Learning Mathematica: Two-Dimensional Mathematica Graphics

Volume 3, Issue 3
Summer 1993
Nancy Blachman

This article describes some of Mathematica's graphics capabilities. It shows how to graph a function in two dimensions, plot several functions on one graph, and change the style of a plot. It also explains how Mathematica determines what to draw and how you can override the decisions it makes. The pictures in this article illustrate the strengths of the software as well as possible sources of confusion. Much of the material is taken from The Mathematica Graphics Guidebook, which I am writing with Cameron Smith (to be published this Fall by Addison-Wesley).
