Hello,

Let
#Sigma# the surface of your function#F# : it's a surface of revolution because#F(x,y) = f(r)# where#r = sqrt(x^2+y^2)# . Precisely,#f(r) = sqrt(r^21) + ln(4r^2)# 
First, plot the curve of
#f : r \mapsto sqrt(r^2 1) + ln(4r^2)# . You get
 Now, turn this curve around
#z# axes in 3Dspace. You get the surface#Sigma#
