Circle

FilledSmallSquare Circle[x, y, r] is a two-dimensional graphics primitive that represents a circle of radius r centered at the point x, y.

FilledSmallSquare Circle[x, y, , ] yields an ellipse with semi-axes and .

FilledSmallSquare Circle[x, y, r, , ] represents a circular arc.

FilledSmallSquare Angles are measured in radians counterclockwise from the positive direction.

FilledSmallSquare Circle[x, y, , , , ] yields a segment of an ellipse obtained by transforming a circular arc with the specified starting and ending angles.

FilledSmallSquare Scaled[, ] or Scaled[, , , ] can be used in the radius specification. The are in scaled coordinates, and the are in ordinary coordinates.

FilledSmallSquare Offset[, ] can be used to specify radii in printer's points.

FilledSmallSquare The thickness of the circle can be specified using the Thickness primitive.

FilledSmallSquare See Section 2.10.2 and Section 2.10.2.
