Sometimes I wish life were always perfectly straightforward. As I said recently, I have figured out how to change the default sequence of colors for multiple graphs. I thought this would be a very short post… but there are a few additional things I need to cover in order to show that to you.
Since I usually use Mathematica® version 7, let me note that I am using version 8 for this work.
Let me start by showing you where we’re headed. If we make a list of the first five Legendre polynomials and ask Mathematica to plot them all, it chooses a set of five colors, one for each function:
