I found this curves in a scientific paper and I would like to do the same thing. How can I plot my curves like this example ?

I would guess this was done with tikz in LaTeX. If you want to reproduce that with Matlab, you might have to draw all the coordinate axes yourself using plot3. I would start with the last plot and going backwards, so the plot in front are actually on top.

Hi Gaétan Andriano,
I understand that you want to create a single plot by stacking multiple 2D plots in order to highlight the changes in the plot when certain control parameter is changed.
To accomplish something similar, MATLAB has an inbuilt function called ‘plot3’, where in you can plot multiple 2D data at specific 3rd dimension values which can be according to the control parameter.
For more information on this, please consider having a look at the following links:

I hope this helps.
