Previous chapters demonstrate that MATLAB provides excellent plotting features, which only makes sense considering the value of plots to everyone who uses MATLAB. Without plots, trying to explain the math behind a project would be hard — and describing the consequences of the math would be impossible. In order to truly understand math, most people need a picture, and plotting provides that picture.

There is more — more of everything needed to create just the plot you had in mind! That’s what this chapter is about — creating plots that distinguish themselves with regard to clarity and their ability to communicate abstract concepts in clear terms.
