How to draw this semi normal'' curve

I am a new user ...use texmaker on Windows 8. No real idea how to draw a curve like this. • Hi and welcome. Your operating system (Windows 8) and the code editor (Texmaker) don't matter, the strength of LaTeX is to produce the same result whatever the system used. Jul 27 '20 at 18:29
• Okay, thanks... got it! So Is there a way to get the curve drawn? Jul 27 '20 at 18:32
• Yes, there are several packages that can do this: pstrick, TikZ, pgfplots, asymptote, metapost and certainly others. Jul 27 '20 at 18:37
• If you just want some curve without an explicit function, I'd just use tikz, choose a few key coordinates and the connect these using bezier curves ( using the coord .. controls ++coord and ++coord .. coord syntax, here I'd specify the coord in ++coord in polar coords as it often makes the bezier curve easier to understand) Jul 28 '20 at 6:05

\draw (81,121) node [anchor=north west][inner sep=0.75pt]  [rotate=-270]  {$\mathsf{y}$};

\end{document} An approximate analytic solution would be

\draw[domain=0:13, samples=51, thick] plot (\x,{0.8/(exp(-0.6*(\x-3.7))+0.2) +3.3*exp(-0.1*(\x-6.3)^2)} );
\end{tikzpicture}

Try this, not the smart one but can solve ur problem, you can scale the pic by changing the number in [scale=1] in row 8, I used geogebra, drawed your curve and expert as tikz code.

\end{document} Here a solution using TikZ and pfgplots:

\documentclass[tikz,border=5mm]{standalone}
\usepackage{pgfplots}

\begin{document}
\begin{tikzpicture}
\begin{axis}[
xlabel=t,
ylabel=y]

(748,140)};
\end{axis}
\end{tikzpicture}
\end{document} Edit: As requested, here the MATLAB code to extract the coordinated of the curve from an image (make sure only the curve is in the image and not the axis; you will need to clean/crop the image before you can use the following code):

[x, y]=find(I(:,:,1)<60);
% reduce the number of coordinates by factor 5
idx = 1:5:length(x);
x(idx) = [];
y(idx) = [];
% print out the coordinates so that they can be copied to your LaTeX editor
[y x-max(x)] %transform output as needed

Edit: In case you have the coordinates of the curve you want to plot generated somehow outside, you can go for an easy was to include the data from external files like this:
