is an option for plotting functions that gives lists of colors to use for regions between mesh divisions.
  • MeshShading->{c1, c2, ...} specifies that directives ci should be used cyclically for each of the n+1 regions defined by n mesh divisions.
  • MeshShading->{{c11, c12, ...}, {c21, ...}, ...} specifies that the cij should be used cyclically for the i, j^(th) patch defined by two mesh functions.
  • If k mesh functions are specified, the setting for MeshShading should be an array of depth k.
  • The default setting MeshShading->None specifies that no additional directives associated with mesh regions should be added.
  • Directives can be combined using Directive[g1, g2, ...].
