Image: X-ray of $\sin\!\left(z\right)$ on $z \in \left[-5, 5\right] + \left[-5, 5\right] i$
An X-ray plot illustrates the geometry of a complex analytic function $f\!\left(z\right)$. Thick black curves show where $\operatorname{Im}\!\left(f\!\left(z\right)\right) = 0$ (the function is pure real). Thick red curves show where $\operatorname{Re}\!\left(f\!\left(z\right)\right) = 0$ (the function is pure imaginary). Points where black and red curves intersect are zeros or poles. Magnitude level curves $\left|f\!\left(z\right)\right| = C$ are rendered as thin gray curves, with brighter shades corresponding to larger $C$. Blue lines show branch cuts. The value of the function is continuous with the branch cut on the side indicated with a solid line, and discontinuous on the side indicated with a dashed line. Yellow is used to highlight important regions.
