# Graphing functions of two complex variables.

Hello,

I have come across this problem in my studies where I need to try to come up with a graph of a function involving two complex numbers. I have been trying to figure this out for a while now, but I am not sure how to do it. Is there any way to do this type of thing by hand or in Maple?

The type of thing I need to find a graphical representation of is:

$$f(z,w) = \sqrt{(\log |z+w|)^2 + (\log |z-\overline{w}|)^2}$$

This is a bit simpler than the ones I have, but it's similar. If anyone can help, thank you in advance!

You're not going to have much luck as the domain is four dimensional and therefore difficult to visualize.

That's what I was afraid of... Thank you anyways.
