A university math lecturer. I think I still also remember how some research gets done. I also like to think I still remember basics of programming and bug hunting, but recent events made me unsure :-). Mostly asking and learning at Mathematica.SE. A proud owner of a shiny copy of Mathematica 9.

comment Code performance problem
Vedat, select this code snippet from your Mathematica notebook, copy it, and paste it into your answer. Then select it with your mouse again, and turn it into a preformatted code block (click the curly braces on the toolbar above the edit window). An image is useless to answerers. But we can copy/paste that preformatted snippet to our own Mathematica notebooks and test it/ play with it.

Accepting this to let the question drift to the background. My learning process continued in this question. Thanks all, once more!

comment How to control format options of an exported animation?
Oh dear! @belisarius is right! How did I miss that <insert blushing emoticon>? It zooms just right, too! Would you like to write that as an answer, please? This is the first time I have ever seen a Mathematica-option needing quotation marks.

Oh, @JasonB, your observation was the key to solving all my problems. If you feel like posting it as an answer, I would surely accept that :-)

Thanks, @Jason. <insert blush emoticon> That was silly of me. I added the ParametricPlot later, and didn't test it. Of course, in Mathematica the error message flashes out so fast, but I keep seeing the errorneous frame in animation.

@cormullion: No, I'm not sure. But embedding the resulting .swf to a .pdf- document produced by LaTeX should be possible according to the documentation of a package called media9. My attempts to do that have failed, and I felt that something might be wrong with the .swf-file. It is quite possible that I am wrong.

You might get better responses at SX dedicated to Mathematica.

comment ParametricPlot3D output without the meshlines
@J.M. are that kind of tricks explained somewhere in Mathematica Book? Looks like it is a time for a refresher course.

@R.M. The last time I tried it I ran into some kind of problems. Cisco VPN and F-Secure virus protection didn't like each other. There were other problems, too. Undoubtedly they have worked on those. May be I should keep asking questions?

+1 Thanks, J.M. This works, too! Worth remembering!
