Temporal function inspired from http://holoviews.org/user_guide/Live_Data.html

alpha = 2
xvals  = np.linspace(-4, 4,101)
yvals  = np.linspace(-4, 4,101)
xs, ys = np.meshgrid(xvals, yvals)

#temporal function to create data on a plane
def time_function(time):
    return np.sin(((ys/alpha)**alpha+time)*xs)

# 3d plane to support the data
mesh_ref = pv.ImageData(
    dimensions=(xvals.size, yvals.size, 1), #dims
    spacing=(xvals[1]-xvals[0],yvals[1]-yvals[0],1), #spacing
    origin=(xvals.min(),yvals.min(),0) #origin
mesh_ref.point_data['values'] = time_function(0).flatten(order='F')  #add data for time=0
pl_ref = pv.Plotter()
pl_ref.add_mesh(mesh_ref, cmap='rainbow')

pn.pane.VTK(pl_ref.ren_win, min_height=600)

We will demonstrate how to warp the surface and plot a temporal animation

mesh_warped = mesh_ref.warp_by_scalar() # warp the mesh using data at time=0
#create the pyvista plotter
pl = pv.Plotter()
pl.add_mesh(mesh_warped, cmap='rainbow')

#initialize panel and widgets
