Mathematica Axes scaling

  1. Feb 3, 2012 #1

    Am plotting a graph and need to scale the axes so that i can take my range of 'x'-axis values from -1 to infinity.

    I shall provide script, but i am using the ParametricPlot command.

    ParametricPlot[tab2, {up, -1 + 10^-7, 10},
    AxesLabel -> {"\[Rho]", "u'"}, PlotRange -> {{-1, 2}, {-1, 0}},
    AspectRatio -> 1]

    Where rho is my x-axis.

    I wish to scale the axis such that [tex] \Rho -> \Rho/(2 + \Rho) [\tex]

    I am aware there is a definition error in the script.

    Thanks in advanced,

    Can you perhaps more simply explain what you really want to do?

    Is your question really that you only want to scale the axes?

    Or is your question really that you are trying to ParametricPlot a table of function of list of function of symbol of I don't know?

    If all you want to do is nonlinear scale the axes from 0 to infinity onto 0 to 1 then choose a very very simple function to start with and we can try to get the scaling correct.

    If instead you are trying to Plot lists then we must start with very different questions.
