I know that the complex_plot function can represent a complex function using colors. Is there a way of using it to color parametric surfaces? In other words, can I define the colors of the points of a parametric surface in terms of the two parameters in a natural and easy way?

http://ask.sagemath.org/question/11354/controling-the-color-of-a-parametric-surface/?comment=16180#post-id-16180@niles: I have seen that link before, but thanks for sharing it anyway. What I want is a little more complex than that I think. I want the colors to represent the values of a complex-valued function defined on a parametric surface. I don't really know how to adapt the answer given in that thread to achieve what I want. Maybe you have some ideas?Thu, 01 May 2014 15:19:57 -0500http://ask.sagemath.org/question/11354/controling-the-color-of-a-parametric-surface/?comment=16180#post-id-16180Comment by niles for <p>I would like to represent a complex valued function on a parametric surface.

http://ask.sagemath.org/question/11354/controling-the-color-of-a-parametric-surface/?comment=16179#post-id-16179@Raul: Yeah, the answer there didn't work for me either, and I haven't (yet) gotten back to it. This is definitely possible in some sense, but a simple interface to it is not currently available. I don't have anything beyond the sage worksheet linked to from ticket #12212Fri, 02 May 2014 03:50:19 -0500http://ask.sagemath.org/question/11354/controling-the-color-of-a-parametric-surface/?comment=16179#post-id-16179Comment by Raul for <p>I would like to represent a complex valued function on a parametric surface.

http://ask.sagemath.org/question/11354/controling-the-color-of-a-parametric-surface/?comment=16184#post-id-16184I guess I'm looking for something that looks like the following picture:

http://ask.sagemath.org/question/11354/controling-the-color-of-a-parametric-surface/?answer=16124#post-id-16124Hi.
If I understand correctly, your question is related to this section of the Sage Trac (colormaps on implicit and parametric plots):
http://trac.sagemath.org/ticket/12212
It seems that the feature still requires some work.Wed, 30 Apr 2014 05:52:10 -0500http://ask.sagemath.org/question/11354/controling-the-color-of-a-parametric-surface/?answer=16124#post-id-16124Comment by Raul for <p>Hi.

http://ask.sagemath.org/question/11354/controling-the-color-of-a-parametric-surface/?comment=16181#post-id-16181I see, thank you for the link. I guess I should have to look for some workaround in the meantime.
