Surfaces and Gradients
Requires a Wolfram Notebook System
Interact on desktop, mobile and cloud with the free Wolfram Player or other Wolfram Language products.
Visualize how gradients relate to surfaces.[more]
The points satisfying for a particular value of form the surface shown. As varies, the surface deforms along the normals defined by the vector field , the gradient of , represented by the arrows.
Due to the complex nature of this Demonstration, there may be a delay between changing the variables and updating the graph.[less]
