# pdecont

Shorthand command for contour plot

This page describes the legacy workflow. New features might not be compatible with the legacy workflow.

## Syntax

pdecont(p,t,u)
pdecont(p,t,u,n)
pdecont(p,t,u,v)
h = pdecont(p,t,u)
h = pdecont(p,t,u,n)
h = pdecont(p,t,u,v)


## Description

pdecont(p,t,u) draws 10 level curves of the PDE node or triangle data u. h = pdecont(p,t,u) additionally returns handles to the drawn axes objects.

If u is a column vector, node data is assumed. If u is a row vector, triangle data is assumed.

The geometry of the PDE problem is given by the mesh data p and t. For details on the mesh data representation, see Mesh Data.

pdecont(p,t,u,n) plots using n levels.

pdecont(p,t,u,v) plots using the levels specified by v.

This command is just shorthand for the call

pdeplot(p,[],t,'XYData',u,'XYStyle','off','Contour',... 'on','Levels',n,'ColorBar','off'); 

If you want to have more control over your contour plot, use pdeplot instead of pdecont.

## Examples

collapse all

Plot the contours of the solution to the equation over the geometry defined by the L-shaped membrane. Use Dirichlet boundary conditions on .

[p,e,t] = initmesh('lshapeg'); [p,e,t] = refinemesh('lshapeg',p,e,t); u = assempde('lshapeb',p,e,t,1,0,1); pdecont(p,t,u)
