[mg4852] Different Plots in the Same Window?

The general pattern is
plt1 = ...;
plt2 = ...;
..
..
Show[plt1, plt2, ....]

However with ContourPlot a little more is required:

With the following you will find that the polygons that give the
contour shading in cp2 cover cp1, which is not seen at all.

cp1 =ContourPlot[x^2 -y^2, {x,-1,1},{y,-1,1}]
cp2 = ContourPlot[x^2 +y^2, {x,-1,1},{y,-1,1}]
Show[cp1,cp2]

One way round this is to turn of the contour shading in the second
plot (you can of course turn it off in the firs as well).

cp1 =ContourPlot[x^2 -y^2, {x,-1,1},{y,-1,1}]
cp2 = ContourPlot[x^2 +y^2, {x,-1,1},{y,-1,1}, ContourShading -> False]
Show[cp1,cp2]
