Re: How to plot field lines of conformal mapping


Jos,

ParametricPlot[
  Evaluate[
{Re[f], Im[f]} /. List /@ Thread[z -> u + Range[-Pi/2, Pi/2, Pi/15] I],
{u, -3,  3},
PlotPoints -> 700]

This should work for you, right away!
Sorry, I did not provide any explanation or exactly reproduce your
original
lines.
