galpy.util.plot.plot(*args, **kwargs)[source]

Wrapper around matplotlib’s plot function.

  • *args – Inputs to pyplot.plot.

  • xlabel (str, optional) – x-axis label, LaTeX math mode, no $s needed.

  • ylabel (str, optional) – y-axis label, LaTeX math mode, no $s needed.

  • xrange (tuple, optional) – x range to plot over.

  • yrange (tuple, optional) – y range to plot over.

  • overplot (bool, optional) – If True, plot on top of the current figure.

  • gcf (bool, optional) – If True, do not start a new figure.

  • onedhists (bool, optional) – If True, make one-d histograms on the sides.

  • onedhistcolor (str, optional) – Histogram color.

  • onedhistfc (str, optional) – Histogram fill color.

  • onedhistec (str, optional) – Histogram edge color.

  • onedhistxnormed (bool, optional) – If True, normalize the x-axis histogram.

  • onedhistynormed (bool, optional) – If True, normalize the y-axis histogram.

  • onedhistxweights (numpy.ndarray, optional) – Weights for the x-axis histogram.

  • onedhistyweights (numpy.ndarray, optional) – Weights for the y-axis histogram.

  • bins (int, optional) – Number of bins for the one-d histograms.

  • semilogx (bool, optional) – If True, plot the x-axis on a log scale.

  • semilogy (bool, optional) – If True, plot the y-axis on a log scale.

  • loglog (bool, optional) – If True, plot both axes on a log scale.

  • scatter (bool, optional) – If True, use pyplot.scatter instead of pyplot.plot.

  • colorbar (bool, optional) – If True, add a colorbar.

  • crange (tuple, optional) – Range for the colorbar.

  • clabel (str, optional) – Label for the colorbar.

  • **kwargs – All other keyword arguments are passed to pyplot.plot or pyplot.scatter.


Output from pyplot.plot/pyplot.scatter or 3 Axes instances if onedhists=True.
