plots[matrixplot] - 3-D plot with z values determined by a matrix

Calling Sequence

matrixplot(A, options)

Parameters

A

-

Matrix

options

-

see plot3d[option]

Description

• 

The matrixplot function defines a three-dimensional graph where the x and y coordinates represent the row and column indices of A, respectively. The z values are the corresponding entries of A.

• 

The remaining arguments are options specified as equations of the form option = value.  For example:

  

heights=histogram

  

The plot is drawn in the form of a three-dimensional histogram.

  

gap=r

  

The value of r is a real number between 0 and 1.

  

color=F

  

The color of the plot is given by F,  where F is a color specification as described in the plot/color help page. F can also be a two-argument procedure returning a single real value to be interpreted as a hue rather than RGB value.

  

Other options include most of those found with plot3d. These include axes, view, title, labels, style, projection, and orientation.  See plot3d/option.

• 

The result of a call to matrixplot is a PLOT3D structure which can be rendered by the plotting device. The user may assign a PLOT3D value to a variable, save it in a file, then read it back in for redisplay.  See plot3d[structure] for more information.
