newbie, please give me some pointers where to start for the shown graph

Dear Matplotlib users,

I have a fancy graph created in Origin that I want to emulate with
matplotlib:
The curves S(Q,w) have each a constant value for Q, they are stacked along
the Q-axis. I'm a newbie with matplotlib, can you please give me some
pointers, like which classes should I employ to make this figure?

The gallery is an excellent place to start for questions like these. Here
is the mplot3d section: http://matplotlib.org/gallery.html#mplot3d

Your figure is a combination of the 3d plot() calls for the line portions,
and 3d scatter() calls for the dots (see
http://matplotlib.org/examples/mplot3d/scatter3d_demo.html), and mathtext
for the labels (see
http://matplotlib.org/examples/pylab_examples/mathtext_demo.html). Let us
know if you have questions.

Cheers!

This is great Benjamin. Can you send the link to a similar gallery of image reading and display functions? I am especially interested in reading, writing and processing DICOM ultrasound images.

Thanks.

I have a newbie question?

What does this syntax really do? I would really like to understand the basic principles invoked here, especially the function of the ?.? separator. Is there a tutorial that will help me with such things?

Thanks.

Dipu,

I think you would benefit from Software Carpentry lessons to give you a leg
up. It is geared towards scientists, but it should be useful none-the-less:
http://software-carpentry.org/lessons/

My personal recommendation for a book is O'Reilly's "Learning Python":
http://shop.oreilly.com/product/0636920028154.do. I read this book during a
4 hour plane ride. I got on the plane with no python knowledge, and I came
off the plane with enough knowledge to understand the examples posted
online and ask specific questions on mailing lists.

I hope these suggestions are useful!
Ben Root
