Calling Sequence

Parameters

Description

Examples

Calling Sequence

plot(f, h, v, options)

Parameters

f(x)

-

acceptable function

h

-

horizontal range

v

-

vertical range (optional)

Description

• 

If either of the range end points of the horizontal range contains +-infinity, an infinity plot is generated.

• 

An infinity plot is obtained by transforming  -infinity .. infinity to  1..1  by a transformation that approximates arctan. This is a nice way of getting the entire picture of f(x) on the display.  Such a graph, although distorted near x = -infinity and infinity, contains a lot of information about the features of f(x).

• 

Because the view is already determined for infinity plots, the view option has no effect.

Examples

plotsinx,x=0..∞

The command to create the plot from the Plotting Guide is

plot1x,x=∞..∞,labels=x,y
