About the graphic at the top of this page
This is the graph of the function
f(x,y) = (x^{2} + y^{2}) sin(x) cos(y). I generated the plot
in Maple V, Release 5 using the command
plot3d((x^2+y^2)*sin(x)*cos(y),x = 4 .. 4,y = 4 .. 4);
Several of the fun things we'll do this semester is learn how to find the maximum and
minimum values of functions of two variables like this and how to find the
tangent plane to the surface at any point.
