Plots over Z in mathematica and maple

    im sorta new to using maple and mathematica for number theoretical functions, is there any way I can plot the values of an integer defined function in either of these programs? thanks

    There are probably numerous ways to do this in Mathematica (not familiar with Maple). The simplest I can think of right now is: make a table of the values you want and use ListPlot to display them.

    For example

    F[n_]:=n!
    ListPlot[F/@Range[1,5]]

    The first line defines your function (I suppose you already have that). In the second line, Range creates a list {1, 2, 3, 4, 5} and then maps each element to the function. The result is a list {F[1], F[2], ..., F[5]} which is then sent to ListPlot for display.

    Hope that helps :)
