New in 6.0: Function Visualization

Bringing together Mathematica's powerful capabilities in numerics, algebraic computation and now also geometric computation, Version 6.0 took the state of the art for function visualization to a new level—with ubiquitous adaptivity, region- and volume-oriented implicit plotting, automated singularity analysis, arbitrary plotting regions and mesh overlays—as well as a host of innovative automatic aesthetics features.
