I think this post is a little cursed!
It can't be appeared correctly!
I will try another attempt!
---------------------------------------------------
I would like to apologise for the mistakes which obviously contained my
previous post.
Here comes the correct one:
---------------------------------------------------------------
I would like to know why the Plot3D function does not complain about
the following command
(note there is a singularity at y=0)
Plot3D[Sin[x]/y, {x, -10, 10}, {y, -10, 10}]
whereas it does complain (a lot!) about the following
Plot3D[Sin[x]/y, {x, -10, 10}, {y, 0, 10}]
I believe it has to do with the non-adaptive algorithm used by Plot3D,
but even the command
Plot3D[Sin[x]/y, {x, -10, 10}, {y, -10, 10},PlotPoints->100]
does not change the behavior.
Note that I don't have any problem why the Plot function does not
complain about the following command
Plot[Sin[x]/x, {x, 0, 10}];
since I understand that the adaptive algorithm actually does not sample
points at x=0
Cases[%, {(x_)?NumberQ, (y_)?NumberQ} /;
x >= 0 && y > 0.9, Infinity]
I really appreciate any comments/guidance/insight.
Thanks
Dimitris
