I am trying to generate a fancy looking figure of a 2D lattice model with a "spin"-dependent on-site potential. The on-site potential is cosine modulated both in the x and y directions.
The code I use is attached. One can see two figures there. The latter is more beautiful but carries less information about my model. However, the former (which is generated by the code) lacks 3D effects to make it as visually appealing as the latter.
Does any of you have some idea how to generate some 3D effects and lighting on the filling of such a ListPointPlot3D graph? Or an idea for another function that can help me improve the present-ability of my figure?
