The Golden E-Book of Graphs of Mathematical Functions
by E. Pérez
Number of pages: 92
This book is about surfaces and graphs of selected equations plotted from different viewing angles as an aid to visualize their behavior. Surfaces are categorized as real surfaces, when they come from equations of strictly real variables, or transcomplex surfaces, when they are the outcome of plots of transcomplex variables. The reader is assumed to be a little related with the topics of graphing plane curves and surfaces.

A text on vector and matrix algebra from the viewpoint of computer graphics. It covers most vector and matrix topics needed for college-level computer graphics text books. Useful to computer science students interested in game programming.
The aim of this text is to develop an informal, light introduction to the world of fractal geometry and to inspire further research into the subject, whether your interest is of a pure, applied or even recreational nature.
by Jean Gallier - Morgan Kaufmann
This book offers both a theoretically unifying understanding of polynomial curves and surfaces and an effective approach to implementation that you can bring to bear on your own work -- whether you are a graduate student, scientist, or practitioner.
The purpose of this book is to show how the computer can draw technically perfect pictures of Julia and Mandelbrot sets. All the necessary theory is explained and some words are said about how to put the things into a computer program.
