Visualization

The default plot for each tensor is its directional magnitude, i.e. for each direction x it is plotted Q(x) = T_ijkl x_i x_j x_k x_l

setMTEXpref('defaultColorMap',blue2redColorMap);


C = stiffnessTensor.rand

plot(C,'complete','upper')
C = tensor (xyz)
  rank: 2 (3 x 3)

 33.29 34.39 58.68
 14.83 22.81 38.51
 84.87  37.7 88.17

set back the default color map.

setMTEXpref('defaultColorMap',WhiteJetColorMap)

There are more specialized visualization possibilities for specific tensors, e.g., for the elasticity tensor. See section Elasticity.
