Hi,

I have found intresting article (in Polish):

http://www.mimuw.edu.pl/delta/artykuly/delta1009/0910-07-czy_komputer.pdf

about ploting 2D function.
Authot says that because of rasterisation of curve, it is possible to 
find such float number n that graf of sin(n*x)
looks like graf of sin(x).

for Octave n= 71.372
for Maxima n = 403.124
for Mu-Pad n= 151.8
for Mathemathica ? ( not found)

In my Maxima it does not work ( I see graf that is different than sin(x) ).

What do you think about it ?
