Function Visualization
Long the standard for high-quality function and surface visualization, Mathematica incorporates a host of original numeric, symbolic and geometric algorithms that automate the immediate creation of highly aesthetic and technically correct 2D and 3D visualizations.
Plot curves of one or more functions f (x)
DiscretePlot plot discrete sequences f (n)
Plot3D 3D surfaces of one or more functions f (x, y)
ContourPlot contour plot for a function f (x, y) or curve f (x, y)=c
ContourPlot3D 3D contour plot for a function f (x, y, z) or surface f (x, y, z)=c
DensityPlot density plot for a function f (x, y)
ParametricPlot 2D parametric curves or regions
ParametricPlot3D 3D parametric curves or surfaces
RegionPlot 2D regions defined by inequalities
RegionPlot3D 3D regions defined by inequalities
