Notes

There are many settings available in plotting functions. The example below shows the usage of s. alpha and color.

import numpy as np
import matplotlib.pylab as plt

x, y = np.random.normal(0, 1, (2, 1000))
plt.scatter(x, y, s=10, alpha=0.5, color='pink')
x, y = np.random.normal(2, 0.5, (2, 1000))
plt.scatter(x, y, s=10, alpha=0.5, color='purple');

The example below demonstrates some of these settings used in histograms.

x1 = np.random.normal(0, 1, (1000))
x2 = np.random.normal(2, 1, (1000))
plt.hist(x1, alpha=0.5, color="purple", bins=30)
plt.hist(x2, alpha=0.2, color="orange", bins=30);

Again, note the semi-colon at the end here.
