Original file(SVG file, nominally 908 × 623 pixels, file size: 4 KB)


English: Graph of the normalized sinc function sin(πx)/(πx).

Mathworld's version.

The original was generated by gnuplot, while the more recent one was generated with matplotlib.

File size was reduced by efficient coding of the axis drawing and labeling and by a reworking of the graph's path. The resulting path is smoother even though fewer points are used in its determination.

This 1081 was created with a text editor.
Previous version had been created with Matplotlib (37 888 bytes)     now 10.81% of previous size

Omegatron's instructions:
See Wikipedia graph-making tips.

Gnuplot val.svg
This plot was created with Gnuplot.
Then I opened the resulting SVG file in Inkscape, changed the line colors, brought the plot lines to the top, made all the lines 3 px wide, made the grid lines 2px wide and 50% transparency.
