Multivariable Calculus Surface Generator for Lec 9 | MIT 18.02

Grasshopper Definition

The grasshopper definition is to come up with visual clues of surfaces covered by one of MIT open lecture series ‘multivariable calculus’. ‘Multi’ here actually means 2, and I had to add a scale factor for z-axis to control the look of the resulted surfaces. Images below are some examples.

1/20*(x^2-y^2)

1/20*(x^2+xy-y^2)

The lecture is available on youtube.
