`surfc(z)`

`surfc(x,y,z)`

Inputs | |

`z` |
An `mXn` matrix of the function values to plot. |

`x` |
Either a vector of length `n` or a matrix of size `mXn` . |

`y` |
Either a vector of length `m` or a matrix of size `mXn` . |

The inputs

`x`

and `y`

should either be both vectors, or matrices of the
indicated size. In the former case, the function is assumed to be
of the form `z[i,j]=f(x[j], y[i])`

. Otherwise, the functional form `z[i,j]=f(x[i,j],y[i,j])`

is assumed.
Each region defined by

`x[i,j]<=x<=x[i,j+1], y[i,j]<=y<=y[i+1,j]`

is
filled with the same color, which is determined by the average `z`

value
in this region. Further, the boundaries of of each of these regions are drawn
in black.
The contour plot of the function (lines along which the interpolated value of

`z`

is constant) is also drawn in the `x-y`

plane.
