  • The following matplotlib commands may be useful:

    fill(x,y,'b')   # fill polygon specified by arrays x and y with blue
    axis('scaled')   # scale x and y axes the same way
  • Recall that to rotate a point $(x,y)$ through angle $theta$ you can can compute

    \(\hat x = \cos(\theta)x + \sin(\theta)y\)

    \(\hat y = -\sin(\theta)x + \cos(\theta)y\)

There is no quiz for Lab 15
