>Just interchange x and y, then get Max y for the new equation.

x^4 + y^4 + A(x^2) - A(y^2) + 2(x^2)(y^2) - Bxy + C = 0

By substituting x for y the above equation becomes :-

x^4 + y^4 - A(x^2) + A(y^2) + 2(x^2)(y^2) - Bxy + C = 0

So presumably the new dy/dx becomes:-

dy/dx = -(4x^3 - 2ax + 4xy^2 - by)/(4y^3 + 2ay + 4x^2 y - bx)

and in turn giving

4x^3 - 2ax + 4x(y^2) - by = 0

as the equation to be merged with the xy-altered equation:-

x^4 + y^4 - A(x^2) + A(y^2) + 2(x^2)(y^2) - Bxy + C = 0

Even if i'm right so far, I am again lost in finding the equivalent of

quasi's solution to the original equation.

Thank you for replying Leon
