# the random data
x = np.random.randn(1000)

fig, axScatter = plt.subplots(figsize=(5.5, 5.5))

# the scatter plot:
axScatter.scatter(x, y)

# create new axes on the right and on the top of the current axes
# The first argument of the new_vertical(new_horizontal) method is
# the height (width) of the axes to be created in inches.

# make some labels invisible
plt.setp(axHistx.get_xticklabels() + axHisty.get_yticklabels(),

# now determine nice limits by hand:
binwidth = 0.25
xymax = np.max([np.max(np.fabs(x)), np.max(np.fabs(y))])
lim = (int(xymax/binwidth) + 1)*binwidth

bins = np.arange(-lim, lim + binwidth, binwidth)
axHistx.hist(x, bins=bins)
axHisty.hist(y, bins=bins, orientation='horizontal')

# the xaxis of axHistx and yaxis of axHisty are shared with axScatter,
# thus there is no need to manually adjust the xlim and ylim of these
# axis.

axHistx.set_yticks([0, 50, 100])

for tl in axHisty.get_yticklabels():
