h = mesh(...)
mesh(X,Y,Z) draws a wireframe mesh with color determined by Z, so color is proportional to surface height. If X and Y are vectors, length(X) = n and length(Y) = m, where [m,n] = size(Z). In this case, (X(j), Y(i), Z(i,j)) are the intersections of the wireframe grid lines; X and Y correspond to the columns and rows of Z, respectively. If X and Y are matrices, (X(i,j), Y(i,j), Z(i,j)) are the intersections of the wireframe grid lines.
mesh(...,C) draws a wireframe mesh with color determined by matrix C. MATLAB® performs a linear transformation on the data in C to obtain colors from the current colormap. If X, Y, and Z are matrices, they must be the same size as C.
mesh(axes_handles,...) plots into the axes with handle axes_handle instead of the current axes (gca).
h = mesh(...) returns a handle to a Surfaceplot graphics object.
Evaluate sin(r)/r, or the sinc function
figure; [X,Y] = meshgrid(-8:.5:8); R = sqrt(X.^2 + Y.^2) + eps; Z = sin(R)./R; mesh(Z);
Displaying the sinc function between -8 and 8 on a 2-D grid
figure; mesh(X,Y,Z); axis([-8 8 -8 8 -0.5 1]);
Specifying color matrix for the data in the mesh function
C = gradient(Z); figure; mesh(X,Y,Z,C);
Specifying the property name-value pairs in the argument list.
C = del2(Z); h = axes; mesh(h,Z,C,'FaceLighting','gouraud','LineWidth',0.3);
mesh does not accept complex inputs.
A mesh is drawn as a Surfaceplot graphics object with the viewpoint specified by view(3). The face color is the same as the background color (to simulate a wireframe with hidden-surface elimination), or none when drawing a standard see-through wireframe. The current colormap determines the edge color. The hidden command controls the simulation of hidden-surface elimination in the mesh, and the shading command controls the shading model.
