There are many kinds of charts for visualising how a quantity (e.g. number of students in a class) may be broken up into small sub-categories (number of blue-eyed students, number of brown-eyed students, etc.) that sum to the total. A pie-chart or a bar-chart would both work fine.
However, I have a quantity which is produced by multiplying various contributions:
$$ \Gamma =\alpha \times \beta \times \gamma \times \cdots $$
I am trying to find a sensible way of visualising the relative contributions of $\alpha, \beta,\ldots$ to $\Gamma$. My only thought is to make a pie-chart of the logarithms of each:
$$ \log \Gamma = \log \alpha + \log \beta + \log \gamma + \cdots $$
but that feels artificial. Are there any standard chart-types that are used to visualise this kind of information? Thanks.
