Dear Group, I'm plotting some trajectories in 3D, and I would like to present results as StremPlot does in 2D. Is there an established method how to generate StreamPlot-like streams and arrows, or I have to work my way from scratch, and extend it to 3D? It would be nice to have some ready- made algorithms on stream segmentation, placement, interpolation and styling. A Stream[...] object seems to be a natural extension to Point, Line and Arrow primitives... Note, that I do NOT generate a vectorfield in 3D, but a set of points for each trajectory, which I want to present as arrows, though not as general arrows, as those simply point to the fixed points of the ODE system, which are displayed as a point in the corner sorrunded with a multitude of arrowheads - pretty crowded. See the picture below (three views of the solutions of a 4D ODE on a 3D simplex). http://img708.imageshack.us/i/simplex3d.png/ Any help/idea is appreciated Istvan
