Character vector or string scalar specifying the type of plot:
comma-separated pairs of

Value is the corresponding value.
Name must appear inside quotes. You can specify several name and value

The plot property name-value pairs apply to the first returned
Color of the line or marker, specified as an RGB triplet, hexadecimal color code, color name, or short name for one of the color options listed in the following table.
For a custom color, specify an RGB triplet or a hexadecimal color code.
Alternatively, you can specify some common colors by name. This table lists the named color options, the equivalent RGB triplets, and hexadecimal color codes.
Here are the RGB triplets and hexadecimal color codes for the default colors MATLAB® uses in many types of plots.
Width of the line or edges of filled area, in points, a positive scalar. One point is 1/72 inch.
Marker outline color, specified as an RGB triplet, hexadecimal color code, color name, or
short name for one of the color options listed in the
Fill color for filled markers, specified as an RGB triplet, hexadecimal color code, color
name, or short name for one of the color options listed in the
Size of the marker in points, a strictly positive scalar. One point is 1/72 inch.
Vector of handles to lines or patches in the plot.
Create a leverage plot of a fitted nonlinear model, and find the points with high leverage.
Load the reaction data and fit a model of the reaction rate as a function of reactants.
load reaction mdl = fitnlm(reactants,rate,@hougen,[1 .05 .02 .1 2]);
Create a leverage plot of the fitted model.
Use data tips to examine the observation with high leverage. A data tip appears when you hover over a data point.
Alternatively, find the high-leverage observation at the command line.
find(mdl.Diagnostics.Leverage > 0.8)
ans = 6
The hat matrix H is defined in terms of the data matrix X and the Jacobian matrix J:
Here f is the nonlinear model function, and β is the vector of model coefficients.
The Hat Matrix H is
H = J(JTJ)–1JT.
The diagonal elements Hii satisfy
where n is the number of observations (rows of X), and p is the number of coefficients in the regression model.
The leverage of observation i is the value of the ith diagonal term hii of the hat matrix H. Because the sum of the leverage values is p (the number of coefficients in the regression model), an observation i can be considered an outlier if its leverage substantially exceeds p/n, where n is the number of observations.
The Cook’s distance Di of observation i is
is the jth fitted response value.
is the jth fitted response value, where the fit does not include observation i.
MSE is the mean squared error.
p is the number of coefficients in the regression model.
Cook’s distance is algebraically equivalent to the following expression:
where ei is the ith residual.
The data cursor displays the values of the selected plot point in a data tip (small text box located next to the data point). The data tip includes the x-axis and y-axis values for the selected point, along with the observation name or number.
