f is a list of complex numbers (a fourier transform of a time series). All seems OK because I can plot both components: ListPlot[Re[f], PlotRange -> All, PlotJoined -> True] ListPlot[Im[f], PlotRange -> All, PlotJoined -> True] And they look fine. What I really want to do is plot the real vs. imag. components (I should see a loop at each resonance.). The only candidate I have scraped up so far is the following which does indeed make a 2D graph: z = Table[{Re[f[[i]]], Im[f[[i]]]}, {i, 512}]; ListPlot[z, PlotJoined -> True] But, this is clearly not the plot I'm after. Besides the shape not making any sense, the ranges of the two variables aren't close to that seen in the first two plots above. I'm plotting something but it isn't Re[f] vs Im[f]. I have done some looking and trying but I'm getting nowhere. Can someone help me (again)?
