Hi there everyone Question 1: Thank you for your help with doing piecewise vector field plots. Now I need to know how to do a vector field plot in polar coordinates. Is there something like PolarPlotVectorField? Question 2: Everyone seems to know all these packages that need to be loaded in before they can be used. They're not mentioned in the Wolfram book, at least, not 2nd ed. How do I learn about these packages too? Is there a book or gopher or ftp or web site that I can get a complete listing of all these packages? Question 3: Maple has a tensor package. Matlab has a Schwarz-Christoffel transformation package. Does MMA have either of these? [I have already told Peter about MathTensor. ---moderator] Last Question: I would appreciate to hear what people think is the best MMA book. The Wolfram book is OK, but I'd prefer something that went into more depth and didn't jump around as much (personal preference...). Thanks for making down this far! :-) peter ==== [MESSAGE SEPARATOR] ====
