This page uses the technique of ray tracing (via
Povray) to plot algebraic surfaces,
i.e., surfaces defined by implicit algebraic equations.
This technique gives excellent results, but requires a relatively
important amount of time for the computation. You are therefore asked to
be patient, and not to ask for plots of too high quality (size and
fluidity of animation).
