I have no idea what you are plotting here. Your "fake" does not look
like a _function_ of either axis, and it also doesn't have the symmetry
of the sin/cos pairing of my code. So if it is neither a function in
isolation nor the actual value pair, what is it?
Care to show the program you are generating your plots with?
