Poster with TikZ

We know for example informational or scientific posters seen at conferences or at walls in universities or institutes. They mostly have certain characteristics in common:…

Plotting in three dimensions

Functions with two arguments can be visualized in three-dimensional plots. Getting this on paper or into a PDF, is a bit more challenging. We need…

Bar chart

A bar chart can be used for comparing values. Here we create a horizontal bar chart. The pgfplots package provides an easy way. In this…

Distraction-free plotting in three dimensions

We will use pgfplots for a three-dimensional plot of an exponential function. We will apply a style for reduced and shifted axes, to get a…

Plotting in polar coordinates

The standard pgfplots axis environment is used for Cartesian coordinates. However, pgfplots provides also logarithmic axes and polar axes. Functions can also be defined in…

Plotting a function with minimal axes

We plot a sine function with PGFplots, similar to: http://latex-cookbook.net/cookbook/examples/grid-plot/ While a grid and a lot of ticks can be useful to inspect specific values…

Plotting a function with a grid

We will plot a sine function with PGFplots. A default pgfplots axis will be rectangular box that contains the plot. Let’s look at this. In…

Plotting a function

Functions play an important role in mathematics. To visualize them to better understand their properties, for seeing roots and extreme points, we can plot them…
