How to use LaTeX for text rendering in Matplotlib

📅 2015-Mar-13 ⬩ ✍️ Ashwin Nanjappa ⬩ 📚 Archive

By default, Matplotlib does not use LaTeX to render the text in its plots. For certain documents, it may be necessary to use LaTeX for text rendering.

Matplotlib can be requested to use LaTeX using:

from matplotlib import rc
rc('text', usetex=True)

Tried with: Matplotlib 1.3.1 and Ubuntu 14.04
