I take your question as asking what the convention is for the
co-ordinate listing in the plot command (?). As I tried to indicate
with the variable names, the x-values and y-values are listed
separately, and multiple lines can be listed sequentially, as in
line0_x, line0_y, line1_x, line1_y... so the first variable is the x
values of the first line, the second is the corresponding y values of
the first line and then the same for the second line. If you're using
ipython (highly recommended), then you could find this sort of
information by typing:

In [1]: ax.plot?


In [1]: plt.plot?

which will bring up the docstring for the associated function.
