I'm a Chinese high school student who love equation and function CRAZILY ! And I've found a lot about this mathematical game.Let's look into!

Absolution,I think it useful but unpleasant,can make any project practicable.As is known to all,the equation "ab=0" is equal to"a=0 or b=0".Similarly,"g(x,y)f(x,y)=0" is equal to "g(x,y)=0 or f(x,y)=0",so now you can use "plus" to combine different plots.And another equation "f²(x,y)+g²(x,y)=0" is equal to "f(x,y)=0 and g(x,y)=0",and in this way you can cut a part of plot.How? There comes the equation "|x-a|+|x-b|-|a-b|=0",whose graph is a part of the plane.Now,let's graph "(x-y)²+(|x-1|+|x+1|-2)²=0".It's a segment.We find |x-1|+|x+1|-2>0,so this equation can be simplified as (x-y)²+|x-1|+|x+1|=2.

This is easy,but not best.Keep patient and you're due to find an equation showing special meanings.Take your aim apart and find equations describe them,and combine them together.

But I dislike absolution,so I found the "fusion".We plus "x=1" and "(x+1/2)²+y²=1",and then we got "x((x+1/2)²+y²)=1".whose plot is the fusion of a circle and straight line.Similarly,many plots can be combine in this way.

There are lots of tips but I can only convey those with my poor English.To show more about this geeks' game I will show you some my original equations.

What's more,have you found some interesting graphs of equation?Share it if it's convenient to you!

Aaaaa......the most beautiful one is larger than 100kb

The function is:

y=abs[x]-abs[x/2+3]-abs[x/2-3]+3(x-14)(x-16)/abs[2(x-14)(x-16)]+3(x-12)(x-18)/abs[(x-12)(x-18)]+(sqrt[4-(abs[x-14]-abs[x-16])^2]+sqrt[36-(abs[x-12]-abs[x-18])^2])/4-3+(18+abs[2x+24]+abs[2x-24]-abs[2x+12]-abs[2x-12]-6(x-14)(x-16)/abs[(x-14)(x-16)]-6(x-12)(x-18)/abs[(x-12)(x-18)]-18(x+14)(x+16)/abs[(x+14)(x+16)]+sqrt[4-(abs[x-14]-abs[x-16])^2]-sqrt[36-(abs[x-12]-abs[x-18])^2])sin[5pi*x]/4

Everyone knows that the heart cruve is a closed cruve so we can't find a functiom with a heart-shaped plot.Really?

y=x^(2/3)+sqrt(4-x^2)sin(5pi*x)

Hi Sumasoltin;

Welcome to the forum.

For your heart curve, what is the interval for x?

Hi bobbym;

Thank you.I'm sorry to have forgot to say that.The first one is from x=-25 to 20,and the second is in [-5,5]

I found something interesting I set down before:Nike equation

These images are so cool! How did you derive the heart curve and Nike curve?

Hi Sumasoltin;

What are you using to do the graphing?

Hi bobbym;

There are lots of mathematical softwares,like matlb,mathematic,and to graph equations I prefer GrafEq(w w w .xamuel.com/graphs-of-implicit-equations)

y=x^(2/3)+sqrt(4-x^2)sin(5pi*x)

Are you sure this is the right equation?

Hi anonimnystefy;

Aaaa......they are created in different ways.Some are using the transformation in which we replace x by x±f(x).

Nothing yet, I am rechecking, probably the program.

Oh,I got it ! Different softwares define "x^(2/3)" differently.It should be (x^2)^(1/3)

Still not a heart graph!

Yes, I got that, I did not see the heart at first.

Here's another heart graph that you get by varying the constant with pi*x inside the sine function:

Good! It is nice. Did you try using sin(k*pi*x) instead of sin(5*pi*x) for arbitrary values of k?

ρ=1-cosθ , an old equation shows heart cruve (bottom instead I think).But I found "(x²+y²-1)³=x²y³" on WolframAlpha.

"Who found this?",I search it on Google and finally I learned it was Siehe Beutel.But how he found this?

We chosed Archimedes spiral: x²+y²=arc tan²(y/x)

we find that "tan x" is simillar to "x³",so we got

(x²+y²)³=(y/x)²

we find heart isn't a symmetrical shape,so we change "y²" by "y³"

As x becomes larger,the difference between "tan x" and "x³" becomes larger,so we plus "x⁴"

Aha~just a joke ! Maybe following can be turth.

He used a simple ellipse "x²+y²-xy=1".

We transform it to "x²+y²-1=|x|y".

NO ABS ! We get "(x²+y²-1)²=x²y²".

But now we lose the relation of that "x²+y²-1" is the same to "y" in "±" (I can't convey in proper way)

So we try the equation "(a²x²+b²y²-1)^(2k+m)=(by)^m*(abxy)^2k"

when a、b→1,there is the equation "

(x²+y²-1)^m=y^m"

So we have "|x|^m=((x²+y²-1)/y)^m=1"

Compare plots of "x²+y²-xy=1" and "x²+y²-y=1",we find only when x∈[-1/2,1/2] their difference become obvious,so m→0.

We make m=1，so k→+∞.

By trying,due to the equation's interval,when k=1 we get such a beautiful plot : (x²+y²-1)³=x²y³

Oh, that's funny ! Without blanks "= (" was transformed into negetive face!

I did use k instead of 5,but a known number looks better.

(x+13+sqrt((x+4)^2+4)-2sqrt((x+8)^2+4))^2*(12x*y^2+x^3-11y^2+x^2+7x-4)^3+(8y^2+6x^2-16x+4)^3*y^4*(x+13)^2=0 where x=-15 to 5, guess what's in it?
