I am sorry that I was not clear enough about the nature of my problem,
which I will try to illustrate by the following example:
If 'Cos' is replaced by 'Cosh' in the command
an empty plot box appears.
It seems to me that it is problematic to make 3D contour plots
involving exponential functions, and I hope somebody can suggest
a remedy for this.
