comment Construct an array spacing proportional to a function or other array
Thanks for your response, but this is a method of numerical integration --- I'm looking for a method of refining my sample spacing. I don't want to rely the even spacing of x or log_x.

No, and that's also a good way to lose a lot of accuracy

@Trengot no, I'm sure red is the second derivative and blue the first.

Definitely --- and I'm already doing that :)

comment Construct an array spacing proportional to a function or other array
Thanks @Alex, this was similar to my first idea - but I'm finding that it leads to wild variance in the total number of points (who cares about a factor of 2, but the number of points varies by more than an order of magnitude with very minor changes to the normalization). I think something like this could work, but needs much more fine tuning.

comment python matplotlib Agg vs. interactive plotting and tight_layout
The unsatisfying workaround is to remove mpl.use('Agg'), and to use fig.set_tight_layout(True) instead of fig.tight_layout() as suggested by @FelipeCorreia
