Thanks, I didn't realize that Mathematica allowed 2 parameters with ParameterPlot in 2D. This is by far the fastest method I've tried so far. Now to figure out how to use MeshShading to get exactly the hue, saturations, and values. There's a picture of the sheared grid at http://home.comcast.net/~cy56/ShearedGrid.png. Fortunately, column vectors work when multiplied by a matrix (although not alone), so we have a familiar linear algebra expression for the algebra. ParametricPlot[{{1, 0.25}, {0, 1}} . {{u},{v}}, {v, 0, 1}, {u, 0, 1}, Mesh -> {10, 10}, MeshShading -> Table[Hue[h,s,1], {h,Range[1, 0.1, -(0.9/10)]}, {s,Range[0.1, 1, 0.9/10]} ] ] On 2/20/11 5:28 AM, in article ijqqbj$ap3$1 at smc.vnet.net, "Heike Gramberg" <heike.gramberg at gmail.com> wrote: > I'm not entirely sure how you want to use your function, but if you're > interested in drawing the image of a rectangular grid after a 2D > transformation you could do something like this: > > mesh[fx_, fy_, opts___] := > ParametricPlot[{fx[x, y], fy[x, y]}, {x, 0, 1}, {y, 0, 1}, > Mesh -> 9, > MeshShading -> > Table[Hue[xi, (1 - yi), 1], {yi, Range[0, 1, 1/10]}, {xi, > Range[0, 1, 1/10]}], opts] > > This would draw the image of the square 0<x,y<1 with a 10x10 coloured grid > under the mapping {x,y}->{fx[x,y],fy[x,y]}. > > Heike.
