This is both a question about the function used to plot AND how to plot the function (I'm interested in keeping the contour/level lines the same):(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

This looks like a simple f(x,y) = 1/(xy) function. But how would I get Maple/Matlab to plot the contours as shown?
