Some Special Plots

As discussed in "The Structure of Graphics and Sound", Mathematica includes a full graphics programming language. In this language, you can set up many different kinds of plots. A few of the common ones are included in standard Mathematica packages.
LogPlot[f,{x,xmin,xmax}]generate a linear-log plot
LogLinearPlot[f,{x,xmin,xmax}]generate a log-linear plot
LogLogPlot[f,{x,xmin,xmax}]generate a log-log plot
ListLogPlot[list]generate a linear-log plot from a list of data
ListLogLinearPlot[list]generate a log-linear plot
ListLogLogPlot[list]generate a log-log plot from a list of data
PolarPlot[r,{t,tmin,tmax}]generate a polar plot of the radius r as a function of angle t
SphericalPlot3D[r,{theta,min,max},{phi,min,max}]
generate a three-dimensional spherical plot
BarChart[list]plot a list of data as a bar chart
ErrorListPlot[{{x1,y1,dy1},...}]generate a plot with error bars
PieChart[list]plot a list of data as a pie chart

Some special plotting functions. The second group of functions are defined in standard Mathematica packages.

This generates a log-linear plot.
