draw(self, xMin, xMax, pointNumber)

Draw the function.

getClassName(self)

Accessor to the object’s name.

getId(self)

Accessor to the object’s id.

getImplementation(self, \*args)

Accessor to the underlying implementation.

getName(self)

Accessor to the object’s name.

gradient(self, x)

Compute the gradient at point x.

hessian(self, x)

Compute the hessian at point x.

setName(self, name)

Accessor to the object’s name.

__init__(self, *args)

Initialize self. See help(type(self)) for accurate signature.

draw(self, xMin, xMax, pointNumber)

Draw the function.

Parameters
x_minfloat, optional

The starting value that is used for meshing the x-axis.

x_maxfloat, optional, x_{\max} > x_{\min}

The ending value that is used for meshing the x-axis.

n_pointsint, optional

The number of points that is used for meshing the x-axis.

Examples

>>> import openturns as ot
>>> from openturns.viewer import View
>>> f = ot.UniVariatePolynomial([1.0, 2.0, -3.0, 5.0])
>>> View(f.draw(-10.0, 10.0, 100)).show()
