|Title:||Tensor Product Grid Generation for Complex Surface Visualizations in a Digital Library of Mathematical Functions|
|Published:||May 25, 2009|
|Abstract:||We have used tensor product B-spline grids to develop accurate plots that wnhance the understanding of high level mathematical functions described in the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) Digital Library of Mathematical Functions. The graph data is placed in a web based format such as VRML (Virtual Reality Modeling Language) or X3D (Extensible 3D) to provide an environment where users can interactively manipulate complex function surfaces. The effectiveness of the grid generation mapping in producing visualizations that accurately capture key function features such as zeros, poles, and branch cuts is examined.|
