How to plot streamlines continuously?

6 views (last 30 days)
So here's my function:
[x,y] = meshgrid(-2:0.2:2);
hold all
dy = (x.^3+y)./(x.^2+y.^2) ;
norm = sqrt(dy.^2+1^2);
quiver(x, y, ones(size(x))./norm,dy./norm,0.75)
startx = -2:0.2:2; %Streamlines
starty = 0.*ones(size(startx));
streamline(x, y, ones(size(x))./norm,dy./norm,startx,starty)
looks pretty decent, but I wish to know how I can plot stream lines starting at each y-values that are 0.2 unity apart from each other. The code above just plots streamlines origining at 0.

Not entirely sure what you mean. Changing startx and starty values? In your code you set the starting values on the y-axis to 0.
starty = -2:0.2:2; %Streamlines
startx = -2.*ones(size(starty));

One little nuance: Do u know how I set opacity of streamline? I tried patchline add-on and whatnot, but doesn't seem to work.
