RE: Re: Re: Suggestion: Visualization of complex functions with Mathematica

I'd like to add the ComplexAnalysis package at my web site below:

This package contains complex analysis routines and complex graphics
routines. There are routines that convert the regular 2D Graphics into
equivalent complex forms. For example ComplexLine[{z1,z2,z3...}] takes
complex numbers for the point coordinates. There are routines for producing
one or two panel plots or animations of complex functions. Each panel may be
one of the following plot types.
1) Cartesian/PolarSurface - Plots the surface s[f[z]] where f is a complex
function and s is a real function.
2) Cartesian/PolarCoded3D - Plots the surface s[f[z]] and then puts a
colored contour plot on the surface representing r[f[z]] where s and r are
two real functions.
3) Cartesian/PolarGrid - Basically the ComplexMap routines from Mathematica,
but you can combine multiple grids of different colors.
4) Cartesian/PolarContour - 2D colored contour plots with labeling of all or
selected contours.
5) CodedDensity - A density plot using color to code the complex
information. There is one color function provided that codes modulus and
argument. The user can also write and use his own color routines.
6) ComplexVector - Attaches a scaled vector representing the complex value
to each of a set of points. The user supplies whatever set of points he
wishes. This is also useful with animation on a selected point or points to
trace the behavior of the function on paths in the complex plane.
7) RiemannSphere - Maps any set of graphics primitives, but usually a
complex map grid, through a complex function to the Riemann sphere.
The animations are rotation of 3D surfaces and homotopies between two
complex functions. Other custom animations may also be produced. All of the
plot types also allow the user to add extra graphics primitives to embellish

I apologize.
The correct URL (I checked it out now) is

While searching the web for the correct address, I've also found the
following packages that can be used to plot complex functions (I'm sure that
there are many more). Some are new to me, but the original poster might find
them interesting enough to try'em out.
They can be reached by using the author name, the package name in Google
(www.google.com) For example fill in the search field with "ComplexPlot.m"
or "complex mathematica filetype:m".

Complex.m by Goeran Andersson
    *zListPlot[ zlist, opts] pointplots the complex numbers in zlist.
    *zwPlot[ z, w, {t, tmin, tmax}, opts] plots the complex mapping
     w=f(z), z=z(t).

ComplexPlot.m by Jeff Olson
    *ComplexPlot[func, {fx, fy}, {t, tmin, tmax}]
    *ComplexListPlot[{z1, z2, ...}] plots a list of complex numbers.
    *ComplexVectorPlot[func, {xmin, xmax}, {ymin, ymax}]
    *ComplexPartialPlots[func, {xmin, xmax}, {ymin, ymax}]
    *ComplexColorPlot[func, {xmin, xmax}, {ymin, ymax}]
    *ComplexContourPlot[func, {xmin, xmax}, {ymin, ymax}]
    *CartesianMap[f, {x0, x1, (dx)}, {y0, y1, (dy)}] plots the image
     of the cartesian coordinate lines under the function f.
    *PolarMap[f, {r0:0, r1, (dr)}, {phi0, phi1, (dphi)}] plots the
     image of the polar coordinate lines under the function f.

ComplexPlot3D by Kevin McIsaac
   *ComplexPlot3D[fn, {x, x0, x2, (dx)}, {x, x0, x2, (dx)}, (options)]
   Plots in the complex plane. The absolute value is represented
   by the height and the phase is represented by the color

ComplexMap by Roman Maeder
    *CartesianMap[f, {x0, x1, (dx)}, {y0, y1, (dy)}] plots the image
     of the cartesian coordinate lines under the function f.
    *PolarMap[f, {r0:0, r1, (dr)}, {phi0, phi1, (dphi)}] plots the
    image of the polar coordinate lines under the function f.

Transform2DPlot by Xah Lee
    This package exports the function Transform2DPlot and
    Transform2DGraphics that plot the image of the plane under
    arbitrary transformation function f:R^2->R^2 or f:C^1->C^1.
    It can be easily adapted to make it plot conformal maps.
    It is possibile to write a shell that calls the procedures with a
    syntax similar to that of ComplexMap. (years ago I wrote one,
    only a few lines long - no big deal since Xah Lee's procedures do
    it all. If someone is interested, though, and has already
    downloaded the original package by Xah Lee let me know and
    I'll send it to them)

ComplexMapPlot by Theodore W. Gray and Jerry Glynn
    This one is included in their book "Exploring Mathematics with
    Mathematica", Addison-Wesley, 1991. I don't think it is
    available on the web. I had found a reference to it in a gallery
    of complex functions (I saved it in rtf format without the
    pictures!!! How smart : )). But if the original poster has access to
    the book he can find out if what it does suits him.

Re: Re: Re: Mathematica language issues
I think most people this entire discussion does not have any practical importance. Obviously something like this: 2*Unevaluated[1+1] 2 Unevaluated[1+1] is extremly unlikely to have any practical use. After all, we use Unevaluated when we want something to remain unevaluated, whereas here only two things can happen: either one will be left with Unevaluated[something] or the "something" will evaluate. Both of these outcomes are obsiously undesirable. Why should one ever use anything like this in a program? In fact if for some unimaginable reason somone needed this sort of thing and wanted Unevaluated to be removed all he needs to do is to ensure that some transformation that does not change the value of the expression will take place during evaluation. For example, one way to make sure thsi will happen woudl be: a*2*Unevaluated[(1 + 1)/a] 4 Obvioulsy this or a similar method can be used in all cases. There are no imaginable cases where one woudl wihs to be left with Unevaluated, if one wanted that one should use Hold or HoldForm. This also deals with the issue of "unpredictability". But for me that is non issue. I understand that there are some people who love life to be perfectly predictable and go to a great length to ensure that (particularly in the case of election results in certain countries) but there others who find a little unpredictability, experimentation and the sense of discovery t...

Re: Re: Re: Any Mathematica 6 book yet?
I must agree about the debugger. I was very excited by the release of Workbench 1.0 because of the promise of a good debugger. I even took a course on it. The reality is that Workbench is so hard to use ( I can't bring in my old code and debug changes- it just doesn't work) that I never use it. So I'm back to using Print statements again. I love Mathematica but would love to have an easy to use debugger with break points, etc. Oh well.

Re: Re: Re: Mathematica language issues #2
So far I could resist the temptation to participate in this discussion. However, in his mail Maxim Rytin presents some examples of which he thinks the result is unpredictable. Maybe there is some interest in how I predict the results of simple commands in which Unevaluated occurs. Of course these examples are of no practical interest. Unevaluated is meant to pass unevaluated arguments to a function body and as such it works perfectly. No one in practice is interested in (1+1)*Unevaluated[2+2]. The basic principle has been clearly explained by Andrzej Kozlowsky. Suppose we have a ...

For some interesting reading take a look at Chapter 2 in Edward R. Tufte's 'Visual Explanations'. Dr. John Snow found the cause of the 1854 Cholera Epidemic in London by FIRST plotting the case data on a map of London, and THEN doing the analysis. In the case of the Challenger Space Shuttle disaster, although they were aware of the potential problem, the technicians never made the proper graphic that related risk to temperature in past launches and thus failed to present a convincing case for not launching.

Re: Re: Re: Re: Newly Released Mathematica 5.1 Delivers Unmatched Performance for Handling Data #2
Speaking of colors, are any of you aware of a standard color palette or utility that electronically automates conversion of a given color scheme legend to a palette viewable by students who have trichromatic or dichromatic colorblindness? For example, to such people the area below the light blue in this graph http://www.wolfram.com/products/mathematica/usersanduses/experience/images/s urna3dvolume.th.jpg might be viewed as brown instead of a continuous green-yellow-red gradient. While colors are used as teaching tools in math and geography, colorblindness (like nearsightedness) is not a learning disability if a correction for the distortion is made and the colorblind do see some gradient of the light curve shifted more towards red or green. Let me know if you have come across any palette standards (other black-grey-white) that are color blind accessible or colorblind simulation utilities that can be used.

Re: Re: Mathematica slows down
Dr. Bob, Presumably it has to do with whether intermediate results are effectively cached.

Here is the original algorithm (except Print) NumP=15000; Timing[For[k=1,k<NumP,k++, Gap[1]=Prime[k+1]-Prime[k]; Gap[2]=Prime[k+2]...

Re: Re: Types in Mathematica
I like this idea. Does the mathematical/algebraic "programming" style scale up to large problems? Are there examples? Or perhaps it doesn't strictly scale, but is better applied judiciously. It could be used to steer a code at a very high level, or conversely, used in the gaps (the Mathematica-in-the-gaps argument). Conventional programming would make up the difference. If indeed mathematical programming is not the silver-bullet paradigm, where should the conventional (though modern) programming be done? Within or without Mathematica? If within, then we've c...
