surface

surface(x, y, z)

Plots a surface, where (x, y) define a grid whose heights are the entries in z. x and y may be Vectors which define a regular grid, orMatrices which define an irregular grid.

Examples

using GLMakie

xs = LinRange(0, 10, 100)
ys = LinRange(0, 15, 100)
zs = [cos(x) * sin(y) for x in xs, y in ys]

surface(xs, ys, zs, axis=(type=Axis3,))

Define the precision matrix (inverse covariance matrix)
for the Gaussian noise matrix.  It approximately coincides
with the Laplacian of the 2d grid or the graph representing
the neighborhood relation of pixels in the picture,
