3.1 Three-Dimensional Graphics (3-D), Warped Curves

The basic commands that MATLAB uses to draw graphs that generate a line in three dimensions or ** warped curves** are the following:

**plot3(X, Y, Z)**draws the set of points*(X, Y, Z)*, where*X*,*Y*and*Z*are vectors.*X*,*Y*and*Z*can also be arrays of the same size, in which case a graph is made for each triplet of rows and on the same axis. For complex values of X,*Y*and*Z*, the imaginary parts are ignored.**plot3(X,Y,Z,S)**draws the plot (X, Y, Z) with the settings defined in*S*. Usually*S*consists of two-symbols between single ...
