class InverseScale(**kwargs)[source]

Bases: proplot.axistools._ScaleBase, matplotlib.scale.ScaleBase

Axis scale that is linear in the inverse of x. The forward and inverse scale functions are as follows:

\[y = x^{-1}\]

Construct a new scale.


The following note is for scale implementors.

For back-compatibility reasons, scales take an Axis object as first argument. However, this argument should not be used: a single scale object should be usable by multiple Axises at the same time.
