CTAN update: bezierplot

Date: July 24, 2018 11:05:22 AM CEST
Linus Romer submitted an update to the bezierplot package. Version number: 1.2 2018-07-23 License type: lppl1.3c Summary description: Approximate smooth function graphs with cubic bezier splines for use with TikZ or MetaPost Announcement text:
Changes: - new feature: ymin and ymax may be 'huge' (which is the numerical infinity in lua) - new feature: fixed samples may be set (if samples < 2, bezierplot chooses samples at the best points as usual) - the precision has been increased (more invisible samples, more digits) - more precise and faster computations for affine, quadratic, cubic functions and their inverses - no redundandt points after rounding anymore
The package's Catalogue entry can be viewed at http://www.ctan.org/pkg/bezierplot The package's files themselves can be inspected at http://mirror.ctan.org/macros/luatex/latex/bezierplot

bezierplot – Approximate smooth function graphs with cubic bezier splines for use with TikZ or

This package consists of a Lua program as well as a (Lua) .sty file.

Given a smooth function, bezierplot returns a smooth bezier path written in TikZ notation (which also matches ) that approximates the graph of the function. For polynomial functions of degree ≤ 3 and their inverses the approximation is exact (up to numeric precision).

bezierplot also finds special points such as extreme points and inflection points and reduces the number of used points.
