Dear people, I have found the following problem. I have ploted f[x_, y_] := Sqrt[(x^2 + y^2)^3] with Plot3D in order to see how it looks. Then I ploted f[x, 0] (which is x^3) between -1 and 1 and I got a symmetric plot. It seems that Mathematica plot the function Sqrt[x^6] or (x^2)^(3/2) and evaluate first the symmetric term (x^6 or x^2)... Does anyone knows what it happens and how can it be fixed? Thanks in advance! Lautaro Vergara
