Here is a nice one.

Nice. As a link: Plot of e^(cos(x))-e^(sin(x))

Almost a box!

exp((x^2-16)(x-0)^2)+(y^2-20)^3=0

Making use of the probably spurious vertical lines almost produces a box.

Hi MIF;

How did you get it to output a link?

Hi,MathsIsFun;

You've got a wonderful idea! But I have to say that someone did have the same idea and he made an wonderful grapher called GrafEq. But unfortunatly, the function of graphing has been out of time, so it's only for win6 or winXP.

He is Jeff Tupper, and he found the super inequality bellow. Why super? Its graph contains itself where 0<=x<=105 and n<=y<=n+16 ! n=96093937991895888497167296212785275471500433966012930665150551927170280239526642

As expected, this grapher has bugs, too.It allows x/0=0, x^(1/3)¡Ý0. It is the same problem of f(x,y)≈0 that you faced with.

Why not share your commands? Let's do this wonderful project together ! Many friends of mine and I want to improve it after our Chinese University Enterance Exam.

I've got a Jeff Tupper's paper about this, would you like to read ?

There are some amazing graph made by it.

In China, we use "NB" to show admiration and "great", so I found the "NB equation", NB equation, NB plot, and NB grapher.

Hi Sumasoltin,

Working with someone on the project sounds great. But right now I am deep into another project.

I am so glad everyone likes it!

Some really wild equations, too

An example of where it goes wrong is bobby's "x^2*cos(x)=y*tan(y)" ... I don't believe the horizontal straight lines should be there at +/-π/2, they are an artifact of tan(y) changing sign, so the program assumes there is a zero in there.

The program has no way of knowing that the magical zero point is undefined. Any ideas on how to solve this?

A simpler example is "1/(1+x)=y"

Well, my stratege is finding out "/" to "remind" the program where it shouldn't show a blue point. Just plot a white line over it ! GrafEq has this trouble too and I use this way to hide the "patches". Another thing I want to say is that why not blod the plot so points-plot can be shown well?

Hi MathsisFun;

How about a color chooser for different colored graphs. Maybe the ability to graph 2 or more equations.

You could also add the best graph on this thread to the list of examples. So far, phrontister's dragonfly ( post # 33 ) get's my vote.

Aaa...Where's the dragonfly ?

Hi Sumasoltin;

You left out the http:\\ so the img tags did not work.

Try (y-(sin(log(x)))/(log(sin(x))))(y+(sin(log(x)))/log(sin(x))))=0

So that's why you did it. Either way,it is a very cool graph.

Wow!!! That's so awesome! Thanks!

Not a very pretty equation though.

This one is almost a grid:

(x+y)/(x*y)=sin(x)+cos(y)

This one,too:

sin(x)+cos(y)=e^(x*y)

This one produces some sort of chains or something like that:

sin(x)+cos(y)=e^(x*y)-e^(sin(x)-cos(y))

Posted a new version (v0.85) of Implicit Equation Grapher

There is now an option for shaded plots ("far", "near" and "slope"). Explanations on page also.

It would be really nice if everyone could give it a workout and let me know how it behaves!

hi MathsIsFun,

I tried a refresh but I'm still not seeing this image:

http://www.mathsisfun.com/data/images/equation-grapher-option-a.jpg

The one immediately below it (for comparison) shows OK.

http://www.mathsisfun.com/data/images/equation-grapher-option-far.jpg

I'm using Internet Explorer 10 in Windows 7.

It's probably because I'm not fully awake yet, but it wasn't immediately obvious how to change the plot style. Got there eventually.
