 Dec 20 comment Inverse of function including hyperbolic cotangent Could you elaborate on what you mean by "create a numeric function"? Consider, for instance, the command Plot[InverseFunction[Coth[#] - 1/# &][y], {y, 0, 1}]: would that constitute an acceptable solution?

There are arbitrary elements to that diagram--it could be drawn in many equivalent ways. However, something like it could be implemented in Mathematica, provided we settle on rules to determine which sets of line segments to draw. Jul 10 comment Representing a Stencil of a Finite Difference Operator with Mathematica's Graphics3D @rubenvb That's a great idea. How would you implement it? In this diagram, renderings of such connections would all run into one another. I can think of some possibilities, such as introducing a light 3D grid, or a set of nested transparent cubes, or other such visual references, but perhaps you have a specific form of visualization in mind?

Although I haven't tested it, it looks like a bug to me--evidently from a typographical error. The intention was to to compare the chopped values to zero, not to chop the results of a floating point comparison (which makes little sense anyway). I will go ahead and modify the code in this answer. Thanks again. Apr 30 comment Generating convex polyhedron from face planes? @level1807 I cannot say: as you can see from my example, I had no trouble with $50$ faces. The possible explanations for what you are encountering could range from differences among MMA versions through floating-point errors through some kind of bug in my code. It could be related to the limitations described in the introduction to this answer. If you want to resolve this you will need to find as simple as possible an example that can be reproduced and then offer it in a new question. Good luck!
