Using panels for clearer representations

Our second example will demonstrate to you how to create multiple graphics panels and plot a representation on each of them. We will also try to personalize the drawn curves by using different colors, sizes, and styles. Here is the example:

In: import matplotlib.pyplot as plt    # defines 1 row 2 column panel, activates figure 1    plt.subplot(1,2,1)     plt.plot(x,y_cos,'r--')    # adds a title    plt.title('cos')    # defines 1 row 2 column panel, activates figure 2    plt.subplot(1,2,2)     plt.plot(x,y_sin,'b-')    plt.title('sin')

The plot displays the cosine and sine curves on two distinct graphic panels:
