## Basic Examples(2)

Convert a general point:

A specific point:

## Scope(2)

Convert several points:

A matrix of points:

## Properties & Relations(4)

is a special case of CoordinateTransform:

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

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

The spherical coordinates used by ToPolarCoordinates generalize to higher dimensions:

ToSphericalCoordinates changes the coordinate values of points:

TransformedField changes the coordinate expressions for fields:
