Re: Tricky visualization of maximization problem


David Park's DrawGraphics package, which costs a nominal fee, can help
you do exactly what you want.

I wrote some messy code that uses the package in this way, which you
can see here:

I'll eventually revise it, but I'm sure you wanted an answer yesterday.

Maybe he will write you personally.
