 Apr 21 awarded Popular Question Feb 23 awarded Informed Feb 23 comment Drawing circular patches around arbitrary points on a sphere Thank you for your answer! I had already accepted the first answer, as it worked for my purposes, but I definitely appreciate you taking the time to answer my question! Feb 23 comment Drawing circular patches around arbitrary points on a sphere Just for future reference (this can be added into the answer above), Norm[{x,y,z}-{x1,y1,z1}] < c defines a ball of radius c centered at (x1,y1,z1). It is, to me, easier to define the center of the ball to be on the surface of the sphere, so (x1,y1,z1) = R(sin\theta cos\phi, sin\theta sin\phi, cos\theta). Then, to get a circular patch with angular radius \gamma centered at (\theta, \phi) (or, equivalently, (x1,y1,z1)), the radius of the ball (with center (x1,y1,z1)) should be c = R \sqrt{ 2(1 - cos\gamma) }. Feb 23 accepted Drawing circular patches around arbitrary points on a sphere Feb 23 comment Drawing circular patches around arbitrary points on a sphere Thank you very much! I'm still digging into the specifics of RegionFunction and its implementation in your answer, but it seems as though I can control the radius of the circular patch by changing the inequality threshold value and the point about which the patch is centered by changing the constant vector ({1,1,0} in your example). Feb 22 asked Drawing circular patches around arbitrary points on a sphere Feb 22 comment What are the standard colors for plots in Mathematica 10? @Mr.Wizard Thank you so much! It is quite strange, nonetheless, that the first two colors are switched. Feb 18 comment What are the standard colors for plots in Mathematica 10? @Mr.Wizard Do you know what the color scheme for Plot3D is? It seems that the first two colors from the default scheme (#97) for Plot are switched. Thanks! Dec 15 comment Graphics3D/Plot3D rendering issue I also have Eclipse and Android Studio installed on this laptop. Could I have enabled some setting (particularly with Android Studio) that might be causing this rendering issue? Dec 15 comment Graphics3D/Plot3D rendering issue @thedude turning off antialiasing seems to improve the rendering of the numbers on the axes of Plot3D a bit. The two sides of the "bounding box" remain, however, and diagonal lines look a bit more choppy in general due to the lack of antialiasing. Dec 11 revised Graphics3D/Plot3D rendering issue edited title Dec 11 comment Graphics3D/Plot3D rendering issue Also, I should say that it's more than just the font rendering issue. There is also the issue of the unpleasant two-sided "bounding box". Dec 11 comment Graphics3D/Plot3D rendering issue Unfortunately, that also doesn't fix the issues. I appreciate your trying, though! Dec 11 comment Graphics3D/Plot3D rendering issue Thanks for the suggestion, David! Unfortunately, that does not help with the rendering issues. Though larger, the labels are still low resolution, and the two-sided "bounding box" is still there. Do you think it's something beyond Mathematica that is causing the issue? Dec 11 comment Graphics3D/Plot3D rendering issue Windows. I've tried this on another identical-model laptop as well as other computers without this issue, so there's something seemingly specific to my configuration that is causing the problem. Dec 10 asked Graphics3D/Plot3D rendering issue Jul 8 awarded Nice Question Jun 27 awarded Commentator Jun 27 comment How can I return private members of a Mathematica package as the output of package functions without the “PackageNamePrivate” prefix? @Mr.Wizard -- The first link that you provided above is indeed an answer to my second question about obtaining context-free information/definitions of functions in my package. I believe that the main question I had, however, is not addressed by either of the above links, but is instead beautifully answered by Oleksandr below. Would you agree?
