Set Plot Coordinate System

 

Description

Examples

Description

• 

The default coordinate system for all two dimensional plotting commands is the cartesian coordinate system.  The coords option allows the user to alter this coordinate system.  The alternate choices are:  bipolar, cardioid, cassinian, elliptic, hyperbolic, invcassinian, invelliptic, logarithmic, logcosh, maxwell, parabolic, polar, rose, and tangent.

• 

See coords for a full description of each of these coordinate systems.

• 

All coordinate systems are also valid for parametrically defined 2-D plots with the same interpretations of the coordinate system transformations.

• 

With most plotting commands, Cartesian axes are displayed by default, regardless of the coordinate system used.  The plots[polarplot] command displays polar axes by default. You can also obtain polar axes by adding the axiscoordinates=polar option along with the coords=polar option.

Examples

plotsinx,x=0..2π,coords=polar

plotsinx,x=0..2π,coords=polar,axiscoordinates=polar

plotsin,0..2π,coords=bipolar

The command to create the plot from the Plotting Guide is

plotlnx,x=0..2π,coords=elliptic,view=4..8,3..1
