They are set within the base=
Play around with the factors of the \defFunction macro -- this one
defines the function. This function then gets a UNIQUE name -- in this
case _mobius_ with the variables _u_ and _v_
You can define some other functions in that way with whatever variable
you like: _s_ and _t_, _x_ and _y_ etc. with another name.
Within the macro \psSolid, you declare:
function=mobius, which calls back the defined function with its declared
variables.
base = 0.2 0.25 0 pi then sets the range of the variables
(u[0.2;0.25],v[0;pi])
This is helpful, that you not have to declare what variable names you
chose -- base does the job automatically.
object=surfaceparametree, defines the kind of object that solides-3d
predefined -- a function in 2 variables in that case.
ngrid=.025, sets the GRID of the surface -- sometimes need to be set to
.024 to avoid a division by zero...

This gives 50 % if intensity to the named color

To setup the range of the u and v values.
Hope that helps,
