# Plot¶

The Plot domain supports plotting of functions defined over a real number system. A real number system is a model for the real numbers and as such may be an approximation. For example floating point numbers and infinite continued fractions. The facilities at this point are limited to 2-dimensional plots or either a single function or a parametric function.

adaptive?() determines whether plotting be done adaptively

plot(f, g, a..b, c..d, e..f) plots the parametric curve x = f(t), y = g(t) as t ranges over the interval [a, b]; x-range of [c, d] and y-range of [e, f] are noted in Plot object.

plot: (DoubleFloat -> DoubleFloat, Segment DoubleFloat) -> %

plot(f, a..b) plots the function f(x) on the interval [a, b].

plot: (DoubleFloat -> DoubleFloat, Segment DoubleFloat, Segment DoubleFloat) -> %

plot: (List(DoubleFloat -> DoubleFloat), Segment DoubleFloat) -> %

plot([f1, ..., fm], a..b) plots the functions y = f1(x), …, y = fm(x) on the interval a..b.

plot: (List(DoubleFloat -> DoubleFloat), Segment DoubleFloat, Segment DoubleFloat) -> %

plot([f1, ..., fm], a..b, c..d) plots the functions y = f1(x), …, y = fm(x) on the interval a..b; y-range of [c, d] is noted in Plot object.

plotPolar: (DoubleFloat -> DoubleFloat) -> %

plotPolar(f) plots the polar curve r = f(theta) as theta ranges over the interval [0, 2*\%pi]; this is the same as the parametric curve x = f(t) * cos(t), y = f(t) * sin(t).

plotPolar: (DoubleFloat -> DoubleFloat, Segment DoubleFloat) -> %

plotPolar(f, a..b) plots the polar curve r = f(theta) as theta ranges over the interval [a, b]; this is the same as the parametric curve x = f(t) * cos(t), y = f(t) * sin(t).
