Here I fill the space below the function z = x^2+y^2 to get a solid object. I did it by: Plotting the curves at the…

The sine function is a well known periodic function. Choose an argument factor, which doesn’t divide the period well, and you can see a complicated…

The sine function is a well known periodic function. Choose an argument factor, which doesn’t divide the period well, and add another sine function with…

Here we can see how parts of a curve can be emphasized. A color shading partitions the plane. The code is from a question by…

For drawing a spiral cone, we need to find an appropriate parametrization. This code was written by Gonzalo Medina on TeX.SE. \documentclass[border=5pt]{standalone} \usepackage{pgfplots} \pgfplotsset{width=7cm,compat=1.8} \usetikzlibrary{decorations.markings}…

This is one I like from my thesis. It illustrates the predicted boundaries for boundary layer transition mechanisms on a cylindrical afterbody at incidence: free…

Here, the trick is to use stack plots=y together with closedcycle to create the error bands. We define a new command, \addplotwitherrorbands[<optional styles>]{<function>}{<positive error>} {<negative…

We would like to plot several two-dimensional functions in a three-dimensional graph. Tabulated data can be plotted in different planes quite easily by using addplot3…
