Plotting the exponential function¶

This example demonstrates how to import a local module and how images are stacked when two plots are created in one code block. The variable N from the example ‘Local module’ (file local_module.py) is imported in the code below. Further, note that when there is only one code block in an example, the output appears before the code block.

  • Negative exponential function

import numpy as np
import matplotlib.pyplot as plt

# You can use modules local to the example being run, here we import
# N from local_module
from local_module import N  # = 100


def main():
    x = np.linspace(-1, 2, N)
    y = np.exp(x)

    plt.figure()
    plt.plot(x, y)
    plt.xlabel('$x$')
    plt.ylabel('$\exp(x)$')
    plt.title('Exponential function')

    plt.figure()
    plt.plot(x, -np.exp(-x))
    plt.xlabel('$x$')
    plt.ylabel('$-\exp(-x)$')
    plt.title('Negative exponential\nfunction')
    # To avoid matplotlib text output
    plt.show()
