Hi all,

I want to plot a vector field in cylindrical coordinates. While all the
packages are there, I don't seem to be able to do this. Would anybody know
the specific instructions?

I should add that this is a 2d vector field. Such fields are x-y
plottable with PlotVectorField (or something like that). When I try to
change coordinate systems with the VectorAnalysis package (again the name
might be slightly different; I'm not in the office) I don't get the
plotting package to recognize the new coordinates.

I guess, a solution along these lines or in a somehow different way (e.g.
plotting streamlines) would work.

Thanks for your help, John
