Parameters

plot_resid()

Plot the residuals (data - model) for a data set.

Examples

Return the residual data for the default data set:

>>> rplot = get_resid_plot()
>>> np.min(rplot.y)
-2.9102595936209896
>>> np.max(rplot.y)
4.0897404063790104

Display the contents of the residuals plot for data set 2:

>>> print(get_resid_plot(2))

Overplot the residuals plot from the ‘core’ data set on the ‘jet’ data set:

>>> r1 = get_resid_plot('jet')
>>> r2 = get_resid_plot('core')
>>> r1.plot()
>>> r2.overplot()
