Bases: sage.plot.primitive.GraphicPrimitive_xydata
Primitive class that initializes the line graphics type.
EXAMPLES:
sage: from sage.plot.line import Line
sage: Line([1,2,7], [1,5,-1], {})
Line defined by 3 points
Plots a 2D line in 3D, with default height zero.
EXAMPLES:
sage: E = EllipticCurve('37a').plot(thickness=5).plot3d()
sage: F = EllipticCurve('37a').plot(thickness=5).plot3d(z=2)
sage: E + F # long time (5s on sage.math, 2012)
Graphics3d Object
Returns either a 2-dimensional or 3-dimensional line depending on value of points.
INPUT:
For information regarding additional arguments, see either line2d? or line3d?.
EXAMPLES:
sage: line([(0,0), (1,1)])
Graphics object consisting of 1 graphics primitive
sage: line([(0,0,1), (1,1,1)])
Graphics3d Object
Create the line through the given list of points.
INPUT:
Type line2d.options for a dictionary of the default options for lines. You can change this to change the defaults for all future lines. Use line2d.reset() to reset to the default options.
INPUT:
Any MATPLOTLIB line option may also be passed in. E.g.,
The linestyle can also be prefixed with a drawing style (e.g., "steps--")
markersize – the size of the marker in points
markeredgecolor – the color of the marker edge
markerfacecolor – the color of the marker face
markeredgewidth – the size of the marker edge in points
EXAMPLES:
A line with no points or one point:
sage: line([]) #returns an empty plot
Graphics object consisting of 0 graphics primitives
sage: import numpy; line(numpy.array([]))
Graphics object consisting of 0 graphics primitives
sage: line([(1,1)])
Graphics object consisting of 1 graphics primitive
A line with numpy arrays:
sage: line(numpy.array([[1,2], [3,4]]))
Graphics object consisting of 1 graphics primitive
A line with a legend:
sage: line([(0,0),(1,1)], legend_label='line')
Graphics object consisting of 1 graphics primitive
Lines with different colors in the legend text:
sage: p1 = line([(0,0),(1,1)], legend_label='line')
sage: p2 = line([(1,1),(2,4)], legend_label='squared', legend_color='red')
sage: p1 + p2
Graphics object consisting of 2 graphics primitives
Extra options will get passed on to show(), as long as they are valid:
sage: line([(0,1), (3,4)], figsize=[10, 2])
Graphics object consisting of 1 graphics primitive
sage: line([(0,1), (3,4)]).show(figsize=[10, 2]) # These are equivalent
We can also use a logarithmic scale if the data will support it:
sage: line([(1,2),(2,4),(3,4),(4,8),(4.5,32)],scale='loglog',base=2)
