### How can we make publication-quality PlotMarkers without version 10?

Based on Oleksandr's excellent design idea here is my re-implementation of his package which offers a much richer set of shapes. UPDATE from July 2022 A minor update: now the form ...

### Trying to visualize the Collatz conjecture

If you want to make several sequences of the Collatz function for turning it into a graph, you probably want to memorize, which parts you already calculated. What we try to do is to create a graph ...

### How to make this beautiful animation

Edit: Added the reversal and some refinements ...

### How to make this beautiful animation

I'd like to expand on Quantum_Oli's answer to give an intuitive explanation for what's happening, because there's a neat geometric interpretation. At one point in the animation it looks like there is ...

### How do I draw a pair of buttocks?

Scientific progress! In v10.3 with all the goodies in AnatomyData we can now use the simple code: ...

### Python-style plots in Mathematica

In this answer, I will concentrate on the colors only to create something like this Copying the colors from python is a very fast way to get similar results. Nevertheless, the best way to understand ...

### Is it possible to define a new PlotTheme?

Illuminated by @Mr.Wizard's answer, here I provide a complete example of a self-made plot theme, called "Academic". It can be used as a base theme. The axes ...

### How to Make a Sankey Diagram

Here's the start of a SankeyDiagram function: ...

### Hightlight all the self-intersections of a Lissajous figure

I will start with the most general Lissajous figure, which has a parametric equation as follows: $$x(t) = f_a(at+\phi_a) \\ y(t) = f_b(bt+\phi_b) \\ t \in [0,2\pi)$$ Where:  f_a, f_b \in \{\sin, \...

### How can we make publication-quality PlotMarkers without version 10?

Fortunately, Wikipedia has the answer, as long as we are content to restrict ourselves to non-intersecting closed polygons. This will probably be an acceptable limitation, given that excessively ...

### Drawing Clifford Attractors in Mathematica

Parameters: a = -1.24458; b = -1.25191; c = -1.815908; d = -1.90866; Compiled function used for iteration: ...

### Trying to visualize the Collatz conjecture

This is the Collatz function I know: ...

### Python-style plots in Mathematica

Using color functions efficiently in data visualizations is more of an art than a recipe, so don't worry if you're not "good" at it yet. It's only a matter of time :) Copying the color schemes from ...

### How to implement the sample-point process like the built-ins of Mathematica?

Plot uses two different algorithms depending on whether PerformanceGoal is set to Quality or ...
Accepted

### Make a beautiful Moiré effect

I feel that once you start with Moire patterns, there's no ending. The way I would replicate these is by making a grid into a function (like @JasonB) but also parametrise the angle of rotation into it:...

### How can I reproduce this mandala with Mathematica?

Update: We can get a shape similar (except for colors) to the one in OP using ScalingTransform as follows: ...

### How to draw an interactive, mouse clickable, 3D Bloch sphere?

Here is an attempt to draw a 3D Bloch sphere, on which we can select a point simply clicking on it with the mouse and obtain the corresponding qubit representation. In the code I made use of Szabolcs' ...

### Plot 3D model of DNA in Mathematica

The easiest way to do this is if you have a PDB file, then it's as easy as using Import. Here are a few examples from the RCSB's Protein Data Bank. To get the URLs,...

### How to implement the sample-point process like the built-ins of Mathematica?

Wanna listen to a story? :) It was around 2002 when I finally became fed up with ParametricPlot3D[] and its inability to adaptively plot space curves. Recall that ...

### Placing a ContourPlot under a Plot3D

Here's one using SliceContourPlot3D (introduced in 10.2) and Vitaliy's stylings. ...

### Place a small gap between axes and plot?

This can be done more-or-less easily with a combination of options for AxesOrigin, PlotRange, and ...
Accepted

### How can I plot this spirally surface?

A manual way of doing it is: ...

### How to generate image like QR code with Mathematica

This version of generation code is originally posted at wolfram community. I guess a story-telling type post would attract more upvotes and probably give some insight about how to 'solve problems' ...

### Import and Plot Git Commit History

This package provides couple of functions for plotting commits data from GiHub: ...

### How to plot data by counties?

Updated text I made a tutorial out of this answer and posted it on Wolfram Community. It's slightly different, and may be worth to check out. Data from Wolfram Knowledgebase The most ...

### Zoom in on a 2D graph

This is a prototype, it can not handle Text Inset and some more complicated directives efficiently but I don't have time / ...
