MeshShading

MeshShading
is an option for plotting functions that gives lists of colors to use for regions between mesh divisions.
  • MeshShading specifies that directives should be used cyclically for each of the n+1 regions defined by n mesh divisions.
  • MeshShading specifies that the should be used cyclically for the ^(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.
