colour.plotting.plot_single_function(function: Callable, samples: Optional[ArrayLike] = None, log_x: Optional[Integer] = None, log_y: Optional[Integer] = None, plot_kwargs: Optional[Union[Dict, List[Dict]]] = None, **kwargs: Any) Tuple[plt.Figure, plt.Axes][source]

Plot given function.

  • function (Callable) – Function to plot.

  • samples (Optional[ArrayLike]) – Samples to evaluate the functions with.

  • log_x (Optional[Integer]) – Log base to use for the x axis scale, if None, the x axis scale will be linear.

  • log_y (Optional[Integer]) – Log base to use for the y axis scale, if None, the y axis scale will be linear.

  • plot_kwargs (Optional[Union[Dict, List[Dict]]]) – Keyword arguments for the matplotlib.pyplot.plot() definition, used to control the style of the plotted function.

  • kwargs (Any) – {colour.plotting.artist(), colour.plotting.plot_multi_functions(), colour.plotting.render()}, See the documentation of the previously listed definitions.


Current figure and axes.
