Question: Controlling Number of Plotting Points

January 10 2014 ateaktree 10



I'm trying to plot a function that contains an integral. I was finding that the plots seem to take far too long to make. When I just evaluate the function at a given point it computes almost instantly. So I tried setting setting adaptive plotting off and setting numpoints=5. This provides a plot very quickly (a few seconds) but if I raise the number of points up to 10 it runs indefinitely (I stopped it after 15 minutes). Could there be something else going on here? Does plot still evaluate at more than numpoints sometimes even if adaptive plotting is turned off?
