A Normalization of Radial Distribution Function

  1. Sep 27, 2018 #1

    Hello all,
    I have a Radial Distribution Function in which the y-axis ie., g(r) value goes up to 40. But the other atoms values for g(r) are, say within 5. So when i plot these two it is difficult to see the smaller graph.
    So how do i normalize these value..??
    I have attached an image.

    Any python program if possible would be highly appreciated.

    Thank you.

    The usual normalization is that g(r) ---> 1 for large r. For comparison with smaller peaks, you can truncate the y-axis.

    I want the y-axis scale to be reduced and hence i can have a better visualization w.r.t all the graphs.
    Any suggestions on how to get this??
