  • Disk[ x , y , r ] is a two-dimensional graphics primitive that represents a filled disk of radius r centered at the point x, y.
  • Disk[ x , y , , ] yields an elliptical disk with semi-axes and .
  • Disk[ x , y , r , , ] represents a segment of a disk.
  • Angles are measured in radians counterclockwise from the positive direction.
  • Disk[ x , y , , , , ] yields an elliptical disk segment obtained by transforming a circular disk segment with the specified starting and ending angles.
  • Scaled and Offset can be used in the radius specification (see notes for Circle).
  • See the Mathematica book: Section 2.9.2Section 2.9.2.
  • See also: Circle, Polygon.
