Hi, what may ContourPlot3D[] do ? compute a surface c=f[x,y,z] ??? Regards Jens "Skip Egley" <Skip.Egley at synopsys.com> schrieb im Newsbeitrag news:ecmh1d$9de$1 at smc.vnet.net... | Hi, | | I have a rather complicated scalar function over real space, let's call it S(x,y,z). | | Would it be possible to get Mathematica to find the equi-contours of this function spaced by a certain delta S, and delta x, delta y, delta z, or better yet, delta l = sqrt ( (delta x)^2 + (delta y)^2 + (delta z)^2 )? | | That's a small l above (delta l), for line length. | | Now that I think about it, I would have to give it an error tolerance, let's say epsilon.
