An example of the color map plotting style, with superimposed contours

Pyxplot's colormap plot style produces a color representation of how a function varies across the x-y plane, where different colors represent different values of the function. Here a grayscale color map of x^3/20+y^2 is overlaid with contours of the same function plotted using the contours plot style.
