This looks much better: In[2]:= data = {{10^(-6), 72}, {10^(-5), 60}, {10^(-4), 45}, {10^(-3), 31}, {10^(-2), 33}, {10^(-1), 32}}; << "Graphics`Graphics`" LogLinearListPlot[data, Ticks -> {{{10^(-6), "\!\(10\^-6\)"}, {10^(-5), "\!\(10\^-5\)"}, {10^(-4), "\!\(10\^-4\)"}, {10^(-3), "\!\(10\^-3\)"}, {10^(-2), "\!\(10\^-2\)"}, {10^(-1), "\!\(10\^-1\)"}}, Automatic}, PlotRange -> {0, 100}]; Write the superscript expression with "10 Ctrl-6 -6", etc. Tomas Garza Mexico City ----- Original Message ----- From: "Patrick Spicer" <pspicer at fuse.net> To: mathgroup at smc.vnet.net Subject: [mg47386] [mg47336] Scientific Notation in ListPlot Axes > Hi, > > I apologize up front for posting a seemingly FAQ...but I searched the > archives and did not find what I need. > > How can I format the axis of a LogLinearListPlot to display tick > labels as scientific notation without the "1 x " portion?
