This very topic was covered recently:
http://news.povray.org/web.5794faac1a150b855e7df57c0%40news.povray.org

I think A is the amplitude, so just translate the whole curve by using
translate -y*A
to make the peak be at or close to <0, 0, 0>

then you can use an other transformations to move it anywhere you wish.
