No, it's not a bug at all. Use the option AxesOrigin so that it is consistent with the region to be plotted. (BTW, this doesn't seem to alleviate the ugliness of the plot). E.g. Plot[Abs[Zeta[1/2 + I*t]/t^(1/4)], {t, 35000, 50000}, AxesOrigin -> {35000, 0}, PlotRange -> Full] -Tomas > From: mathgroup at stein.org > Subject: Plot obliterates its y-axis !? > To: mathgroup at smc.vnet.net > Date: Fri, 15 Feb 2013 01:59:29 -0500 > > > Yesterday, Tim Trudgian posted a query about finding a maximum > of a particular function. > He mentioned two plots: > > Plot[Abs[Zeta[1/2 + I*t]/t^(1/4)], {t, 3, 10^5}, PlotRange -> Full] > Plot[Abs[Zeta[1/2 + I*t]/t^(1/4)], {t, 3, 10^6}, PlotRange -> Full] > > This led me to try this: > > Plot[Abs[Zeta[1/2 + I*t]/t^(1/4)], {t, 35000, 50000}, PlotRange -> Full] > > which (unlike the first two) seems to exhibit a bug in v9.0.1: > The area of the graph overwrites the area of the y-axis (tick marks and > labels). > Furthermore, > > Plot[Abs[Zeta[1/2 + I*t]/t^(1/4)], {t, 35000, 45000}, PlotRange -> Full] > > yields an even uglier plot (if that can be possible). > What is going on here? >
