# Interactive Graph Layout

I really like the new graph visualization functions that were introduced in R2015b. I particularly like the various options for laying out the graph so you can get a nice picture quickly and easily.... read more >>

# Contour and Infinities

In a recent post, I talked about an interesting edge case in the contour function. Today I'd like to talk about another one. This is how contour handles infinities.Let's start with a simple example.... read more >>

# Memory Consumption

Today we're going to look at how MATLAB Graphics uses memory. First we need a way to tell how much memory MATLAB is using. Because I'm using a Windows system, I can use the memory function.... read more >>

# On The Edge

In an earlier post, we discussed how the contour functions interpolate between values. Another important issue is how the contour functions deal with contour levels which are exactly the same as values in the input data. Some users are often surprised by what happens in this case because there are some subtle issues involved. Let's take a detailed look.... read more >>

# Fill Between

Fill BetweenOne question I'm often asked is how to fill the area between two plotted curves. It is possible to do this, but it involves some details which aren't obvious, so let's walk through what's... read more >>

# Homogeneous Coordinates

Homogeneous CoordinatesIn my recent posts about tiling polygons (link1, link2), you might have noticed that I used a rather unusual representation for my coordinates.Instead of having a vector of X... read more >>

# What is a Contour?

What is a Contour?Last year we explored how surfaces perform interpolation. Today we're going to take a look at some closely related functions; the contour family. The family of contour functions... read more >>
