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.
 Out[1]=
Here is a list of the first 10 primes.
 Out[2]=
Here is a bar chart of the primes.
 Out[4]=
This gives a pie chart.
 Out[6]=
