re size Y scale


you can explicitly set the yticks with that command:


Typically you would pass something like arange(start,end,step) into the yticks command.

This way you have full controll over the ticks. Documenation is here:

If you are developing with the pylab option the command above should work without the pyplot prefix.

If you continue having problems then please enclose the code with data if possible.
