Hi, today i've got stuck with a problem in gnuplot 4.4.2. On freenode i was suggested to post it here as it seem to be a bug. Here is my problem, some data and a function: http://www.plotshare.com/index.ws/plot/239541263 In the first example using autoscale the function ends on the sheet without reaching the boarder, when using x/yrange, it shows the right behaviour. As i want to use autoscale (with set xrange [0:*]) and as output eps, i tried to find a workaround. Using replot f(x) works but i ran in another problem, as epstopdf don't convert the resulting eps right, the pdf is missing the function (this might be a epstopdf problem). Thank you, Jan

I suppose that is a solution. Or could remove the limit and see how gnuplot behaves when memory is used up. That solution doesn't address the inefficient method of integration, but seeing as the feature probably isn't used often the solution might work well enough. Dan

I could :D Nice! > Let me know if you have any ideas to make it better I'd suggest using the recursion not to cover the interval _linearly_, but using the recursion to _bisect_ the interval, like this: intf(a,x,n) = (n==0) ? f((a+x)/2)*(xa) : ( intf(a,(a+x)/2,n1) + intf((a+x)/2,x,n1) ) The last parameter n is the number of recursions, and which equals the 2log of the number of points in which to cut the interval. This approach should practically avoid stack overflows, since much less recursion depth is needed for the same accuracy. Regards, PieterTjerk

I gave those formulas a try. They behave better than 3snoW's formulas in the example I used, because of the parameter delta (i.e., h) rather than the fixed number of intervals of 3snoW and because of its use of Simpson's rule. The bivariat.dem formula still has the problem of recursion/stack depth, in this case: recursion depth limit exceeded An internal integration function is probably the only solution to that. The tricky part would be interpreting the function name, i.e., f(x) = cos(x) h = 0.2 M = 1 plot intgrt(f(x),h,M) where f(x) is the function, h is the (initial) stepsize, M is the integration method. The first argument, in this case "f(x)", would need special treatment in the parser different from other functions. Dan

That way, if f(a) was not 0, the integral would have a discontinuity every time x was a multiple of h, so, as a workaround to this problem, I set it to integrate f(x)f(a), and compensated adding f(a)*(xa). But since I switched to dividing into 90 equal parts, this is no longer a problem. I didn't make the integration method more sophisticated because of the 'stack overflow' issue. Adaptive integral techniques would most likely consume 'stacks' at a much higher rate, and in the end you would have a worse integration because of the lack of resolution. I'm thinking of maybe upgrading this to the trapezoidal integration or even a superior order technique, but for now I think this works fine for any 'well behaved' function. Lastly, the generalized function that includes N as a parameter is a good idea, but I'll call it Nintf instead of intf, because that way I can have both functions.

Of course, this is straightforward rectangular approximation to integration. It will have problems with functions that change quickly near discontinuities and so on so won't have the precision of, say, adaptive integral techniques. Nonetheless, it works (sort of, see note at end), assuming the initial condition is that the integral passes through zero at a. Let's see if we can simplify your formulas slightly for efficiency. Starting with intfAux1(a,x,h)=(x>a?(f(x)f(a))*h+intfAux1(a,xh,h):0); intfAux2(a,x,h)=(x<a?(f(x)f(a))*h+intfAux2(a,x+h,h):0); intf(a,x)=x>a?intfAux1(a,xabs(xa)/90./2,abs(xa)/90.)+f(a)*(xa):intfAux2(a,x+abs(xa)/90./2,abs(xa)/90.)+f(a)*(xa); Note that the abs() function call is extraneous because we know that If x>a, then abs(xa) = xa If x<=a, then abs(xa) = ax Therefore, substituting the above intf(a,x)=x>a?intfAux1(a,x(xa)/90./2,(xa)/90.)+f(a)*(xa):intfAux2(a,x+(ax)/90./2,(ax)/90.)+f(a)*(xa); It's possible to factor out the h from the auxiliary formulas and simply multiply it with the auxiliary formula, knowing that h=(xa)/90 in the one case and h=(ax)/90 in the other case: intfAux1(a,x,h)=(x>a?(f(x)f(a))+intfAux1(a,xh,h):0); intfAux2(a,x,h)=(x<a?(f(x)f(a))+intfAux2(a,x+h,h):0); intf(a,x)=x>a?intfAux1(a,x(xa)/90./2,(xa)/90.)*(xa)/90.+f(a)*(xa):intfAux2(a,x+(ax)/90./2,(ax)/90.)*(ax)/90.+f(a)*(xa); Swap the order of x and a in the second formula: intf(a,x)=x>a?intfAux1(a,x(xa)/90./2,(xa)/90.)*(xa)/90.+f(a)*(xa):intfAux2(a,x+(ax)/90./2,(ax)/90.)*(xa)/90.+f(a)*(xa); Note that f(a) is subtracted 90 times, so that can be removed from the auxiliary formulas and lumped in the main formula: intfAux1(a,x,h)=(x>a?f(x)+intfAux1(a,xh,h):0); intfAux2(a,x,h)=(x<a?f(x)+intfAux2(a,x+h,h):0); intf(a,x)=x>a?intfAux1(a,x(xa)/90./2,(xa)/90.)*(xa)/90.90.*f(a)*(xa)/90.+f(a)*(xa):intfAux2(a,x+(ax)/90./2,(ax)/90.)*(xa)/90.90.*f(a)*(xa)/90.+f(a)*(xa); at which point a couple terms cancel. So we have intfAux1(a,x,h)=(x>a?f(x)+intfAux1(a,xh,h):0); intfAux2(a,x,h)=(x<a?f(x)+intfAux2(a,x+h,h):0); intf(a,x)=x>a?intfAux1(a,x(xa)/90./2,(xa)/90.)*(xa)/90.:intfAux2(a,x+(ax)/90./2,(ax)/90.)*(xa)/90.; Seems to work the same. It's not drastically shorter, but the arithmetic operations are reduced. The thing one has to be aware of is that as x gets further and further away from a, the resolution effectively decreases because element h=(xa)/90 becomes larger. This is a problem for functions that appear to be high frequency. For example, try your cosine example, but with set sample 1000 set xrange [200:200] Notice how accuracy is lost moving outward. So you might want to experiment with making h another parameter in the function. Generalizing, intf(a,x,N)=x>a?intfAux1(a,x(xa)/N/2,(xa)/N)*(xa)/N:intfAux2(a,x+(ax)/N/2,(ax)/N)*(xa)/N; I can't push N high enough to get good resolution before a stack overflow occurs. An internal integration feature is probably the only good way to address this sort of thing. Dan

Hello, I'm not sure if this qualifies as "Dev", If it doesn't I'm sorry. I've searched the web for ways to integrate in gnuplot and only found people saying it is not possible. Unsatisfied, I decided to see if i could make one myself. I could :D This was the result: intfAux1(a,x,h)=(x>a?(f(x)f(a))*h+intfAux1(a,xh,h):0); intfAux2(a,x,h)=(x<a?(f(x)f(a))*h+intfAux2(a,x+h,h):0); intf(a,x)=x>a?intfAux1(a,xabs(xa)/90./2,abs(xa)/90.)+f(a)*(xa):intfAux2(a,x+abs(xa)/90./2,abs(xa)/90.)+f(a)*(xa); Basically, intfAux 1 and 2 are just functions for this thing to work, and intf(a,b) integrates f(x) from a to b. You can just type this in every time you want to integrate f(x), or you can download the gnuplot.ini that i made with this function and put it into your binary folder: http://old.nabble.com/file/p31856137/gnuplot.ini gnuplot.ini Here is also a demonstration of using this: http://old.nabble.com/file/p31856137/Integrate%2B.png There are two problems with this function (that I know of): It will most likely not work with self recursive functions because this function itself is self recursive, and gnuplot has a "stack overflow" limit. This makes it impossible to double integrate using this function. I made it so it was not at the limit, it is almost there, so, for example having a function g(x)=h(intf(0,x)) should not be a problem. By the way, if anyone knows of a way to set the stack overflow limit higher, I'd appreciate posting it here. The other problem is that it will integrate specifically f(x), so if you want to integrate another function, g(x) for example, you would have to create an intg(a,b). To make this task easier, I made it so that if you replace in those 3 lines of code all the f's with the name of your function, g for example (again), you would have your intg made. This way you can just open notepad, use the "replace" command and copy the result to gnuplot. Let me know if you have any ideas to make it better or if you find any bug using it! I hope this was helpful! 3snoW  View this message in context: http://old.nabble.com/IntegrationingnuplotISpossible%21tp31856137p31856137.html Sent from the Gnuplot  Dev mailing list archive at Nabble.com.

The fact that you are having to do contortions to fit this into the reference citation format for the publications suggests you are misusing it. That may not go down well with the publisher. While it is nice to recognise the software in a paper using it , it is after all only a plotting tool and there is no reason to cite it as a reference since it should not affect the results in any way. The only exception I can think of is if your are using it to do linear regression or something in which case you should probably understand how it does that and comment on what methods *you* have adopted to fit straight lines , functions, whatever, in choosing to do that with a particular tool that automates the process. To recognise gnuplot and help the reader reproduce your work it would be sufficient to name gnuplot as an open source plotting tool. Anyone capable of using it should be able to find without further help. Mentioning gnuplot as the tool used to produce any graphics seems like a good idea. I doubt citing it as a reference is appropriate. best regards.

But what is it that one is citing, exactly? The source is not (so far as I know) available on gnuplot.info, So if the idea is to cite the location of the program source, then *·info may not be the correct URL. If the idea is to cite the manual, say, then that's another issue. Perhaps we should register the manual with a repository that would issue a permanent DOI. arXiv.org? Ethan

I have always felt the gnuplot.info name should be canonical. It points to sf for v4 and vt for v6 and is much more portable.
