Plotting Functions with DiscontinuitiesThis Tips and Techniques illustrates how to plot functions that have discontinuities. The plot commands in Maple create curves by sampling functions over a given range. With the default plotting behavior, when the function is sampled at or near a discontinuity, the plot may be distorted. This document explores the different types of discontinuities you may encounter in 2D plots, and provides techniques for producing accurate plots in each case. It concludes with a brief discussion of 3D plots with discontinuities.
