Coloring surfaces in Mathematica

  1. Dec 29, 2008 #1
    Hi, all,

    I have a question about coloring a 3D parametric surface in Mathematica.


    Take as given a surface M in R^3 and a parameterization of that surface p:[a,b] x [c,d] -> R^3. Let f:M -> R be a function defined on M.


    How can I plot this surface so that points p with f(p) >= 0 are colored white and points p with f(p) < 0 are colored gray?


    I'm using ParametricPlot3D and trying to work with the ColorFunction -> Function construct, but can't quite get it right.

    Thanks in advance!
