The following works for me:
f[x_, y_] := 1/2 {x + y, x - y, x^2 - y^2}
ParametricPlot3D[
f[x, y], {x, -1000000, 1000000}, {y, -1000000, 1000000},
BoxRatios -> {1, 1, 1/4}]
But I don't know why your * symbols are being changed and I would certainly
regard it as a problem and contact WRI Support. What does the InputForm, or
FullForm look like? What does the underlying expression look like? (Use
Shift+Ctrl+E, or Menu/Format/Show Expression on the cell.)

Greetings,
I would like to see the graph of u=.5(x+y), v=.5(x-y), w= z - .5(x^2 -
y^2).
I entered this into the command-line of Mathematica:
ParametricPlot3D[{0.5` (x + y), 0.5` (x - y),
z - 0.5` (x^2 - y^2)}, {x, -1000000, 1000000}, {y, -1000000,
1000000}]
All I get is a big empty box spanning from -1 to 1 on all sides. Is
there something I need to do to make this work?
TIA
P.S. For some reason, Mathematica changes my "*" symbols to "'"
symbols. Does ' mean multiply?
