generates a plot that gives a visual representation of the values of elements in a matrix.
- MatrixPlot[m] by default arranges successive rows of m down the page and successive columns across, just as a matrix would normally be formatted.
- MatrixPlot by default displays zero values as white, with negative values tending to be bluish and positive values reddish.
- MatrixPlot has the same options as ArrayPlot, with the following changes:
ClippingStyle Automatic how to show clipped values Frame True whether to draw a frame around the plot FrameTicks All what ticks to include on the frame MaxPlotPoints Automatic the maximum number of points to include
- PlotRange->r specifies that only those aij between -r and +r should be shown.
- With the default setting ColorFunctionScaling->True, scaling is done based on a mixture of relative value and ranking for each matrix element. The final scaled value always lies between 0 and 1, with scaled value 0.5 corresponding to matrix element value 0.
- With the default setting MaxPlotPoints->Automatic, sufficiently large or sparse matrices are downsampled so that their structure is visible in the plot generated by MatrixPlot.
- MatrixPlot works with SparseArray objects.
