Properties & Relations(5)

FromSphericalCoordinates checks that inputs obey the restrictions of spherical coordinates:

This point violates the condition on the polar angle :

Extract the symbolic transform from CoordinateTransformData to apply it to singular points:

The conversion back to spherical coordinates is not well defined:

is a special case of CoordinateTransform:

FromSphericalCoordinates[{x,y,z}] uses spherical coordinates about the axis:

FromPolarCoordinates[{x,y,z}] uses spherical coordinates about the axis:

The spherical coordinates used by FromPolarCoordinates generalize to higher dimensions:

FromSphericalCoordinates changes the coordinate values of points:

TransformedField changes the coordinate expressions for fields:
