 Calling Sequence  Parameters  Description Examples  Compatibility

Calling Sequence

complexplot3d([expr1, expr2], x=a..b, y=c..d)

complexplot3d([f1, f2],  a.. b,  c.. d)

complexplot3d(expr3, z=a + b*I..c + d*I)

complexplot3d(f2, a + b*I..c + d*I)

Parameters

 expr1, expr2 - algebraic; expressions in parameters x and y f1, f2 - procedures; functions to be plotted expr3 - algebraic; expression in parameter z a, b, c, d - realcons; endpoints of parameter ranges

Description

• The four different calling sequences to the complexplot3d function above all define plots in three-dimensional space for expressions or procedures mapping

• For 2-D complex plots, see plots/complexplot.

• For plotting functions from to , complexplot3d plots the first component while coloring the graphic using the second component.

• For plotting functions from to , complexplot3d plots the magnitude of the function while coloring the resulting surface using the argument of the function.

• The first two calling sequences plot expressions and procedures, respectively, from to . In the second case f1 and f2 take two arguments and return a real value. The form of the range specifications determine whether an expression or a procedure is to be plotted. The last two calling sequences plot expressions and procedures, respectively, from to .

• The range components a, b, c, and d must evaluate to real constants. Note that operator notation is used in the second and fourth calls, that is, the procedure name is given without parameters specified, and the ranges must be given simply in the form a..b, rather than as an equation.

• The complex plots colored by argument have a color bar displayed by default. It can be suppressed by adding colorbar=false to the arguments.

• Any additional arguments are interpreted as options as described in the plot3d/option help page.  For example, the option where m and n are positive integers specifies that the plot is to be constructed on an m by n grid instead of on the default 25 by 25 grid.

 > g := proc(z) local w; w := Re(z)*exp(Im(z)*I); w/(exp(w)-1) end proc:

Compatibility

• The plots[complexplot3d] command was updated in Maple 2024.

• The colorbar option was introduced in Maple 2024.
