FilledSmallSquare PlotRange is an option for graphics functions that specifies what points to include in a plot.

FilledSmallSquare PlotRange can be used for both two- and three-dimensional graphics.

FilledSmallSquare The following settings can be used:

FilledSmallSquare When no explicit limits are given for a particular coordinate, a setting of Automatic is assumed.

FilledSmallSquare With the Automatic setting, the distribution of coordinate values is found, and any points sufficiently far out in the distribution are dropped. Such points are often produced as a result of singularities in functions being plotted.

FilledSmallSquare A setting of the form min, Automatic specifies a particular minimum value for a coordinate, and a maximum value to be determined automatically.

FilledSmallSquare AbsoluteOptions gives the explicit form of PlotRange specifications when Automatic settings are given.

FilledSmallSquare See Section 1.9.2 and Section 1.9.2.

FilledSmallSquare See also: PlotRegion, AspectRatio, AbsoluteOptions.
