Plot types - plot functions, MATLAB in Mathematics

Plot types:

Besides plot and bar, there are another plot types like stem plots, histograms, stem plots, area plots and pie charts, and also other functions which customize the graphs.

Some of the other plotting functions are elaborated in this section. The functions area, bar, barh, and stem necessarily display similar data as the plot function, but in various forms. The bar function draws a bar chart, barh draws a horizontal bar chart, the area draws plot as a continuous curve and fills in under the curve which is generated, and stem draws a stem plot.

For illustration, the below script generates a Figure Window which uses a 2 × 2 subplot to elaborate these four plot types by using the similar x and y points as shown in figure.

Note that the third argument in the call to the subplot function is a single index in the matrix generated in the Figure Window; the numbering is row wise (in contrast to the normal column wise unwinding that MATLAB uses for the matrices).
