# Custom list plot ticks

Not as exciting as the buttocks question, but ...

For some list log plots, it is faster to calculate for certain log values. eg:

ListPlot[Table[Prime[n],{n,Table[10^j, {j, 1, 12}]}]


Is it possible to get these x-axis values to show up on the ticks?

 v = Table[Prime[n], {n, Table[10^j, {j, 1, 12}]}]
np = Table[{j, Rotate[Text[10^j], Pi/3]}, {j, 1, 12}];
ListLogPlot[v, Ticks -> {np, Automatic}] or try

 np = Table[{j, Text["10^" <> ToString[j]]}, {j, 1, 12}];


I'm not sure I understand your question, because you are asking about a log plot, but you aren't using ListLogPlot at all. Perhaps this is what you want?

ListLogPlot[Table[{10^j, Prime[10^j]}, {j, 1, 12}]]


Or even:

ListLogPlot[Table[{10^j, Prime[10^j]}, {j, 1, 12}],
Ticks -> {Table[10^j, {j, 1, 12}], Automatic}]


The latter sounds... maybe like what you want, but it can't be, because it produces a terrible looking x-axis.

• not quite, I would like the ticks spaced evenly, but I don't know whether this is possible. – martin Nov 25 '14 at 18:24
• ie plotted as ListPlot, but with ticks at values specified. – martin Nov 25 '14 at 18:26
• Does my first answer not do that? Or how about any variation of the second where the Table[10^j...] is replaced with something evenly spaced? – Kellen Myers Nov 25 '14 at 18:33
