PlotLabel

PlotLabel
is an option for graphics functions that specifies an overall label for a plot.
  • PlotLabel->None specifies that no label should be given.
  • PlotLabel->label specifies a label to give.
  • Any expression can be used as a label. It will be given by default in TraditionalForm. Arbitrary strings of text can be given as "text".  »
  • PlotLabel->StandardForm[expr] will give a label in standard Mathematica form.  »
Use any Mathematica notation for labels:
