**exp (ik.r)**and the

cylindrical wave as

**1/sqrt(r) *exp(ik.r)**and the

spherical wave as

**1/r*exp(ik.r)**

Have any one tried to plot these waves? How to do it?

**Attempt**: in Matlab assuming k=1

>> x=linspace(-1,1,100);

>> for(ii=1:100)

fp(ii)=exp(i*x(ii));

end

>> [x,fp]=meshgrid(x,fp);

>> mesh(x,real(fp))

gave me plane surface that is inclined in the graph however I still need to create Cylindrical wave and spherical wave. I am confused on how to use " r " for cylindrical and spherical wavefronts.
