Jep, saw that too, now, you should write \max_Z&. Changing that your code compiles in article with the amsmath package.

Welcome to TeX.SX! Please make your code compilable (if possible), or at least complete it with \documentclass{...}, the required \usepackage's, \begin{document}, and \end{document}. That may seem tedious to you, but think of the extra work it represents for TeX.SX users willing to give you a hand. Help them help you: remove that one hurdle between you and a solution to your problem.

comment Undefined control sequence error in using spy TikZ library
The error can at least be reduced to just the last of your four tikzpictures, though i can't see yet why that does not work. The others produce nice spies here. Please reduce your MWE. You could of course provide a spythat works - and the last one that does not; though - interestingly - i can't figure out why.

comment Drawing a 3 dimensinal region
The main problem you are facing is, that TikZ does not render images/scenes but draw each of your commands atop the previous ones. As I understood correctly you have a path and a ball, yielding kind of a saussage, right? Have you tried using cylinders? With Tikz I think your 3D shape might be quite difficult due to the non-3D rendering of TikZ. Edit: Welcome to TeX.SE :)

comment Why is TextMate calling “mate --c” when compiling and giving errors
I can confirm, that this happens, though i couldn't find anything in the config or bundle settings.

comment Drawing Ellipsoids in Asymptote; Camera too Close
Yay! You found the problem. Nevertheless it's really not a bug. I wanted to ask that on SF and did some research. Actually (and i don't know why they keep that) transform T = identity4; will give you the reference to the identity (in R3 w/ homogeneous coordinates), which will mess up a lot of things. While copy(...); looks a little clumsy, the way it's used in three.asy is actually transform3 T = identity(4);, which gives you a copy of the identity. Somehow I forgot the () and surprisingly that messes things up like... alot.

Maybe you're right. At least the whole behaviour is strange.

But in your Update you're performing the scaling twice once in the lines of my definition and once using scale? Maybe the error really already occurs when defining T like I do, not when applying it to unitsphere. But i couldnÄt find any other way to define a T, when you know the transformation matrix and the shift.

Thanks for the investigation, i reduced the basis to the unit vectors for the MWE, a more realistic call would be like ellipsoid( (0.26865,-0.064339,0.96109), (-0.9537,-0.15783,0.25602), (-0.13522,0.98537,0.10376), 0.51182, 0.2709, 0.24786, (0,0,0) ), - but the basis is normalized (by MatLab). Concerning transform3 you may be right, i couldn't find any documentation of the internal definition of that data type...

Intersting observations! I'll check tomorrow for the whole field, whether the orthographic will look okay, i took the prespective just because i was used to that :) I won't mind the orthographic if it works with all its occlusions.
