Save the files pst-func.sty|pro|tex in a directory, which is part of your 
local TeX tree. The pro file should go into $TEXMF/dvips/pstricks/
Then do not forget to run texhash to update this tree.
For more information  see the documentation of your LATEX distribution 
on installing packages into your local TeX system or read the 
TeX Frequently Asked Questions:

pst-func needs pst-plot (pstricks-add) and pstricks, which should 
be part of your local TeX installation, otherwise get it from a 
CTAN server, http://mirror.ctan.org

PSTricks is PostScript Tricks, the documentation cannot be run
with pdftex, use the sequence latex->dvips->ps2pdf.

pst-func – PSTricks pack­age for plot­ting math­e­mat­i­cal func­tions

The pack­age is built for use with PSTricks. It pro­vides macros for plot­ting and ma­nip­u­lat­ing var­i­ous math­e­mat­i­cal func­tions:

  • poly­no­mi­als and their deriva­tives f(x)=an*x^n+an-1*x^(n-1)+...+a0 de­fined by the co­ef­fi­cients a0 a1 a2 ... and the deriva­tive or­der;
  • the Fourier sum f(x) = a0/2+a1­cos(omega x)+...+b1sin(omega x)+... de­fined by the co­ef­fi­cients a0 a1 a2 ... b1 b2 b3 ...;
  • the Bes­sel func­tion de­fined by its or­der;
  • the Gauss func­tion de­fined by sigma and mu;
  • Bézier curves from or­der 1 (two con­trol points) to or­der 9 (10 con­trol points);
  • the su­perel­lipse func­tion (the Lamé curve);
  • Che­by­shev poly­no­mi­als of the first and sec­ond kind;
  • the Thomae (or pop­corn) func­tion;
  • the Weier­strass func­tion;
  • var­i­ous in­te­gra­tion-de­rived func­tions;
  • nor­mal, bi­no­mial, pois­son, gamma, chi-squared, stu­dent’s t, F, beta, Cauchy and Weibull dis­tri­bu­tion func­tions and the Lorenz curve;
  • the ze­roes of a func­tion, or the in­ter­me­di­ate point of two func­tions;
  • the Va­sicek func­tion for de­scrib­ing the evo­lu­tion of in­ter­est rates; and
  • im­plicit func­tions.
The plots may be gen­er­ated as vol­umes of ro­ta­tion about the X-axis, as well.
