PlotLabel

PlotLabel
is an option for graphics functions that specifies an overall label for a plot.
  • Any expression can be used as a label. It will be given by default in TraditionalForm. Arbitrary strings of text can be given as . »
Use any Mathematica notation for labels:
Use Style and other typesetting functions to modify how the label appears:
Overall style of all the label-like elements can be specified by LabelStyle:
Use any Mathematica notation for labels:
In[1]:=
Click for copyable input
Out[1]=
In[2]:=
Click for copyable input
Out[2]=
 
Use Style and other typesetting functions to modify how the label appears:
In[1]:=

Out[1]=
 
Overall style of all the label-like elements can be specified by LabelStyle:
In[1]:=

Out[1]=
Labels use TraditionalForm by default:
Use StandardForm instead:
An individually styled label can be used with LabelStyle, and has higher priority:
Automatically label different cases:
The overall output format can be specified using FormatType:
When different format types are combined the result is likely to be unpredictable:
This is equivalent to:
Interactively choose a function to plot:
