You can use the Epilog option of ContourPlot to show the
two-dimensional graphics object. Here is an example. Let's say you
want to show the graph of y = x^2 with x varying from -1 to 1
together with the contour plot of the function x^2 + y^2 over the
unit square. First generate the the plot of y = x^2.
curve = Plot[ x^2, {x, -1, 1}]
Then give the command to create the contour plot together with the
option Epilog -> curve[[1]]
ContourPlot[x^2 + y^2, {x, -1, 1}, {y, -1, 1}, Epilog -> curve[[1]] ]
The first part of curve (i.e. curve[[1]] ) is the primitive
graphics objects created with the plot, i.e. Line[{....}] etc. Of
course these two commands can be spliced together to get the final
picture all at once.
ContourPlot[ x^2 + y^2, {x, -1, 1}, {y, -1, 1},
Epilog -> Plot[x^2, {x, -1, 1},
DisplayFunction -> Identity][[1]] ]
