mpp.exe is a collection of 10 programs:
 MPP (Mathematics Plotting Program)
 Root (Root finding by Newton, bisection or secant)
 Integral (Evaluate with trapezoidal, Simpson, or Riemann
sums)
 Slope (Definition of derivative illustration)
 Implicit (Including tangent lines)
 Infinite series (Plots terms or partial sums of infinite
series)
 Contour (Plots up to 15 contour lines)
 Vector Field (Plots vector fields)
 Double integrals (Rec. or polar coor.)
 Triple integrals (Rec. cylindrical or spherical coor.)
mpp3d.exe is designed to plot surfaces and curves
in 3space. It was written by the principal author of MPP and
shares many features with that program. The program will plot
surfaces defined eleven different ways and space curves defined
two ways.
 z=f(x,y)
 y=f(x,z)
 x=f(y,z)
 z=f(r,_) cylindrical coordinates
 p=f(_,_) spherical coordinates
 x=f(u,v), y=g(u,v), z=h(u,v) parametric surfaces
 y=f(x) rotated about y=c
 y=f(x) rotated about x=c
 x=g(y) rotated about y=c
 x=g(y) rotated about x=c
 Surface from a data file
 x=f(t), y=g(t), z=h(t) parametric space curve
 Space curve from a data file
mppdoc.zip contains the documentation for both
of the above programs and mppexam.zip contains a large number
of examples which can be called from these programs.
