When I evaluate Plot3D[(10 (x - y))/((x^2 + y^2 + 1) E^-((x - y)^2 + (x + y)^2)), {x, -10, 10}, {y, -10, 10}] in Version 6.0.2 on 32-bit Windows Vista I don't obtain any error messages, nor do I get a very interesting plot. If the function represents anything physical it would be interesting to know what it is and what the important features are. It is something of a challenge to attempt to graphically represent the function because the exponential factor is so dominant. It is the type of plot that might require multiple images. Near the origin the function is just a simple slanted plane.
