in Mathematica 3.0, is it possible to plot a density or contour plot of a (real, scalar valued) function defined on a curved surface (that i would dislay with ParametricPlot3D) like a sphere or a torus rather than on the plane? if so, how is this done? thanks for the info, +---------------------------------+ | Alan Calvitti | | Control Engineering | | Case Western Reserve University | +---------------------------------+
