I am currently developing some simulations using a nonlinear model w/ feedback in MATLAB where there exist some trajectories that are unstable.

I want to export this using matlab2tikz so I can have something that looks exactly like this in my latex document:

what I want

The main issue I am having is that when try to add this .tex file to my document it produces an error where pgfplots is unsure of how to handle to nans.

I tried after the fact inside of MATLAB to use something like

z = find(isnan(x_rec))';
        x_rec(z) = 0;

to get rid of all nans in the vector element that's be used for the graphs. But it still generates these nan values when I run matlab2tikz. Are there any fixes inside of MATLAB/LaTeX that I can use to address this? Any input would be greatly appreciated.

EDIT1: cleared

EDIT2: added requested changes by user comments

EDIT3: I followed precisely your suggestions as stated in your answer.

I did a slightly more complicated example but without all of the trajectories to see if I could apply it to the larger case.

I get the following error output:

/Users/.../Dropbox/Flight Models/F16 MRAC/Improvments/simulations/export/lqr_case3_test.tex:820: Missing number, treated as zero. [\end{axis}] /Users/.../Dropbox/Flight Models/F16 MRAC/Improvments/simulations/export/lqr_case3_test.tex:820: Missing number, treated as zero. [\end{axis}] /Users/.../Dropbox/Flight Models/F16 MRAC/Improvments/simulations/export/lqr_case3_test.tex:820: Illegal unit of measure (pt inserted). [\end{axis}]

  • Welcome ! I'm pretty sure **nan nan** shoud be replaced with NaN NaN – BambOo Nov 7 '18 at 12:17
  • Could you please add the complete code provided by matlab2tikz – BambOo Nov 7 '18 at 12:19
  • The code is lengthy is so I have included a pastebin link which you can please find attached: pastebin.com/ebHja1qy – drw5ff Nov 7 '18 at 12:36
  • matlab2tikz is definitely exporting nan values as "nan" and not "NaN" – drw5ff Nov 7 '18 at 12:36
  • My bad, I only meant there chould be no ** but you're right – BambOo Nov 7 '18 at 12:45

I cannot reproduce your error on my computer, but regarding the output you need, you can add and y filter option to your axis environment. This will apply some code to any y value of your dataset. See pgfplots manual section 4.22 p386.

In your case, the expression y filter/.expression={y < -60 ? -60 : y} checks if the y value of a data point is below -60 if yes it changes the values to -60 if not, it keeps its initial value.

In general, in graphics rendering softwares, nan are used to make stuff invisible while keeping good object dimensions, in your case, two column matrices.

enter image description here Update related to OP EDIT3

I simplified your MWE by removing all parts not related to the error you point out, and modified the flter criterion with y filter/.expression={abs(y) > 10 ? sign(y)*10 : y} so that any value too larg (absolute value above 10) is set to +-10, which solves the error due to this y value 562949953421312.

To conclude my answer, there is no issue with nan values, rather with large numerical values, which is totally normal.
