Hi,
first of all you should try to type your commands correctly.
a)
> Plot3D[
> { Abs[x+y I], Hue[ N[(Pi+Arg[x + yI]) /(2 Pi)]]},
> {x,-2,2},{y,-2,2}],
> AxesLabel->{"Re","Im","Abs[z]"},PlotPoints->15
> ];
has a a "]" behind the {y,-2,2} that close the Plot3D[] function.
b) yI is one symbol and n_o_t y*I or y I
The command:
Plot3D[{Abs[x + y I], Hue[N[(Pi + Arg[x + y I])/(2 Pi)]]}, {x, -2, 2},
{y, -2,
2}, AxesLabel -> {"Re", "Im", "Abs[z]"}, PlotPoints -> 15];
works fine.
Regards
Jens
