# Function visualization

We want to visualize two functions. The first function is given by means of a data table. The second function is given by means of a math expression. We would like to place the two results side-by-side, and we would like to have “proper” alignment.

The code is from the PGFPlots 1.10 manual: “3.2 Solving a Real Use Case: Function Visualization”.
