Thanks for the new feature. It is working well.

You asked for it, and I have (I hope) managed to do it in the new v0.91 Implicit Equation Grapher

It is quite fun to overlay plots and find similarities between them.

Let me know if it doesn't behave nicely.

I was pleasantly surprised by the results, but it was very slow. After some work I was able to speed it up and you see the results.

You and some others over the past 2 years have suggested Newton to me, it just took a while for me to get around to it

exp(x-y)=0 seems to suffer under the Newton algorithm, values below around exp(-7.5)=5.5e-4 lead to Newton heading towards zero. I will investigate.

]]>I will look at it now, but you probably sensed that already.

Runs really nice and quick. Worked on all of mine. I especially liked this one (x - y)^2 + x^2 = 0.

There is one weird effect I am getting.

When I plot this exp(x-y)=0 which should have no solution among the Reals. I get an empty graph but when I hit 2x or 10x I get a surprise.

Latest version (v0.90) now posted: Implicit Equation Grapher

You can still access the old algorithm (called "SignChange").

The "extra lines" seem to have gone, and (x-y)^2=0 works now.

Would really appreciate everyone testing it (try different functions) to make sure it does the best it can.

]]>You might consider a Newton type iteration to find your points instead of a change of sign.

The differentiations would be done numerically and there would be no algebraic manipulations. You could use it when the sign change algorithm you are using failed to find a point.

What warning?

Mathematica and Geogebra may do something analytical with the equation first.

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

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.
