Mayavi image of the fortnight

It’s been two weeks since I posted a ‘Mayavi image of the week’. Prabhu has made a really cool example of integrating trajectories in a 3D vector field, using, of course, the Lorenz equation for the 3D field. With nice colors, it makes a new fantastic image:

The green surface represented is an isosurface of the z component of the vector field: on this surface, the z-component changes sign. This can be seen from the trajectories, as they start going up once they pass the surface. The script generating this image is checked in as an example:
