Is is possible to use diagrams from Mathematica and put them in a LyX document?

This is not just restricted to a graph or table. Also, I am wondering if one can import diagrams from wolframalpha to LyX, as wolfram is considerably easier to use than mathematica.

  • LaTeX can import a variety of images. See this answer on choosing whether to include PDF or PNG in PDFLaTeX. So you need to export one of these types images from Mathematica which should certainly be doable. – Peter Grill Feb 26 '12 at 17:22
  • I'm talking about LyX btw, not LaTeX but thanks! – r.g. Mar 2 '12 at 13:24
  • @r.g. LyX uses LaTeX in the background, LaTeX code is generated based on your LyX file, and compiled with pdflatex (or xelatex/lualatex) to generate the PDF. – Torbjørn T. Jun 20 '15 at 11:58

Yes, because wolfram alpha (pro) can export to PDF: http://www.wolframalpha.com/pro/ In LyX, just go to insert > graphics and then browse to find your PDF.
