In-Depth Information

x = linspace(0,2);

y = 1./(1-x);

plt(x,y)

text(1,75,...

' y \rightarrow \pm\infty')

The T
E
X syntax of '
_
' and '
^
' to produce subscripts and superscripts is

also supported:

t1 = linspace(-5,5);

y = cos(t1.^2);

plt(t1,y)

title('cos(t_1^2)')

If the sub- or superscript is more than one character, use curly brackets

to define the scope:

title('cos(t_{i,j}^{2m + 1})')

For degree symbols (e.g. 30
◦
), use
\circ
.(In
E
X you would use
\circ

in a superscript,
$30^\circ$
, but doing that in matlab makes the

degree symbol too high and too small.)

title('Plot for \alpha = 30\circ')

33.2 Symbols in Tick Labels

To put T
E
X symbols in tick mark labels you cannot use the commands of

the
xlabel
family; they currently do not interpret the T
E
X syntax. How-

ever, you can replace the default ticklabels with Text objects that contain
