I am looking for a software package that can solve simple random equations like f(x,y) as an "input" and plot the 3-D results as the "output" using x, y and jx. My object is to view both real and imaginary parts of the graph on one x, y and jx 3-D coordinate system while using y as the independent variable. Complex math software packages are not required for this limited simple task. Please focus in on the equation input and the 3-D plot output.
There are two very powerful software packages that come to mind.
The first one is "mathematica" from Wolfram research at http://wolfram.com/ and the academic student price is ...
This describes several types of math software.
