Can you see the intersection point called T_{0,2}? From this graph, I'd like to draw only the zoomed part surrounding the intersection point T_{0,2}. How can I accomplish such a thing?



            yticklabels=\empty, xticklabels=\empty,
            domain=-2:3, ymin = 0.07, xmin = -2, enlargelimits=upper,
            xtick=\empty, ytick=\empty,
            clip mode=individual,
            xlabel={$T_0$}, ylabel={$\Delta T$},
            \addplot[smooth,red,samples=50,domain=-2:3,name path=gaussian]{8 * gauss(1,0.75)};
            \addplot[smooth,blue,name path=line]{x*1.13 + 1.36};
                [name intersections={of=gaussian and line, name=i, total=\t}] 
                [red, opacity=1, every node/.style={above left, black, opacity=1}] 
                \foreach \s in {2,...,\t}{
                    (i-\s) circle (2pt)
                    node [above left] {}
            \node[circle,draw=black!80,fill=yellow,scale=0.3,label=below:\scriptsize{$T_{C}$}] at (i-1|-0,0.07) {};
            \draw[dotted] (i-2)--(i-2|-0,0);
            \node[circle,draw=black!80,fill=yellow,scale=0.3,label=below:\scriptsize{$T_{0,1}$}] at (i-2|-0,0.07) {};
            \draw[dotted] (i-3)--(i-3|-0,0);
            \node[circle,draw=black!80,fill=yellow,scale=0.3,label=below:\scriptsize{$T_{0,2}$}] at (i-3|-0,0.07) {};


  • Sorry, I am not sure that I understand what you want to achieve. Which zoomed part do you mean exactly? How should the part be zoomed? Commented Nov 10, 2022 at 15:43

  • Yes, this is what you wrote already, but how do you want it to look like? Commented Nov 10, 2022 at 16:00

    Do you mean automatically? Of course you can just manually set the domain to 1:2 and change the xmin/xmax/ymin/ymax accordingly. I don't think it can be automated because you first need to plot the curves before PGFplots can compute where the intersections are.
