Show

Show[graphics, options]
shows graphics with the specified options added.
Show[g1, g2, ...]
shows several graphics combined.
  • Show allows any option that can be applied to graphics to be given.
  • Options explicitly specified in Show override those included in the graphics expression.
  • Show[g1, g2, ...] or Show[{g1, g2, ...}]concatenates the graphics primitives in the gi, effectively overlaying the graphics.
  • The lists of non-default options in the gi are concatenated.
  • Show applies the function defined as the setting for DisplayFunction, and returns the result. For ordinary notebook operation, this function is just Identity.
