Graphics examples

Mathematica is the preeminent symbolic computation package whose utility is greatly enhanced by an extensive set of visualization tools suitable for scientific visualization. There is a basic set of graphics routines which will quickly allow the user to plot functions and data easily in several formats. Mathematica presents a tool kit of graphics primitives enabling users to significantly extend graphics capabilities beyond the basic routines. We will see how easy it is to create animation sequences which considerably augment interpretation as we will see. Because of the power and facility of the graphics routines, we will devote a significant portion of our time to explaining them.
