\title{Superimpose a function.}
\usage{
stat_function(mapping = NULL, data = NULL, geom = "path",
position = "identity", fun, n = 101, args = list(),
...)
}
\arguments{
\item{fun}{function to use}
\item{n}{number of points to interpolate along}
\item{args}{list of additional arguments to pass to
\code{fun}}
\item{mapping}{The aesthetic mapping, usually constructed
with \code{\link{aes}} or \code{\link{aes_string}}. Only
needs to be set at the layer level if you are overriding
the plot defaults.}
\item{data}{A layer specific dataset - only needed if you
want to override the plot defaults.}
\item{geom}{The geometric object to use display the data}
\item{position}{The position adjustment to use for
overlappling points on this layer}
\item{...}{other arguments passed on to
\code{\link{layer}}. This can include aesthetics whose
values you want to set, not map. See \code{\link{layer}}
for more details.}
}
\value{
a data.frame with additional columns: \item{x}{x's along
a grid} \item{y}{value of function evaluated at
corresponding x}
}
\description{
Superimpose a function.

\examples{
x <- rnorm(100)
base <- qplot(x, geom = "density")
base + stat_function(fun = dnorm, colour = "red")
base + stat_function(fun = dnorm, colour = "red", arg = list(mean = 3))
# Plot functions without data
# Examples adapted from Kohske Takahashi
# Specify range of x-axis
qplot(c(0, 2), stat = "function", fun = exp, geom = "line")
ggplot(data.frame(x = c(0, 2)), aes(x)) + stat_function(fun = exp)
# Plot a normal curve
ggplot(data.frame(x = c(-5, 5)), aes(x)) + stat_function(fun = dnorm)
# With qplot
qplot(c(-5, 5), stat = "function", fun = dnorm, geom = "line")
# Or
qplot(c(-5, 5), geom = "blank") + stat_function(fun = dnorm)
# To specify a different mean or sd, use the args parameter to supply new values
ggplot(data.frame(x = c(-5, 5)), aes(x)) + stat_function(fun = dnorm, args = list(mean = 2, sd = .5))
# Two functions on the same plot
f <- ggplot(data.frame(x = c(0, 10)), aes(x))
f + stat_function(fun = sin, colour = "red") + stat_function(fun = cos, colour = "blue")
# Using a custom function
test <- function(x) {x ^ 2 + x + 20}
f + stat_function(fun = test)
