How do I make sans serif superscript or subscript text in Matplotlib?


To make superscript or subscript text in matplotlib, use LaTeX representation.

Steps

  • Create x and y data points using numpy.

  • Plot x and y data point using plot() method.

  • Put the title with LateX representation using title() method.

  • Use xlabel and ylabel methods to set the label of the axes.

Example

import numpy as np
from matplotlib import pyplot as plt
plt.rcParams["figure.figsize"] = [7.00, 3.50]
plt.rcParams["figure.autolayout"] = True
x = np.linspace(-2, 2, 10)
y = 2**x
plt.plot(x, y)
plt.title('$Y=2^{X}$')
plt.xlabel('$X_{data}$')
plt.ylabel('$Y_{data}$')
plt.show()
