Scientists and engineers often need to compute mathematical functions that depend in a complicated way on their parameters. Such functions-especially those whose analytical properties researchers have studied extensively-are called transcendental functions or special functions. There are three important reasons for visualizing such functions: to better understand their analytical properties, to clarify the science leading to their use, and to improve computing algorithms by seeing how the function depends on its parameters
