Hello! Consider the following graph of the function -ln(|x|). Plot[-Log[Abs[x]], {x, -2, 2}, PlotRange -> {Automatic, {-1, 3.5}}, Axes -> False, Frame -> True, PlotPoints -> 100, FrameLabel -> {"x", "y"}] How is it possible to make the y-axis point downwards (I need this because in half-space problems within the solid mechanics the possitive vertical axis is pointed into the half-space)? Thanks in advance. Dimitris
