Manuel, There is a package you can get at http://www.mathsource.com/Content/WhatsNew/0209-742 It looks like this will do what you want. Cheers, Ted Ersek ___________________ Any suggestions on how to plug into mathematica to derive parametric equations from a quadratic? My example is: y= - x^2/ 72 + x. Using pencil and paper I get: x= 24 Sqrt[2 t] and y= -16 t^2 + 24 Sqrt[2 t]. Thanks again for whatever Manuel
