When we talk about ``the point with coordinates (*x*,*y*,*z*)'' or
``the surface with equation *f*(*x*,*y*,*z*)'', we will always have in mind
cartesian coordinates. If a formula involves another type of
coordinates, this will be stated explicitly.

Please refer to Section 1.1 for information on substitutions and transformations relevant also to the three-dimensional case.
