I have the following code:


Plot[Re[WeierstrassP[2*x + 1 + I/3, Inv]], {x, 0, 1/2}, WorkingPrecision -> 10]

and I have completely blank plots. Increasing the value of WorkingPrecision also doesn't change anything. To the contrary, not using WorkingPrecision produces a plot. Is there something I'm overlooking here? I can use WorkingPrecision to plot simple functions, but I have yet to get it to work with Weierstrass-$\wp$ despite lots of work.

  • $\begingroup$ But what are you trying to achieve with your setting of WorkingPrecision, especially since you are reducing it from the default? $\endgroup$ – MarcoB Jul 24 '15 at 4:02
  • $\begingroup$ @MarcoB I had no idea I was reducing it. Is it because I don't have any decimals in the input? Sorry, I'm completely new to even basic numerics. $\endgroup$ – Benighted Jul 24 '15 at 4:44

Inv = WeierstrassInvariants[{1, I/3}];
Plot[Re[N[WeierstrassP[2*x + 1 + I/3, Inv], 100]], {x, 0, 1/2}, WorkingPrecision -> 100]

  • $\begingroup$ Right, that's precisely what I get too but that's without using WorkingPrecision. With WorkingPrecision, I get nothing. $\endgroup$ – Benighted Jul 24 '15 at 3:55
