Description: A Web-based interface to the Pisces program that allows you to compute implicitly defined curves in the plane. Choose from several pre-defined functions and modify their parameters and domains. Pisces is a Platform for Implicit Surfaces and Curves and the Exploration of Singularities, designed to provide tools for researchers and educators who want to compute the set of points that satisfy some equation. Pisces is potentially useful to mathematicians and scientists in a variety of fields, including algebraic geometry, astrophysics, computer-aided geometric design, and dynamical systems.
