VectorPoints

VectorPoints
is an option to VectorPlot, ListVectorPlot, and related functions that determines how many field vectors to draw.

DetailsDetails

  • The following settings can be given for VectorPoints:
  • Nonedraw no field vectors
    ndraw a regular n×n grid of field vectors
    {m,n}draw a regular m×n grid of field vectors
    Coarseautomatically chosen coarse set of field vectors
    Fineautomatically chosen fine set of field vectors
    {p1,p2,}draw field vectors at the points , ,
    {{p1,g1},}draw the field vector at using graphics directive
