bn at cacs.usl.edu (bn) [mg4852] Different Plots in the Same Window? asks >Is it possible to display the plots of two different functions >in the same window? >For egs. >I would like to see how the Contour plots of two or three functions >interset. The general pattern is plt1 = ...; plt2 = ...; .. .. Show[plt1, plt2, ....] However with ContourPlot a little more is required: With the following you will find that the polygons that give the contour shading in cp2 cover cp1, which is not seen at all. cp1 =ContourPlot[x^2 -y^2, {x,-1,1},{y,-1,1}] cp2 = ContourPlot[x^2 +y^2, {x,-1,1},{y,-1,1}] Show[cp1,cp2] One way round this is to turn of the contour shading in the second plot (you can of course turn it off in the firs as well). cp1 =ContourPlot[x^2 -y^2, {x,-1,1},{y,-1,1}] cp2 = ContourPlot[x^2 +y^2, {x,-1,1},{y,-1,1}, ContourShading -> False] Show[cp1,cp2] Allan Hayes hay at haystack.demon.co.uk ==== [MESSAGE SEPARATOR] ====
