# DiscretePlot - adjusting the scale on Y axis to log with prescribed spacing

I have this picture of a residual Plot I am trying to reproduce (Y axis scale should be the same as in my plot): The code I have used is:

DiscretePlot[ResN[[i]], {i, 1, 10}, Joined -> True, Filling -> None,
PlotMarkers -> "Point", PlotRange -> {{0, 15}, {0, 1}},
PlotLabel -> "Res(n)"] ResN is a List with values for ten columns.

Any help would be appreciated. I browsed around for the answer, but without any success.

• Have you seen ListLogPlot? – N.J.Evans Apr 20 '15 at 20:56
• @NJEvans: Yes, I have, but it is not working in my case, because 'ResN' is not a rule ar a list of rules. Sektor: thank you for edit! – Mike Apr 20 '15 at 21:13

myRes[n_] := 1/n^3;
myFig = ListLogPlot[Table[{n, myRes[n]}, {n, 1, 10}],
PlotLabel -> Text[Style["Res(n)", 18]],
PlotRange -> {Automatic, {10^(-8), 100}},
Joined -> True,
Ticks -> {Automatic,
Table[{10^i, "1. E " <> ToString[i]}, {i, -8, 2, 2} ]}] • Your comment was very valuable. However, I had to change the definition of my ResN variable to be a List type. I made this with the use of Range. Now I can use ListLogPlot to plot the data. How could I modify your plot to have a value of 1 plotted at the 0 value of the abscisa axis (not at 1 as in thisa case)? – Mike Apr 21 '15 at 5:28
• Solved the problem with setting PlotMarkers-->Automatic. – Mike Apr 21 '15 at 5:41
• @Mike Res[n_] := 1/(n+1)^3 and Table[..., {n, 0, 10}]`. – David G. Stork Apr 21 '15 at 11:56
