Plot

FilledSmallSquare Plot[f, x, xmin, xmax] generates a plot of f as a function of x from xmin to xmax.

FilledSmallSquare Plot[, , ... , x, xmin, xmax] plots several functions .

FilledSmallSquare Plot evaluates its arguments in a non-standard way (see Section A.4.2). You should use Evaluate to evaluate the function to be plotted if this can safely be done before specific numerical values are supplied.

FilledSmallSquare Plot has the same options as Graphics, with the following additions:

FilledSmallSquare Plot uses the default setting Axes -> True.

FilledSmallSquare Plot initially evaluates f at a number of equally spaced sample points specified by PlotPoints. Then it uses an adaptive algorithm to choose additional sample points, attempting to produce a curve in which the bend between successive segments is less than MaxBend. It subdivides a given interval by a factor of at most PlotDivision.

FilledSmallSquare You should realize that with the finite number of sample points used, it is possible for Plot to miss features in your function. To check your results, you should increase the setting for PlotPoints.

FilledSmallSquare Plot returns a Graphics object.
