Displaying the contours of a functionΒΆ

An example showing how to display the contours of a function with matplotlib.

plot contour
import numpy as np
import matplotlib.pyplot as plt
def f(x, y):
return (1 - x / 2 + x**5 + y**3) * np.exp(-(x**2) - y**2)
n = 256
x = np.linspace(-3, 3, n)
y = np.linspace(-3, 3, n)
X, Y = np.meshgrid(x, y)
plt.axes([0.025, 0.025, 0.95, 0.95])
plt.contourf(X, Y, f(X, Y), 8, alpha=0.75, cmap=plt.cm.hot)
C = plt.contour(X, Y, f(X, Y), 8, colors="black", linewidths=0.5)
plt.clabel(C, inline=1, fontsize=10)
plt.xticks([])
plt.yticks([])
plt.show()
