Here you can sdee Tufte style axes in 3D. The axis affect is achieved by shifting axes, ticks and labels. The command \pgfplotspointouternormalvectorofticklabelaxis{x} is a…

The Mandelbrot consists of points whose boundary is a two-dimensional fractal shape. It is named after the mathematician Benoit Mandelbrot. It’s computed using a lot…

Here we show how contour plots and 3D surface plots can be combined. Pgfplots can compute the z contours by means of gnuplot and its…

We will combine surface and contour plots. We would like the contour lines drawn on the surface to be hidden by the surface in the…

We would like to draw a bivariate normal distribution and show where the means from the two variables meet in the space. There are a…
