Suppose I wish to plot the function

import numpy as np
for a in A:

That is, I wish to plot the function z over a range of a. Actually the original function was z=a+x. But, in order to introduce randomization, I changed the variable x to x-y', where y' is the standard normal variable. I wish to obtain the plot of z as a kind of variable probability distribution over the grid of x and y with the variation of a (so kind of series of probability distributions overlapping each other). How do I do this? Any hints? Thanks beforehand.

What ou aim to do is quite unclear. Could you try to explain it algebrically ?

Each plot3d command produces a graphics object.

Such objects can be added together in Sage.

The following might give the desired output.

import numpy as np

G = Graphics()
x, y = SR.var('x, y') 
A = np.linspace(-1, 1, 10)
s = (RDF.pi() * 2).sqrt()

for a in A:
    z = a + x - exp(-y^2/2) / s
    G += plot3d(z, (x, -1, 1), (y, -1, 1))
