Example plot - a color map with branch cuts

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 is produced of the argument of the cube of (x+iy), with three branch cuts clearly visible.
