    C1Chart has a built-in engine for plotting functions. To use the built-in engine for plotting functions it is necessary to add a reference to the C1.WPF.C1Chart.Extended.dll  or the C1.Silverlight.Chart.Extended.dll in your project.

    There are various types of functions used for different applications. C1Chart provides the various types of functions needed to create many applications.

    There are two types of supported functions:

    1. One-variable explicit functions
    • One-variable explicit functions are written as y=f(x) (see the YFunctionSeries class).
    • A few examples include: rational, linear, polynomial, quadratic, logarithmic, and exponential functions.
    • Commonly used by scientists and engineers, these functions can be used in many different types of finance, forecasts, performance measurement applications, and so on.
    1. Parametric functions
    • The function is defined by a pair of equations, such as y=f1(t) and x=f2(t) where t is the variable/coordinate for functions f1 and f2.
    • Parametric functions are special types of function because the x and y coordinates are defined by individual functions of a separate variable.
    • They are used to represent various situations in mathematics and engineering, from heat transfer, fluid mechanics, electromagnetic theory, planetary motion and aspects of the theory of relativity, to name a few.

    For more information about the parametric function (see the ParametricFunctionSeries class).
