AxesLabel
is an option for graphics functions that specifies labels for axes.

DetailsDetails

  • The following settings can be used:
  • Noneno labels
    labellabel for y in 2D or z in 3D
    {lblx,lbly}labels for x and y
    {lblx,lbly,lblz}labels for x, y, and z
    Automaticlabels based on variables specified to Plot etc.
  • By default, axes labels in two-dimensional graphics are placed at the ends of the axes. In three-dimensional graphics, they are aligned with the middles of the axes.
