# 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.
 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 from a list of data ListLogLogPlot[list] generate a log-log plot from a list of data DateListPlot[list] generate a plot from a list of data with date coordinates DateListLogPlot[list] generate a linear-log plot from a list of data with date coordinates 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 RevolutionPlot3D[f,{t,tmin,tmax}] generate a three-dimensional surface of revolution BarChart[list] plot a list of data as a bar chart PieChart[list] plot a list of data as a pie chart

Some special plotting functions.

Here is an exponential function.
This generates linear-log and log-linear plots of the function.
 Out[2]=
This gathers some financial time series data.
This plots the financial data on linear and logarithmic scales.
 Out[4]=
This uses RevolutionPlot3D to revolve a curve around the and axes.
 Out[5]=
Here is a list of the first 10 primes.
 Out[6]=
Here is a bar chart of the primes.
 Out[7]=
This gives a pie chart.
 Out[8]=
Some of the plotting functions available are defined in the Standard Extra Packages included with Mathematica.
 ErrorListPlot[{{x1,y1,dy1},...}] generate a plot with error bars BoxWhiskerPlot[list] generate a box-and-whisker plot of data ParetoPlot[list] generate a Pareto plot of data PairwiseScatterPlot[data] plot pairs of coordinates for multivariate data

Some of the plotting functions in the Mathematica standard extra packages.

This plots a dataset with its associated errors.
 Out[10]=
This generates a box-and-whisker plot for samples from a normal distribution.
 Out[12]=
Here is a random dataset consisting of the letters a through f.
This creates a Pareto plot of the dataset.
 Out[14]=
PairwiseScatterPlot can be used to plot pairs of columns from trivariate data.
 Out[15]=
