This 3D graph shows graphs of selected mathematical functions in 3D. It is more of a tour than a tool. All functions have had boundaries and constants pre-set, to maximize your viewing enjoyment. It is an extension of my 3-d wireframe applet. Drag your mouse over the graph to rotate it!
This spinnable graph is designed to be fun, even if you can't read mathematical equations. Just pick some gobble*de^gook at random from one of the 'functions' menus to the right, and then look at the pretty picture - it is a 3-dimensional graph of the function you chose.
The X, Y, and Z axes are where they are for illustration purposes only. Mathematicians would switch the Y and Z axes with eachother. Computer graphics people would have at least one of the axes pointing in the other direction, away from you. I wanted a set of axes that conformed to computer style axes (it is a computer program, after all), but allowed the user to see all 3 of the directional arrows (Standard in mathematical illustrations) when looking at the 'front' of the model.
As mentioned above, all of these equations have pre-selected boundaries and constants, so you don't have to spend 5 minutes fiddling around to get a good fit and see how cool the equation is capable of looking in 3D. Some of the functions may seem backwards, but they simply have a negative constant somewhere, to make them look prettier.
