I am trying to plot a joined plot. Some possible ways would be ListPlot with Joined -> True or ListLinePlot.

However, my data contains a big jump(a plot of order parameter describing a first order transition) and I want to erase a long vertical line which connects the first points before and after the jump.

To be specific, consider the following data

a = { {0,0}, {1,0}, {2,0}, {3,5}, {4,6}, {5,7} };

Then, we can observe that there is the largest jump between the data {2,0} and {3,5} and I want to erase the line between those points leaving other lines. What is the most elegant way to achieve it?

  • $\begingroup$ @SquareOne Thank you. This seems helpful even though my problem is slightly different. I will try the method described in the post and then check if it can be applied to my problem. Since they are not exactly the same problem, I will leave this post open at this moment. Thanks for the info. $\endgroup$

    $\begingroup$ Insert a Null (or anything that's not a real number) where you want a gap. ListLinePlot[{{0, 0}, {1, 0}, {2, 0}, Null, {3, 5}, {4, 6}, {5, 7}}] $\endgroup$

Insert a Null (or anything that's not a real number) where you want a gap.

ListLinePlot[{{0, 0}, {1, 0}, {2, 0}, Null, {3, 5}, {4, 6}, {5, 7}}]
