Mathematica defaults to displaying what it considers the interesting aspects of a plot for all plots. You can over ride Mathematica's default behavior by including a PlotRange->All directive in your plot command. Often the default behavior is more informative than what you get by including a PlotRange->All directive. =46or example, compare the results of Plot[Exp[x] + Sin[x], {x, -10, 5}] with Plot[Exp[x] + Sin[x], {x, -10, 5},PlotRange->All] The default shows the oscillation that occurs for negative x while the oscillation is virtually invisible when forcing the plot to include the entire plot range. -- To reply via email subtract one hundred and four
