as formerly prohibitive graphical plots, this edition includes many chapter reorganizations and better graphical representations while keeping its easy-to-use format. Contents
