New in 7.0: Visualization & Graphics
Building on Mathematica's unique base of visualization and graphics capabilities, Mathematica 7 adds several important new areas. Emphasizing integration and automation, Mathematica 7 introduces built-in vector visualization, automated dynamic charting, and fully general splines and NURBS.
StreamPlot make a stream plot from a vector field function
VectorPlot plot vectors from a vector field function
StreamDensityPlot superimpose plots of vector and scalar field functions
New Visualization Functions
DiscretePlot plot discrete sequences specified by formulas
